  • Best scanner?

    What would be the recommendation for the best bang for the buck for a band? I'd like to add 1 scanner on each side of our truss don't wanna spend a years salary but what's a good low priced scanner?

    I have some Chauvet intimidator 1.0's they are better than nothing but if you can afford a couple Intimidador 300's they would be a better long term scanner.

      Chauvet Intimidator Scan LED 300s are the best right now. The next step down would be the ADJ Inno Scan LED. The ones below that would be the Chauvet Intimidator Scan LED 200 or the ADJ X-Scan LED Plus, but they're far below either of the first picks. The important thing about the Intimidator Scan LED 300s is that they're the brightest, they have remote focus, and they have a great gobo selection.

        +1 on the Intimidator 300.  BTW, was cleaning out a section of the warehouse over the weekend and found a lightly used Intimidator 1.0

      Here's my old setup without fog, the intimidators do nothing really.

      But with fog there's a big difference

      Without fog is concentrate more on the multiLED's like the 3NX's or Fab5'a that I have....

        If you are not going to use fog, maybe concentrate on the pixel mapping LED par cans like the Blizzard Rok Pix, instead of scanners or movers. I find this fixture to be pretty amazing (but it's still going to be better with fog or haze).

      Yeah without haze you just don't get any beams.

        I havent used fog or haze in a long time, sold my last Fog machine when i got out of Djing heavily. I might be interested in haze if i can find a good deal on a good quality unit.
