    Used Gear - Buy, Sell Or Trade For 2018

    Got three complete EV Powered Speaker Systems but I only need one. I'm looking to sell two complete ZXA-1 systems that are in mint condition. Each contains two powered 8" tops (800W each) with two 12" powered subs (700W each), complete with covers, poles and all power cables. These are too...

    Only Retired DJs Are "Real" DJs

    You go Cap ...... I do pretty much the same thing down here in Florida! I'm in a beautiful 55+ community, screened in, in-ground pool and if I cross the street from the back of my house, I'm at the golf course club house, restaurant/bar, practice green and the largest of our 4 ballroom/pool...

    Need software to make Contracts for DJ business any Suggestions?

    Thanks Cap, I figured it out and saved a blank contract with the fields predefined therein. You need to use the column headers as the variables, then in the blank contract you define the variables as <<header_name>>. You can select a single or multiple records from the spreadsheet. Thanks and...

    Need software to make Contracts for DJ business any Suggestions?

    Cap - I know MS Word and MS Access work well together but can MS Word contracts extract client data from MS Excel? Kinda like a mail-merge doc?

    New mics

    Don't rule out a "shotgun" mic connected to a wireless transmitter pack. It can be used from a very short floor stand or from an overhead boom. Cover it with a "dead cat" wind shield when using it outdoors .... they're fantastic and not overly expensive. I use a Rode NTG-2 which costs around...

    It's Time To Hang Up The Headphones!

    Larry62 - Yes I still own my UltraTec Dry-Icer. I've found through experience that the pellets give the best results when compared to the blocks. I always purchased the pellets in 10 lb bags and it normally took 20 lbs to do a decent presentation over the course of a 4 hr gig. As stated before...

    It's Time To Hang Up The Headphones!

    I'll always be lurking around. I will still be DJ'ing but not near as much as I used too. Next gigs are scheduled for 2/15, 3/3 and 3/10. I do have a bunch of very good gear going up for sale but I'm trying to prioritize it right now. It's tough reading these 'senior' crowds sometimes as to what...

    It's Time To Hang Up The Headphones!

    I have finally come to the decision that it's time to "Hang Up my Headphones." The number of gigs that I've performed over the past two years has been reduced to 25. Since moving from my home state of MD to a "55+ retirement" community here in FL, the demand for high powered sound, fancy...

    I Have To Give Him A Shout...

    Yep ..... Cap is da'man for BOSE. I love the BOSE Compacts as well BUT, I'm quite satisfied with my current small system and just can't justify changing now. Its just too late in my DJ career.

    Like It Or Not, This Impacts Us

    Although the job market is getting better, there is still a lot to be done. That being said, the millennial generation is still educated but unemployed, lots still live with their parents, get married later (in their 30's compared to their 20's for Generation-X), want everything yesterday and at...
