Martin EFX600 VS Wizard extreme


Recommended Posts

Ok we are looking to buy a couple of "flower type" lights to add to our large roadshow and are considering the EFX600 (x2) or Wizard extreme (x1).


I was hoping to get a good look at the EFX at Plasa but the light was rigged up in a very bright place so couldnt get an idea of its performance! :S


Can anyone recommend/advise on this or possibly any other effects which would be better? Also where is the best place to get them at the best price?

How the hell can they sell gear so much cheaper than the UK!?!?!


One of the oldest business models ever devised - pile 'em high, sell 'em cheap! (AKA Large volume, small margin)


Time was, electronic equipment was so unreliable, good service backup was essential, and customers paid a proportion of the cost of maintaining a large service / repair shop as part of the purchase price. These days, if a piece of kit doesn't fail during its first few weeks of usage, it'll probably last long enough to just discard once it eventually fails - by which time, there will undoubtedly be a newer, better replacement!


(BTW - my vote would be to go for the Wizard - it's got a 250 Watt discharge lamp - much brighter than the 150W items in the EFX600, and this type of barrel light needs a powerful light source)
