This DMX scanner package is great for beginners. The instructions are somewhat difficult to understand so you will need a basic understanding of DMX dip switches before you buy this. The colors and gobos are nice. I wish the DMX controller came with pre-programmed scenes and more channels though. I used the lights for no more than 2 hours and the lamps blew out! Overall, if you are new to DJ lighting, you should consider this due to the low price. But don't forget, you get what you pay for!

Warning repairs not possible

About Me Experienced

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

This is just a warning that if you buy any Venue products they will not provide user support. I lost a minor (user servicable) part from a DMX controller and could not contact Venue. So I had the music shop contact them on my behalf. Here was the response:

"Thank you for your recent inquiry. Unfortunately, Venue does not have consumer side contact information. I did contact them on your behalf, however, and they do not offer replacement parts. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

Buyers remorse

By Timothy Larson

from Nebraska

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

Overall you can do a lot with them and the price is cheap, however be careful. We've have a lot of trouble with them.
It can do a lot but its hard to control. We tried running them off a chauvet obey 70 and had trouble running them sound active with the rest of our lighting. Its almost all or nothing with them. Also for starting out they're a touch confusing to program and the manual isn't much help.
Within 6 months we've already burned out to bulbs and now the leads managed to short out on one of the units. In the process of trying to contact venue to see what can be done.

Caution Before Buying

By Charlton Combs

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

Although it may sound like I am being hard on the product, I really do like it. I understood what I was getting when I purchased it because I researched it heavily. I am just pointing out all the flaws so you know exactly what you are getting without the painstaking research.

Also, the controller makes a really loud beep whenever you press a button, even with loud music (105 db) I can still hear it very clear. I would be a problem in lets say... a church, or a father daughter dance at a wedding.

Buy this package for the scanners, not the controller, they are great scanners for the price, and if you get creative with programming, you can end up with some killer effects.
What all can be said about the features, I mean, you get two scanners and a controller... great, but realize that the only DMX channels are Pan (X), Tilt (Y), Color, and Gobo. This is good, but once you see that you want to use a heart gobo, project it on the wall, and see it is upside down and there is no rotation option, you become limited on what gobos you can use. You are limited to using abstract shape gobos with this product.
Horrible quality, the build of the units is great, but the manual has several misprints that I immediately saw as mistakes. The manual says that the controller is a 4 channel DMX controller, meaning that you would program your lights DMX channel 1,5,9.... and so on, but what it meant to say is the lights are 4 channels, and the controller is 6. That really threw me off at first, but I just decided to chunk the manual and go with what I know about DMX and I was fine. The lights need to be to be addressed 1,7,13... and so on. It was fine for me because I have dealt with DMX extensively, but if you are new to lighting or DMX, you may need some extra help. Also, the controller does not do well when you add other fixtures besides the two scanners. I added a third light (Chauvet COLORstrip) and the controller started sending out wrong info, the saved scenes would be different than programed, but only by a little (i.e. the gobo would be different, the light would twitch, the color would be wrong). Once I added a fourth fixture (Chauvet LED Palatte) It would stop saving scenes, and I had all memory wiped clean several times, which is frustrating when you pre-program for a gig and it is not there when you get on site and you look like you don't know what you are doing in front of the client.

Overall, these are good scanners for starters, but buy a new controller.
Great Value for the money, although they are limited on features, you get what you pay for, just be prepared to buy a new controller, especially if you are going to have more lights. I would recommend the Chauvet OBEY 40 which has a built in mic (for real) unlike the the mic that is not on the controller with the venue scanners, although the manual says it is.

great lights for the price!

By Tim Miller

from Indianapolis Indiana

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

These lights are great! I run them in a mobile rig and have had no problems with them, between them bouncing around in the trailer and just handling them. the dmx board is very basic but controls all of my other dmx lights. Did have a problem with the orginal lamps going out but put a higher quality lamp in and no problems since. Such a great price ready to buy another set

Nice lights for the money

By Pete C

from Lawrenceville, GA

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

I brought these in clearance sale at local GC 2 years ago, and so far no problems with lights. The controller is very basic, you can program some basic sequences but don't expect too much. The automatic music mode is good enough for my requirements. My only compliant would be you have set a DIP switch to go from DMX to auto music mode, with other lights you can control that via DMX, so you can switch between your sequences and automatic mode without having to touch the light (fine if it was not 15' up in my front room). I wanted to add a basic scan light for home parties and at this price it was spot on.

Good for the price

By Jay

from CT

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

I purchased these because our lighting guy was leaving the company and was taking his Martin MX-4s with him. I needed something to replace them without spending a fortune. Friday night I ended up using the MX-4s AND the Scanpacks and the scanpacks were brighter! They worked great and I am happy with them. The ONLY problem so far are the manuals (if thats what you want to call them) have something to be desired. Impossible to understand. Took me 2 hour to get them to work with the DMX. I still to this day havent figured out how to program things. all i can do is manually move them, but that was cool to my audience on there own. PLUS there is no other manuals on line for these. I hope they come out with one. Hope this helps out.

Not good!

By Arron

from Sacramento

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

Ok first off let me start by saying I've spent alot of money through guitar center. I have probably had about as many good experiences as bad. However I'm starting to notice a trend in lighting equiptment. This is the fourth set of lighting stuff I have ever bought through guitar center and this is the third set out of 4 items that have been defective. To sum it up i bought these lights plugged them in once everything ok. The 2nd time within a day part I hooked it up and the bulb had already burnt out. So as I said i think it probably has something to do with the fact that lights don't hold up well in shipping but in general they aren't a very reliable set of lights from what I can tell. I can say though that customer service was pretty good to me. So not hating on guitar center as a whole but I would not recommend lighting from them.

There good At first.............

By Mark Z

from Atlanta , Georgia

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

At First I was really amazed with these lights, I had a gig the next day so I brought these lights along. About half way through the party one of the lamps died then before the party ended the other did. I bought new lamps, and it seemed to fix the problem. The lights are great I would just suggest getting replacement lamps of a higher quality.

Not too bad but...

By Jeff

from Leland, IL

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

Got these and pleased for the most part. As others have said, the instructions are minimal (and have some mis-information in them) and my lamps quit working at around 2 hours as well-both failed within a few minutes of each other. I ordered some ELC3 lamps (550 lumens) to try, plus I'm going to hang them "mirrors up" and see if that helps with the bulb life. Have a good understanding of binary math to set the dip switches! As far as looks and operation, nice and bright...they look fantasic with a little fog in the air.

Comments about Venue Lighting Effects Dual Scanner Pack 250W:

I bought this rig for a great price; I had been looking at it for awhile. Got home got it set up and the power supply to the DMX box kept going out? There is no user guide on this thing on the internet. I do like it and it does everything I like, just wish it came with good instructions.
