Stand Light

Four different approaches I have taken for lighting a music stand / script stand.

1. Cringe

Good: Center of stand is well lit. Simple to find replacement bulbs. Burly.
Bad: Limits mic placement. Sympathetic vibrations get into mic. May reflect sound into mic.

2. Okay

Good: Simple to find replacement bulbs. Burly. Less likely to limit mic placement.
Bad: Stand not evenly lit. Sympathetic vibrations get into mic.

3. Like

Good: Unlikely to limit mic placement. Too small for significant vibration or reflection.
Bad: Stand not evenly lit. Easier to break. Bulbs more difficult to source.

4. Love

Good: Nice light distribution. Highly unlikely to limit mic placement. No significant vibration or reflection.
Bad: Easier to break. Bulbs more difficult to source.
