Some answers to posters above:

1. All existing Jobo lift (for CPA\CPP) will work with this machine. The current lift is the same design with minor improvements (see here for details: http://www.catlabs.info/why-do-i-need-a-jobo-lift)

2. Support for Jobo machines is here - http://www.catlabs.info/repair-service
Most parts are available for most machines, and we offer support for ALL Jobo users and analog products, past or present.

3. Upgrades are available, as are replacement motors, fully refurbished machines, used late model CPP2 or CPA2 machines and basically anything you need to keep your processing and or machine going forever.

Expert drums are precision hand crafted, and were never cheap - they are worth every penny!
