Starlight 12 Lamp Harvesters

Some great units from Starlight.  These are 12 lamp harvester units which feature (12) 6 volt, 30 watt GE 4515 lamps mounted 90 degrees from each other on a common axis.  These units feature the LED lamp indicators which are common on Starlight units instead of the traditional neon indicators.  The lamps have an external transformer to drop the voltage to 70 volts AC.  The units were originally set for 240 volt operation as they were shipped from the UK to the US.  I am switching out the lamps to 12 volt bulbs to eliminate the external transformer.  The motor will not be changed but rather a simple step up transformer will be added for operation.  Great units built solid!

Meteor Multiray Units

Some classic projectors from Meteor!  These are the Multiray units.  Each unit originally featured an 82 volt, 250 watt lamp but the lamps are no longer produced.  These will be converted to line voltage 120 volt, 150 watt FEC lamps.  The large diode on the rear of the unit will be removed as the voltage will no longer have to be reduced.  The light bounces off of the rear dichoric colored dish and then out of the front focusing convex lens making a bunch of small colored beams.  The units are static projectors which means there is no movement – these look great in fog on a chaser.  I am looking for a 4th unit so if anyone happens to have one they would like to part with please contact me.  Units made here in the US!

American DJ Aftershock

Giant classic unit from American DJ!  This is the Aftershock unit.  The unit features a super powerful 36 volt, 400 watt EVD lamp placed in front of a constantly rotating dichoric color wheel.  The colored beams shoot through a convex lens then onto a sound active vibrating mirror.  The effect is multi-colored beams spinning and shaking at a very fast pace.  It is a very high energy unit.  The microphone and sensitivity knob are located on the bottom of the unit along with the power input.  The safety cage around the mirror is to prevent anything / anyone from possibly interfering with the mirror movement.  This was an early American DJ unit so it is built like a tank and features an extruded aluminum chassis.  Fixture made in Taiwan.
