History Of DJ Equipment
History Of DJ Equipment Previously Used By Us
Records or CDs?
The early 1980s saw innovations with the Wedding DJs disco console with the better ones incorporating the legendary Technics SL1200 direct drive turntable into their audio setup . The high torque of this unit allowed true mixing of records. Citronic did actually make a 'self queuing' turntable that could dispense of the need for headphones, although most 'Pro' Wedding DJs would always check that cue as technology could not be trusted back then. When audio CDs arrived in the mid 80s, we moved into CD Players, however traditional mobile Wedding DJs played both media for a while.
The 1990s from Wedding DJ to Superstar DJ
Throughout the 90s we saw many DJ's become famous for their work, the likes of Norman Cook ('Fatboy Slim') & Pete Tong to name just two. Who knows, a few probably started as Wedding DJs
Bringing us up to date, we now have many choices of ways to play those favourite Wedding DJ tunes, along with many different choices to play the music. Smaller and neater equipment, along with wonderful innovations in lighting. The current mobile DJ system can occupy the rear seats of my car with ease and easily fill up a mid size venue with plenty of sound.
Long live the Mobile DJ
