I have six of these mounted on a tripod stand. I leave them on the cross bar, four below....two above...which makes set up quite fast and easy. I use colored flood light bulbs in them so I don't have to mess with the gel frames and gels which can easily be damaged in transport. I play solo and this one stand is plenty for my purposes. Much easier to transport and set up and also brighter than the Chauvet LED system I also have which involves two stands, cables, controller, etc.

For the price these are great lights. I needed some extra lights to add to our truss system. Used with a chaser they operate as intended. They come with the bulb already installed but inadequate packaging that doesn't withstand the "shotput" deliver method of UPS. Ordered four and two bulbs were broken.

OK for the Money

By Albert Coffman

from Perkasie, PA 18944

Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

I rate the American DJ PAR-38B can fairly high on value, due to the price, although if you want to bring the wiring up to code, you might do just as well to invest in a higher-priced unit. I haven't tried any others, so I can't make specific recommendations. For my limited purposes, it will do the job, once I replace the lamps. I couldn't believe the bulbs were as bad as some others have said until I lit one up. The bulbs are absolutely unusable - junk. At least decent replacement bulbs are widely available and affordable.
I was disappointed to find that the cord is neither grounded nor polarized. The label on the case says this device should be grounded, but that's left up to the user. That said, it's not a big deal to replace the cord or be sure to have a GFCI if you use it outdoors or near grounded objects. Or clamp it to a grounded frame.
Reasonably solid construction and mates up well with the Chauvet CH03 C-clamps I purchased. Disappointed to find that it's not UL listed, probably due to the inadequate cord.
It's a good deal for the price, although the bulb they supply is totally worthless, as others have mentioned.

Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

I bought six of these lights the first round two came with broken bulbs (the most expensive part of the light). So i called and complained and they agreed to send me two more lights so that i would have the six i ordered. When the replacements get here i didnt even have to open the shipping box to hear the broken glass rattling around inside. So again i call rather angry this time, again they say ok well we will ship you two more. I proceeded to tell the gentleman dont even bother unless they packaged them differently this time. He assured me he would have them special packaged. When they arrived they were all intact.

Buy them.
I have had nothing but a positive experience with these things and have now bought 3 sets of them. I use them weekly and they have held up like little champs.

Durable as heck and with the right gels, they're pefect for most any stage. I highly recommend them.
All metal body. Solid.
Awesome.

Great Wash for Low Cash

By DJ Kenny

Ask me a question

Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

These are the only pars I ever use.
I have purchased about 40 of these over the past 10 years. I am a DJ, Guitar Player, Singer & karaoke Host. These lights are sold in music, sound & lighting stores for this price. Here you can get 2 of them for that price. I don't use the gel frames that come with them. I have tried using gels but don't seem to get much color out of them. I replace the bulbs that are included with these with outdoor colored 150 watt spotlights of red, green, blue & yellow. I also use a T4 Chaser on sound active to change the colors. Take good care of these & they will last forever. I still have all of the first ones I bought 10 years ago.
Great quality for the money.
Best deal I've ever found on pars.

Simple. Terrible bulbs.

By Matt Crigger

from Michigan

Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

Simple. Sturdy. Metal. With new bulbs they are rather nice.
Simple. And easy. Plug 'em in. *bing*!
The lights are decent. The bulbs they come with are abismal! Seriously, run to Lowes/Home Depot and get some Par38 flood lights. It's worth the $7-8 per lamp. The wash is a million times better! No more marbling of light. It was like a bad flashlight bulb. They add more weight, but it totally worth it.
You get what you pay for, but replace the Par38 flood bulbs - first thing. Don't even plug in the others.

PAR-38B

Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

Basic can for DJ and some uplighting applications. the fact that you get a bulb with it is a bonus. Get four and your good to go.
Basic can with a good gel frame. you get a bulb with it also.
Pretty darn good with nice gel frames.
Looked around for better value. Found a feww with the same specs but MF had the best price.

    They came with new 150 Watt incandescents.
    I put 26 Watt LED bubls in them and WOW!
    At the price, considering the 150 watt bulb come with them...
    They're a great inexpensive way to start a lighting system.
    Just buy some gels and a basic controller and you're set.

            from Henniker, NH

            Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

            Have four of these lights that we take around to all our local shows, and they work great! We hook them up to an American DJ PC-4, and have a friend flash them while we are playing. The effect adds a lot to our performance, and I've never regretted buying them. Great value for lights that get the job done in small to medium venues.

            For the price, you cant beat this deal. They are bright enough for small to medium venues. If you are looking to light the stage area in these sized venues, better order a couple sets.

            Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

            These were absolutely great for the money - solid, clean, nice tight gel frames. I put 90 watt spots in them (they came with 150 w. floods even though the description didn't say so) and they did a great job lighting up one or two performers about 15 feet away. Perfect for small stage. Don't forget the clamps.

            By Papa Smurff

            from Eastern Shore, MD

            Comments about American DJ PAR-38B Can Buy Two and Save:

            Bought 2 sets of these to replace big set up of lights burned up with all my other equipment in a fire. I used to do an occassional DJ job but never used an elaborate light show, so figured I would try one set. Bought the second after I checked out the first ones and then bought the gels. I bought a pretty nice stand for them and tried them out for Halloween (we always put on a pretty good show since we have about 400-500 kids each year). I like that I can use these independently (hang on tree limbs outside and hot water pipes inside when he have a party and set up the Karaoke machine). But the greatest thing is the new CFL spots and even better, the higher watt, low power consumstion/no heat LED spots! I first found some theat didn't have alot of power at WALMART and tried those. Gave a nice warm light with the gels but recently found some LED spots at Home Depot that were equal to 65 and 90 watt spot and WOW! Used thos on Halloween to highlight trees (with the gels) and were fantastic and NO HEAT! Also, the LED's are in solid constructed shells so don't have to worry about one breaking on the way to your gig and no more sweating from the heat or having to unplug and cool down before packing! Buy these a couple at a time and the bulbs a couple at a time (The LED's are not cheap by any means but make this system well worth it)!
