So you've done your research into the ideal
gear for you - the next step is to buy it. There are many
places to get the hardware from - online, mail order and
high street dealers being the main places. If you know exactly
what you want then online and mail order would suit your
needs but if you still feel the need to test drive the required
hardware, a visit to the showroom is in order. FInd one in
your area in the listing below.
Split into 2 sites (DJ and Record),
SkratchUK aims to bring you the latest and best prices
for all your turntablist equpment needs. A wide range
of hardware is always available as well as a comprehensive
selection of hip hop, DnB, Funk and battle vinyl. Videos,
DVD's and clothing are available as well.
You can buy online or over the phone and all orders
over £100 have free insurance. Keep checking
the site for new arrivals and one-off special offers.

From the Joyryde site:
"This site is owned and operated by Joyryde Records, a DJ Shop located in Burlington, Vermont, USA. We have the lowest prices in the United States, and also pay out of our own pockets for most items to be shipped to you at NO CHARGE TO YOU!
We are the lowest priced DJ Equipment store in the USA. Please help us keep our prices low by referring your friends to our website. We are here to support you as a DJ, and we believe that the fair prices & honest service we provide are worth spreading the word about.
Shop around. Bearing in mind the kind of
money you're likely to be spending, deals can be cut. The
price shown in the advert or on the website isn't usually
the price you pay. Provided you can prove the price you've
been quoted to another dealer, you'd be surprised at just
how much may be cut from the original quoted price. You don't
know the particular circumstances for a particular dealer
- they may have overstocked on a particular product and need
to shift some boxes quickly. In my case, a pair of Numark
TTX1's, a Rane TTM56 and Shure 44-7's listed at £1450.
Eventually, after a couple of hours of email ping pong between
2 dealers, the price dropped to £1190 with a free face
plate thrown in for the Rane.
Next - seek advice from others who have used
particular dealers. Everyone has their own experiences -
good and bad. Ask people you know and log into some of the
forums listed here.
