LED STAGE LIGHTING FIXTURES /
PAR 64, PAR 56 & PAR 38 CANS

 

Par 64, Par 56 & Par 36 Stage Lights and Pin-spots utilizing LED's and DMX.

 


LED lighting fixtures have MANY advantages over their 'incandescent / halogen' counterparts. While they may SEEM expensive on the 'front end', it doesn't take much 'math' to figure out they become way less expensive to own fairly quickly. One great thing about LED fixtures, is that they use only a SMALL FRACTION of electricity, compared with their 'incandescent' counterparts, thus not only do they generate far less heat, but save considerably on your electric bill. Another great advantage is that they have a 50,000-100,000 + hour life span, so the days of replacing 'Halogen' / Sealed beam Par / stage light bulbs at $25-$100 each, every 600-2000 hours are gone! Imagine the savings in electricity & lamp replacement costs if you have lighting systems consisting of 12-100 fixtures (don't forget the extra air conditioning costs to offset each fixtures 90-1000 watts of heat).
Yes, I know that LED fixtures do not have quite the candle power / brightness of traditional stage light bulbs, and there may be situations calling for longer 'throws' or simply the most candle power possible that may mean LED fixtures (under $300) will not be the best choice. For those situations you should probably stick with standard 'incandescent / sealed beam' bulb technology. However, if you're like me and play smaller stages / venues, or are a DJ with a dance floor smaller than 30' x 30', or a small stage diner theater they will likely work well enough that their other advantages will justify their slightly less candlepower.
I have dealt with traditional stage light fixtures for years both as a musician and as a system designer / installer and have been anticipating this technology for a long time. I won't miss the heat from the lamps outrunning the venue's air conditioner, or the electric meter in my personal 'garage band' space spinning at light speed, or spending $50 every time one of my fixtures get's 'bumped' during set up / tear down and takes out a bulb filament.

 

For assistance in choosing the correct fixture, review the following.
PAR 64 - These are the largest of the common 'Par' cans found in stage lighting. Generally best for the largest of stages where there is trussing or a lighting grid that is 8-20' above the talent / subject. These cans are large, so if you have a typical 'bar' stage or small 300 seat or smaller venue, they will likely be 'overkill' both in lumens and
 

 in physical size. You simply need a LARGE space for them to be justified for most applications. In 20 years, I would have to think hard the last time I sold any Par 64 fixtures to your typical 'weekend warrior' or semi-pro / bar band.

PAR 56 - Slightly smaller than the Par 64 and more common in the medium to medium-large stage's. Bridges the gap for medium to large bands / acts between Par 38 and Par 64. Still, probably overkill for most medium size stages or venues under 250 capacity.

PAR 38 - Great for shorter throws of 3-12 feet away from the 'talent', typical 'bar' stages / venues of less than 200 capacity and for smaller group settings. Certainly most small bar / venue / coffee shop / restaurant gigs are going to be best served with Par 38 fixtures. This is my personal favorite size for most of the gigs I have played, especially when mixed with some Par 36 'Pin Spots' for 'back lighting'. You can pack more of them in smaller spaces both at the gig and loaded on the truck. It's also easier to lift a 'rack' of them as they weigh less.

At this point we do not have any quality light stands currently available to us.
For smaller groups / DJ's, my personal favorite was always 'Ultimate' brand stands and fittings. There were other brands that had 'cool' looking, pre-assembled trusses, but their fittings were not quality and either would not 'hold' position and or would often break. I built many systems using Ultimate's  TS-33 stands, with extensions and their 'bulk / heavy wall' tubing as trussing. Their 'heavy wall' tubing can be drilled, and outfitted with pre-assembled bolts from the hardware store. Eye bolts in the ends are handy for hanging them for storage with carabineers in a garage or camper shell or box truck. I used 5/16' 'all thread' thru the aluminum tubing with lock washers / nuts on each side of the tubing. Leaving about 1" of 'all thread' exposed on each side allows fixtures to be mounted on the top and bottom of the tubing.
Above all, no matter how you mount your lighting fixtures, remember you are responsible for the safety of any one who might be endangered by the equipment hanging over their heads. Never 'overload' your system design limits in weight or AC current / heat output. Always 'over engineer' every aspect / part of the structure components. Use safety cables / mechanisms appropriately and liberally. Verify the integrity of mounting / anchor points. Verify and understand the current limits of your AC system
(again with LED fixtures, this becomes much less of an issue).
