f.a.l. Alligator



Great unit from f.a.l.  This is the Alligator unit that is very similar to a Lampo 'Little Star' style unit but adds an additional movement to the output.  Most units like this one just have a rotating lamp or lamps but this unit adds an additional side to side movement.  The result is up and down beams that also pivot side to side as well.  The unit will accept any line voltage linear lamp up to 1000 watts.  Currently there is a 220 volt, 750 watt lamp installed.  The fuse just needs to be adjusted accordingly for the type of lamp being used.  Since such high power lamp is used 2 cooling fans are installed that pull air in from the rear of the unit and force it out of the front.  The unit has on on board microphone for motion triggering but external control can be achieved through the 1/4" connection on the rear of the unit. Originally these had orange, yellow and green colors from the factory but over time they faded.  All that is left is amber.  Gels will correct the issue.  Great fixture made in Italy.

Sapro Color Wave



Another unique unit from Sapro.  This is the Color Wave unit that features a central 36 volt, 400 watt EVD lamp housed in the center of the unit.  The beams of light project from the 8 convex lenses located on the perimeter of the large round saucer.  Located around the saucer is a strange looking mesh grill.  This holds color gels and rotates to different positions to change from white to other colors that are attached to the grill.  Each arm has a round mirror with a Japan Servo Motor that moves the beam.  Each mirror is adjustable for a concentrated or wide rotating beam of light.  Unfortunately this unit arrived without the controller so a custom controller will need to be made or sound active PCB will need to be added.  Currently only the lamp relay is working (This uses the + and - terminals on the side of the unit).  The color wheel motor and 8 mirror motors run off the 5 pin MIDI cable.  If anyone has information on the controller or has a controller please reach out to me.  Fixture made in France.

f.a.l. Krokodile



Great unit from f.a.l.  This is the Krokodile unit that is very similar to a Lampo 'Derby' style unit but adds an additional movement to the output.  Most units like this one just have a rotating lamp or lamps but this unit adds an additional side to side movement.  The result is up and down beams that also pivot side to side as well.  The unit will accept any line voltage bulb with a GX 9.5 base.  Currently there are (2) 220 volt, 500 watt capsule lamps but bulbs up to 1,000 watts can be accepted including the Roundlux lamps.  The fuse just needs to be adjusted accordingly for the type of lamp being used.  Since such high power lamps can be used 2 cooling fans are installed that pull air in from the rear of the unit and force it out of the front.  The unit has on on board microphone for motion triggering but external control can be achieved through the 1/4" connection on the rear of the unit. Originally these had orange, yellow and green colors from the factory but over time they faded and went clear so gels were added to some of the lenses.  Great fixture made in Italy.
