“The key new feature is the new third generation XCP plastic conductive track technology.
The ‘essential’ fader offers amazing strength and durability with extra long life. The fader stem is thick and strong and is 8mm wide. The fader cap is sloped/triangular. The fader is also very easy to take apart to clean as you just pull the cover off.
The ‘essential’ extra long life conductive plastic tracks, (XCP) can be maintained with a specially formulated Pro X Fade ‘Ether’ lubricant which has been developed for the new tracks. Older versions of the PXF have a green PCB board and this new ‘essential’ has a black PCB board.
By improving the tracks using 3rd generation XCP tracks and together with the PXF ‘Ether’ lube, it means the fader will last longer between needing to be cleaned, in normal conditions. So now you can enjoy your fader for longer. The PXF ‘Ether’ has got lubricating and intense cleaning agents, which unlike the previous use of just Caig lube, doesn’t leave residual on the tracks, as when Caig was used on it’s own, when it dried, it left a layer which would attract the build up of dirt. With the new formula and track, Pro X Fade have significantly reduced this issue.
With the ‘essential’ fader, you also get the quality sound, firm control, smooth buttery feel and a warm, musical feel of a precisely configured fader which adds an almost harmonic tone to your scratching.”
