Great for small band on tight budget. We use 6 light sets. 2 pointing at audience, 2 pointing at front musicians, one for drummer and one for percussionist. We mount them to our PA speaker stands. Best you can but for the price. Buy extra bulbd though...they break easy.

As soon as I got this unit I tried it in all its modes. Then I noticed that when attempting to lower its light scanning frequency with the timer knob, after the knob reached about 4/5 of its total excursion (CCW), which corresponded to about 2-3 seconds per light, the light scanning cycle, instead of continuing to slow down to 4, 7, 10 or whatever number of seconds per light, stopped and the last light that was on stayed on forever. I thought the unit was defective and MF kindly replaced it with another one. Unfortunately the second one did exactly the same thing, which tells me that this unit has very likely a design flaw. I wrote to Chauvet, but they never responded to me. So much for customer service! For the above reasons I gave this unit a low score. Otherwise, I like its compactness, portability, and light intensity (adequate for illuminating in colors my small playing space). In fact, if the timer had worked properly and consistently over the entire excursion of its knob, I would probably have given this unit an overall score of 9 to 10.

    This is a great DJ light, esp. for the price. Good workmanship. No plastic, all metal, bright finish. I had one a few years ago and never had any problems with it and used it a LOT.

    Comments about Chauvet Color Bank 4-Color Sound-Activated Light:

    I knew when I ordered them that I would need to rewire them to have the lights all on at the same time... no problem.. I use them every week at various jobs and they work very well... the bulbs to fade over several years of use ~ I have ordered replacements from MF and get them very quickly. They are a good light system at a great price.

        Comments about Chauvet Color Bank 4-Color Sound-Activated Light:

        light sent was used, very dusty and the lights had bad places in them. The control for the speed of the lights when turned only halfway, the light it was on would stay and not change, poor quality or a re-boxed return for this reason. The salesman told me the lights would all stay on if you just turned off the sequencing, there was no way to do that and you could not do it.
        Size was great if only they would have worked as expected and the unit was new it may have worked.
        Very poor purchase from MF, they usually are on top of things.

          15 minutes after turning on for the very first time, there was a noticeable smell as if something was burning. On top of that, about 3 days after I purchased it the "chase" is completely inop. Now it's just stuck on the blue light. Terrible product.

            Comments about Chauvet Color Bank 4-Color Sound-Activated Light:

            I use it as an uplight on the drums. The chrome and cymbals show the colors nicely. I set the speed to full ccw, and then bring the sensitivity up to step throgh the chase for kicks and hits. The trick is to not have the sense up too high. If it is, the lights will constantly chase at high speed, rather than in time. This is the caveat of these, as opposed to a remote (dmx) controlled lamp. If you need to tweak the sensitivity (as you certainly sometimes will), you have to get out there and do it at the light. I do generally shoot fog in from the side. This was the first effect I ever bought, and still find it invaluable. After dozens of shows, I haven't lost a bulb yet!

            As stated, good unit for the money. But why do the mounting holes NOT LINE UP with the bolts on a Chauvet light stand?? We had to drill new holes to make it work.

              Comments about Chauvet Color Bank 4-Color Sound-Activated Light:

              Four bulbs that do a chase pattern only. I was hoping to just be able to do a slow/medium chase pattern without sound activation. Speed knob is extremely sensitive, and chase pattern will not run at a steady rate. It will work well enough for my purposes, but has little versatility. If you need more control, I recommend a dmx unit.

                I've been using this light system for over 3 years.. I had to do some re-wiring to get the lights to stay on all the time without any effects. Perfect for a small to medium venue and have been real pleased with them. None better for this price. The only problem is getting replacement lights for them. I've ordered the replacement lights from MF on three occasions and have never received them where at least one light was broken in shipment. This week, I ordered 4 and all four were smashed when delivered by UPS. MF needs to check into better packaging for shipping replacement lamps... other than that.. EXELENT Light System.
