This is my first "professional" lighting system, though I have foot-lighting I sometimes use to back-wash a stage. As a jazz musician I have less need for full-featured lighting, but I needed a professional looking system for a high-end engagement.The Chauvet Par 38 System provides the features I need. Since I don't require fancy chase features, the 16 pre-programmed audio activated feature is more than adequate. The "full on"/ "black=out" foot pedal allows me to control the lights from my stage position. The cans and stand look great and including the gels is a major convenience.Documentation is poor, and since this was my first system of this type, I found I wasted a lot of time in my first set-up. I discovered that the stand's top section had to be almost fully extended before the second section cotter pins could be used. It also took me a while to figure out the toggle sequence between full on and chase from the footswitch. Indeed, the footswitch appears to be the only way to bring the lights full on. I found that mounting the controller after the can placement works wellI recommend this system for those who need basic lighting that looks professional.

After reading the reviews I knew the purchase was going to be a gamble. Out of the box the light sockets were loose and the controller did not work. I tightened all the hardware, took a look inside the controller and found wiring not soldered. Works now. So.....I bought another set knowing what to look for. Next set all hardware loose, and top T bracket welds were broken. Two cans were bent up in shipping. Again fixed them myself. Linked them together and they work like they are suppose to. Overall, a good buy if you realize you will be tuning them up yourself or sending back bad parts. Build a travel box they will not last unprotected.

I have only come across 1 problem. You are on your own. No instructions on the 16 different settings and I am still trying to figure out the sequence of the foot switch to get them in sink while we are playing. Overall they work well for small shows. Don't forget the linking cable to connect the 2 control boxes if 2 get more than 1 set.
My brother and I just used this lighting unit for a wedding gig with about 300 people. I'm not gonna lie it was sweet! The best bang for your buck by far. The patterns are great and the system is better than I expected. It added a great new element to the dance floor. Worth every penny.
as far as Im conserned this is the best set you sell for the money, I may even get another set in the future. for the $$$ even if you only need parts of the set tou cant go wrong !!!!
Just got these in and set them up last night. I was very impressed. I was not expecting what I got. For the money I can't think of a better deal. I am waiting on the linking cable, but the foot switch works perfect also. I suggest this product for anyone who is needing a light show and is on a budget or just needs a kit to ad to a lightshow they already have.
Well, my band just bought our second set and we couldn't be happier with what we got for the money spent. We also bought the linking cable to run between two light trees. With the the linking cable, one click of a single foot switch and the whole stage goes dark for a dramatic effect. This is a sweet frickin deal for anyone looking to not spend a bundle on a lighting system. Get your's today!
What a great product. I picked these up yesterday & went straight to a gig. They were very easy to set up, easy to use, and I believe took the band to the next level. We played outdoors between dusk & into the night & these gave us a great look. I highly recomend these to any gigging band or DJ.
I got the lights in and unpacked them. I set them up in about 15 minutes. I set them up in my front room by the stereo, I turned them on and they work great just with the stereo, Can't wait till we use them at a gig. My buddy bought a pair also and for the price we think we got a good deal.They will add alot to our performances.
My band looks to me to pick out our gear & we needed lights. I've ALWAYS had a "you get what you pay for" kinda mindset my whole life & when I saw this I wasn't sure what to think of it because of the low price. But I figured if we get them and they're junk we can send them back or find some high school kids willing to buy them.When the package came I put them together and was really surprised at how well they worked. Sure they were a little flimsy, but we've taken care of them and have had no problems. In fact, we are going to get another set and the linking cable.
I bought these lights 3 years ago. They still work, more or less, after about 30 shows, but they are starting to show some wear. One light stopped working altogether. The features have held up. I am careful not to bang them around too much. Some of the wiring is starting to come out of the back of the cans since the plastic piece holding the wiring in is cheap. Overall I agree that they are good for the "1-2 gigs/month" band. Lights make you look a lot more professional, especially at weddings and corporate functions.
I bought this light set about 3 years ago and they work great for what you pay. I use them in a practice room and do not travel with them, so a setup like this is perfect for my application.
