      OVERVIEW

      A complete setup of stage lighting equipment for a price that can't be beat.

      The stage lighting system includes 8 PAR 38B cans, 2 Odyssey LT-P2 tripod lighting stands, Chauvet SF-9005 timer controller, and 2 Chauvet SR-8 relay packs.

      Par 38B cans
      Each PAR can features a medium screw-base socket with a power cord and gel frame than can be used with any medium screw-base 110V lamp (sold separately.)

      Odyssey LT-P2 tripod lighting stands
      Black aluminum stands with T bars extend to 12'.

      Chauvet SF-9005 Timer Controller
      This full-featured controller includes 8 on/off/chase switches, 2 chase options: 16 patterns sound-activation or timed chase 20sec - 15min, 16 patterns of sound activation, plus fog and strobe controllers. 25' cable.

      SR-8 Relay Packs
      Feature 8 switched power sockets that correspond to channel 1-8 on the multifunction switch panel and one unswitched power socket for constant on item.

      What is a Relay Pack?
      Relays allow you to control non-DMX lighting via a DMX controller. The relay pack contains multiple plugs, each of which correspond to a channel of DMX. When units are plugged into this relay pack, they become dependent upon the relay for power. These lights are either "on" or "off." The function of the relay is to control that signal. As the slider of a DMX controller is raised, a certain value will represent "on" for the relay pack, which will cause the light to turn on.

      How To Use 2 Relay Packs with the SF-9005 Timer Controller:
      Two SR-8 relay packs may be run off one multifunction switch panel. Simply connect an SF-EXCB 9-pin extension cable from the "line out" on one SR-8 relay pack to the "line in" on another relay pack.

      ** Please note maximum load per relay pack is 15 amps or 1800 watts.

          Despite a couple of minor issues this lighting system is very nice and a great value. I would definitely recommend this product to a gigging band or DJ or one just starting out because of its price and ability to be upgraded and/or expanded. Just remember extra 9 pin cables, bulbs, and gels.
          I liked most of the features very much. Especailly the tall heavy duty stands. But the cords on the back of the cans are kind of short so they don't reach the ground to the relay packs. One reviewer suggested buying black lamp cord and making them longer yourself. But I just zip tied the relay packs to the center of the cross bars on top of the light stands through the mounting holes on each side of the relay packs. It actually cleaned up the look of of the light stands considerably. The only cords hanging down are the power cord for the relay pack and the 9 pin cables. If you use this method I would definately buy a couple of extra 9 pin cables. Also the rate adjustment for the auto chase setting on the mixer is useless. On the fastest setting it's still painfully slow. The only thing that saves it is the sound setting that changes the light scenes to the music. And why didn't they throw in a couple of 4 packs of gels?
          It seems well made. But one of my bulbs arrived inoperable and another puked out shortly there after. Luckily you can buy new bulbs at the hardware store for relatively little money. Keep extras on hand.
          The value is very good. For what you pay you get a lot. If you need more lights this system allows you to expand or upgrade to even better lights later. It's a great starter pack.

          I ordered this and it wa delivered in a timely manner, however the light controller never worked properly... I sent it back to musiciansfriend and they sent me another light mixer and it doesn't work properly either. The lighting works great, the light controller does not... Both of the controllers I had either acted like they had a short in them or just stayed on full time. It would let me just set it to the wash I wanted like all blue or red or green or yellow... Musiciansfriends would not fix this problem... So I now have 8 lights on trees and NO controller.

            I bought some fiber washers to add to the bolts while attaching the lights to the bar. Tie wrapped the power supply to the bar and dressed in the light cables the whole look is clean and neat. Lights are well made. I am still trying to find a frame to hold the gels to slide under the springs on the lights. Stands are super strong and can extend to a perfect height. The controller is so easy to set up and use. I have a stobe connected to the bar as well and will use a fog machine with the light's I am happy with the purchase

              Lighting system was exactly what we needed! Lights are bright and durable, Oddysey stand is very well made. It sure to stand some abuse. The only issue I had with the system was the Chauvet Timer system. When you have things like the Elation T4 chaser system that's so compact and easy to take along, unless you have a dedictaed light man, the Chauvet timer system, the relay packs and the serial extension cords are a hassle. I would highly suggest musicians friend replace the Chauvet system with the Elation T4 chaser. Otherwise I would definately purchase more of these and recommend other people buy them as well.

              This was an overall fantastic purchase for me and my band and we couldn't be happier with the results that we got with this product. I would recommend it to anyone looking to add a little more flash to your setup for not much cash!
              This is a great starter kit at a fantastic price. We used for the first time and were just amazed with the lighting system itself.
              Everything in this pack seems to be of great quality from the par cans all the way down to the stands that a very heavy duty.
              GREAT PRICE!!!!!! I couldn't find anybody in the area that could even come close to the price Musicians Friend has.

              I bought this Stage Lighting System 838 for my band and some DJ work. When I received it, hardware for the stands was missing and the Chauvet 9005 controller didn't work properly. MF customer service is fantastic. They replaced malfunctioning and missing parts. Now it is working well enough. There is an annoying clicking sound when the lights change only notice when DJing, the band is loud enough that no one notices. I can only use the music activated chase because the fastest chase setting for timed chase is once every minute. That means the lights change at best 3 times during a song. In my opinion that is not nearly enough. So as long as you like the music activated chase it will work for you. I do like the fact that I can add more relay packs and light sets to the same controller. I am not completely impressed with Chauvet products, this is one of two I have purchased that needed to be replaced out of the box. The other is a Hurricane 900 fog machine.

              I'm a musician that DJ's too (15 years). The big negative is the clicking that accompanies the on/off of the lights. Lower volume gigs its noticeable. Positives are extensions for cables are super cheap, you can gang a bunch of these things together. The stands are extra tall and heavy duty. Par 38's are super light and portable. Great value for the money, and the controller even has fog/strobe control. GREAT VALUE (even if it is a little clicky)...

              838 Lighting System a great value

              By Cop3sga

              from Savannah

              Comments about Musician's Gear Stage Lighting System 838:

              My band purchased this system to replace our previous worn-out set up and we found this to be a great value. First of all, it looks good, and the 12' maximum height is more than enough for about any venue. True, you need to do a little prep work but no more than expected. The power cords from the light cans are short but rather than purchase expensive extension cords I went to the store and bought 100' of 18 agw black lamp cables which match the can cords and using wire connectors and shrink wrap I extended the power cables to each can 12'. I used wire ties to attach the wires to the arm and then together into one cable to run down to the power strip. I do recommend buying an additional connector and 9 pin cable to finish the set up, and don't forget the gels. So now we have maybe $400 invested in the entire system, which is still a bargain. The setup is not complicated and the sound driven chase is pretty cool to use occasionally. The random chase is pretty slow and I don't see the need for it. The system also allows you to plug in a smoke machine and a strobe and control it from the central light control. Overall, a great value for the money.

              Just purchased the set and am confused as to why the power cords to the Par 38B lights are so short. Thought this was a complete package - now I need to buy eight extensions cords to be able to plug in each light into the relay pack. Only came with one cable - will need to buy another cable to connect both relay packs to the controller.
