    Default I built my own stage!

    Having four little ones's it's hard to find space to practice music. So I decided to take over the garage! Now I have my own little music room, with a 8x4 stage that I built. It's my little escape I can go to after a long day of work. Here are the pics....

    Ohh and thanks Howlin' Hobbit for the review of the Prime PM-50. It's exactly what I needed. When the kiddos want to hop on the mic, I just plug in the ipod and they go to town. And the sound is great!

    Very nice Rod. That's a great little stage that should work great for some summertime (or anytime) parties. Good job.

    Thanks guys!

    It's actually a 16x4 stage, but the other half is disassebled right now so we can get another vehicle in the garage. We used the whole thing for my daughter's birthday party and we were able to get 4 people on easliy. If anyone ever needs instructions on how to build you own, below is a link with the walk-through that I followed, the only deviation I made was making mine 1.5' instead of 1'.

    Very nice, Rod! Your choice of the one and a half foot height for the stage was wise for sound and visibility purposes. Smart thinking! I did not see that Prime PA system being available anymore. I'm curious what would be an equivalent one-pice PA system with similar power. Ric

    Ric,

    I could not find the Prime PA available online as well. However, I searched on craigslist.com and found someone in Tucson, AZ. Lucklily they were nice enough to pack it up and ship it over to me in San Antonio, TX. It was worth the extra effort. Thanks for the comment!
