On-Stage LS7730 Lighting Stand with Truss

As a leading supplier of support stands to the world, the company mission—-affordability, durability and innovation—-is built into every product.

When it comes to testing every rig before it enters the marketplace, these stage lighting stands must survive the rigors of performance testing under a variety of production environments to make certain that everything—down to critical locking pins—meets corporate standards.

The On-Stage LS7730 has the capability of being all things to all people: There are two tripod-base stands fitted with three telescoping vertical shafts for quick set-up and tear down.

Tension-locking knobs and pins adjust to keep the unit secure. Even when it’s in full expansion mode (11.5-feet), the T-bars accommodate four-part cans each, and there are two 5-foot truss sections ready to secure and hold another four cans (not included) that can total 16 lighting par cans.

With a weight capacity of 200 pounds, this low-cost unit can be set up in a New York minute using screw-on plastic brackets and thumb screws to properly adjust the height of the stand to suit the needs of the production.

With a base spread of 48-inches, there’s enough stability to stand up to a 16-light mount. The LS7730 is in it for the long haul thanks to high-grade aluminum materials beneath black powder coating.

Professional and amateur stage crafters are not shy about their experiences, and it’s to them we turn for the skinny on how this rig performs in action.

While we encountered a couple of whines about package damage attributed to the shipper rather than the manufacturer, even techs who tried substituting a competitor say they’ve lived to regret their decision. “Buy On-Stage” one insisted, “that’s what all the professional sound studios use.”

In addition to product quality, the number of brand fans purchasing the LS7730 who rave about fast assembly is so diverse; we found ourselves searching for one buyer who disagreed and came up empty.

The price ranges from $169 to $368 so shop around for the best deal.

If you’re expecting to light a stage that’s filled with performing bodies, things could get crowded given this stand’s vertical expanse. That stated, this consensus of feedback is worth noting:

-Crews have no problem lining things up efficiently and quickly.
-Learning the art of setting the pins takes time, but it would take a bulldozer to collapse the rig once mastered.
-So solid and thick it makes “thin umbrella shaft” competitors look wimpy.
-Stage crew members didn’t expect double vertical extension tenacity and heavy-duty connectors.
-“So large and impressive, size alone makes people think ‘Wow, these guys have their stuff together!’”
-Sturdy carry cases protect LS7730 components from damage during transport.
-Extra touches count: On-Stage replacement parts don’t cost a fortune in the off chance something breaks.
-Cleverly designed to hold a banner in case the stand must do double-duty as an advertising vehicle.

Runner Up:

Odyssey LTMTS1-PRO Lighting Truss System

Odyssey Lighting sticks to stage production lighting and doesn’t veer off into the land of audio-visual or musical equipment. Because the company has a refined focus, the brand name is known throughout domestic and foreign stage lighting and production communities.

Billed as “the truss system safer to use than cable-based systems,” the LTMTS1-PRO has full cranking capability to lift the rig to a top height of 8.5-feet.

Like our top pick, it handles 200 pounds nicely along a 10-foot horizontal span, but you can only rig up eight lights, less than half the capacity of the aforementioned On-Stage system. Crew can easily schlep this around at 50-pounds total and the price tag works for production companies still operating on a shoestring.

Crew can easily schlep this around at 50-pounds total and the price tag works for production companies still operating on a shoestring.

Complaints from shoppers seem to be centered (literally) on their experiences with middle sway on the crossbeam, but other purchasers are delighted by the bang they get for the buck and recommend treating this stage lighting product with some TLC by not pushing the cranking mechanism to extremes so the system enjoys a long life.

For those who have been forced to work with a four-light truss until now, eight-light capability is like arriving in Nirvana (the Viking heaven, not Curt Cobain’s digs).

For lighting directors and techs given responsibility for maintaining, moving and setting up the LTMTS1-PRO, their admonition is to treat materials that go into the manufacture of this system with caution: all-plastic connectors will hold up nicely if they’re treated with respect.

