With so many DJ Lighting Stands to choose from, here are some simple tips on choosing the right one for you. There are a few different types of stand; there are your straight forward 'T' Bar type which comprises of a foldable tripod stand with a bar that sits on the top with pre drilled holes, bolts and wing nuts provided. Most 'T' bar types are designed to hold four lights and the weight loading varies depending on price. DJ Truss stands or 'Bridges' as they are also known comprise of two tripod stands with a two section triangular truss (comes in two 5ft lengths and join in the middle) to for a 10ft span. This idea is to not only give more strength, but to allow much more lighting fixtures to be mounted on the top and bottom. Some Truss complete lighting systems also have a 'T' bar at each end that mounts on top of the tripods to give you even more scope! Other Disco Lighting Stands would include the complete disco stand which has a frame to hold your DJ Equipment as well as a complete overhead bar that holds your disco lights. Not to forget, there are also 'wind up' versions with rotating handles to manually increase or decrease the height of the stand.
