Frustrated with the products being offered on the market, professional DJ company, Eclectic Breaks, has developed the world's most advanced 'DJ friendly' analogue crossfader. The EB Pro-X-Fade crossfader utilises 100% conductive plastic tracks for longer fader life, it allows DJ's to physically change the feel of the fader to suit their particular needs.
