This thing is pretty good. It helped me eliminate 4 light stands!!! And I have enough room for other stuff as well. I run 4 par 38's and 4 par 56's - 2 "bob" flame lights - A duel moonflower reflex laser and a 12" disco ball with a red and blue spot light on either side. Holds up well with all the extra wieght I have put on it. I also hang the bands banner off of the back of it behind the drummer. Works pretty good for us and we have beat this thing to death for about a month now. Not a bad price for what you get.

Scratches all over the unit. Box came in from UPS but can't tell who jacked it up, UPS or GuitarCenter. Complete disappointment. Planning on calling to see how to handle. Looks like it's been used. Fair quality, don't over tighten, I can tell already it won't last long. But as a temporary setup, but I would pay a little more money to get a little better quality if you plan on using a lot.

    Stands work good, but no parts

    By Dan Herrmann

    from Denver, co.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

    I am happy with the lighting stand itself. It has worked for multiple applications but I can't get parts for it. Guitar Center says they make this item in house but yet they can't provide any parts for it. It's probably a breakoff of American DJ's truss system that looks exactly the same, but not knowing for sure I didn't want to get the parts through them either. I've always had good luck ordering with Guitar Center, but this is definitely downfall for them that would be an easy fix assuming they actually make the item in house(which I doubt).

    Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

    I was worried that this might be TOO light weight after reading all the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised! With two trusses on each side of our group, something was needed behind the drummer. This is perfect!!! We are putting some "pin spots" and small effects, that need to be behind the drummer but up in the air on this . With our drummer being on a riser, this is perfect for variable heights. I also read about "more assembly instructions"....if you can't figure out the assembly WITHOUT instructions AT ALL...you probably don't need to be messing with the lights anyway!
    ONLY thing...you need C clamps for additional fixtures. M/F has them for more than reasonable price, so no big deal. I bought 12 just to have enough!
    Great deal....glad I bought it...you will be too!

      What a great piece of equipment! If you want a good light truss, don't hesitate to buy this item, we also hung our back-drop from hooks at the top, this truss is a must for any pros out there that want a professional, durable stand! We used it at an outdoor festival and even with people up on stage & a windy day, this stand stayed put. Thank You Musician's Friend!

      Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

      When I ordered this stand I went into it thinking it was going to be flimsy and would just barely support my (very light) lighting setup.

      I was wrong there, as it easily supports much more than what I'm working with, and it's very functional. Bows in the middle slightly, but it's only noticeable if you're looking for it.

      Two things you have to know before you buy:

      1) The 10ft truss does not have holes drilled in it for C clamps, so you will need to purchase additional O clamps for this rig. The trees on both sides do have holes, so you're good there.

      2) You will likely need help raising this thing in the air, and bring a ladder, because you will need to hang your lights after it has been raised, not before. I suggest a crank-based truss if you would like to hang and wire before you raise.

      Overall, a killer deal for the price. I'm happy.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

      I'm a mobile dj, and i like the stand. easy set up and take down, light weight. Only draw back the nuts on the screws sometimes get lost so i would HIGHLY recommend by extras with vinyl inside that way they wont fall out. overall satisfied for the price.

      Not happy, spend the extra money

      By Eric Greatwood

      from Abilene, Texas

      Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

      I'd explain but I have the same issues as the others. It's just a weak stand. The plastic on it is not great. The metal sags. It just doesn't seem to want to fit right.

      Sturdy but tubing too small

      By Shannon Dolese

      from New Orleans, LA

      Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

      I own several truss' that I have purchased years back and needed another one for a different set up. on each of the other truss beams, I used 1.5 OD o-clamps as not to scratch up the powder coding or dent the tubing. So I anticipated the same size tuding would be for this one. To my displeasure, The tubing is 1-3/8" dia, just small enough as not to be able to utilize the o-clamps aready attached to all of my lights. Also, the section set for the 4 Pars on each side of the truss stands is too narrow whereas I cannot mount 4 LED par 64s all on the top. I have to mount two on the top and two below. This also forces me to lower the truss in relation to the top bar for the pars because the ones below the beam are now in the way. Not bad for the price, but when you get use to one way, it's hard to adjust to something else.

      O-Clamp issues

      By SHANNON DOLESE

      from New Orleans, LA

      Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

      I own a seperate truss system and use both for DJing at seperate locations. When I purchased this one, I ASSUMED that it wouldn't be that much different. Although they are different manufactures. I use 1.5 O-Clamps as not to stratch the finish or dent the piping with my older one and it works great for quick set-up as well. The size of the piping is not advertised, hence ASSUMED. I was looking for 1.5 Dia piping for the main truss work, however it isn't. It is 1.375, and my O-Clamps do not fit. Other than this, it appears to work just like my older one.
