This is probably the most typical question for all beginner disc jockeys or also referred to as a D.J. for short. The very first thing to do would be to do a little research. What type of D.J. do you wish to be? There are various sorts of D.J.'s because they D.J. in different ways. The three Big Kinds of D.J.'s are:

Mobile D.J./ Mobile Entertainer
Club D.J.
Battle D.J.
Mobile D. J.

They take their equipment on the road and do gigs at Faculties, private parties, special events and the like. They use almost all sorts of disc jockey equipment such as karaoke equipment.

Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.

They get the crowd involved with playing games with the music, singing, playing audio along with other celebration favorites which involve entertaining the crowd.

Mobile D.J.'s usually possess a disc jockey PA system that they bring with them into the gig.

This permits the disc jockey to broadcast the music . A PA system consists of an amplifier and 2 speakers.

Club D. J.

It's the Club disc jockeys ability to perform many types of songs and make it sound good that makes them stand out. That's the reason why they get paid the big bucks.

To most it is not a mystery why the club disc jockey is the very sought after D.J.. Among my favorite club disc jockeys that cross all types of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money out of Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the fastest hands on the faders and Pioneer ddj-sx3 turntables I have ever observed.

For their songs most club disc jockeys utilize Technics SL-1200/1210 Turntables. You Can now locate bar D.J.'s using Final Scratch by Stanton or Serato Scratch Live by Rane. Club D.J.'s"play with the audience" meaning they have developed the ability to read the crowd and know what songs to play based on crowd response.

This takes some time to develop but once you've mastered this step it permits you to explore fresh songs in the club that you may not otherwise play due to inexperience. This is a superb way to make a livelihood if you are able to find a home in a number of clubs.

Battle D.J. or Turntablists

They are a special group of highly skilled disc jockeys that do tricks with the turntables and mixer. Through years of practice they have been in a position to develop their skills of scratching, mixing and most importantly beat juggling.

Beat juggling is if a D.J. is able to control two documents to the point where it sounds like he's producing a new defeat from two distinct ones. Since these skills are highly developed most combat D.J.'s can be a team D.J. or a cellular D.J. since the abilities cross all types of disc jockeying.

When you know what sort of D.J. you wish to be you want to learn what kind of equipment disc jockeys use.

The 4 questions any fresh disc jockey must ask before buying any new equipment are:

Just how or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing( for celebrations )?
Just how much do I want to spend?
Where will I purchase all this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I really need?
Every of the 3 types of disc jockeys I mentioned above utilizes the same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

2 (2) turntables like the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
Two (2) slipmats
2 (2) cartridges like the Shure M44 7 mounted on a Technics Headshell
One (1) mixer like the Rane TTM56 (Mixers)
One (1) set of cans such as the Stanton Pro D.J. 3000 Headphones
