    Something not all that big/heavy/obtrusive that you can bring seems preferable for a lot of people, even if you don't use it that much.

    For a while, I had those inflatable turntable pillow things in my record bag (proabbly still have them somewhere). Flat out saved at least one pop-up gig where the only real alternative was to switch to an iPod or something. I've also run home to get my iso-acoustics speaker stands to put CDJs on after somebody thought it was an okay idea to use subwoofer cabinets as table legs...it didn't work great, but the jog wheels stopped vibrating.

    When you're dealing with rampant incompetence, anything you can do is worth it, even if it's not ideal.
    Thats insane that you guys run into it so often. Luckily, I have only had it happen once. In that instance, it was "Thank you for the deposit and hotel, but Im not playing on that setup tonight."

    TBH this is a super horrible way to setup sound period. Not only will that interfere with small electronics, it will effect jog wheels, loosen screws, etcetera. Not to mention making turntables complete unusable.
    There wasn't a sound tech guy at all, and I doubt they'd care really. Was more just looking to avoid having the same issue in the future in a similar situation.
