Hi all,
I've been thinking about getting one of those clip-on lights for putting on my music stand when it gets dark at gigs. Does anyone know any that are pretty decent? They all seem to look pretty much the same to me...

I bought a Mighty Bright LED battery operated stand light and I am very pleased with it. The one I have is a twin flex and there is now a model with double lights in each arm. You can check them out at DJM music. Highly recommended.

I use a mains powered stand light at home all the time.

Jim.

This one has 4 leds, so you can switch on one, 2, 3 or 4. If you need more than 4 either your music's too wide, or you should be able to read without the light.

Works well according to the boss. Her comment was that you need the double leds, one for each on its own can be too dim, like the cheap battery thing she had before. She hasn't used it on mains, the batteries last well, but a mains adapter is available if you want.

But don't let your kids near it, my oldest used it once, then twisted the stems into a rope. Still works, but the kinks will be there for ever I think.

It's much darker in Scotland..........a single nightlight would work there ;}

Hi Greg

It was pricey, but I've just bought this one for £39.99: K&M Stand Light 12286 With Case - Battery Or AC Operated. It comes with an AC adaptor and its own padded carry case, and can take up to 9 batteries. This is a useful backup for cases when the mains extension doesn't reach to your stand, or all the sockets are full.

On non-rechargeable batteries, 3 batteries give 8 hours of light, 6 give 16 hours and 9 give 24 hours.

On rechargeable (1500 mAh) batteries, 3 batteries give 2 hours of light, 6 give 4 hours and 9 give 6 hours.

That should be enough to see you through New Year's Eve :) It is sturdy and very bright.
