We caught up with the guys from Decksaver at the BPM show. If you’ve never seen a Decksaver before they look like a plastic cover that go over your turntables, mixers and controllers. Most people assume these are just fancy dust covers but they are much more than that. Whilst they do protect your equipment from dust, and you would be wise to not ignore that as dust can damage your $1000 equipment much more than you may think, especially faders, they do other things to.
Decksavers are made from a super special plastic, using some of the same materials in bullet proof glass meaning you can jump on these in trainers or high heels as we saw at the show, drive over them and they’ll keep their original shape. They’ll even protect your equipment from water spills. Whilst you’ll never drive over your deck with one of these on it does mean they’ll take a battering whilst protecting your equipment.
If you spend $1000 on a controller whats a few extra dollars to stop water killing your equipment or a heavy object falling on it? Seriously, get some decksavers for your gear and protect it, its worth the investment. Don’t believe us, check out our quick video showing the battering they can take.
