    I need to purchase two confetti cannons tomorrow. I have only worked with the cheap hand held units, but we need something more. I have been looking online....anyone have one that they love?

    Hi Tom,
    I purchased this unit earlier this year & absolutely love it! Not sure of what your budget is, but this unit really has a great output--on the order of 35 feet if shot on a 45 degree angle. I used it for the end of HS Musical-and am still receiving complements about it.

    Le Maitre makes some cannons, however, I have no experience with them

    www.lemaitrefx.com under paper products.

    The La Maitre cannons are decent. They use a screw-in CO2 canister for each shot. We've been getting shots traveling up to 45 ft in distance and 25 ft in the air. I use them daily in a rep show and am quite fond of the effect. They tend to be very subject to how they are loaded -- you must do it the exact same way day to day to reproduce the effect (I've seen the payload barely make it out of the barrel due to an air leak or bounce off of the ceiling and get hung up in conduit if things are packed in too tightly). The consumables add up a bit too -- roughly $10-$12 per shot per cannon, depending on the payload.

    my theater made our own.........hmmmm...where did i put those?


    They are re-enforced PVC pipe that hooks up to our compressed air system. Really nice, but will not work if you don't have a large compressed air system.

    Cool thing though. have never had a explosion or damage from any of them.

    interested?
