The Scratchophone is an ”instrumental unity” for scratching, all in one and portable.
The Scratchophone can be carried and used anywhere in a wide variety of new situations:
jamming with friends or showing your skills in public, playing live on stage.
The Scratchophone is a custom, hand-built instrument. Every one is unique.
After placing your order, we will work closely together to find the best solution for you.
With the help of computer generated 3D renders,
you will be able to choose colours and see your new Scratchophone taking shape.
If you have any ideas about special features, upgrades or modifications, let’s talk!
We thrive on customer feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
” I was exasperated with my classic DJ gear setup, I couldn’t move it to play with others musicians, I couldn’t practice in the sofa or outdoors unlike the guitar …” Many DJs from around the world have being asking for a shoulder strap type DJ equipment: A portable unit that can be used to entertain the audience visually and to appeal the player’s skills and techniques. Prototypes were made several times but never came to a satisfying level. Main reason was because there wasn’t a way to avoid the needle from skipping,especially when walking… I gave myself the mission to design this new “scratch only” instrument. After a dozen of prototypes, I had what I always wanted : the first portable and all in one scratch instrument. I take great pleasure in building custom instruments, to satisfy all the needs of Scratch DJ’s from all around the world. Every instrument bearing the Scratchophone name is produced in my own workshop, using only best DJ gears. All instruments are built with an attention to detail, and production is limited to only a few per year. It is a specialised scratch instrument for those who want something a bit different !
