DJ Furniture - everything you need to know
If you want to take the profession of DJ seriously, professional equipment is essential. But a good plant alone is not enough, because where do you build your plant? Do you need real "DJ furniture"? Which manufacturers are recommended? Or should I build my own DJ table? These and other questions are answered in the following text, so that you know everything about DJ furniture.
The Advantage of a DJ Console
A DJ console has many advantages, especially health. A DJ can get back pains very quickly due to the bent body posture, which is why it makes the most sense to buy a professional DJ stand. But be careful not to lower the desk too low, because an unadapted height of the table is bad for the back.
Which manufacturers are there on the market?
If you have already been a bit concerned with the subject matter, you will have come across the name "Zomo" in the DJ furniture shop. Zomo is recommended by many people - no matter if professional or hobby DJ - the price-performance ratio makes the difference to other manufacturers. The cleanly crafted, stable and durable Zomo products are the first choice of many DJs. Also for beginners the offers of Zomo are to be recommended, because Zomo also offers complete DJ equipment in a package.
How do I find the right table for me?
If you are on the road a lot as a DJ, you should of course make sure that you can take your equipment with you. Otherwise, as already mentioned, it is essential to pay attention to the height of the tables with which you work. The general rule is that you should be able to bend your arms at a 90° angle to avoid posture damage and back pain.
Of course, you have to take into account that not all DJ tables have the same height, this varies from club to club. Further, you should also make sure that the basic functions of the console can be operated smoothly, which should not be a problem when purchasing a new console. You should feel comfortable with the console yourself, that's what you should pay attention to.
Can I build my own DJ table?
Of course you can build your own DJ furniture. Here are some of the possibilities you can try out, for example:
a Lego console: This method is probably the most cost-effective and at the same time most playful. Since you can arrange the stones as you like, the individuality of the table is guaranteed.
IKEA furniture: You can also assemble your desk from IKEA furniture, in almost all cases the KALLAX shelf from the IKEA range is used as a starting model.
Trusses: You can also use trusses to build your furniture. Instructions on the various methods of home-made DJ creations are available in large numbers on the Internet.
Those who are skilled in craftsmanship will surely achieve success there. However, one should consider that "handicraft solutions" never guarantee the quality, e. g. of a Zomo Berlin deck that was developed especially for the wishes and requirements of a DJ setup.
Shelves and furniture for records, vinyl and CDs
If you accumulate a large number of records or CDs over time and like to listen to them or sort them, you won't be able to get past a storage facility for your vinyl records. Especially Zomo stands out due to its large variety of stylish storage systems or solutions for DJ CD racks, which are available in different sizes and with different frame capacities.
DJ laptop stands
The DJ of today hardly ever plays vinyl anymore, but has already switched to solutions with midi controllers or media players. So that the laptop doesn't break and the music library finds its safe place in the DJ setup, good and stable DJ laptop stands are almost inevitable.
Here it is worthwhile to put on quality to protect the sensitive and mostly expensive notebook or Macbook from shocks and misadventures. Nothing is worse, and more embarrassing than to break his only source of music during a live performance by a wrong movement or a blow.
