Music Equipment / Records Stores - LA & NYC

Hi All,

Travelling over to LA / NYC next month and was just wondering if anyone can recomend stores in LA / NYC that sell dj gear. Looking to pick up some Grado needles and a UDG bag to bring records home. Maybe an audio interface as well. About all I've found at the moment is turntable lab, hollywooddj.com calsound.com, qualityelectronics.net and Guitar Center.

Also looking to have a dig so record stores as well. Mainly looking for 2nd hand stuff late 80's / 90's techno/house.

At the moment mainly only got joints in NYC to hit up. A1 records, dope jams, halcyon, the sound library, second hand rose and academy.

How about LA, any good 2nd hand stuff down there?

Any suggestions of places to check out or even steer clear of would be greatly appreaciated!

Sorry this is in the wrong section, however as this is one of the only active sections, I thought it would be most appropriate.

Thanks!

Amoeba is great place to buy records. Turntable Lab also sells records and dj gear. I actually bought my headliner bag from them. There was "Fat Beats," but that place closed down not to long ago.

The first Guitar Center is in L.A. and it's not too far from Turntable Lab.

try groove riders in Sherman Oaks for some records and dj bags.
You also might find some used gear at Astros sound & light in Glendale.
As mentioned above, Amoeba is a good source for records.
Try Street sounds in Melrose, they may have some records but I don't know.

Been to the Amoeba in SF and was very impressed - sure the one in LA is in the same ballpark.

NYC - except for a few smaller stores, almost everything is closed - 8 ball, Vinylmania, Satellite - all gone for a couple of years. TT lab is ok - they have equipment, as does GC.

if yr in nyc, halcyon is the place for new/recent vinyl. great spot! a1 near tompkins sq park is also fantastic but for older stuff. plenty of very high quality house, boogie, and disco cuts. turntable lab has an ok selection but i'd for sure prioritize the other two. a1 is the only record store i've seen in the states with a 1620 behind the 'booth' too. halcyon has an actually very good sound system in it, they have djs spin weds and thurs afternoon, seen some great sets there actually. those two places are the real deal.

Fat Beats is in the Mayer Hawthorne "Maybe So Maybe No" video. That party scene in the end is the "Do-Over." It's the hottest party in the nation.
