Online DJ Equipment Shops

There are many online DJ equipment shops where you can order DJ equipment to your home, including Birmingham's own DJ Tech Direct. Be cautious, some of these shops will list the item for sale on their website but they might not actually have it in stock and wait times for DJ equipment can be months. It's always best to check if they have the item in stock on the phone before purchasing.

We only recommend using online DJ shops when you know exactly what you want to buy. If you're new to DJing and not sure it's much better for you to take some DJ lessons with us or visit a showroom.

Second-hand DJ equipment in Birmingham

Some people might wish to save money on DJ equipment by buying second-hand. We generally advise against this. We've known a few horror stories where someone has been conned into buying obsolete DJ equipment that is totally out-of-date and unsuitable for modern ways of DJing. It might seem cheap but trust us, it's a false economy! Best to avoid unless you really know what you're doing and how to check they are working 100%.

Again, the best thing here is to learn how to DJ properly and establish what DJ equipment would best suit your style of DJing and your budget before investing. Feel free to contact us for impartial advice.
