Meteor ABC Controller




Great classic controller from Meteor!  This is the ABC controller which features 3 separate zones of control (Alpha, Beta Gama) that are sequenced together to produce 3 synchronized 4 channel output.  !, 2 3 or zero channels can be used all at the same time.  The controller has 16 different patterns that change randomly and the pattern is reflected on the 3 zone output.  Each zone has manual (bump) control for the entire group of channels or each channel individually.  Sound input is capable through the 1/4" connection on the rear of the unit.  Sound and sensitivity are adjustable per the 2 knobs on the front of the unit.  Great unit made here in the US!

Lumitrol 4 Channel Chaser With GL-3 Zoner



Great Chaser / Zoner from Lumitrol.  You can use this unit as a simple chaser, zoner, color organ or dimmer.  The unit features 4 Edison sockets or 5 pin mini-midi outputput.  The 5 pin mini-midi connects to additional (separate) zoner GL-3 pack.  From the zoner the control goes to dedicated dimmer / relay packs.  Sound to light can be accomplished by using the 1/4" audio connection on the rear.  Great controller / zoner system made in the US.

Times Square Par 46 Disco Spinners



Great classic units from Times Square!  These are spinner par 46 units.  Each unit has a 6 volt, 30 watt Par 46 bulb mounted in the top of a long extension that is pointed towards a rotating mirror.  The lamp and spinning motor are on separate circuits so they can be operated separately.  Great units made here in the US!

PSL (Programmi Sistemi Luce) Rot8tor Effect Unit



Another amazing effect from PSL!!  This is the Rot8tor unit that is very similar to the PSL Stress unit but adds a couple of additional features.  This unit uses a 24 volt, 250 watt ELC lamp housed in a very well designed access panel in the front of the unit.  The light projects through a focusing (shrinking) metal cutout then through 20 different gobos (on a rotating wheel).  The light then hits a special ring of dichoric glass pieces.  The dichoric glass pieces are mounted on a special assembly that rotates and expands / contracts.  The light then exits the unit through the front through a large convex lens.  The effect produces is multiple colored beams / images that rotate and expand / contract to the beat of music.  A total of 4 motors are in this unit.  1 for the gobo wheel, 1 for the rotation, 1 for the expanding / contracting function and 1 for the DC cooling fan.  A truly spectacular effect!  Super high quality unit from Italy!
