Technic 1200's (preferably the 1210's in black)

Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable

"No Alternative. This is it. Although Pioneer just announced they are releasing a model similar to the 1200s (the PLX-1000's) after Technics stopped, so I am excited to give those a try." As most DJ's know, Technics are no longer in production, but in today's world there are plenty of alternatives with equal quality.

"There are only a few in the world floating around... Q & Hard Rich sent them to me for my What Goes Around album cover, the originals are just as dope, but it's nice to have the exclusive." While the gold editions can be hard to find, you can get the original Q-Bert needles here:

Technic 1200's

Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable

"The fact that I've had the same exact 1200s since the day I started DJing shows the durability and supreme functionality of these turntables. Although those particular turntables don't leave the house anymore, the Technics 1200s are always the first request on my rider. I'm going with the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" for these." With the Technics no longer in production, we feel the Pioneer PLX-1000's offer the same value if not greater.

"Although Rane offers cue points and loops directly on the mixer, I still prefer the dicers for their proximity to the turntables. They're also great for quick and easy tone play or drumming with the cue points."

Rane 62 Serato Mixer

Rane 62 Serato Mixer

"Whether I'm recording cuts and mixes straight into Ableton or performing live in front of thousands on the road, nothing helps me do the job better than the Rane 62 mixer. I've had this mixer for a year and I still haven't tapped into its full potential. I highly recommend this mixer to anyone trying to get the most out of their Serato software."

Beats Pros

Beats Pros

"I would say that aside from my sleep schedule - nothing suffers more than my headphones on the road. I haven't found a single pair that has lasted longer and sounded better over time than my Beats Pros. Their unbreakable metal frame and swiveling ear cups make these my favorite DJ headphones on the market."

Sony MDR-7506

"Although I love the Beats Pros, every DJ needs a backup pair of headphones on the road. The 7506s are the first pair of headphones I've found that sound just as good mixing a track down in Ableton as they do mixing tracks live in Serato. They provide a clean and crisp sound sans the overloaded low end that you tend to get in most DJ headphones."

Technic 1200's

Pioneer PLX-1000 Professional Turntable

"I still have and use the original pair that I first bought. If serviced and taken care for, these are some of the most durable and best turntables ever made. There is a reason that they are still found along with CDJs at most clubs." Unfortunately the Technics are no longer in production, but we highly recommend the Pioneer PLX 1000s.

"I've always been more of a hardware producer. I loved the MPC, but when I made the switch to Maschine, I immediately noticed the efficient work flow. Everything is faster. Everything is easier. As a producer who loves to make tracks anywhere, this is a perfect piece of equipment for the road."

Reloop RP8000

"For any venue or any type of shows either it be a club or concert I def need 2 Tech 1200's that are in mint shape. There's a lot of turntables that are bad out there. Nothing is like a pair of 12's." The Techs are hard to find these days but be sure to check out the Reloop RP8000's with built in MIDI control!

Pioneer CDJ's 2000 Nexus

"If turntables are out of the picture then I will need a pair of Pioneer CDJ's 2000 Nexus. The CDJ's are extremely helpful because of the USB slot on the deck. There's been plenty of time that I come to a venue that didn't have turntables and all they had was CDJ's and most of the time I forget to bring the CD's for Serato. USB slot is clutch!"

Rane 62 Serato Mixer

"When I'm on tour or playing out, I go with something more durable and familiar. I love Traktor, but it's still a second language to me compared to Serato. Rane is a great brand and their products can withstand the wear and tear of being on the road. The Dicers are another must have for me when using Serato."
