I have a problem......
(no, not the mental one, I am already seeking help for that one)
I have a problem with deciding what lights to purchase.....
Recently I decided that dmx was the way forward. I have started the ball rolling with some Par 56's with a dimmer pack that plugs into my controller, but I have yet to make up my mind what to go with in respect of scanners, and it is now starting to drive me mad!!!!
We (the roadshow) have around £500 to spend at the moment, and I was looking at perhaps the Prolight Winner & Rover Scanners. (2 of each for around £500). However, I have not actually met anyone yet who has these lights, and am now begining to think cheapy cheapy cos they are not so good!!!!!
Does anyone have either of these, or perhaps the four head package that I keep seeing for sale on various websites??? are they any good???
Over the last couple of days tho, I have started looking at the Isolution lights too. When I first saw them, I just ignored them cos I wasn't overly keen on the asthetics of them in the pictures. However, after watching a few mpegs on the web of them, I am starting to think whether I should purchase a pair of either the 6s or swallow hard and have the 7s (bit more money).
Does anyone have either of these lights???? Can anyone decently review any of the lights I have mentioned here.....
And lastly, If there are any of you out there (and I am sure there will be) who think that all of the lights i have mentioned are a pile of what can you reccomned for £500.

I also have 4 of the prolight spot knight moving heads....... For around £200 each, again nothing comes close in my opinion.
Of course you can spend more money. but these lights take cheap 250w halogen bulbs and are certainly bright enough for most mobile venues.

I have had a set of 4 of their Mk1 Scimitars for 6 years and they have behaved faultessly in that time. I have 12 other Acme units, none of which has ever let me down.
The Winner and Rover offer a lot for the money.

Scans are fine on bigger rigs, just for a small setup, a couple of moons and pars would be plenty.
