So, the one I ordered came from Milin Displays. Lisa Milin is on facebook and I literally ordered it direct from her through messenger.

The cost of the items are very low, but shipping was expensive from China. So if you can bundle your order with anyone else local, it's ideal. And I ordered 2 scrims but would have done more.

And @DJ Ricky B is right - It's basically a thin PVC frame that clicks together. It travels very light and small which I like. Versus my Dragonboard which sets up pretty easy, but is huge and heavy. If space is a concern at all this one is great.

Pattern wise, the list is huge so any look you want you can basically build. And it doesn't have to be the shape I bought, they have other shape options.

The issue I found with what I bought is the width. A 6 foot table will not tuck in behind that size, it's right at 6 ft wide. So I bring a 4 ft. folding table with me when I'm using that facade. So that adds a bit of work to make sure I get the look I want.
Would a 5 foot table fit behind it (Wal Mart sells a Folding Camping table that is 5 feet long and sturdier than the 4 foot ones out there) Or does it curve in too much for a 5 foot?

I have a 4 foot table, but I really don't like using it for receptions. It is great for ceremonies for me.

I have considered going this route for the ease of use/setup and classy look. I like that you can still see through it. I just don't want to be blocked.


Rockville copied that from a Chinese Seller that use to sell basically the same thing for $119, and could be had for $110.96 on Ebay. That was the price before Covid. The only difference is Rockville made it a bit wider. Their panels are 24" each where the one on Ebay was 22" each I believe. So 4" wider, and the divider part on top is a little nicer looking on the Rockville one. They probably are using the same place to build them.

Here it is on Ebay, but this is the American Re Seller I think called CedarLink. Price is actually higher at $299. I know for a while they could be had from China for $119.99 probably back in 2017. The Rockville one looks nicer though.

I'd have to set it up and measure to really be able to tell. But I think the edges would be covered but you won't be able to push the table all the way in. It'll probably stick out by a foot at that size.

Thanks for sharing Rocky but wherez da speakrz at? You must have 4 arms, How on earth does that work your mixer being knee level. Are you sitting?
I was gonna ask the same thing!
Yeah what they said!
It's a perspective thing...the controller is actually at waist level and I NEVER sit while performing.

At that venue, in that room, the speakers are directly left & right, spread appx 20 ft on corners of the dance floor.

@ Ross, would a 5-ft folding table fit within the facade? If so, how much space from center front of table to cloth? How much space between the front edge of table and facade once table is positioned? At center of arc and front of table? 4", 6"?
How sturdy is the facade? Must you attach it to the table edge or table leg for support to keep it from falling forward?
BTW, I really like the elegance of that setup!!!

Sorry Ross. I didn't see the prior post about 5-ft table. Same question when using a 4-ft by 24" depth table?

So this is the best photo I have of the back of it and the space. I believe the table I'm using is 4ft X 2ft. The sliding shelf on my rig occupies most of the space in the arc but you can see there is a gap back there on the floor. I will occasionally store uplight cases and stuff back there when there is nowhere else to put them.

FOUND A PIC, old but provides a different perspective (Back table is property of venue that I usually move to stage left back wall)...

@Ross...have you had guests ever come up to you and try to lean on the facade? If so, did it bend or flex back into shape?

Sorry, I missed your question about stability.

It is not a particularly robust piece. It's pretty obvious when you touch it that it will not support a lot of weight. People have put their hand on it but nobody has applied real weight to it or damaged any of the piping.

That is one of the most compact and clean setups I've ever seen!
Thanks.

The amp rack is hidden either under the table or immediately behind one of the subs.

When I'm able to utilize a house/venue system, my footprint is only as big the stand and my fat ass!
