bandit Inventory expands with martin sceptron purchase

August 26, 2016 | Category: Print

KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE – Bandit Lites’ massive touring inventory continues to grow with the addition of Martin’s VDO Sceptron 10. The linear LED video fixture provides easy setup, configuration and allows lighting designers a wide variety of looks for both indoor and outdoor looks.

Lighting designer Sooner Routhier specified the Sceptron for Shinedown’s ‘Carnival of Madness’ Tour, with the fixtures integrated within the set pieces to provide video content for the multiplatinum rock band. The ease to which the Sceptrons could be daisy-chained together provided lighting director Carter Fulghum the ability to adapt the rig to fit the various venues while on tour.

“When we put them on our set carts, we made them angled, and gradually they would get longer and longer,” said Bandit Lites lighting technician Elizabeth Weller who provided support on the tour. “They’re also sturdy. We never had any issues with them, ever.”

“The team at Martin worked hand in hand with Bandit to achieve the perfect solution for Shinedown,” said Bandit Chair Michael T. Strickland. “The fixtures are robust and the effect is perfect. We are glad to have these units in our inventory.”
