DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Use Gaff Tape Not Duct Tape.

March 7, 2019 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tip in under 60 seconds, one minute. This is duct tape. This is what you use when working on heating and cooling ducts, d-u-c-t. This is Gaff tape. It says right inside: Gaff. This is what you use when you're a professional DJ, because it doesn't leave residues, it won't mark up the floor, it won't markup marble, it won't markup wood and it won't stick or leave anything behind. I've probably done four weddings this year where I've been told before they saw the tape, we only allow Gaff tape, can't use duct tape, it sticks and leaves residue. When I was first starting out, yes, I used duct tape, then I became pro and I talked to the right people and they guided me and said, no, use Gaff tape, it's good for cables, won't leave residue. So DJ tips in under a minute, use real Gaff tape. Thank you. ... [read more]

Wireless uplighting Rainbow lights Uplighting and wireless uplighting has been around for a little while now.

Review: The New American DJ MyDMX GO Lighting Control App

January 16, 2019 by Jordan Nelson
If you'd like to see a hands-on video review of MyDMX GO, click here. It's not often that I get so excited about a new DJ product that I make sure I have one in my hands within a week of its release, but when I first heard about the new MyDMX GO lighting control app from American DJ I knew that it was a game-changer. A DMX dongle that connects wirelessly to a tablet app is already making huge strides towards being the most convenient lighting control option for mobile DJs, but one that also requires ZERO programming to use? Even as someone who has written two books on lighting and DMX for DJs, this was something I needed to see for myself. I wa... [read more]

November 22, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. This, as you can see, is a Source Four Junior. Use it to do Gobos, monograms, whatever you have to show. I borrowed this from a local DJ and this is what I traded for the borrow. This is a brand new replacement light that cost me $22. So I borrow his light, I get the Gobo cut, I take it to the event, I use it, I replace the bulb with a brand new bulb just in case I need it at the event, I do my event. So instead of renting the light from a service, I just called around, found a DJ I knew had one, said, can I borrow your light? I'll give you a brand new lightbulb when I return it. He said, yeah, that sounds like a good deal. So the DJ tip in under a minute today is if you need something specialized, like a Gobo light, special dance light, see about borrowing it, see about ...
