Eclectic Breaks Pro X Fade Reviews
The Pro x Fader is a masterpiece. I've been scratching for 10 years and it's taken me until now to find the right one. Mixer manufacturers still can't seem to get it right, us turntablists face a constant uphill battle against shoddy faders.
Once I'd cleaned and lubricated and adjusted my new fader with the specially designed kit that comes included, in a cool box (I know you all like to keep the box for a cool gadget) I put it to the test and was blown away. I used it at a gig the day after I got it and it gave me total confidence. The whole thing just feels right. The build quality, super smooth and light action, crisp cut in and micro fine lag adjustment. Even the fader knob is a nice shape, and a matt finish so your fingers slip easily over it. Words can't do it justice. Don't delay, just get one. May the funk be with you.

If you’re looking to replace your mixers cross fader anytime soon then I would take a serious look at this one from Eclectic Breaks.
I own a Vestax 06PRO Scratch mixer and was about to replace my fader (again) when I saw an article about this fader. Although my Vestax faders have always lasted quite well, I was always disappointed by the cut in time even with my curve adjustment at its tightest.
In the past, I have actually had to mod my faders using small sections of plastic to stop the fader returning home too far and thus eliminating the 3-4mm of dead sound. This little chore is annoying and time consuming so I was instantly drawn to the Eclectic breaks offer of cut in adjustment.
Anyway, it arrived and I set about installing it. Easy isn’t the word, certainly no harder then a standard replacement although I'd obviously recommend that you check you have a compatible mixer! I think I had to use a single cross head (Philips) screwdriver for the whole job and if you’ve replaced a fader before you’ll no doubt have the job done in about 10mins tops!
Adjustment and maintenance is an absolute doddle due to the tools and lube provided and the adjustable action is a brilliant idea. I set my fader to be extremely loose as I’m a scratch dj. If you’re planning on standard mixing you may prefer to keep it tight to avoid knocking it during sessions but at least for once you have a choice! No more WD 40 to free things up! Lol
Performce wise it is superb. With the fader set at its quickest, it responds amazingly and having tried a Vestax Samurai mixer with the digital fader it feels almost identical. I’ve had mine for 3 months now and the sound quality is still crisp and clean despite my attempts to break it with my vigorous heavy-handed scratch style. It really does feel like a solid bit of kit and I will be surprised if it doesn’t outlive my original Vestax faders.
Like with any fader the secret to long life is cleaning and maintenance. I generally clean my faders periodically once every 2-3 weeks. The benefits of the Eclectic Breaks Pro X Fade are really noticeable during these times as its user-friendly features make it as easy as possible to clean, adjust and get back to scratching. Overall I really cant fault it. My only question is when will they bring out up-faders of this quality?…..soon I hope!!
