Simple DJ Equipment Packages for Small Events
Hiring a DJ for a small event can be expensive, particularly if you don’t have any of your own equipment. However, if you’re running a business that often hosts events, or even if you want to have a portable solution for family and friends, you can actually build your own system for a relatively low price.
Even if you’re currently an amateur DJ looking to make your way into the professional market, investing in a small DJ equipment package will give you the essential tools that you need to perform in small venues like clubhouses, halls, and private meeting rooms in events centers.
If you’re looking for the best affordable DJ equipment packages online, then you can find plenty of great options at Digital DJ Gear.
What to Look for When You Want to Buy DJ Equipment
With modern technology, the number of devices that you need for a simple setup has been reduced. In the past, you would need heavy turntable decks, a mixer, and a PA system to take your DJ show on the road. You would also need to invest in vinyl records, or CDs if you were using CD decks. With modern systems, you can get a mixer and digital DJ controllers in a single package, with options starting at reasonably low prices.
One great piece of gear for a simple DJ setup is the Hercules DJ Control Wave M3. This is a fantastic device for beginner DJs and professionals who need something ultra-portable for casual gigs. It includes a built-in mixer, two virtual deck DJ controllers, and it can interface with iOS and Android devices, as well as Mac and Windows PCs. You’ll be able to carry your digital music collection easily, and plug right into this awesome unit whenever you’re going to perform in a small venue. Although it doesn’t quite have all of the features of a larger DJ controller, it is versatile, compact, and lightweight. These benefits make it perfect when you are putting together a simple DJ equipment package.
With your controller and music taken care of, you’ll still need a basic PA system to get your sound out to the audience. While some venues will have their own systems, many private venues will not, especially those which aren’t specifically designed for events where a DJ would be required.
You don’t need to invest in a large live sound system for smaller events, and you can instead go for an affordable (but reliable) option. Your best bet would be to choose powered speakers. These won’t require separate amplification and make things easier when you are setting up and packing down. For the smallest events, you’ll be able to get away with just two powered speakers, and if you’re on a tight budget, you can skip the speaker stands when you first buy the system. Although stands can help the sound to cut through a crowd, you can get by without them until you’re able to spend a little more money. A pair of EV 1000W powered speakers is a good starting point, particularly the ZLX-12P model.
If you have some flexibility in your budget, then consider choosing a pair of Peavey PVXp15P speakers. We offer these in a package with stands and cables, ensuring that you have everything for your short and long term needs.
With a digital DJ controller and a set of speakers, you’re all set to DJ at small to medium sized events, and you won’t need to carry a whole truckload of gear around with you. When you buy DJ equipment packages from our online store, you can even get free shipping throughout the contiguous United States.
