People have five senses, so why should a show appeal to only one at a time? The answer, of course, is that it shouldn't! While a great sound system is the foundation of any venue, giving an audience the full sensory experience depends on pairing it up with an equally great set of lighting and stage effects. From the hottest DJ performance to the most energetic dance and even to theater, presentations and other non-musical events, the role played by lighting and effects is one that can't be understated. Fortunately, it's not hard to gear up - in this section, you'll find everything you need, including lights of all kinds, practical effects, trusses, stands and more.
With hundreds of various effects and hardware items here to choose from, you might want to begin by narrowing the lineup down to one category at a time. For lighting, try starting with the basics by checking out PAR cans like the American DJ Mega Flat Pak Plus or the Chauvet SlimPAR 56 LED PAR Can. Then jazz things up with some of the top-selling lasers and strobes, such as the American DJ Galaxian Sky DMX Laser Effect and the Gem Sound LED Battery OPP DJ Mini Strobe Lighting Effect. Last but not least, put the finishing touch on the show with the incredible effects found under the intelligent lighting header.
If you really want to take your show to the next level, follow up on your lighting with practical effects. They're great ways to make the lights even better (for example, a fog machine turns laser lighting into an intense 3D experience). On top of that, they literally make the audience feel like part of the show. Some great options to consider are the Chauvet Hurricane Haze 3D Haze Machine, American DJ VF1300 1300W Fog Machine and the Chauvet B-250 Bubble Machine. Want to combine lights and fog in one unit? Take a look at the Chauvet Geyser RGB Fogger Effect. And don't forget that you can come back to this section anytime you need a refill of fog juice or bubble solution.
No one can blame you if you're getting excited to create a world-class light show - after all, the tools you need to do it are right in front of you. From the simplest PAR Can background lighting to the most complex 3D effects using strategically-positioned laser lights and fog machines, the only limit is your imagination. Make a detailed plan and pick out the lighting and stage effects that will make it happen... then support them with lighting stands and trusses they need, and you'll be ready to leave your next audience awed and amazed!
