Satel Kum / Gemini Unit Chrome Version

This is the larger of the 2 Kum units made by Satel. This is the Kum (Full Size - Chrome Version) light effect.  Satel  also made a smaller unit named the Baby Kum which has a single head and a central 150 watt light source. This unit features 20 - 12 volt, 35 watt AR111 PAR 36 lamps (10 on each side). You can also use standard glass 12 volt, 30 watt sealed beam lamps, but I prefer the AR111 lamps because they are lighter and have a much longer life expectancy. The unit is comprised of the large light unit and a dedicated controller. The controller features a switch to turn on the lamps, the AC motor (Which spins the 2 heads in opposite directions) and the DC motor (Which controls the main rotation of the entire unit). The DC motor also has a speed adjustment know so you can control how fast the main unit rotates. Both motors are very high quality and made from Crouzet of France. These units were available in black and chrome originally when manufactured.  I have another unit that was originally chrome but was in really bad condition when it arrived so that one was refinished to black.  Here is a link to that unit:  Satel Kum - Black Version  I am happy to have this chrome version as it is hard to find one of these that has survived from the 80's and still looks good.  Unit made in Spain.

Sapro Magic-3

Another unit from the Magic Series from Sapro.  This is the Magic 3 unit that features a single linear 120 volt, 500 watt FCL bulb that rotates 360 degrees at 20 RPM.  The rotation motor is a super high quality Crouzet motor from France.  This produces 9 large flat 'fan' style beams of light that twist and spin in the air.  The unit comes white but can be colored with the included gels.  The fixture has separate circuits for the motor, lamp and fan.  The Magic series consists of the 1, 2, 3 and 4.  1 and 2 are static and 3 and 4 add motion.  Each number also corresponds to the amount of lenses on the front of the units.  Great light made in France.

Meteor HA 360 Moonflower Units

This is a collection of Meteor Moonflower HA 360 effects.  Each unit features a 82 volt, 360 watt EYB lamp mounted in the center of the chassis.  Behind the lamp is a very large convex mirrored dish that is attached to a motor assembly.  The large dish rotates clockwise and counter-clockwise creating a ton of thin beams that project from the front of the unit.  In addition the dish has a spring in the assembly so as it rotates it shakes a little making a unique effect.  Located on the front of the unit is a separate motor where an optional color wheel can be attached.  The large color wheel changes the beams colors slowly as it rotates.  Each unit is triggered from a dedicated wired remote control (RAM-20).  The controller can adjust speed, sound responsiveness and direction.  These have a bit of a strange chassis but built solid.  Great units made here in the USA.
