Nice but.... no one specs scans. So why would a hire company invest in something no one wants?

Coloursound still have robe 575xt scans and a handful of trackspots, which have earned their keep years ago, but they only ever go out on ”stage z” at festivals - the ones that only need a couple of wagglers - on weekends when you are really scraping the back corner of the warehouse for a gig.

But buying new scans in 2019? Maybe for an instal, or a mobile DJ who loves the kit. Not a very big market...

Just did the balcony of a very swanky hotel launch with Trackspots last week. The stretch tent that covered it left little height for moving heads and there was no need for an operator... did the job in a way that nothing else could've!

It's sad that scans have fallen out of favour, in a venue where there's more wall space than middle of the room space you can create some really good dynamics with them.
blah blah blah blah blah......

That’s me!

I totally agree with everything you said. I’m in the lucky position of buying for myself with no worries about riders or specs

I remember the goldenscan 4 and cyberlight 2.0 going down the same route. Flashlight imported HES in the Netherlands during that time and they added 24 of the cyber 2.0 or so. Went out almost never and went for a few quiz almost new in case.  Friend of me tried to sell 16 Martin 518s last year but the price people were willing to pay was less than renting them out two times.

There’s a set of 4 Martin 918’s on eBay for £1,500 and a set of 4 miniscan HPE’s for < £300. 

I love my scanners (although punters are more impressed with my LED sticks). I was just born about 15 years too late so all the really good scanners are no longer made. That’s why I’m excited by the Robe

A good scan outperformes a moving head in most smaller settings is my opinion.. one people almost forgot about is the Technobeam I.. still a great workhorse and with a 200w msd source not too power hungry..

The Robe looks great on paper. Would be my weapon of choice for a retro-rave

I’m just trying to find out how much they are and where I can see one. Usual google search doesn’t seem to help much

Just as a thought, does anybody know if I can swap around the hanging bracket on a MiniScan so it’s on the mirror side of the unit, rather than the back? My lighting poles are simply poles with a M10 socket in the top so my current scanners just bolt on and stand up right

That must be the white ones, which have been for sale for getting on 2 years I think!

Yes - the hanging bracket is totally removable, so there isnt anything to stop you moving it back to front.

I still need to finish the LED conversion on mine, as they are power hungry little beasts. The Blue Room has an interesting thread on the conversion. The nights I run are 'retro' so having original era correct lighting is a bonus
