using racklights

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by rexspangle, Oct 27, 2001.


  1. I just ordered 2 used road cases (4 and 3 space) It was a cheap price and possibly is easier to transport. Anyways I am going to put a furmann power conditioner with the slide out rack lights at the top. but I am wondering will this work well? or will the light get blocked between racks? any experience with this?

    Yeah it is a dumb question any help?
     
  2. If you position the racks so the fronts are flush when the lids are removed I think it will work fine. You can pull the lights out far enough to overcome any obstructions.

    Ya know, that light thing has always bugged me. There is usually enough light in FRONT of the rig that you dont need to use those lights.

    The place that I always need my flashlight is in the BACK of the rack system. Its always pitch black there, and besides thats where all the cables are being hooked up.

    Why doesnt Furman put those little pull-out lights in the BACK of the unit?

    what stages are you playin on, brewer? most stages i play are VERY dark, or pitch black. just my 2 cents.
     
  6. Yeah it does suck trying to see at the back, what I thought I may try is to mount a small bulb and bracket and a switch in the top back of the racks and plug it into the furman power conditioner since I will not have all 8 outlits in use. This may work I will give it a shot. Who knows though ahh I'll think of something.

    You want light in the BACK of a rack, just do what I did and stick a cheapie nite-lite in one of the jacks . . .
