Stanton has announced that it will provide San Francisco State University’s DJ: Turntablism course with gear to teach the next generation of Bay Area DJs.

Beginning later this summer at San Francisco State University’s College of Extending Learning, Stanton will equip the course with STR8-150 turntables, 680 HP cartridges, a SA-3 DJ Mixer and FinalScratch 2. The course covers the history, equipment and technique of DJ turntablism.

“Because the course focuses on various techniques for DJing, both analog and digital, we felt that Stanton offers the most comprehensive product line for combining Vinyl, CDs and MP3s into the DJ mix,” states course instructor Bill Mitsakos. “We were particularly interested in FinalScratch 2 and its integration with Traktor DJ Studio, another product covered in the course. Final Scratch is critical to this course. We are committed to training students in the latest digital technologies, but recognize the incomparable feel of real turntables. We also recognize the quality and integrity of Stanton turntables and mixers and made them our only choice in outfitting our DDJ Rig.”
