    So I've been a fan of putting a double cut of R15 in fixtures for a while, and I used just that in my light show last year, and use it when doing small gigs. What I'd like to know is what you think the closest match do a double cut of R15 is in Rosco, in Lee, and in Gam. So grab 2 cuts of R15 (or destroy two swatchbooks if you have enough to do so...), and see what you think the closest match is for a single cut in Rosco, Lee, and in Gam. I'd much rather be able to specify single cuts instead of this double cut business (however sweet it may look).

    Good question. IF you find out let me know.

    You must be one of those rich kids who can go spending double on your color order. What a hideous color! You obviously have a sunset in every show you do. The closest I could come to R15x2 is L104x2; not much help I know, sorry. Did you try the Apollo line? I hear they make gels too.

    No, I just happen to have extra in the gel folders. Everything else is always single cuts.

    I almost always use it in my light shows and small concerts that I do. Goes well with R39 and with R95.

    To be really obnoxious, I think you should specify R15+L104!

    I cut my own gel, especially for these shows, so that'd be a resounding no.

    Are you allowed to do that? Isn't that like, interracial genetic cross breeding? Won't we get in trouble with PETA or Focus on the Family or something?

    Ninety percent of the corporate shows I do specify L201+R132 (or R119) in all SourceFours. I'm not aware of any law, yet, that requires keeping the color line "pure," which could lead to inbreeding and extra fingers.

    But that is color and diffusion, thats a completely different type of matter all together now.

    In an attempt to waste time, I mean, er bond with my new Lee swatchbook, I rummaged and found:
    L179 ("Chrome Orange") though
    L020 ("Medium Amber") and
    L770 ("Burnt Yellow") are closer in saturation, the last two are more muddy.

    I'll get back to you on AP gel colors when I find that swatchbook if you're still interested. (I packed it in my bag at the beginning of the week, but took it out for strike, and forgot it somewhere around here. Maybe I'll have to order a new one and get more gum? ;) Kidding.)

    L179 is the closest one that I've found in the past, but could be a tad bit more saturated, but not by much! It's incredibly close. I was wondering if anyone else would come up with that. 20 (L or R) is a bit too far off, though.
