        The Followspot 400G is a mobile, lightweight, and versatile lighting fixture for its price. Besides the array of colors it projects, the gobo function saves you from buying or hauling an additional piece of equipment. It is easily mounting on a speaker stand as well. Buy the On Stage speaker mounting bracket, found under the mic accessories section for some reason. You will also need an extension cord, which is common for most lighting fixtures you purchase. The focus is manuel and simple to use. The colors change with the push of a button as well as bright/dim, DMX, Manual, and Master slave functions. It is simple to get up and running right out of the box.
        For the price, the quality is less than none. Nobody price came close to their deal.

        I purchased a Chauvet followspot and plugged it in. When I turned it on it flashed once then burned out. I sent it back for another. I tested it once and it came on. When I powered it off that was it...no more followspot. They are junk.

            I had been renting a lesser spot for a c-note each year for our church's program... Under two-hundred? Really? Pays for itself next year with only two hours of work! But besides that, here's what I found:

            Easily operated. Works efficiently. Replacement lamp found locally for six greenbacks! (Did NOT burn out quickly though as others had said. Just bought an extra "in case". Used it a few times an hour a pop and it's fine).

            The only thing I didn't like was that there were no instructions about putting it on the speaker stand adapter... I mean, it's on there, but it doesn't look like it's really designed for THAT light. Yet, it works, so, cool!

            Only used manually, have not used with DMX, but man, for the price - you get digitally controlled colors, etc.... GREAT LIGHT! GET IT!

            Followspot 400G

            By Floyd Stough

            from Texas

            Comments about Chauvet Followspot 400G:

            A good tool for the price.
            For a small venu show the Followspot 400 by Chauvet is outstanding. The Manual Focus is not smooth and could be improved by using teflon guides on the rail opposite the adjusting handle but for the price it is an outstanding value.
            The DMX system provides color and fade adjustments but all focus and iris adjustments are manual which precludes using the light with programing for multiple performers. I also found the mounting bracket does not mate with OEM brackets. I purchased a wheel bearing and mounted it between the Followspot 400 mounting and the stand and this improved the pan capability tremendously at a cost of about $7.00.
            I use the spotlight for a small show where I am less than 300 feet from the stage and it is ideal for this application. There is nothing on the market that can beat the price for this application.

            Just what I needed

            By Robert Cates

            from Sunny Florida

            Comments about Chauvet Followspot 400G:

            I've added this spot to my light system, (I do a singles acoustic and often a full 1 man band scenario, so do not need a full time sound/light person) This unit works great for this application. I've added programming for it through DMX, so it works automatically in conjuction with the rest of my lights, and is easily set up. Colors are very nice and it is more than bright enough.
            Be VERY carefull not to sharply bump this unit when on, as the bulb is VERY sensitive, and jarring th unit will cause the filament to seperate.I highly recommend getting extra bulbs, which are very reasonably priced on the web. Contruction is good and controls well placed,however the "focus" handles/adjustments could use some inprovement, as operation is not as smooth as i would like, but then I only need to adjust them once for each gig, so it's not a show stopper form me.
            For my "set it and forget it" DMX application, this unit is great. I can't say how it would hold up under "manned" coditions.
            Everything you could want in a follow spot
            As noted below, very good save for the handles
            stupid deal made this a no brainer

            Not a high end spotlight but not a high end price either. I would recommend this product for a short throw spotlight.
            Received this for an upcoming show. Does everything I need. Love the simple to operate features and the fact that it has built in DMX controlling makes it just that much easier.
            A little light weight on the focus slides but still ok.
            Great value for the money.

            This spotlight is AMAZING!!! I love it! But, when when I bought it, the blub didn't work. I had to buy a new bulb. Other than that, PERFECT!

            Comments about Chauvet Followspot 400G:

            I've used many follow spot lights over the years...from mini troopers to gladiators. I needed a small portable follow spot for use with a small community musical theater foundation. I decided on this one because it has a DMX dimmer. My follow spot operators are volunteers and typically have never run a spotlight so I figured setting it up for 'point-n-shoot' for the operator and I'd turn it on and off via my DMX lighting controller. It's also nice that the color wheel can also be controlled by a 2nd DMX channel. The light output is equivalent to a mini trooper...1kw with 40'-120' throw. But it only uses half the power as a 1kw lamp. it's much smaller and lighter than typical 1kw fixtures.

            This is the best follow spot I own! It's as bright as a 200lb commet pro spot! It's light weight, very portable. It produces a bright pure white light. The colors are also great! I love the DMX control. The simple push button manuel operation is fantastic! Plain and simple, this is a GREAT LIGHT! I plan on getting a second very soon!
