On a historical timeline, karaoke is a recent craze - very recent, in fact. But it says a lot about karaoke that it's exploded in popularity the way it has, becoming a worldwide favorite not only at house parties but also in nightclubs, bars and restaurants all over the world. Whether you're a professional gearing up your venue to bring in record crowds at weekly karaoke night, or a party enthusiast looking to make your next get-together a total hit, the karaoke machines and equipment you'll need are right here in this section. So go ahead and browse all the options you have to choose from, and get ready to let the good times roll.
The most basic ingredient in a great sing-along experience is the karaoke machine, and there are lots of different varieties to choose from. A quick and easy model for your home would be The Singing Machine SML343 Karaoke System, which connects to any TV and comes packed with built-in lighting effects. Want something compact that works with your smartphone or tablet? Check out the VocoPro All-U Karaoke FM Mic for Android & iOS. Or, if you're after a professional-grade machine for permanent venue installation, consider something like the RSQ K-2N Dual Tray Karaoke Player or the Behringer MIX800 MiniMIX Karaoke Machine with Voice Canceller and FX.
A karaoke machine on its own is a great start, but there's a lot to be said for accessories as well. If you want the best party right out of the box, it's worth considering a bundle or all-in-one setup that will give you some great gear to go along with the machine itself. For instance, there's the VocoPro GIG STAR Karaoke Machine Package - it includes a wireless mic and a coupon for a free bag to carry the whole system wherever the party's going down. Interested in a setup that will cover for you even if your voice isn't quite on point? In that case, consider the Singtrix Party Bundle Home Karaoke System, designed to help any singer sound good.
Of course, sounding good is optional when it comes to karaoke, and that's part of the fun! You don't have to have a Broadway voice to get up and sing with one of these machines - the point is to have a blast belting out your favorite tunes and not having a care in the world about what anyone thinks. Go up solo, bring a friend for a duet... you can even sing Journey, although your friends might not give you any points for originality. Karaoke makes music interactive for everyone, which is exactly why it's caught on like wildfire.
