Every DJ or producer knows that putting on a great show is about more than just the sound. Creating an experience relies on the right atmosphere, whether it's at a dance club or the stage of a concert hall or theater. Lighting effects packages are a powerful tool in creating that atmosphere, with their ability to set the energy and mood in a venue.A stage lighting package can be as simple as a pair of PAR cans or a wash lighting set, which are good choices if you're looking to expand an existing setup or if you just need a bit of accent lighting. Modern lights may use either LEDs or traditional bulbs and lamps, with each type having its own advantages. LEDs can give you advanced color-changing effects and they last a long time without needing to replace a bulb. Traditional lamps, on the other hand, are much more suitable for dimming and have a warmer tone than LED lights.If you're starting from scratch, take a look at some complete lighting systems. These bundled sets come with everything you need to get your stage lighting off the ground, from the truss stand and your basic PAR cans to the dimmers, DMX controllers and even special effects. There are also a ton of specialty lighting effects available to complete your setup. From trackers, strobes and sirens to beams, color balls, mirror balls and more, they're a great way to take your lighting effects package to the next level. A few high-energy effects will add excitement to your set and get the crowd movingâ€”just what any DJ wants to see.It doesn't matter if you're a DJ, producer, set manager or any other position that puts you in charge of the stage. As long as you're in charge of the lighting, these effects packages are a good way to get that responsibility well in hand and provide the stunning visual effects to make a big impact on the audience.
