Where can I purchase this entire set of DJ equipment, and the most important thing would be what is the DJ equipment that I need?" below are the lists of the tips regarding DJ equipment to shed light on all queries and a lot more questions concerning this issue.

For instance you wanted to become an all around DJ; if it means that you aspire to become a Club DJ and doing battles against other DJs in town.

 Stanton T.92 USB Turntable

Tips for Buying DJ equipments – Bear in mind that you require turntables that are DIRECT-DRIVEN. These models of turntables feature the best and top of the line torque intended for cue recordings. The Stanton T.92 Direct Drive Turntable possessed sufficient power to allow aspiring DJ to get started at the price of $287.99.

IMPORTANT NOTE: These ST series of turntables only costs considerably more plus it includes a USB to transfer songs digitally towards your computer.

***These models of turntables feature arms of straight tone that are created basically for scratching. Whenever you wish to scratch your music and then mix it, you must upgrade your equipment similar to Stanton St-150 Digital Turntable With S Tone Arm because it has the tone arm in S-shape.***

I will prefer the T.92 because it is affordable for budget conscious DJs.

Slip mats

Tip for this DJ equipment - Create your personal DJ slip mats from felt which will cost you for only $5. Visit any fabric store in your place and purchase merely 2 yards of this fabric.

Trace the line on the left and outline it using a chalk intended for fabric or you could use a marker then cut the outline. You can have a perfect usable slip mat in an instant.

If you know what type of plastic your vinyl is made from then you can cut the similar size to serve as your slip mat? Just place it on top of your turntable platter and put your personally made slip mat on top of it. It can lessen the friction created.

You must purchase DJ cartridges for the fact that these turntables do not include any.
The following are my suggestions that are available for $116.97 each pair along with additional stylus.
