Warning: Total NOOb here!
The band decided to get rid of our sound and lighting guy for various reasons. I've been recruited to learn (and buy) lights, because even a basic setup will be better than what the dude is doing right now.
I'm starting from scratch. I've got a line on a used setup: 2 T-bars and 8 ADJ Par 56 lamps, but only with a switching/relay pack, not a dimmer. And no control board. I'm not sure if I'm going to jump on this or not.
We've got our first disagreement going... where should the first set of lights be located? One person thinks they should be on a truss along the back, the others think at an angle in the front facing in. Logically the latter makes more sense to me, because of shadows, but the American DJ basic setup (Link Removed) shows a truss system... Can someone help me get started?
Thanks a million.
