“Turntable Lab (“TTL” or “The Lab” as we’re known to our customers) was established in 1999 by Anthony Cattarina, Jasper Goggins, and Peter Hahn in Peter’s college apartment. The trio formed the idea for the Lab based on numerous negative experiences at stores that sold dj equipment: both big musical instrument chains and shady Canal Street stereo stores. Turned off by haggling, uninformed salesmen, and questionable product, Turntable Lab built its business on fair pricing, informed reviews, and a well researched selection of “Lab approved” items (aka The Formula). Most of the Lab’s employees are working djs / producers / musicians, which helps to ensure this high standard.
The business model was an immediate success, establishing rapid growth and a dedicated customer base. Turntable Lab soon applied their business model to other areas including vinyl records, production equipment, audiophile gear, clothing, and books. Each expansion has been met with success, and today Turntable Lab is a recognized tastemaker in all those areas.
To bring the Turntable Lab experience directly to consumers, Turntable Lab opened its first retail location in 2001. Currently the Turntable Lab headquarters is located in Brooklyn, New York”.
