Ready to Buy- have nothing, need everything

Recommended Posts

If you are reading this, hopefully you have some items to SELL.:P

I've been looking at LOR since October and have been planning in my head on what I want to do but I have not purchased much other than a few LEDs from Walmart after Christmas (they were pretty picked over by then).

This year I'd like to do a Halloween show and a Christmas show and I need basically everything.....Controllers, Software, Cat5 cable, extension cords, props, lights (LEDs please), transmitter, sound system (?), etc. I probably even need stuff that I don't even know about at this point.

Please let me know what you have and how much you want for it and LET'S TALK! Package deals welcome.

I live in the Sacramento, California area but I am also in the Bay Area working during the week so we can figure on freight/postage or pick up.

Thanks,

Mike

I signed up but someone noted that they didn't expect much in the way of sales this year since LOR basically sold out and they are waiting for more inventory. Is that true?

I also need stuff that's non-LOL/MG

That MIGHT be true for their annual Inventory Reduction sale...but I can't imagine they would ask people to sign up for sale notifications if they still weren't going to have some sort of sale...

Garage sales are great for cheap show computers. Also good for speakers and tuner/amp. If your location can accomadate loud speakers, get large speakers and a good amp to drive them, you need a lot of punch for thunder for Halloween and hopefully won't blow the amp or the speakers. A pawn shop is also a good place to get speakers and such. Some people use cheap computer speakers too. If you need a transmitter, EDM is highly recommended here. You don't want to go cheap on a transmitter. If you're not picky about sound, your guests will be and may not return.

Welcome aboard!

I'm a former pro musician so sound is super important to me. My wife will LOVE it if I suddenly show an interest in. Garage sales this spring.

Ray (ny_yankee) is a good person to deal with. Just so everyone knows. I purchased his mega tree gear. All went smooth! Thanks Ray for being helpful.
Now back to my mad scientist thoughts..

No sense buying used buy new then you have warranty, with used equipment its buyer beware, unless you know the person you are buying from, there has been and will continue to be bad sellers out there, I buy all new either from LOR when it comes to controllers and things, for lights I trust 3 of the vendors that belong to LOR, unless you are a lawyer and can take legal action against the bad sellers I would stay clear of them. just my 2 cents

You're probably right on the electronic stuff. I'm a numbers guy and not super handy wtih tools or electronics. Besides, I have to see how it works first before I can try to fix it, being a Newbie and all. So I'm sure that I'll buy new controllers, software, etc. However, props and lights, supplies, that I can plug in to see if they work should be OK (I think)

Don't forget about cords, lots of them. Look at SPT wire and plugs. skycraft surplus usually has a good deal or SPT.

for Cat 5 cable...give monoprice.com a look, good product, excellent pricing..also, zip ties from there are decent quality and some of the least expensive I found, bought 6000 from them last year.

I'd sell you my entire display. But... it would depend how big that bonus check is.

Only kidding, he is really a nice guy, sometimes.

We will have both sales this year. Because of production delays last year some things ordered then are just now coming in so we will have product for the inventory reduction sale and we will have our regular Summer Sale with no limits on quantities.

That's outstanding Dan. Any thoughts on dates yet?

Inventory clearance will most likely be some time in the last two weeks of March. Summer sale in the July/August timeframe.

That would get you 3 controllers. What about the other 52? LOL

Based on the really nice display I have seen from William... you might need a couple million bucks to buy his :-)

Yeah, I need three more controllers myself to add to the two I bought already, so sort of waiting on the sale in hopes of saving a little more. I also need the wireless interface set for the controllers. I bought some outdoor speakers that are wireless and they will work somewhat but not anything high-quality. I am only going to run audio for the first show then shut it down and do FM only. I might have to do the rock speakers and an amp from amazon but getting the audio from the computer to the amp will be an issue without running wires across the floor of the house.
