DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Invest In Lights That Are Smaller And Less Money.

October 18, 2018 by DJ Jay
DJ tips in under a minute. These are LED Par 36. They're in an old CD case. I think you could probably buy these lights today for about $39 apiece. That's what I've seen at the shows, $39, $49. I have eight of them and now they're in this case and boom, I'm out the door. The benefit is I don't have $300 to buy one Par can and a lot of my clients want some uplighting. So I have plenty of videos that show these lights. They're as bright as those lights right there. If you can see that, that is a color wash. The reason I bring this up is people are always asking me about the economy, what can I do? You know what, buy some smaller, less expensive lights, bring down the price of your uplighting package. If it comes down to I want to sell something, this is a great way to go, Par 36 cans, get a case, you're out the... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Buy A Gobo Projector And Any Letters Of The Alphabet You Need.

October 4, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. I had a thought, it's not an original, new thought, but it's something I've discussed with other DJs over the years, these are Source Four Juniors and as you can see or maybe not see, they run $250, $300, $350, you can find them out there on the Internet maybe even used for $200, but if you want to make an investment in something that might have a good return, buy one of these, then go to a place that sells Gobos and don't get customs, get stock. Just get every letter of the alphabet or look at the names of the brides and grooms you have coming up and get the groom's last name's letter. Add this on as either a freebie or as a sell and say, I also provide your last name as a Gobo on the dance floor. If they want a customer, then figure out a price for it, but just somethin...

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Favorite Piece Of Gear, Rock N Roller Cart.

August 16, 2018 by DJ Jay
DJ tips in under a minute. People often ask me the best piece of gear I own, expecting me to say a CDJ or a DJM or something, but believe it or not, it's right there, that is my rock and rock cart. It is an older one, I think this is about four or five years old and as you can see, it's all folded up nice, it's a small footprint, but the handles come up and the whole things extends out to twice that length. I can carry my two JBL speakers, my coffin, two speaker stands and a bag and do an event in one trip. This has been a lifesaver, because it fits right in the front seat of the car, folds out, does its job. And I think at expo, I'm going to get a new one, because this is the older style with the actual tires that take air, the new ones are hard plastic. So save your back, save your agro, don't rely on hote... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Cake Table Pin Spot Idea.

August 9, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute, Par can, one of the O-clamps and speaker stand. Just about every single wedding I do some of this gear gets left in the garage, but after speaking with DJ Mikey Mike doing it from scratch and direct sounds, he gave me an idea that I have heard about before, but haven't tried that I'm going to probably this weekend, that light and that speaker stand are now going to become a cake table pin spot. That's right, I'm going to go set it up, see how it looks and try it out and then I'm going to offer it as a little bit of either an upgrade to my clients or maybe even a little freebie, just a little throw in for them being cool and me needing a little bargaining tool. But I'm thinking this is probably a $50 to $100 idea. So you've got a spot, you've got a stand, you've got a cake... [read more]
