    School & Teen Events My first School / Teen event

    While I don't disagree with you, they can't find anyone to play music for them. The DJ's in the area all want $500+ to do any event. I enjoy being around students (I was almost a teacher, I've coached, helped with scouting, our church youth, and other school activities). I have the equipment...

    School & Teen Events My first School / Teen event

    So I did look around the forum a little but didn't find anything real recent. Hoping maybe someone might be willing to point me in the right direction. As school is winding down, I may have a chance to play at a local middle school's "play day". Basically it will be 7th & 8th graders outdoors...

    Looking for help with the speakers on either speaker stands.

    Mix, you seem like you'd be willing to do some DIY hacks if it would be cheaper... so I'll offer a thought or two. Look at the bottom of the speakers. If the holes in the bottom look to be in good shape (nothing broken in the cup), then it's likely a simple case of the speaker pole you have...

    Priced out of work...?

    Hey all... thanks for all of your input. I didn't forget about this thread, just been busy with work. I've gotten some great advice, suggestions, and ideas. I'm slowly working through them all. This forum is great!

    I just ordered another rolling laptop bag from Ebay

    I'm happy for you that you got something you like and I guess got a two for one deal in the process. I say be careful with those rolling bags though, they make me nervous. I don't know if I'm afraid someone will kick my laptop or what, but it always makes me cringe seeing people wheeling those...

    Priced out of work...?

    So, as some of you may recall, I'm still new to the DJ business. I've been working with a couple of established dj's in my area for about 5 months. I've assisted them with several weddings, private events, and booked several of my own private events and play somewhat regularly at a local small...

    Your opinion on DJ sitting in a chair while deejaying?

    @DJ Ricky B - shoot me a message if you're looking at buggies. I'm selling my whole setup. Only about 4 races on it. ;-)

    Controller choice?

    I'm still new to dj'ing, and I went with an SB2, which I know is over your budget, but I'm super happy with it. I know, that's of no help to you. However, if you decide you want to go the ddj400 route, I have one that I only used maybe 5 times in my living room. I have a case for it as...

    Decksaver

    You're not wrong.... lol.... I just felt like the price was kind of high for what it was. It does the job it was designed for and fits well as I can leave it on the controller inside the flight case.

    Decksaver

    I have one for my sb2. It's alright... but for most of the work I've done up to this point, It hasn't proved its worth to me yet. If I leave my controller out for a long time at home, it does keep dust off of it. Aside from that, eh......

    Christmas gift to yourself?

    I didn't buy myself anything.... which I normally do. Maybe I'll build an ar-10 this winter.... ;-)

    Pricing one standard price vs package pricing

    The only add-on's I can think of currently would be a cloud machine, fog machine, uplights, or ceremony sound/mics. I know subs aren't required at every location, but for a wedding, I WANT to provide full range sound because that's what I like, so I'll have them at any wedding I do. Also...

    Pricing one standard price vs package pricing

    This is sort of the route I'm thinking about going.

    Pricing one standard price vs package pricing

    I did try to search the forums, but didn't find much on this... sorry if it's over-discussed. As a new mobile DJ, I'm working on my pricing. This post will relate mainly to wedding package pricing. Pricing for private parties/bar/PA setups, etc would be different altogether. I see a lot of...

    Cheap moving heads

    My grandmother had one of those sat on the back of her stove for as far back as any of the grandkids can remember. I swear that things head moved even when nobody was around. It was borderline creepy, lol. I had completely forgot about it until you posted that.... amazing.... lol.
