(The might brite thing I mean) I have one of the old incandescents as well as a flourescent but I think the LEDs are a better solution nowadays.Hi guys, I'm looking for a good music stand light. There are quite a few that sound good on paper but no real way to try them out. Anybody have any experience good or bad with the new generation of led lights?
I've tried several. The incandescent type is about 10 inches long and clips over the top of the stand. It is painted flat black so it blends in well with the music stand on stage, if that's important to you. It uses a 40 Watt elongated "appliance" bulb and is quite bright. This is a very traditional "old school" music stand light. I have it in my hands right now and can not find a manufacturer's ID anywhere. Can't remember what I paid. I've had it at least ten years. The only drawback is that the bulbs are susceptible to breakage and do burn out from time to time.
About two years ago, I decided that plugging in a light sucked, and in an effort to rid myself of the cord, I bought an LED type light. It is compact and folds into a pretty small 2" by 5" (approximately) package with a little carrying case. It is labeled "Mighty Bright" and is manufactured by Gold Crest, LLC from Santa Barbara. The unit is manufactured in China. It takes three AAA batteries and eats 'em up after about two gigs. Like the incandescent, it also clips over the top of the stand and has a nice adjustable arm that lets you direct the light where you need it.
When the chart is large, or you need to see more than two pages at once, both lights are still bright enough to see the edges of the score. Hope this helps.
