Hercules DJ Console Mk4

Hercules DJ Console Mk4

Despite its name, you don't need to be built like an ancient mythological demigod to drag around the Hercules DJ Console Mk4 (£180; roughly $275). Billed as the most portable and compact 2-deck DJ controller with built-in audio for PC and Mac, the Mk4 weighs just 3.3 lbs, and offers dual stereo outputs and inputs, a USB port for making nice with software programs, headphone output, microphone input, two jog wheels, a cross fader, dual volume faders, six EQ knobs, functions for automatic looks and recording mixes, and included VirtualDJ DJC Edition mixing software. Just enjoy that "most portable" title while it lasts, because last we heard an iPad running Mixr isn't exactly heavy, even if you've tossed it in a case.

  • Gibson 50th Anniversary 1960 ES-335TD Guitar

    Sporting a semi-hollow body, period-correct hardware like volume and tone knobs, double band tuners and dual PAF-style 57 Classic humbucking pickups, the Gibson 50th Anniversary 1960 ES-335TD Guitar ($5,700-$6,200) is as close as you're going to get to an original without shelling out way, way more cash. Created to celebrate the ES-335TD's golden anniversary, each guitar is handcrafted by Gibson Custom's Memphis division, and comes in either a Vintage Sunburst, Faded Cherry, or Antique Natural finish, each of which is applied using Gibson's Vintage Original Specs process to make sure it looks the part.

  • Tunebug

    Using SurfaceSound technology, the new Tunebug Vibe ($65) lets you take a speaker with you basically anywhere you go. The Tunebug sports a stylish, triangular brushed metal body, an illuminated power button, and a standard 3.5mm input for compatibility with a wide range of audio sources, but the real magic is in the NXT-powered SurfaceSound Speaker, which turns nearly any surface — although hollow ones work best — into a makeshift speaker.
