Background: I've been in and around the lighting and maser world for about 15 years and cut my teeth on intellabeams. Recently, I have been working for a laser company and realized that I miss intelligent lights and have to do something about it. So, I'd like to build a little budget rig for use at clubs and other electronic music events. Emphasis will be on live shows. The budget is about $4k. I plan on borrowing the truss, cable, and possibly the controller if I can't find a decent or cheap one. So about $4k for fixtures. I already have a couple of af1000 data flashes and a controller as well as some coemar wash. I could get 8 trackspots (or more), 4 technobeams, or a couple of Martin mac 250s and maybe some technobeams or trackspots to add to it. It would probably be trackspot 1s, as I can't seem to find any deals on trackspot 2s. The benefit of the trackspots is that lamps are cheap, they take up little room, they're extremely durable, and I know them better than any other fixture, but they're pretty boring compared to the other fixtures. Prices I've discovered so far: Trackspots: approx $400-$450 Technobeams: $900-$1k w/o iris Mac 250s - $800-$1100 Any advice on what I should go with or where I should look for good deals on used lights? Or, in the alternative, is anybody selling any of these fixtures or comparable fixtures? Durability is pretty important, so I don't think i can consider anybody but Martin and High End at this price range.
