How to choose a DJ deck stand

If you are a DJ (Disk Jockey) or aspiring to be a professional DJ, one of your most coveted pieces of equipment will be your deck stand. This is what normally consists of all your displays as well as CD players and computer, to store additional songs that do not fit on your CDs. This article will examine the process of choosing one such deck.

About the stand

You might think that a DJ deck stand is of little importance, when in fact, it is one of the most important things for a DJ to have. This is analogous to a desk for a student. It helps you as a DJ to lay out an organise all of your work needed to have a successful business. While you could always go ahead and buy the cheapest deck, it will not necessarily be the absolute best choice for your current business. As a matter of fact, many of these extremely cheap stands for DJs do not even have a space for your mixers. This is one of the many reasons why it is crucial to buy a deck stand that will last you a life time.

Choosing the stand

The next matter of business will be choosing a stand. This section will describe characteristics to look for when doing so. Colour Make sure that the colour of the deck stand matches your surrounding equipment. Not doing this will make your stand an eye sore, which is the last thing you want to happen if you are to run a successful and long-lasting business. Features Be sure that your stand can accommodate all of the many features that you require. It sometimes looks bad if you are forced to bring in additional tables, and doing so can look extremely unprofessional. For example, if you have equipment, always be sure to show it off. To people unfamiliar with the profession, sometimes even simply having a cool looking mixer can grab the crowd's attention. Thus, people are more likely to hire your for their special occasion. Final word A good rule of thumb is to always remember what you liked about the DJ at parties that you have gone to, and what his or her stand looked like. Furthermore, pay attention to how the DJ decks and mixer looked like.
