Entertainment Installations’ Clay Paky inventory grows
Posted on Wednesday, January 13th, 2016
“We’d seen both of these fixtures a while ago on a trip to the Clay Paky factory in Italy and were very impressed with them, but decided to hold off on purchase until they started to appear on lighting specs / riders,” commented Neale Mace, managing director. “We’re now seeing them specified on many local and overseas gigs and tours, so we felt the time was right to get on-board with these new and popular fixtures.”
Neale remarked that the Stormy CC is an amazing RGBW LED strobe with a high output and great, saturated colours and with its “traditional” strobe look (not a block of LED’s), it looks great on a stage.
“We’d bought a few Stormy not long after their release for a permanent rental and have found them to be very reliable as well,” he added. “The great surprise is how well they also work as an RGBW LED Flood / Wash – we used them on a large carols event where they were used as a wash a lot of the time with great effect.
“We’re happy to see them going out on lots of shows and the lighting guys here now use them as their first choice for strobes.”
“It’s a wash light, spot light, beam light and FX light and has so much output, great colours and can be used on the biggest shows we do,” he said. “As with the Stormy, we’re now seeing the Mythos all over specs and riders and to expand our current lighting inventory, they are the right choice for us.”
Since they’ve been delivered, Entertainment Installations’ Mythos have been out on several shows and events with great success and according to Neale, look like another successful fixture from Clay Paky.
