  • What's your next upgrade?

    Just curious what everyone's next upgrade to their lighting rig would/will be?

    As some might have read, mine is on it's way.... new truss and crank stands.... American DJ/Duratruss Light Bridge One system.

    My other future upgrades will hopefully include a new hazer, new controller (hardware or computer based), perhaps more wireless DMX wicicles.

    My immediate upgrade goals:

    4 more Blizzard 3NX
    4 more Chauvet pinspot 360

    To fill out my 20' truss.

    Then after that, upgrade my scanners to moving heads. I'm thinking Chauvet 260's

    And maybe a hazer. I'll see how I do with the smoke machine.

      I have 8 Q12+ on 2 T stands. Next I want 2 more stands (crank), 4 mover/scanners, and a hazer.

    This week brought 4 more Q12a lights so I have to lay low for a little while.  Might actually unbox the Show Designer 1 I bought 2 years ago and program it.

      The more I think about it, the more Chauvet LED 300 scanners make more sense. The size, weight make a difference and the ability to punch through with the brightness.

      Hmm

        This seems to be the way I am headed also. Not too big, not to small - just right. If I could wish for anything else it would be that the prism rotated.

      wiCICLEs to replace these crap SIRS-E wireless units. Then some Intimidator 300 scanners and a Magic 260 controller.

          I see gobos rotating but not the prism. Also, the DMX table seems to indicate that it does not:

          Prism

          000-003   Open
          004-255   Stop, static prism effect

           

          Close enough for rock and roll though!

          My "upgrade" will be to start buying my own lighting fixtures.... Blizzard Fab 5 looks like a decent value for a full color wash light. (I want basic lighting for public speaking events before I get eye candy.). Mark C.

        Yeah. Moving prism would be nice. I'm just not crazy about 40 - 65lbs per fixture to get it...

          That is a downside to the featureset of the Scan LED 300 - the prism does not rotate.  The only fixtures in the Intimidator LED range to have a rotating prism are the Spot LED 350 and the new Spot LED 450.  The Spot LED 350 is only 22.7lbs, but the pricetag is a bit heftier than the Scan LED 300, and the fixture is significantly less compact & easy to find a case for.
