Effects – Disco Ball / Mirrorball

Omega National Products is the last manufacturer of disco balls in the USA. There are many cheaper plastic imports available from China.

Large Mirrorballs

Andre Rieu is reported to use a 2m wide mirrorball in his concerts.

How to light a Mirrorball

The intense beam from a profile moving light is the best option, especially if the beam can be zoomed down to focus the light on a small area of just the surface of the ball. Generic profile lanterns are not good, as the beam isn’t intense enough. Pinspots can produce a good effect, and can be positioned further away from the ball.
