Collector transforms toy Fisher-Price turntables into functioning, portable DJ decks

Daniel Barassi didn’t want to settle for “some flimsy, groove-killing portable turntable,” so he customized an old children’s Fisher-Price battery-operated turntable.

He began his project by replacing the diamond needle cartridge with a Shure M44-7 “DJ” cartridge. After seeing what a difference that made, he continued the modifications in his quest for perfection. He tinkered with the original power button and volume control for a final product he’s calling a “Fishure-Price” turntable.

While Barassi says he isn’t looking to mass-produce his modified Fisher-Price turntables, his modified turntable has led to href="https://www.instagram.com/fishureprice/" >multiple Instagram videos and contributions to  href="https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/45friday/" >#45Friday on Instagram, where musicians, artists and writers select their favorite 45 of the day.
