    i just ran across a website for a company that makes TONS of high-tech special effects equipment for movies, tv, concerts etc. they have high-powered fans, fog, mist, foam, bubble, and SNOW machines.The website is www.citcfx.com. has anybody used any of their equipment, and do you know how much it runs for?

    one of my concerns is moisture damage to instruments and amplifiers... is that an issue?

    You can make that kinda stuff. It's pretty easy to do with about 30 bucks and an afternoon. I'll take some picks and show you. The confetti launcher is cool.

    Steven Tyler said that special effects gave him bronchitis.
     
  10. Tape a sparkler to your bass, pretend you're a bass playing Ace Frehley.

    My band used to do Picolo Petes at shows in the late 80's early 90's. No way that could happen in today's local music seen.
