I thought I'd stop by and give folks a heads up on a light I bought a few months ago that's turned out to be great. It's a cheap and all plastic effect light sold on ebay. It goes by the title of something like - DMX512 Disco DJ Stage Lighting Digital LED RGB Crystal Magic Ball Effect Light. It's around $30.
- All plastic
- Not mountable to a pole by default (you'll have to make something)
- short power cord
- permanent power cord
- The price $30
- DMX or stand alone
- Really bright (6, 3W LED's)
- Can be used very close to a wall and still spread out nicely (see pics below)
- stupid light weight.
In these pics the light is behind the laptop screen to the right of the drums. It's angled at the wall.
It looks like this
