This is a very large and heavy light. This is a direct copy of a F.A.L. Twinflower PF 518. If anyone has any additional info please post up. Unit has constantly rotating large dichoric wheels with green, red, orange and yellow colors on it with 2 - 36 volt, 400 watt EVD bulbs in front of the wheels. The light then goes out 2 large convex lenses onto mirrors that swivel and spin. The spin function is controlled via an internal microphone so it responds to the beat of the music. Unit can also be controlled 0 - 10 volt analogue through a 1/4" plug on the top of the unit. Fixture has 8 motors on it. 2 AC motors for the constantly rotating dichoric mirrored dishes, 2 DC motors for the swivel of the mirrors, 2 DC motors for the spinning of the mirrors and 2 for the cooling fans. Unit made in China. This unit is currently for sale!! I posted up the F.A.L. brochure so you can see how similar the 2 units are.

Very unique light! This is a Lytequest Dancing Strobe. Unit is not complete. When I received the unit it was revealed that the strobe rotating shutter and motor were taken from the unit. It still functions great without the strobe function, but not as cool. Unit has a 250 watt, 120 volt bulb on the rear which projects through 2 stacked lenses then onto a rotating drum with colored glass on it. Pretty cool effect. Unit has 2 motors. 1 for the rotating glass wheel and 1 for the cooling fan. Missing the 3rd for the strobe shutter. Unit made in Taiwan.

Another unit from the D.J Series from Martin...The Magic Moon. Unit uses a 24 volt, 250 watt EHJ bulb that has a rotating mirror dish behind it. The light reflects off the mirror dish, through a convex lens, onto a rotating dichoric mirrored prism then off a few stationary mirrors then out from the unit. The mirror dish and dichoric prism are sound activated from an internal microphone. Unique effect unit! Unit has 3 motors. 1 for the rotating prism, 1 for the mirror dish and 1 for the cooling fan. Fixture made in Denmark.
This is another classic from Martin! From the D.J. series this is a Sweeper unit. Very similar to the Abstract Rave unit. I just got this one in and it realy needs a cleaning!! Unit has a 120 volt, 100 watt EFP lamp on each end that project from each side onto a spinning dichoric glass prism in thde center. Thed prism is sound active and is triggered from a michophone on one one end of the light. The output is a super fast changing crazy beams of light! Unit has 3 motors. 1 for the rotation mirror and 2 for the cooling fans. Fixture made in Denmark. Unit is currently for sale!!
