    Default New to Turntablism

    I'm getting my first pieces of great on Monday. Been wanting these for 13-15 years now. At the moment I'm only interested in vinyl. I'm starting small due to budget. But I'm probably do a lot of lurking in this section.

    Is it Monday yet?!

    If your budget is limited, going vinyl only is the worst mistake you can make.

    Yeah, but I'll just add to the setup as I go. I got enough money to get the bare basics, while I start practicing.

    Aside from that. Turnstyle Records for dubplates bruv. 22 minutes per side on 33. They're retail is $50 per cut but will work with you. I have a few dubplates from them 150+ plays in with minimal sound degredation.
