Equipment Options

Equipment Options

We have many different options when it comes to our sound and light kit.  This allows us to put in a rig which is appropriate to the venue.  Our kit is not old and battered, it is carefully flight cased and upgraded regularly.

Standard rig

The sound system would be MacBook Pro, Denon midi-controller and mixing desk and Bose L1 providing sound for the suite for up to around 150 guests.
Lighting stand (T-bar) with LED and laser lighting effects
Two scanning LED spots or globes, the modern and mobile equivilent of the mirror-ball
Backlit booth or LED clothed stand for DJ equipment

Enhanced Rig

The sound system would see additional speakers added to the Standard rig, with MacBook Pro, Denon desk and Bose L1 providing plenty sound for up to 500 guests.  (Further additions can be made to accommodate larger crowds)
If allowed by your venue, a haze machine to enhance the lighting effect on the suite.  Hardly noticeable to everyone but makes a difference. (It’s not a smoke machine as they are rarely allowed by venues.)

Twenty LED and laser lighting effects across the top of the truss
Two scanning LED spots or globe effects similar to mirror balls.
 

Uplighters

Uplighters have become quite a popular add-on for people to use light to change the appearance of a venue by adding a splash of colour to theme a room.  Later in the evening, once the disco starts they can be controlled to work alongside the other disco lights.

Bespoke Rigs

There are so many options, like branding the DJ booth with the names and date for your wedding, to gobos projecting names and date onto the floor/walls or ceiling.  We also have lasers controlled by computer using the ILDA system, which can display static or moving images and text.  This is the modern way to display a theme message, way more modern and versatile than the gobo projectors of yesteryear.

Want to brand the booth for your event?

For very little cost, you can have the screen on the front of the booth branded for your event.

Haze

If you can persuade your venue to let us use haze, it makes a big difference.