Snag some O-clamps to avoid denting the truss once those lights are hung. “Easy to load, setup and store; for the price, how could you not buy two more?” one satisfied customer asked.

Honorable Mentions:

Odyssey Lighting Tripod and Truss Package

Why put another Odyssey system atop our Honorable Mentions list? Because plenty of stage directors are seeking a more expansive system that comes with a pedigree and this tripod and truss package are the whole enchilada.

The system includes two Odyssey LT-P2 Tripod Lighting Stands fabricated of sturdy black aluminum that cover 12-feet and one Odyssey LTMTS1-PRO Lighting Truss System with 8.5-foot elevation capacity when cranked to the summit.

With a comparable weight load capacity of 200 pounds and 8-light capacity, this system comes with rubber bottom covers to reinforce stability.

Plenty of outspoken stand-buying professionals extol the virtues of this system’s fast, easy set-up and we’ve yet to find one who states they would be hesitant to recommend this rig to a colleague.

In concert, this product is well-built, stable and eminently affordable in light of the number of elements that are included in one price.

For music types turning to Musician’s Friend for the whole truth and nothing but the truth, comments like, “I’ve no clue how they make money” on this system because “this truss system is enormous” resonate.

Of course, nothing’s perfect. Even handy techs find it difficult to follow assembly instructions and, according to one, you can’t even count on the free Allen wrench to do its job. On a lighthearted note, one buyer warns readers not to use the Odyssey Lighting Tripod and Truss Package for gymnastics!

Is this too far fetched a suggestion? Not if you’re buying this lighting stand to showcase performers who tend to abuse stage equipment while performing (intentionally or not so much). But what sealed the deal for shoppers is-—well, the deal.

If you price individual items needed to put together this system and then compare that total to this complete package, it’s hard to imagine not seeing the value in acquiring the entire system.

On-Stage Stands LS7720BLT Lighting Stand with Side Bars

Need an easy way to remember this model if you’re still lusting after our top pick but you’re just starting out or you’re still living in your parent’s basement? We call this honorable mention “LS7730 Lighting Stand with Truss Light”; the downsized version of our top pick, yet it costs less than $100.

Finding reviews lower than 4.5- on a 5-point scale has proven impossible, so let’s just say that the BLT with Side Bars is a classic that responds to knob adjustments nimbly and the locking pins double up on security so your walls won’t come tumbling down when you can least afford to have them do so.

Despite being the Light version of the big boy, this unit supports four cans on the T-bar and four on the side mount bars. The telescoping vertical shaft is engineered with three sections for smooth expansion, and the stand has a respectable base spread of 48-inches.

Made of the same high-grade aluminum used for the On-Stage LS7730, you can extend the height to 10-feet employing the friction-locking knobs/locking pins hardware.

“I’d recommend this stage lighting equipment to a friend” say untold numbers of website shoppers but if you’re orchestrating an extravaganza, don’t even think about purchasing this affordable rig because it has limitations.

You’re not going to be able to affix enough light cans to illuminate a Broadway stage because this rig only supports 110-pounds.

It’s hard to beat the features and the price for the solid construction, stability, transport and set-up benefits. Any attempt to overload this rig with extra cans can put your production at risk, so appreciate safety features (e. g., pegging to secure the center stand) and don’t overload your system.

This likely doesn’t describe you because you’re methodical and craft plans in plenty of time to troubleshoot, but we feel the need to share the story of a shopper who decided to buy the 7720BLT on the day he intended to use it for a performance.

To his delight, he removed it from the package to find the unit much taller than he imagined yet there was nothing fragile about the stand. “Go buy this truss; it’s awesome!” he enthused, but don’t take the chance he took by buying it on the first day you intend to use it or you may not share his luck.

Chauvet DJ GigBAR 2 4-in-1 Lighting System with Stand

You knew we couldn’t leave out a lighting system that’s got more bells and whistles than a Pink Floyd tribute band’s rig, right? The Chauvet 4-in-1 System comes with everything but a trained tech to help you get it up and running.

