This round of updates, we cleared out several options – the Tomshine Strobe, BlinBlin Projector, Eyourlife Spider and Missyee RGB – due to availability issues. Into our newly created vacancies, we added the Spooboola Party Light and the Sumger DMX512 – two well-rounded offerings that would be an asset to many events and parties, as well as the Suny Mini PLB-X100RGB – a compact, portable option that caught our eye.
A few things to look for as you cruise through this category:
DMX Control: If you’re looking to integrate this fixture with a new or existing lightshow, you need to have DMX control! DMX controllers plug into the three-pin socket on these lights, allowing you to designate master and slave fixtures so you can coordinate some really spectacular visual effects.
Remote Control: Even if you’re not going to go with DMX control, a simple remote can be a major asset to you. When an adjustment needs to be made, it can save you from bumbling onto the stage in the middle a band or deejay’s performance. Or, better yet, save you from getting a ladder out to adjust the integral controls on a ceiling-mounted laser.
Installation: Even if this device is only getting setup for one night, how are you going to do it? Options like the Chauvet Swarm 5 FX and the Sumger DMX512 have brackets to facilitate ceiling mounting, while offerings like the Spooboola Party Light and the Suny Mini PLB-X100RGB come with tripods to help stand them up. The Chauvet DJ GigBar 2 is a bit of a pricier option, but it comes with a full-size T stand to hang your lights from.
Other than that, have some fun with this purchase and pick the laser with the programmed patterns that you find most impressive. Once you’ve got this all settled, all you need to do is pick up a deejay booth and maybe a fog machine and it’s time to party!
