    I want to be able to selectively illuminate the front and/or back of my rack, and I have no need for a power conditioner.

    I have searched this site and performed several Google searches, but have been unable to find simple rack lights that aren't part of a Furman-type device or have other features that I simply don't need.

    I am prepared to fabricate something using a 1U plate, a few lamps, and a two switches, but thought I'd ask here first.

    If there's a high-quality rack-mounted tuner that also has rack lights, that could also work.

    Thanks for your help!

    EDIT: I found two. Any other options?

    Thanks, Tim.

    From the reviews, it appears to have a little trouble resolving the lowest notes, but it'd still be better, and less expensive, than an empty rack space or an unneeded Furman!
  3. I built my own racklight with 3 LED modules and a power supply. These are the commercial type used in signs. The run from a wall wart and are nice and bright. I used them in a reflective arrangement in a handmade aluminum shade that resides on the top space in my rack. They're red! Sorry for the quality but it's nearly impossible to hold steady for a long exposure in the dark.

    Hi Hambone,

    Very cool! Do you accept Pay-Pal? :D

    Seriously though (who, me? ;)), that's a great idea - and may be something I'll do when time permits.

    Thanks for posting!!!

  5. I've got one of those Behringer tuners and haven't had a problem with mine. I love the rack lights and I wanted a rack tuner anyway. However, if you don't want the tuner, that little Nady system for $20 seems like exactly what you were asking about.
