Anyone Used This Setup?


Recommended Posts

So I bought 5 4ft white trees for this project;

So has anyone done this before? Did you use the RGB lights with the multi color wire?  Did that show when the lights were full white? 

Looking possibly at;

or

Would love to find some of these with white wire. :-)

Not yet.  I just knew that a member ordered single colored wire dumb strings.  That member was Steve.  I'm so far behind the times I don't even have my display down this year yet. :)

Mine is not totally down either. It's cold outside with piles of white stuff. It can wait. ;)

 

My 4ft. green "dumb" tree can be seen on my face book page in my signature if any wants to see it.

Then these are what you want

and for $24 for a string of 100 compared to a string of 50 for $19 its good value

That is a great value!  Just wish the shipping was cheaper. Guess even with shipping...pay a few more dollars for white wire it might be worth it.  Just wish I had seen this before getting those little 4ft trees. May have considered (still might) converting my "Twig" (Holdman) trees over to this.

Shipping is always less than stated on the site. If you email Ray first for a quote he will give you a better price. 

Right now is a holiday though, so wait a couple weeks.

After the 17th I need to get a test order together. No need to bother them until they go back to work.  For now I'm dreaming about props that are easy to setup/tear down and easy to store.

Exactly why I am going with a lot more rgb strips and pixels. Putting this DIY stuff together (soldering,splicing,wiring) is a pain, but it will make setup and tear down much easier.

Ok.

Maybe I need to start a new thread.

Not sure I can do both this year... but

which one (YOU VOTE! ;-0 ) should I do???

Or

I was going to replace the above with 5 4ft trees and find at least 1 6 or 7ft white tree (like the first picture) and do it in RGB.  But after seeing the white wire.... I might change out my incan.s on the above.  Hard to see but I have some shorter ones in front. 

 

And if I do change out the incan.s above...can I use maybe 100 RGB's on each 6ft / 7ft twig trees??? 

 

Anyone do this????

I have some of the twig trees from target a few years ago that have 600 of each color.  I know Kevin, "Wirekat" did them with 300 nodes and they looked good.  I think we will all have to try and see.  For me, more is always better except for setup and tear down.
