Drew Middlebrooks from ThreeLife Church in LaGrange, GA brings us these trusses lined with LED tape.
The main LED strip structures you see were constructed of twelve 5′ mini truss pieces by American DJ. 2 per column. They were fairly inexpensive and they found them to be a fantastic multipurpose piece to have around. Each column had 2 RGB LED strips on it, wired together so they functioned identically. The strips as a whole were controlled by only 3 decoder units.
A bit of advice Drew would give for anyone getting into RGB strips for the first time is really make sure you get a quality power supply. He got a $25 30-amp 12v power supply on Amazon and it really helped a lot compared to cheap smaller ones he has used in the past—much better output and consistent color.
The “blinder” portion of the rig consisted of eighteen 300watt par can 64 fixture run into an nsi 8000 dimmer. They were patched per column, so 6-channels of control.
Other stage elements consisted of 10 chauvet intimidator 150 spots – 6 flown and 4 on the ground. And 4 flown chauvet intimidator beam 350 fixtures. As well as 14 slim par 38 led fixtures.
