About DJ Equipment

Musician’s Friend has all the best DJ gear you need to raise your game, whether you’re new to DJing or a seasoned professional. If you prefer the feel of vinyl we’ve got the latest direct-drive turntables, such as the Technics SL-1210GR and the Pioneer PLX-1000. Modern digital DJs will find we also have the hottest DJ controllers, such as the Pioneer DDJ-SX3 and Denon MCX8000.

We also offer PA systems for both mobile DJs and venues. With trusted brands such as QSC, JBL, Electro-Voice and Mackie, our lineup of PA gear—including powered speakers, studio monitors and power amplifiers—make sure you sound your best. Of course no event is complete without proper lighting, so check out our selection of dynamic effects for the stage, venues and mobile applications. From LED wash lights, spotlights, fog machines and lasers, Musician’s Friend carries all the top brands including CHAUVET DJ, ADJ, Blizzard and Martin.

Having the great DJ equipment is only one challenge a DJ faces. Even with the best DJ gear and sound system, it takes years of dedication and practice behind the decks to become a proficient DJ. The same basic skills apply, whether you’re a mobile wedding DJ or you have a residency working inside the DJ booth of a plush night club. No matter your goal as a DJ, building a strong foundation based on the fundamentals is your first task.

Whether you’re rocking the party with a portable all-in-one controller or using direct-drive turntables with Serato DJ Pro, one of the most important skills you must develop is the ability to read a crowd. Recognizing what genres of music the audience does and doesn’t like is key. Reading your crowd also relates to the direction you will take the music. In most cases you wouldn't start out a DJ set with your hardest-hitting track. Ideally, you would start out with a lower energy level to warm up the crowd. While paying attention to how they are responding, you would slowly raise the tempo of your song choices. But it’s also important to be aware of falling into a rut and becoming monotonous. Even if your audience seems to enjoy old-school hip-hop, they may eventually lose interest if you're not mixing things up a bit. The same holds true for fans of house music, EDM and other genres of dance music. Take your audience on a musical journey to keep them interested and surprised.

Another skill a DJ should have is the ability to beatmatch while they are mixing two songs together. Even if you’re using digital media players such as the Pioneer XDJ-1000MK2, you need to be able to beatmatch. In order to achieve a smooth transition, a skilled DJ will adjust the pitch of an incoming track so that it matches the tempo of the outgoing track. A track’s tempo is measured by the number of beats per minute, BPM. Since the dawn of DJing this has been a skill developed with years of practice, using a manual pitch slider on a turntable and a keen ear. Nowadays, modern software and DJ controllers make this task simple with the push of a button. But the sync button and DJ software are not foolproof. Sometimes, there’s no substitute for the human ear, no matter how advanced your DJ gear is.

Hip-hop, battle DJs and turntablists traditionally make much quicker transitions from one song to the next. They’ll often scratch, backspin or simply perform a fast cut to a new track. In contrast, DJs spinning house, techno, and other genres of electronic dance music prefer much longer transitions. They will often layer songs on top of one another for minutes at a time. In either case, the idea is the same: maintaining the same tempo on the dance floor and avoiding awkward BPM changes. As with any rule, there are exceptions depending on the music genres and the setting in which you're DJing.

If you're thinking of becoming a DJ, the first thing to consider is your setup. You’ll need to carefully consider what equipment will serve you best. Modern digital DJs favor media players and all-in-one controllers. These devices make it possible for a DJ to show up for a gig with nothing but a USB thumb drive of music. Some DJs—especially more experienced ones—prefer the using analog turntables. These can be used with a digital vinyl system (DVS). Serato DJ Pro is a very popular DVS product, but there are others including Native Instruments' Traktor and Pioneer’s rekordbox dj. The beauty of DVS systems is the ability to play both digital files and traditional vinyl records.

Media players such as the Pioneer CDJ-2000NXS2 and the Denon SC5000 Prime allow you to easily visualize and control tracks. Controllers such as the Pioneer DDJ-SZ2 seamlessly pair with Serato DJ software. This pairing creates a great platform for mixing, looping, sampling and scratching. The Rane TWELVE Motorized Battle MIDI controller blurs the line between analog and digital. It offers a full-size 12 in. vinyl with a motorized platter and combines the traditional feel of old-school vinyl DJing with modern technology.

If you want the best sound possible, look no further than our lineup of mixers. Purists will enjoy the features built into 2-channel mixers such as the Rane SEVENTY-TWO and Pioneer DJM-S9. Both offer control of Serato DJ Pro with performance pads for effects and loops. With 24-bit/48kHz audio resolution and onboard effects, both will give you the sound quality you demand.

Some DJ events demand more flexibility and higher audio quality. That’s why so many nightclubs and festival stages feature 4-channel mixers. They give you the ability to connect more input sources at once. The often provide more output options as well. Pioneer’s flagship DJM-900NXS2 offers studio-quality 64-bit/96kHz audio and a wide range of connections. It also supports Serato DJ Pro and has two USB inputs.

Whether you’re just starting out as a DJ or you’re headlining stages around the world, we’ve got the gear to help you sound your best.
