    Durable enough, but don't be deceived.

    When I ordered this stand I went into it thinking it was going to be flimsy and would just barely support my (very light) lighting setup.

    I was wrong there, as it easily supports much more than what I'm working with, and it's very functional. Bows in the middle slightly, but it's only noticeable if you're looking for it.

    Two things you have to know before you buy:

    1) The 10ft truss does not have holes drilled in it for C clamps, so you will need to purchase additional O clamps for this rig. The trees on both sides do have holes, so you're good there.

    2) You will likely need help raising this thing in the air, and bring a ladder, because you will need to hang your lights after it has been raised, not before. I suggest a crank-based truss if you would like to hang and wire before you raise.

    Overall, a killer deal for the price. I'm happy.

    Being a new DJ on a very tight budget I decided that this lighting stand and truss system would be perfect. I was so wrong. For a breakdown of my ratings:Features: I guess it would do the job if the proper t-clamps were included. Right now the features are of no advantage.Quality: The stands seem to be built good, and the truss is sturdy.Value: If I have to spend the same amount of money that this stand cost to make it usable, where is the value in that?Overall:The t-clamps supplied to hold the truss to the main stands were 1 1/4 inch diameter clamps, but the main shaft on the main stands are 1 1/2 inch in diameter. Therefore, I'm not able to put this together with the supplied hardware. Instead, I will need to purchase 1 1/2 t-clamps to make this system work. What makes this bad is there are a total of 6 t-clamps that are needed to make this unit a whole. Four of them for the truss, and two of them for the light bars on top of the main stands.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

      I was worried that this might be TOO light weight after reading all the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised! With two trusses on each side of our group, something was needed behind the drummer. This is perfect!!! We are putting some "pin spots" and small effects, that need to be behind the drummer but up in the air on this . With our drummer being on a riser, this is perfect for variable heights. I also read about "more assembly instructions"....if you can't figure out the assembly WITHOUT instructions AT ALL...you probably don't need to be messing with the lights anyway!
      ONLY thing...you need C clamps for additional fixtures. M/F has them for more than reasonable price, so no big deal. I bought 12 just to have enough!
      Great deal....glad I bought it...you will be too!

        What a great piece of equipment! If you want a good light truss, don't hesitate to buy this item, we also hung our back-drop from hooks at the top, this truss is a must for any pros out there that want a professional, durable stand! We used it at an outdoor festival and even with people up on stage & a windy day, this stand stayed put. Thank You Musician's Friend!

        If you will use this outside would highly recommend using anchoring. I use DOG-TIE-DOWN STAKES with Antenna wire and U-Bolts. I have loaded this thing down with 8 par38 cans, Laser Light, Fog and three moons. It can take it all with ease.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Lighting Stand with Truss:

        Purchased this truss system the other day and used it over the weekend,
        Simple to use fairly solid and secure, the whole system is a very thin aluminium which makes it very light but not the most sturdy, Had no problems with it, held 8 par 34 cans and a relay box.(did not need the T tops)
        I just was being very careful not to over tighten all the knobs because they looked flimsy , But had no Problem with it,
        Truss came with 2-1 foot sleeves to insert in the truss halves on the joint where they link, i guess to prevent the sag some were complaining about, Again I had No problem,
        Good value for the price paid and made the stage look like a million!

          The biggest complaint about this affordable and well built truss unit is the box used for shipping. Made in China and shipped by container, it doesn't see the abuse doled out by UPS, etc. The box is not rugged enough for the real world and arrived with miles of packaging tape, applied somewhere along the journey, to hold it together. Given the number of parts (dozens), it's a miracle everything arrived unscathed. It should be shipped inside a durable container.

            Dented in shipping. Truss sags easily. Hardware is soft - stripped threads by hand but is easy to replace. Great for small applications. I bought this just to get by. Doing weddings. Definitely plan on upgrading.

            I have used this once , and I think with a little modifying , it will be ok I need to make bigger holes and bolts (needs to be 3/8 instead of 5/16 in order to hold the lights more sucure), other than that , I believe it's a great product .

            great for the price
            If you have to many lights on the truss, the middle of the truss begins to sag, and come appart, even with the screws tigntened all the way. I bought 2 pins and drill holes were they meet..... Works Great!!

            It is very light and easy to set up
