Gemini TT 03 Direct Drive Turntable

One of the main problems most beginning DJs encounter when looking for a turntable is the generally one that is the most inherent: they are beginners. Being a beginner at anything means you will have less knowledge about that subject than someone experienced in the field. If you are doing to be a disc jockey, you will need a record player.

For obvious reasons, it is one of the most essential pieces of equipment you will be using, and for your first table you want to choose a good one.

The Gemini TT 03 is a great starter table because it is well-priced and provides many handy features. When DJing, the general rule regarding turntables is that more torque is better, and the TT 03 offers a good amount of it, at 2.2kg (4.8lbs).

It also has a straight tone arm, which makes for good tracking. The counterweight is adjustable (no gluing on dimes) and you can actually adjust the arm itself. You can select from three different rotational speeds: 33 1/3, 45, and 78 RPM – the switch is LED illuminated and soft touch.

Gemini also provides you with pitch control up or down to ten percent, although in all reality eight percent is usually enough. You also get an aluminum platter, and a push button quartz lock, which is also illuminated. Light is key because presumably you are going to be tearing blowing the ceiling off a party in a month and it can get dark in there.

It’s also nice to pay attention to detail when putting down your needle, for obvious reasons. The head shell is removable, a felt slip mat is included, and the cables are detachable so you don’t have to worry about ripping them off.

The Gemini TT 03 is heavier, at 17.7 pounds (8 kg), than both the 02 and 01, providing for more stability and thus less skipping and needle damage when spinning. Its weight also adds to the feel you get when spinning, it can be unnerving to think that your table is going to slip out from under your fingers mid-scratch or spin.
