To most of you it will be clear by now that in order to be a DJ or turntablist you need a few things to get started.

Just to remind you, here’s a quick list:

  • 2 turntables
  • 1 mixer
  • A few records
  • Headphones

As a turntablist you can’t just use ‘any’ turntable or ‘any’ mixer that’s out there. Much like a race-car driver can’t race in ‘any’ car on the circuit. As a scratch-DJ you expect a good performance from your gear. More information on this subject can be found in other ‘gear’ ┬ásections of the site.

I would like to note here that some turntablist prefer not to use headphones, that it’s sometimes handy to have 2 copies of the same record (when you’re beat juggling for instance) and that you might as well practice with your headphones on instead of banging it out of your speakers (people living with you will like it :).