Don’t let the “DJ” designation fool you; plenty of stage directors pick this rig because they love the special effects that turn an ordinary stage into a wonderland, though you may have to arrange for installment payments if your plastic won’t cut it.

Spring for the Chauvet 4-in-1 and you’re ready to rock:
-Stage size is unimportant because the LED lighting system floods even expansive areas.
-Control the action from your choice of electronics: display, wireless foot switch, DMX or your cousin Greg.
-Adjustable laser-cast beams and dots can flood the stage with movement and excitement.
-Pars and strobes promote whatever color mixing effects you can dream up.
-This package includes carry bags, tripod, a remote, mounting brackets and wireless foot switch.

Is this pricey system for everyone? Hardly. But fans are a so wild about it we would be hard-pressed to leave it off our list simply because it’s so unique. While the majority of buyers use this unit for DJ gigs, plenty of stage techs wouldn’t take a substitute if offered to them because they love the way this unit bathes a stage in exciting color during live musical performances.

But what wins the hearts and minds of stage lighting pros is the fact that this Chauvet rig weighs less than a healthy Thanksgiving turkey.

THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO BUYING LIGHTING

Lighting can often be overlooked when it comes to re-decorating, because it is often thought of as a utilitarian rather than a key factor in the overall décor of your room. But, when chosen correctly, your lighting can become a true focal point and is guaranteed to take your home design to the next level!

We have put together the ultimate light buying guide to help you to choose the correct lighting for each room in your home, with the perfect balance of style and substance. Because choosing the correct lighting is not as simple as you may initially think…

Wofi Viso Pendant Designer Bar Light

CONSIDER THE SIZE OF THE ROOM

The first step to choosing the correct lights for your home is to work out how much light you need in a room to keep it well lit.

In 2010, the way we measure bulb brightness changed. Bulb brightness used to be referenced in wattage (W), but now it is referenced in lumen (LM).

Each room in your home will require a different number of lumens in order to be lit adequately. To work this out, you can check an illumination chart which will show you the ideal number of footcandles or lux you will need for a certain task.

A footcandle = the amount of light on a surface created by one candela that is a foot away from the surface.

A lux = the amount of light on a surface created by one candela that is a metre away from the surface.

One candela = the light from one standard candle.

If you are using feet, look at the number of footcandles. One footcandle is equal to 1 lumen per square foot. Multiply the number of footcandles by the square foot in the room and this will tell you how many lumens are required. 

If you are using metres, look at the number of lux. One lux is equal to 1 lumen per square metre. Multiply the number of lux by the square metres in the room and this will tell you how many lumens are required. 

Find our illumination chart below:

And if you’d like to see how the kelvins will affect your room, you can use this useful tool from 1000bulbs.com, which shows how the colour temperature will transform the lighting in this kitchen space.

UNDERSTAND THE THREE USES OF LIGHTING

Now that you know how many lumens are requires in each room, the next step is to understand the three main uses of lighting. Don’t make the common mistake of thinking that one type of lighting will suffice for an entire room. Lighting works much better when used in layers. So, it’s important that you put together a lighting plan for each room, and a successful lighting plan should include three uses of lighting: ambient, task and accent.

Wofi York Designer Light Set Lighting Collection

Ambient Lighting

Ambient lighting is the main light source in the room and will usually be your starting point. This lighting will determine the overall mood within the room, for example a living room will have a warmer and more relaxing tone than that of a workspace. Ambient lighting tends to come from recessed lighting or wall light fixtures within the room.

Task Lighting

Task lighting is focused light that is used when tasks will be carried out in the room. A good example of this is a desk lamp, which will often be adjustable in order to illuminate areas that you need the most to help you carry out tasks. 

Another example is vanity lighting above a mirror and under-cabinet lighting in a kitchen.

