I hate to do this, since I've more than once been guilty of going off the posted topic, but has anyone tried one of the folding harbin-style tables like Cellini used? I imagine they're quite expensive and wonder about their durability and stability - particularly if you had a larger top.

I used one in the beginning of the season this year and had a hell of a time with it. They are fairly flimsy and even with the cut outs on the legs topple easily in the wind.

I switched to one of those el-cheepo appearing tables that have a tripod base and a red table top with gold fringe. This was a much more sturdy table for 25 bucks than my $250 Russian job. But, even that had problems and in the end went to a busker style table similar to the tray jack and top but bigger, sturdier, and more portable. I also used a Lefler suitcase table with a framed tabletop when working my usual pitch and loved it. I could fit everything into it including my sound system. I'd flip that sucker open, put the top on it, yank out my amp can and iCue, put on the wireless mic and was good to go. It broke down quick too.

The downside was it was very heavy. So when working some of the other spots where I moved around a lot the other rig was a better fit.

I use the same thing as Danny for practically all my shows.

A small lefler pro table with my table top on top.
Everything fits in my lefler table except my new 12" rings.

Those I keep in the table bag with the tabletop.

A great combo. The lefler table is pretty heavy but the convenience outweighs the weight issue. Plus the wheels help. Hand Crafted Magic
