I recently discovered a new machine that has the effect of fireworks, but from the video i saw, the person can touch fireworks safely. I think that would be very popular for many events, . Someone bought this Machine before?Janet-Tacy-Kramer-Events-Safe-Indoor-Cold-Spark-Fountains.jpeg

I have and I know so has @djtaso and RickRyan. They are a great effect if you can get your client's to pay you what you deserve to use them. YEs you can touch them. However be careful, they can burn tiny holes in clothing fabric.

I have em, they’re generally safe, and yes they do require a certain clientele. I charge $400 for 2 and around $600 for 4 after discounts. Know your local market... many rural areas are not familiar with these, and due to their lack of familiarity, might not allow them. There is no heat emited from the spark as they come out at room temperature. However they can leave black residue due behind, as it becomes dust like.

The front wheels on my gave up. I loved the form factor on mine, but it wasn't built well enough.
I have the R10 version. The stickers on the side are starting to come off at this point. Good amount of scratches on it. I have 6 years of use out of it at this point, and it was purchased for $184.95 so ROI has been pretty good. Everyone has said the older ones were built tougher, like the pre '13 ones. I think I can hopefully get another 3 years out of mine.

I also have the small R2 multi cart. Brought it with us on vacation to put our luggage on instead of using one of the resort's luggage carts. Just big enough to fit 3 luggage cases on. It did the job great

The R2, the bolts on top of the front wheels continually loosen up though. I always have to tighten them.

Not my "favorite" but the one piece I cannot imagine DJing without--Bose T4s Digital Mixer. I use one for DJ setup and Ceremony. So good for DSP per channel and really quick on the fly adjustments (more so than any mixer I have used).

My favorite new toy is my new controller (Rane One).

I put my spark units in front of the head table and had to start pushing 1st dance to after dinner, just to make sure I didn't sprinkle dust on their food.

My favorite gear is the gear I'm playing on. Meaning the controller, or the mixer and CDJs or turntables. The most fun of DJing for me is actually DJing.