Accent Lighting

Accent lighting is the most decorative type of lighting in the room, its used to highlight focal features such as wall art, bookshelves and fireplaces. Accent lighting could also be a focal point itself if you go for a statement piece. For example, our Wofi Indigo Ceiling Light Often floodlights, track lights, picture lights and wall-mounted fixings are used.

KNOW THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LIGHTS AVAILABLE

Getting creative with your lighting will mean mixing different types of lights together, so its important that you know the different options available on the market.

Ceiling lights

Almost every room will have ceiling lights because they usually provide the ambient lighting within the room. The two main types of ceiling lights are pendent and flush lighting. Pendant lights hang down from the ceiling usually by a cord or chain whereas flush lights have little or no gap between the light fitting and the ceiling. There’s a vast array available on the market from strikingly stylish to the functional, and here at Lighting Style, we like to mix the two together!

Floor Lamps

Floor lamps are often pigeonholed to the ambient light category and also in the task lighting category, this is because they are perfect for adding extra illumination in rooms that need it but they can also be the perfect adjustable overhead lamp to add focused light in required areas. They are also ideal for adding smaller amounts of light in a room when needed, for example in the living room on an evening when you don’t want the main lights on, but you do want a small amount of light.

Shop floor lamps here.

Table Lamps

Table lamps are extremely versatile as they can be placed anywhere and usually create the task lighting within your room. They’re often adaptable to allow for versatile use, for example dimmable for a bedside table or adjustable for desk work. You could go for an extravagant design and use it as part of the room décor too, the options are endless!

Shop desk lamps here.

Wall Lights

Wall lighting does it all. They can create gorgeous accent and highlight focal

points within the room beautifully. They can help illuminate hallways and larger

rooms and add to the ambience within the room. They’re ideal outside lighting, or

when placed strategically they’re great task lights for focused reading.

Shop wall lights here.

Spotlights

Spotlights enhance visibility where you need it, they’re ideal task lighting. They are either made of several spotlights along a metal bar or a singular bright light that sits close to the ceiling. They can usually be adjusted to point in the correct direction for your needs.

GET THE RIGHT BULBS

Now that you know the different types of lights available, it’s time to choose the right bulbs! Many of our lights come with LED’s already installed, but some you will need to get the bulbs additionally if stated in the product description.

There are three main types of blubs; LED’s, CFL and Halogen. Incandescent bulbs are now being phased out.

LED’s: LED bulbs are a great eco-efficient option. They typically use 90% less energy than an incandescent bulb. They last the longest, they’re cheap to run and produce very little heat. Here at Lighting-Style we only stock LED’s (we think they’re fab!). Plus they are extremely versatile, meaning that during the manufacturing process they can be integrated straight into the frame of a light to create stunning strips of light, as seen in the image below:

wofi indigo led ceiling light

CFL: Short for compact fluorescent lamp, CFL’s are the most common type of energy-saving bulb. They typically use 60-80% less energy than an incandescent bulb. They are a cheaper alternative to LED’s but they do take a while to reach their optimum brightness which can be frustrating when you need the light to complete a task.

Halogen: The cheapest of the three, halogen bulbs are dimmable but typically have a shorter lifespan. They use 20-30% less energy than an incandescent bulb.

At Lighting Style, we only offer LED’s. You can see our range below:

types of bulbs chart

Choose the bulbs that best suits your lamp or light shade. Our decorative light bulbs are another great way of making a statement in your home, we have various lights where the bulb will still be visible, for example our Wofi Richael Pendant Light, so pairing with a statement bulb will make the light all the more stunning.

Cap

The cap, which is the base of the bulb, holds the bulb firmly in place while providing an electrical connection between the light and the bulb. In the above images you can see the cap type referenced under each image (E27, E14, G9, GU10 etc…). You will need to know the cap type of your light or lamp before purchasing a bulb for it.This can be found in all of our product descriptions, most typically an E27 or E14 bulb will be suitable, just be sure to check!

