Just wondering if anyone knows how to change the gobos in these (if it’s possible)

2 seconds on google gave this:
Gobos: 7 + open (5 metal + 2 glass), rotating, interchangeable, slot-n-lock
So pop the cover off, slide out a gobo holder from the wheel, lifting the two retaining clips. There will be a clip retaining the gobo in the holder. It's simple once you've done it a few times

Yeah I've got to the stage of taking the cover off, but it's the "sliding the gobo holder out" onwards that I haven't managed to do. There seems to be hardly any space.


I'm guessing that Chauvet will have used the same system as they used on their Intimidator moving heads so I'll have a look on youtube for people doing it on there.

Yeah, they pack them in don't they? The holders would have toothed edges for the rotation / indexing, and should be able to push away from the wheel slightly in one direction, thats the side they will come out of.  Disclaimer - i've not been inside these particular lights but having been inside hundreds of other models, but they are all similar

Ta. 

Time to be a bit brave I think (and dig out so needle nose pliers). 

I really want to get some gobos for weddings and Christmas. Once I get the hang of it, I’m thinking of offering custom ones as an additional service for punters
