Lighting designers Design Partners specified 10 Clay Paky Alpha Spot HPE and Alpha Profile 1200 fixtures, was pleasantly surprised by the lights performance. "I was very surprised at the color mixing capabilities of these two units which I used for floor and set washes, band backlight, and extensively for set patterns and animated effects, says lighting designer Greg Brunton. "I discovered some shades and colors that I haven't been able to achieve with comparable fixtures."

Design Partners obtained the Alpha Spots and Profiles from rental house Acey Decy. "They're great lights," reports Acey Decy's Mike Djomeh. "Clay Paky has come up with a feature set that's flexible and attractive to designers. It gives them all the tools they need to create different looks.

As a rental company, Acey Decy is particularly concerned about equipment reliability and maintenance. "We've had zero problems with the lights' reliability," Djomeh states. "Their modular design allows us to get in and service the lights with great efficiency; they're the easiest light to service in the entire industry. The fact that the parts are interchangeable and standardized among the product line is great. And support for the Clay Pakys has been unmatched. We've had support around the clock; Scott Townsend and Eric Mueller have both been great standing behind the product and bending over backwards for us. That's not something we get from every company." For more information visit claypakyamerica.com.
