What's At The Front Of Your Disco?

The oh-so-popular LED star cloth?

Some retro light screens?

Sweet bugger all...?

 

I personally am wanting rid of my big bulky light screen, as funky as it is. Have no idea what to replace it with though; played a gig recently without it, and obviously there was just a big pile of cables in clear view under the table - not so attractive.

 

I see a lot of LED star cloths, and am very tempted, but would appreciate feedback on whether they're really worth the 120 squid.

 

And for those who have neither, how do you keep the masses of cable out of sight?

 

Answers on a postcard =) cheers.

Ive got the NJD starcloth not what i want but its better than the lightcabs and the shiny polycotton starcloths as the NJD is serge wool well made and comes with a good controller with lots of variation.

I use a custom star booth similar to the S+H that Steve (Spinner) uses. My brother did all the framework for it.

If you want to go down the booth route I can highly recommend the one that has been designed for DJ@ as seen here. It is custom made by Savill Cases who are happy to build any custom case to your specs.

Just a plain black cloth for me round my 4" giraffe stand. Nothing exciting i'm afraid.

 

I have a black back drop with my Name in Silver when I'm Singing. For Disco & Karaoke I don't have anything. I setup to one side and work in the room. Nothing to hide behind. I'm an Out Front and Open kind of Guy

Kind Regards

Just took delivery of my starcloth bought on Ebay for about £80.

 

Difference is that it's a multi colour one and looks better than the £100+ white ones through the dealers.

 

Must admit it looks really good.

 

A guy in Merthyr Tydfil makes them but I did have to wait 2 weeks to ship and some emails were ignored.

 

I know it's a bit bedroom DJ'ish but also bought (off Ebay) for small pub gigs a couple of new Soundlab LED Disco Mobile Lighting Light Boxes for £110 the pair delivered

 

Teez :tree:

Just a plain black table cloth here - that goes quite well over most tables and hides the crap. Nowt worse than a load of cables on display...

i have a couple of the ebay ones, the girl makes them herself

 

they always go on ebay at no reserve, so sometimes you can get a real bargain

 

i have 2, one is black cloth with pink led's, i use this for most gigs

the other is white cloth with white leds, which looks great in posh venues

 

i paid £38 for the pink one and £42 for the white one

 

im trying to get another pink one cheap for the 3rd show, but no cheap ones at the moment!

Usually people dancing....... :funjokeandlaugh:

 

Joking aside I use either

 

Light Screens / Starcloth or open plan ( DJ at the edge of the dance floor)

Depending on the show type in use.

Open plan only really looks presentable if you are using active speakers or can move the amps out of the way otherwise you would have cables trailing all over the place.

 

Starcloth on the deck stand looks good. (I use a Fibre Optic Cloth).

 

The DJ last weekends function that I attended as a guest used nothing but a table to put his laptop / CD Decks and looked dreadful with cables all over the place.

I did that a few times - it feels "wrong" or "naked" without something to hide your lower half!

Agreed. For the money, a great bit of kit and looks professional

I've got this

 

http://www.thomann.de/ie/skb_skb_gigrig_14...p6_he_front.htm

 

and at the front I've made a holder for a banner which screws onto the front of the rig and has my name, phone number and website.

I'll get a photo the next time I've got it out.

 

Looks very neat and takes up little room. All the leads bundle in under it too.

That's quite a nice bit of kit as far as flight cases go.

Not so handy for tabletop decks though :(

I currently have a black table cloth over my Giraffe 4ft Stand, have seen some really nice Star Cloths + Giraffe stands, does anyone know where I can get the cloth on its own?

Most DJ shops will have star cloths, Flea Bay is an handy place too.

THanks Jim, will have a look on the bay, ideally looking for some that fits the Gifaffe stand perfectly
