Welcome to DJ Intershop
In these hard economic times, especially in the UK, where I am from, you want to make sure you get the best DJ equipment for your money. Learning this craft of being a professional disk jockey takes years of experience. When selecting your first DJ system do not buy the cheap stuff, even if you have to buy your system a piece at a time. When you buy more expensive equipment it will hold it’s value for years and if you change your mind and decide that DJing is not for you, then you will get back almost every penny you paid as long as you take care of your gear!
The first and most important piece in my opinion, is your controller. Today’s controllers offer a huge amount of incredible features! Some of the best mixers for the price is the Pioneer range that hooks up directly to your laptop allowing you to play digital files off your computer, thanks to a program called Virtual DJ.
In addition, you have your DJ speakers. As with the other DJ equipment it is not wise to purchase cheap speakers. Over the years I have used several different brands and models, however the choice of speakers depends on your venue size and mobile DJ’s should also consider the weight.
I have been a professional UK DJ for over 20 years and have used a wide range of equipment in my time. No matter how much you pay for your equipment it is important to look after it, using the correct carrying equipment is a must. DJ Intershop has a whole section on Flight Cases to ensure safe transportation of your equipment.
There are a lot of DJs in the UK and the competition is tough. That is why I would like to encourage any new DJs that are starting up to spend some of their hard earned money and purchase equipment that will put them above the other DJ’s out there.
