One of the main drawbacks in traditional lighting for concerts is the fact that those brightly colored spots, strobes and other special lighting effects produced a lot of heat, and consumed even more energy. With the arrival of LED lights for concerts both those problems can be set aside. LED lights for concerts are actually cool, they use less than half the energy of traditional lighting and they come in more vibrant colors.
American DJ Par Can Spots
The problem with par can spots has always been the amount of heat they generate. Although they can light up the stage and follow performers as they move about, LED American Pro lights can do the same thing with virtually no heat. As a matter of fact, audiences seem to like the lighting effect even better. The advantage goes far beyond heat, however. They have a tremendously long life, being rated at 100,000 hours and each and every one of those hours at a very low rate of energy consumption. Believe it or not, all that luminance is only consuming 25 watts per light! They are known for smooth RGB color mixing and can create an amazing strobe effect. No one could ask for anything more from a concert light.
American DJ Strips and Beacons
Another popular series of LED lights for concerts is the American DJ Accent Strip. They are manufactured with double backed tape so that they can be attached to literally anything on the set from instruments to speakers and even mic stands. This particular brand comes in 7 different colors and the have three modes of operation. DJ Strips are rated at 50,000 hours and they also produce very little heat and use minimal power. DJ Beacons are a favorite among LED lights for concerts because they also have a very long life expectancy of 50,000 hours and are light weight, weighing only a pound and a half. They rotate at 7 different speeds and come with three mounting plates. DJ Beacon lights come in 56 Blue as the color of choice.
Because LED lights for concerts have overcome the two greatest obstacles in stage lighting, heat and power consumption, better lighting is now available for clubs and groups that are just beginning to hit the circuit. The expense is minimal, the lamps are sturdy and they give off colors that enthrall audiences. Whether the LEDs are used as spots or for special effects, they are on the cutting edge of concert lighting systems.
