AMS - Top Selling DJ Equipment

Our good friends and DJ Equipment partners American Musical Supply just sent us an interesting list of their most popular selling DJ & Production equipment for the past few weeks. We thought that it may be cool to let DJ's and producers know what all the other music makers in the world are buying in order to practice and perform the way they like to. Digital Media Controllers are all the rage right now in the DJ world, but some still prefer a timecode setup, but almost everyone is using the computer to DJ in some shape or fashion. Native Instruments beat-making products are taking off too! Check inside to see the top-selling DJ equipment list and reviews.
