5 Holiday Gifts for the DJ in Your Life

0Share

Most of us have had our lives saved by a DJ at some point, so perhaps the holidays might be a good time to give a little back to your favorite desk master; after all, DJs and other members of the music community have had a particularly rough year. These five gifts are only a couple of clicks away at B&H and might be just the ticket to help you show some love to a deserving spin master this season.

Auray M-LED3-CL Clip-On Gooseneck Light

If you’ve ever been in the DJ booth, you probably noticed how dark it was while you stumbled around stealing drinks and looking for a place to stash your coat. The compact, lightweight Auray M-LED3-CL clip-on LED light can help. This versatile little number features three LEDs and a spring-loaded clip, so it can be easily attached where needed. An 8.5" gooseneck allows for optimal light positioning, and the light has two intensity settings: low glow or high beam­­. Power is supplied by three AA batteries or USB bus power.

Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 Handheld Mic

Sooner or later every DJ needs a simple handheld microphone. The Behringer XM8500 is a dynamic mic so it doesn’t need any power to operate; plug in an XLR cable and you’re ready to patch into a mixer or PA’s mic input. The mic is popular with DJs because the built-in two-stage pop filter reduces breath and plosive noise, while the internal shockmount reduces handling noise. In addition, the mic is tailored for clear vocals and offers a cardioid pick-up pattern that focuses audio capture in front of the capsule—reducing feedback problems and that annoying ringing in the sound system.

Magma Bags Control Stand II

Is your DJ friend using a laptop and controller? If so, the Magma Bags Control Stand II could be a helpful addition to their setup. This sturdy stand supports both the laptop and the DJ controller simultaneously and features adjustable platform arms to support a wide variety of equipment models. It can be installed right over an existing setup; in fact, it’s perfectly sized to fit over a 12" club mixer. The height is adjustable, allowing the user to get the gear right where it’s needed. A slip-resistant rubber surface and base legs ensure everything stays in place, even when the party gets crazy.

Technics SL-1200MK7 Direct Drive Turntable System

Got some Grade A, special-deep love for your DJ? Well, if your pockets are equally deep this holiday season, you can get the gift that no DJ or audiophile could refuse: The Technics SL-1200MK7 turntable. The latest addition to this long line of legendary turntables is built with the same attention to detail and quality that have kept older versions alive and running, often in perfect working order, even after years of nightclub abuse.

New coreless, direct-drive technology in the MK7 offers some significant improvements to ensure precision motor control and reduce vibrations for an ultra-smooth performance that’s ready for a wide variety of DJ styles. The starting torque and break speed are adjustable, and the turntable will spin in reverse if you press the speed selector and start/stop buttons simultaneously, a fun holiday party trick.

So, if you can’t give your DJ buddy what he or she probably really wants right now (a gig, of course!), perhaps one of these thoughtful gems will help you show your appreciation, at least until you can get back out on the dance floor and shake a tail feather again.
