    Default Can someone with turntable knowledge help :)

    Ok guys so i have traktor, a numark dj i/o soundcard. So i was wondering if anyone could advise me to some cheap turntables i could start off with.

    I know technics are the bee's knees but i don't have money i'm looking for something rather basic just for the sake of learning.

    where are you located?. In the states you can score 1200's for fairly cheap.

    You can find sets of 1200's for around $500 pretty common. If your patient and can hold on to the money better deals pop up.

    Yea I would try and find a used set of Technics. Even used they'll probably be better than any other brand of TT.

    From my experience...I'd say wait an extra week or two and save some more money to get Tech's. It's well worth the wait. The Vestax are dope too, but if you're gonna get the staple in every booth...you want Techs.
