Alternative For Demo Throwing At Outdoor Events

Recommended Posts

I'm not really sure which forum this should go under, but here goes.

 

I do demos at some of the events I go to. I have a cumbersome kick wheel for demos. It comes apart to easily load. I was thinking it would be great to bring my little electric artista (easier on my body & lighter weight), but I do lots of outdoor events so no electric outlets.

 

Anyone have experience with battery packs for running a kick wheel? Thoughts? Suggestions?

 

Thanks!

I did three years of demos outside for the Blair County Arts Festival, as my school district was trying to keep it alive. My biggest piece of advice out of this is to WEAR A HAT. . . not a cap, but a full 360 degree brim hat. This will protect not only your head(mine is bald), but your neck and your eyes. The first show I did I did not have one on, and got blisters. . . no lie, the size of quarters all over my scalp; it took several weeks to completely heal! Always wear a hat now to protect from sharp objects and sun, or raiin. Just hate the snow or rain running off my head down my back!.  Long extension cords are often available if you are demo ing for the show itself. .  they like demos as it helps with the crowds.

 

 

best,

Pres

The small Honda generator is my first choice at LT says.

My second is a battery-a car one is best with an inverter.I use a car jumper battery at every show to convert to 110 v for my cash register but its a low amp draw. The thing is you need to know the motor amp draw for that wheel motor-post it here and we can see if its a go or no go.

Look on the motor plate for specs as they are not posted one the web-I looked .Post them here for us to see.

I use a little generator with a homemade sound shield and I always bring  very long extension cords on the chance that there may be surprise electricity.  The generator works like a charm and sometimes I get lucky with the power.
