great lighting effect

By Richard Blake

Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

To all you band members out there thinking about making an investment in a light show I say do it.
It was the best money I ever spent.
for the price, the features of this light is remarkable. I use a DMX controller along with (3) of these light on a normal size bar stage along with a mini 4 bar and a stage 2 lighting system. It all fits great in all of the places we play. It sets up in less than 45 min. and adds so much to our show the DMX feature on the 4 play makes the selection of colors and pattern so easy a 5 yr old could run it. Great job on design and features.
Great quality I love the cases that come with the lights
Best investment I ever made in the band was to add a good light show. It instantly earned us another $100 a night wont take long to pay for themselves at this rate.

Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

We just received this last night and immediately threw it on our truss. WOW, what a killer light. The previous posters are correct, two of these would be killer. As it is, I am on the phone with M.F right now ordering a second. Sound activation is spot on. I would suggest checking Amazon.com to match the price and get it for 50.00 less. Buy this, you won't be disappointed. Check out the videos on Youtube to see it in action.

Review for 4play 6-channel LED lights

By Chad

from Ohio

See all my reviews

Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

I would buy these lights again. Set-up takes about 5min. Just tighten clams, plug in, and set mic vol. control knob. I use the auto mode. But can be ran from light bourd through DMX control as master or slave.
The only 2 things I didn't like are 1. the carring case will not zip all the way closed if you install 2 clamps for truss mount. But with 2 zippers you can close the case enough to still use.
2. the clams I bought were from the some company but I had to drill out the part of the clamp where the bolt head is inside the clamp. Bolts that come with clap are too short and have a smaller head on them then the bolts that come with the LED. It's a one time fix but you should set some time a side before your show to do this. Or use a tri-pod type of stand....no tools needed.
Very lite to move. Set-up is a snap. Able to use truss or tri pod stand. But to truss mount you need to order 2 clamps as they do not come with it.
Comes with carring case...very nice.
I've used these at a few gigs now and am very happy with them.
LED's are very bright and cut through the other can lights I use...par38 and par56 of which I use 4 of each with the 4-play mounted on top of the truss. As a mobile Dj these add a great effect to the show with all kinds of patterns and movement. If you add a little fog you can can see the beams of light from the side for even more effect. Aim at floor,walls or ceiling.
A great buy for the money.....LED's last 10,000 hours.

    I got more comments on this light than many other much more expensive solutions. It is amazing the effects if you position this behind a drummer. I am thinking of getting two more because I am so impressed.

    Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

    It's a great effect for the price. I already owned the Chavet 4 bar (which is fantastic) and I purchased the 4-play since it is easily added on the same tripod as the 4 bar. Unlike the 4-bar which has a controller (3 pedals...one for setting, one for music sync and one for "blackout"), the 4-play doesn't interface with the 4 bar control. I don't have DMX controller. Both the 4 bar & 4play are used in "auto" mode which is fine for our band. I just wish that we could blackout the 4play during breaks....currently, we disconnect the power.

    impressive show-maker

    By gunghoguitarist

    from texas

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

    We ordered this light to test on our band's stage lighting truss and it stole the show. The sound sensitivity is controllable enough that we can get just the right touch to follow bass lines - and the programming built into the unit does a great job of sensing crescendo and decrescendo in the music and adjusting accordingly. We've just started working with a pro-level DMX controller to program color and pattern changes and that's turning out to be pretty complicated for a guitar player and bass player, so some background in DMX and general lighting helps if you really want to get into what this system can do. The unit ships with a gig bag but you are going to want to be careful - its a soft bag with padding. There is a hole through the center which allows the unit to be mounted under a T bar in the middle of a stand if you want. For lighting the stage for a band, one of these is plenty, even though our initial reaction was "holy crap, look at that! let's go order another one!"

      4 Play is a great addition to my light show. Its a easy to set up, will mount on any speaker stand, can set it up under your speaker or just use a spare stand to set it up. All you have to do is plug it in and aim the indivual fixtures where you want them to go, covers the whole dance floor. Adds tons of movement to the dance floor. Highly recomend. Best light I've bought in a long time and for an unbelievable price.

      Great Product

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

      This is a great product for the price. I love the easy set up and take down. I DJ weddings and private parties and it works well for both. I have used it in large banquet rooms and it can help fill up the space.* I would recommend NOT purchasing this as the ONLY light source. It adds a nice touch but, I would recommend using it with other lights to help fill out the dance floor. I also use the DJ Bank by Chauvet which helps. Ideally I would love to add the Chauvet 4Bar. I definitely believe the 4Bar and 4Play would be all you need for a mobile DJ unit.

      Perfect Product for Small Venues

      By Jeromy73

      from Central Illinois

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

      We really do enjoy the product in our small club. The set up is easy and running two of them added a lot to our dance floor and stage. The only problem we had with the product is that with a smoke machine a haze built up inside the lense which is not removable for cleaning. Other than that small problem everything is great.

        Quick, convenient, light-weight. Adds lot of effect to a room & dance floor, even if it's just large, animated colored dots. Sets up below speakers on a stand shaft so they utilize space/resources well. Auto/ sound-activated programs work well enough if you don't use/have DMX. Designed to be quick, efficient, flexible and convenient---and they are. Six months so far and no problems or issues. The carry bag is not padded, so keep/use the styrofoam lens protectors. Definitely would replace if lost/stolen. Held back one star just because we only have had six months to judge their reliability.

        Comments about Chauvet 4PLAY 6-Channel LED Light Bar and Effects System:

        Have you ever been running late for a gig and you have to set up sound and lighting. Well the sound is more important so the first thing you do is get all that set up. Then you look at your watch and you think I'll never get all these lights set up? Well these are the way to go . You have 8 awesome lights going in minutes. Heck you can start your gig and then set the rest of your your lights up. I know because this happened to me at my last gig. They work great on a truss just be sure to order 2 o clamps per light. Get 2!

            Does exactly as advertised. Just used it this weekend. We played on a large stage, so I turned the outermost two lights towards the side walls and the two middle lights towards center stage for a great effect. Probably best for use by a DJ to keep the dance floor lit up but it worked well for our band. Pretty lightweight and very easy to set up. You should probably baby the carrying bag that it comes with but still a great value and a great addition to your light rig.

                  Simple to use... like the sound activation mode....just adjust the input level. Make sure the input level is low enough that the lights "dance to the music". If turned up to high lights just strobe and don't really add much to the show. I have been using the 4play for over two years and just bought a second set to add to the show. I use the 4play as accent lights along with four Intimidators "moving head" spots, two 4Bar Tri and two wash light. when used correctly they add nice movement to the show.
