About DJ Accessories:
Once you've got your basic DJ rig, you're going to find that there are still lots of accessories and extras that you'll need. Cases, stands, lights, cables, tables, backdrops, dollies or hand trucks to move it all around—all the things that help make your show better and your setup and tear down easier and more efficient.
If you're still spinning vinyl, you might consider ditching those old milk crates you've been using and moving up to specialized storage units that offer better protection and organization. Or you may need replacement needles or an upgraded cartridge.
Cases to protect your investment in gear are key, too. Sturdy ATA-style flight cases can range from the traditional DJ "coffin" to a molded case customized for your controller. Either way, they'll help make sure you gear arrives at the show in the same condition it was when you left the house.
Lighting is one of the most important accessories for any DJ. The right lighting will set the mood and get the audience on your side and into the groove. Today's modern LED fixtures are lighter-weight, more compact, and less power-hungry, so putting together a lighting system to make your show stand out is easier than ever.
Borrowing a table from the club can backfire badly—it's the wrong height or not quite long enough and everyplace you go you have to spend time figuring out how to arrange things this time around. Getting a folding console to set up your gear with stands for your laptop and interface ensure that you've always got things right where you need them.
Accessories are all about fine-tuning your setup and making sure that the physical part of your show goes off without a hitch. From gaffer's tape to extension cords and spare speaker cables, you can't be too prepared.
