Overall good value, some tweaking possibly required
Bought two of these, they are well built. One thing that surprised me is that there is no way to use them without the effects (sound or cycling strobe) I had to rewire a little to get all four lamps in the unit to just come on and stay on. Very easy if you're into that. I had some similar units that used colored bulbs like this, and the color on the surface of the bulbs ended up burning off and thinning over time, to a too-bright white. It was hard to find those particular replacement lamps. I expect this to happen with these, and it appears that replacement lamps seem readily available. I'll probably end up rigging up some kind of gel frame to hang in front of the lamps, once again easy to do with these units.

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.

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

    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.

      First of all thanks to musicians friends for replacing all my burned out bulbs. My chauvet light system has burned out 4 blue bulbs and I can't figure out why but thanks to musicians friends for helping me with this problem.

        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.
