          I'm a solo acoustic performer and needed a lightweight lighting package for playing at venues that didn't have any lighting. This package fit the bill perfectly. Everything fits in my small car along with all the other gear I use to play, and setup and breakdown is very easy.The stand is very sturdy. It came with an upper bar support, but it covered the mounting hole if extended all the way, or were fairly useless if they were in a position that not interfere with the lights (they were vertical). I removed it since the weight on the crossbar was not enough to really need it.The controller is a chase controller that does not support having all the lights on at the same time. I thought that that there would be an option to have all the lights on at once and there is none. The music I play is pretty laid back, so I don't want chasing--just all lights on at once. At this point, I'm not using the controller at all. Instead I am using a power strip mounted up at the top of the stand.All in all, a great package. A controller that allows all the lights to be on would be nice to have though.

          Once I got this working, it has performed well; but I will open with the issues for the sake of Caveat Emptor.

          1. No gels are included with this. You must purchase separately
          2. Tech support is minimal and not very knowledgeable.
          3. Chasing controller required modification and does not mount intuitively
          4. Packing for the stands was shoddy

          Stand arrived with a crash since the tape holding the box shut failed. I set this up in my garage to get familiar. Setup was easy, stands extend to a dizzying height.

          While the cans assemble to the tree easily, the controller does not and the instructions don't offer any suggestions. We improvised.

          The controller has three settings, slow chase, fast chase, or audio. The audio function did not work at all. I took the lights to a practice to make sure and the audio function still didn't work at all.

          Tech support was no help, so I opened the unit up and found the microphone surface had been sprayed (or oversprayed) with a black latex material. Using an exacto knife and a microscope, we carefully scraped the gunk off the mike. After that, the audio function worked perfectly. We've used it for two gigs so far and the lights dance in time with the beat.

          We are not a "light show" band, so we didn't require anything fancy. But if you are wanting something more elaborate, you might want to keep shopping.

          Comments about Elation PAR-38/T4 Lighting Package:

          Second set purchased by my band, use two for wider stages. Absolutely nothing bad about these. All 4 (or 8 as it were) bulbs came in good shape. Wish they came with a set or two of gels, and no T4 controller. T4 controller does function well, but not needed for our stage. Just steady lights.

          Good stand, decent PAR cans. The only complaints are the controller does not have an always on option and the package does not come with gels. Since they are incandescent they are hot but I am used to that anyway. All in all not bad for the price.

              Absolutely excellent for the cost. If you need affordable light, get these. They work great, are very tall and very stable legs/stand/T bar.

              The only drawback, if any-- T4 controller box: It works great but isn't needed in my band. I wish they sold a model with just four constant-on lights that join one plug. Maybe replace T4 with a couple sets of gels?

                Par cans apparently were damaged in shipment according to UPS website, no one called or emailed me, I had to call Musiciansfriend to reorder par cans... got the cans and one of the bulbs was shattered.. UPS sucks.

                      Comments about Elation PAR-38/T4 Lighting Package:

                      It isn't a high quality unit but then it isn't a high priced unit. For the price it's really good. The cord is too short for my taste so I changed it on mine. It works well though I would like more control over the lights. Only one light will shine at one time no matter what you do. I really should pick up another one but where I play there is usually only room for one.

                      Let's face it, if you're reading this, you need lights on a budget. This setup delivers great value and performance for a price that will make others wonder why they spent more. It's true that you may need to make a trip to the hardware store in order to set the lights up the way you want, but once it's up, man is it great!

                      I opened the boxes and put it together. No gels. No way to mount the controller. Cheap hardware and useless AC cords. The plastic height knob was broken. This thing was so bad I literally tossed it in a dumpster and just took the loss. It wasn't worth the hassle of packing it all back up and shipping it out. I was so disgusted at what cheap piece of junk this system is. If I were to set it up somewhere and leave it forever, it might be OK. But there's no way this toy was going to survive the 36 gigs a year we play. Very disappointed.

                      I just purchased this light package and turned around and ordered another one.I play in a three piece classic rock band and vocalist.Shipping was fast,no damage,easy to setup and does a great job at providing a small light show.Only drawback is minor,no fade or slider control.Customer service was excellent.
