Yes there are frequency converters available but most are relatively over rated (industrial) for your requirement such as MDS Power or VisiComm Industries. What you need is a Low Power Solid State Frequency Converters lower than a
Electrocon Frequency Converters. However, I expect this devices to be rather expensive.

A few other options you may want to consider:
1. Contact the store where you bought if from; swap with an International version (Model SL-1210 Mark II; same price as SL-1200 Mark II); dual voltage switchable on rear of unit: 120 volts/60 Hz (U.S.) or 220 volts/50 Hz (Europe). You hopefully just spend for the cost of shipping + a restocking fee;
2. Contact 3rd party Technics TT specialist like TopDJGear, Quality Electronics, Planet DJ or DJHardware
and inquire if they would supply you the part(s) that you need to convert the 1200 to a 1210; or
3. Offer a swap on eBay.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

No need to worry about that. The direct drive on these turntables will adjust for hz setting automatically.

Can i use a 50hz 220V SPLIT TYPE AIRCON TO 60HZ 220V

you probably can but it will be damaged over time, you would need to replace the motor inside to handle 60hz using the 50hz can do damage to the motor, or even cause a fire. also if it has a power capacitor that asys 50hz on the power line to the unit inside this would been changing as well.

Is it possible to use this turntable from UK 220V 50Hz, in the US 110V 60Hz?

Go to Radio shack or other electronic places and buy the correct converter for it.

Have paint spraygun 60hz. want to use it in 50hz area. what can i do

Unfortunately, products are designed to work with specific voltages and frequencies. Some devices have broader ranges of voltages and frequencies because they use electronic power suppies (often called "switching power supplies") as opposed to the costlier, heavier transformer types. Nearly all devices that have motors or have a transformer will be designed to operate on either 50 or 60 hertz - not both. Use of these devices with a frequency other than what it is designed for will run too fast / too slow and will overheat to the point that it may become a fire hazard. Unlike voltages that can be easily stepped up or down with a transformer, there is no easy, inexpensive way to change frequency.

You should replace your "60Hz only" equipment with 50Hz or 50/60Hz equipment, or if a short term relocation, rent the correct 50Hz equipment instead.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Bought a singer from the state but cannot be used in australia what should i do?

If it is an electronic or computerized machine, you are out of luck. USA has 110 volt 60Hz current, Australia has 220 volt 50Hz. A transformer can change 220 to 110 volts, but it cannot change 60Hz to 50Hz.

Can I use my EuroPro 416 Sewing machine with 220V electricity?

A transformer will not change the frequency of the supply, only the voltage.

It may be possible to obtain a box of electronics to convert 50Hz to 60Hz, which would solve the problem.

A machine designed to run on 60Hz will run slower on 50Hz and may run hotter. If it burns out due to overheating, then a new motor designed to run at 50Hz should be fitted. You could have peace of mind if you fitted a new motor (which might be cheaper than an electronic frequency converter.

Covert 230V 50Hz to 230V 60Hz

To convert to 50Hz will be expensive as the Aircon needs alot of startup power. You could ask maker if 50Hz will be ok, usually motor will run slower so unit will be less efficient, alway check with maker. Or try supplier to see if they will exchange for what you ordered first.