The kelvin scale

The next step is to understand the kelvin scale. The kelvin scale is used to describe the warmth or coolness of the light. The colour spectrum ranges from the yellow-based colour to the blue-based colour. As an example, people often prefer the yellow-based colours in a living room, and the blue-based colour in a utility, but there’s no right or wrong it’s ultimately down to your personal preference.

See our kelvin scale below.

light kelvin temperature scale

Many of our LED lights can be temperature adjusted to suit your desired kelvins throughout the day. However, most of our LED lights are set at a default of 3000K, which gives a nice cosy feel to the room.

Once again just be sure to check the product description to see what the temperature is set to and also if it can be adjusted. 

HOW TO LIGHT EACH ROOM IN YOUR HOME 

While the layout of the room is down to your individual taste, there are some tips that we can give you that will work well for each room in your home.

Firstly, you need to decide on what mood you would like to create in each room and what type of lights will complement your personal style and the current design in your home.

Entryway Lighting

This is arguably the most important area to ensure a grand entrance and a good first impression is created. Start with a dramatic statement light such as a chandelier overhead light, and then complement this with a floor lamp.

Kitchen Lighting

Kitchens are very busy spaces, where food preparation will take place. This means it must be illuminated well, especially in areas where you will be carrying out food preparation. Check out our blog post on kitchen lighting ideas for more inspiration!

You should start with general ambient lighting, we would suggest a pendant light or track lighting if you have a feature in the room, such as a kitchen island or breakfast bar, but if not recessed lighting will work well too.

You will also require task-orientated lighting where food preparation will take place, this can be provided by the addition of an under-cabinet lighting system. This will ensure that the kitchen is illuminated well enough in the areas that really need it, avoiding shadows being cast over knives and other potentially dangerous tools.

Dining Room Lighting

A common mistake with the dining room is hanging a chandelier over the table and thinking that is enough light for the whole room. It’s important to remember to create layers. A statement light over the dining room table is a great start, a chandelier or a pendant light will look stunning. Check out our blog post on dining room lighting ideas for more inspiration!

You then need to balance this, a great way to achieve this is to have recessed or track lighting, this will create the layers and avoid the room looking flat.

Living Room Lighting

The most multi-functional room in the home, the living room is an all-purpose area where you will watch TV, read books, chat with friends and family or do homework. This means the lighting in this room needs more diversity, to reflect the diverse tasks that are carried out in the room.

For general ambience, a pendant light or flush ceiling light overhead will create a good amount of light for the room. Then add floor and table lamps or sconces situated in task areas to provide more direct light, for example, if you have an armchair you like to read in or an area on the sofa where you tend to carry out tasks.

Bathroom Lighting

Vanity lighting is perfect for the bathroom, if you have a mirror in the bathroom then they are perfectly situated at the top of this. Not only will this add to the décor of the room, but it also adds the perfect amount of lighting in front of the mirror to help you when you’re getting ready in the morning. 

For the general ambient lighting in the room, wall scones and recessed lighting will work a treat, and it’s always a good idea to get dimmable lights in the bathroom so that you can dim them when you would like to relax in the bathtub.

Bedroom Lighting

The perfect place to unwind and revive yourself, it’s important to have soft ambient lighting in the bedroom. A decorative semi-flush ceiling light that can be dimmed will give the perfect ornamental feature while providing you with soft ambient lighting. Complement this with accent lighting on the walls to give an extra luxurious feel. Many people also like to read in bed, so either an adjustable table lamp to go on your bedside table or a wall-mounted reading lamp is essential.

Home Office Lighting

You’ll need this area to focus on work, so this room needs function-orientated lighting. For the general ambience, recessed lighting or a flush overhead light will provide the main illumination for the room. Then you’ll need a desk lamp that can be adjusted in your main work area, and perhaps a floor lamp in dark corners or situated over the top of seating areas within the room.
