Stage scrims are a critical part of your band stage presence. Stage scrims (or amp scrims) are an easy way to draw attention to your band’s logo and your identity. It is our firm belief that a solid set of stage scrims can dramatically increase the impact you have at all your gigs.
There’s a lot of attention placed on rehearsing band songs, choreography and fine tuning your music playing abilities, but at the same time, you cannot neglect your stage setup. One easy way to quickly set a stage with a powerful setup is with a pair of stage scrims.
Here are some tips on how to buy the right band scrims for your band:
1. Pick the right size stage scrims. Generally, we recommend 6’x6′ stage scrims since they provide the perfect balance of size and ease of setup/teardown time. 6’x6′ amp scrims are tall enough to stand in clear view even with your players moving around in front of them, and there’s plenty of space on a 6 foot tall by 6 foot wide banner for you to clearly place your band logo and other artwork. This size stage scrim takes about 30 seconds to setup once you build your stand for your stage scrim with this great video that we created.
2. Think about setup. Stage scrims that are not set up appropriately on stage won’t make a big splash on stage. Having worked with hundreds of bands, we have learned that the most common and often the most effective setup is to play the stage scrims on either side of your drummer. Now, the stage scrims can act as perfect amp scrims when they cover the amps, and there’s plenty of room to move around in front the scrims.
Depending on your setup, you may need larger stage scrims.
3. Make them pop. Stage scrims will greatly enhance your band’s shows if the colors contrast sharply with each other and pop in your fan’s eyeballs.
