I have gigged the LiteConsole GO for a number of years now. This premium booth has served me well, but hasn’t been without its issues. The GO retails at the best part of £1,000, and for that amount of money, the carry bags it comes with are quite pathetic. One of the plastic shelves arrived cracked on delivery and although this was replaced, it wasn’t long before damage occurred to another of the three shelf sections of the unit. With the bags full of holes and glue holding various bits and pieces together, I decided it was time for an upgrade.
My attention had recently been drawn to two new booths which both appeared reasonably priced, the ADJ Pro Event Table II and the Equinox Truss Booth System. I attempted a bit of online research but couldn’t for the life of me figure out the difference between the two stands. It turns out that there is none other than the branding. I believe the original Pro Event Table was slightly less portable, but the second incarnation came apart in the middle, the same as the Equinox version.
After a failed delivery from Bax and lots of back and forth with PayPal to get my money refunded, I found a reputable seller on eBay and got next day delivery on the ADJ Pro Event Table II for £279. The carry bag was another £40, and the corner shelves a further £25. Less than £350 for an extremely impressive looking DJ Booth seemed too good to be true, but the reviews and videos I’d seen online made me think it was worth a punt.
I wasn’t disappointed. The first thing that struck me was the sheer size of the Pro Event Table. I’m not sure if it is because of what I’m used to with the LiteConsole GO, but this thing is huge. Having said that, the booth is still extremely portable. This unit is made up of two sturdy aluminium sections which fold in half for transportation. There is also a main shelf, two metal bars and a front board which can be used for branding purposes such as a custom graphic. The guys at Signs and Print UK made me a suitable replacement board for less than £100 which looks great.
I’ve already had a number of compliments on the new setup. Although my previous DJ booth also had a very professional and clean look, the Pro Event Table gives me more presence. There are a number of tweaks that can be made (moving heads on the shelves and a laptop stand attached to the truss are just a couple of ideas) to really make the booth your own. These are in addition to the customised front board.
If I was being really picky, the only small gripe as far as the Pro Event Table is concerned is with cabling. There’s not much to hide behind and to be really neat, you need to be quite cute with running any leads along the truss and securing with a tie of some sort. I use a combination of Bungee Balls and Gravity Speaker Pole Clips. I highly recommend the Gravity clips.
There are other options to resolve this issue. You can either buy the scrim for around £40, or get a piece of board or fiberglass cut to size that would cover the front of the frame. These are both fairly inexpensive ways to provide a bit more freedom with cabling.
This is arguably the best piece of DJ equipment I have ever bought in terms of quality, functionality and value for money. There’s definitely nothing ‘off the shelf’ I’d prefer. The Pro Event Table II is a game changer for the Event DJ.
