Entertainment Installations expand with Martin MAC101 LED wash lights
Posted on Wednesday, May 25th, 2011
As part of their constant equipment upgrading, Entertainment Installations has recently invested in more of the latest Martin LED lighting.
They already own twenty-eight Martin MAC301 LED wash lights which – according to managing director Neale Mace – are in constant demand for their tours and shows as well as sub-hires to other lighting companies.
“To keep up with the demand for them we have just purchased another four to make total of thirty-two MAC301 in our inventory,” commented Neale.
Recently, Neale had a look at the new Martin MAC101 LED wash light and he was left extremely impressed – impressed enough to order twenty-four of them and put them straight to work on the John Butler tour.
“Initially I was a bit skeptical as they seemed so small and light in fact they seemed like a ‘toy’ light,” he said. “However I was wrong! You get such a lot of light from such a little fixture! They only weigh 3.7kg – you can pick them up with your finger – and they’re almost ‘moving mirror’ fast.”
As well as being remarkably small and super light, the MAC101 features a tight and very bright beam, rapid movement and calibrated colours with a low price tag that allows for revolutionary set, stage and decorative lighting designs.
Bryce Mace was the lighting designer for these John Butler dates and he put together a show using sixteen MAC101, six MAC301, eight Martin StageBar54S, six Martin TW1 wash, twenty-four Kupo MultiPar NSP and some blinders.
The show, controlled by a grandMA2 Lite + wing, featured some interesting looks with the 101’s and MultiPars on truss uprights and dropper bars.
