Vestax owner Hidesato Shiino has issued a statement to bring clarity to the state of Vestax old and new. Read it in full here.
We all miss Vestax. So when a domain called stpvestax pops up, and offers clues towards a 4 channel mixer with proper analogue VU meters, we get giddy.
A reluctant sale, but up for grabs is this Vestax VRX-2000 vinyl cutter. It needs just a little work and is sold as a project with a lot of blanks too.
I’ve uncovered some gems while cleaning up. These Vestax Extravaganza DVDs hark back to a time before even skratchworx, and can be yours.
Vestax as we know it has closed down, but that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel has been revealed by Mixware, their US distributors.
It’s nice that DJWORX is a place that the DJ industry can come to and feel part of something, even if they don’t always make themselves known. And although we’ve had to report the difficult news of Vestax’s closure, Toshi Nakama, the President of Vestax dropped me a thank-you note to pass on to our readers for all the support we and you have given Vestax over the years.
In the total absence of anything official, we’ve held off passing any comment about Vestax rumours. But with news hitting the streets that Vestax has finally filed for bankruptcy in Japan, all we can do is lament the passing, hope that they come back, and offer a deep respectful bow for all the good things they brought to DJing.
It’s a question that’s often asked but has never had a definitive answer. How many QFOs and Controller Ones were actually made? We have the answer.
Vestax is known for left field thinking. And their new Vesta Audio ACT-X100 turntable falls into that category. Calm down — it’s not for DJing with.
Having taken on Vestax as a client in the USA, the Mixware stand at NAMM was full of Decksaver Pro and LE, Magma Bags, new UDG hardcases and Vestax.
