I want to buy one for my house gig.
I know cheap is bad....I've made that mistake in the past...buy cheap....not happy...sell at a loss and buy what you should have bought in the first place.
I don't need a hazer that can fill a forty foot stage, I just want something that is considered to be reliable and can do the job for a 20x12 deck.
All advice is welcome.
Tony?
cheers

You’re right, you won’t need much to get the effect you’re looking for. We use a Chavet Hurricane at church but that may a bit much for your venue. A little haze goes a long way. There was a contemporary Christian artist that used our worship center for a performance and set the fire alarm off with their haze machines. Even the hallways were hazed when the doors opened. Lol

We have a hazer at work...brand name is American DJ. Model number???? No idea, but will try to find out over the next couple of days.

We DO try to put up a nice "atmosphere" on our 38ft wide by 30ft deep stage. We get very good "beam effect" with our movers and the stage wash looks very nice with the dispersion of the colors LEDs and white fixtures.

edit to add:
The biggest problem is newbies who try to put the "fogger" juice into the hazer...fogger juice is a different chemical and can gum up your hazer. Forwarned!

Typically, we do NOT use the hazer at all, but when it is appropriate (specific concerts and theatrical events) we have very nice results.

Our hazer is probably close to 8-10 years old. We disperse the haze with a standard 16 inch fan to move the haze. We do not try to fill the theater, just the stage, with the resulting "splash over".

Only thing I would add is to use the water based juice and avoid the oil based.

Roly. That’s the one. Like Tony, we don’t use it that often. Usually it gets broken out for the youth retreat functions or other special events when we’re tryjng to get the most out of our movers and other lighting effects. Honestly I wish I knew more about lighting. I’m normally pretty busy with the audio side of things, but I pay attention to what our lights guys are doing. I know enough to push the button that moves everything to the next cue. Lol

In talking to my supervisor at work, he is not impressed with our hazer...perhaps my personal opinion is based on how much better it is than a traditional fogger. I still have not had time to get to it and get that model name...today, I promise I will try to get it today.

On the other hand, my boss gave me the name of the atmospheric unit he would like to have.

Now, before you dismiss, Shawn rarely endorses any product that he has not seen in use or heard in use or used himself...

We have a local mega church that has all the fancy digital components and all the support bells and whistles for lighting and video projection. That lighting designer will often be hired as a subcontractor by some of our clients to produce his magic in our venue. According to my boss, the lighting designer brought his personal atmospheric tool:
Antari brand Z350 Faser.

According to my boss, it uses fog juice but it is more of a hazer than many budget priced hazers...however he said this is a pricey unit. He told me that if we had the funds, he would have one in our inventory. I rarely see my boss praise equipment that we do not own.

It wasn't too many years ago there was enough cigarette smoke inside that you didn't need a hazer for that effect. LOL
