Default Cooling on stage

What do you guys use in this sunny days?

Im using a ventilator standing on the floor and looking for some other (mountable) options at home and live.

http://www.blowitfans.com/

Are there more of these mountable fan builders?

You get battery operated clip- on fans for about $15 or so.. which works ok, but I sweat it regardless.

I used to use this when I made cabinets, and now I use it when I play at gigs, and at practice. Usually at practice we have a huge 3 foot (1meter) diameter fan thats pointed at the band. Well the drumset blocks most of the air flow, so I just sit this bad boy next to me and it works great.
Down here in Texas it gets pretty hot. Yesturday we practiced from 9am - 4pm and the Temp was 98F with heat index of 105F. Of course I kept drinking water and there was a little sweat but the fan is really what saves me from baking alive. You should expect to pay around $50 for it. I wouldn't accept anything over $60 just because you can get it online cheaper that.

It also has two power outlets for anything you might need, as well as being really small and compact, but because it's a rotary fan it has a lot of output. You can also adjust it to point in many different angles.
And believe me this thing is rugid, I've dropped mine from 15feet in the air, it's rolled around in the back of a truck many times, and had some concrete spilled on it, this thing is a trooper. Heh, maybe I should get some money from stanley for promoting this! LOL

Anyway, here's my recommendation...

My personal fav is the Patton fan. Total industrial strength. I've seen these fans live over 20 years.

I actually use 3 circus midgets fanning me with palm leaves. But when they aren't abailable I use a clip mounted fan. ;)

I strongly second Fett's recommendation of the Lasko 655702. Not only does it throw some serious air but it is compact and has two grounded outlets on it. Perfect for a submixer or whatever else you need to plug in. We all know how outlets and extension cords become non-existent once the self proclaimed "superior beings" known as guitar players show up. And as a bonus Lasko makes extremely rugged fans. When I retired my Lasko 10" Breeze Machine after ten years (and still going strong) of faithful service for the 655702, I could have sworn I heard it say: "WTF dude????".

Yes, my equipment speaks to me. The only issues arise when I reply :)

HAHA! That would actually be pretty cool for stage presence, especially during a drum solo.

I have a Stanley industrial type blower that's pretty small (about 10"x10" footprint), but shoots a strong, directional flow. I can only use it on "1" because it's too much otherwise, even on the hottest day (we do our share of fairs and sheds.)

It's about $40.

nicko mcbrain uses a cO2 fire extinguisher to cool him down, but if you breathe it in, you die, not reccomended.
