Is there a reason you don't put some of the movers on the front tube for weight balance?

That is an older 10ft piece of truss I've had for many years and wanted to use it until I get my other truss.

I have a couple of school events coming up and I wanted to pre rig all the wiring to speed up set up time.

This triangle truss is made out of smaller tubing so I had to add the 1.5" tube under the center so I could use what clamps I have now.

Thats a sweet T-bar in the background...is that hand made? looks a little old and rugged.

If you are talking about the T-bar at the top of my stands? Yes I made those to hold the truss and give it an extra 1.5 feet of lift.

LOL... In church circles, we call that a CROSS!!! It’s made to look old, but probably is not, and probably was never used to crucify anybody. That cross is kinda small, so could probably only be used to crucify dwarfs ... or CHILDREN!!!

Well, Ill be honest. I don't like the look since it does not match.

However, I don't think anyone will care except for other DJs lol

You have 4 movers, and 4 wash lights which is solid coverage!

How long did it take you to set up?

Everything is pre-wired, so it only takes about 15 minutes to set up.
Interesting. So do you transport that Truss Bar in your vehicle with all of the lights already clamped onto it with the wires attached? You just put the bar on top, crank up, and plug all the lights in?
