Looking to hire a DJ rig for you next party? Perhaps your having a wedding or birthday and have booked your friend to play but not sure what equipment to hire for the event? Even if your just looking to plug an iPod in to a DJ sound system to supply the music for your party, read on for all the information you will need to know.
The first thing you need to look at when hiring DJ equipment for your event is how many people will be attending, how big is the room your holding the event in and how loud do you want the DJ sound system. Obviously the larger the room and the more people your playing to the bigger the sound system your hiring needs to be, but if you make it clear the the dj equipment hire company your hiring from that you don’t want it really loud and perhaps just want the system for back ground music you could save allot of money letting the sound system hire company know that.
Secondly you need to think about the DJ Equipment your DJ needs. Are they using CDs or vinyl? If they are using CDs Id suggest Hiring two pioneer CDJ1000s. If they are using vinyl I would suggest hiring two Technics 1210s. In either case you will also have to hire a DJ mixer, If i was to suggest one i would go for the Pioneer DJM1000 or the Pioneer DJM800. All the brands listed are top quality industry standard DJ Equipment available to hire from any good quality sound company.
If you just want to plug an iPod in to the DJ sound system then you will still need some form of mixer but will need to inform the sound hire company that you are going to plug an IPod in. This will usually mean they are going to give you a mini jack to phono cable or mini jack to jack cable. If you follow this advice and work closely with the DJ Equipment Hire company you should have a hitch free event and have a very happy DJ.
