hello all: I did a search & this seems to be a topic with less discussion than most (no suprise this is a bassists board). I have absolutely no experience with lighting, but I want to purchase a small setup as my contribution to my blues band. My thoughts were first to pick up pre-packaged light system by Chauvet or American DJ. But while looking at stuff on Ebay, it seems I may be able to get "no name" brands cheaper. I'd like to keep it between $300-500.00. If I go the ebay route, what would you suggest. New or used doesn't matter. My thoughts would be maybe 4 Par 56's & 4 or 6 Par 38's. I'm not interested in say effect lighting, like strobes, fogger, etc....mainly just want enough to light most small-medium stage areas. mostly set it & forget it. I plan on running the lights by foot controller, what type would you recommend. Also, a possible silly question but mainly want clarification & I don't want to screw up. On dimmer packs, to save money if I had a 4 channel pack with 4 edison sockets. If each channel was capable of handling 600 watts could I hook up 2 pars at 300 or less watts to 1 edison socket. Feel free to give any advice or other suggestions and if anything I stated you don't think is wise please correct me. All info will be greatly appreciated.
