August 21, 2019 | Category: Print

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – Bandit Lites, the world’s leader in entertainment lighting, has added a large amount of new CHAUVET Professional fixtures to its touring inventory, specifically the Chauvet Pyxis and the Chauvet Rogue R3 Wash.

The award-winning Maverick MK Pyxis offers designers an infinite amount of eye-candy looks, ranging from beam to wash effects, a continuous 360° pan and tilt movement as well as aerial and pixel-mapping effects. The compact moving head fixture can be seen in Chris Lisle’s design for Chris Young’s Raised on Country World Tour as well as Craig Richter’s design for rock band Halestorm and Steve Comer’s design for music legend Jackson Browne.

“When I first saw the Chauvet Pyxis, I knew they had hit a homerun,” said Bandit Lites Director of Technical Services, Jake Tickle. “It was a great blend of a practical use fixture while have a bag of tricks. I was very excited to add them to our inventory.”

With the addition of Rogue R3 Washes, Bandit offers its clients a moving wash workhorse that provides a bright, even light and nine zones of LED control to pixel map 37 quad-LEDs. Bandit Lites has supplied Rogue R3 Washes on Steve Hoover’s design for Jimmy Buffett as well as Mitch VanHoose’s design for Gavin DeGraw.

“I was in search of a “meat and potatoes” LED wash that fit a very specific budget,” finished Tickle. “With the success of the Chauvet Rogue R2 Wash, the R3 wash had just the punch I was looking for. It is really a great fixture to have in our inventory; there are a lot of applications where you just need a solid LED wash fixture and this one stood out for me.”

Bandit has a long and successful relationship with Chauvet with Michael T. Strickland, Bandit Chair, saying, “Albert, Bernice and the phenomenal team at Chauvet have been there as a great partner for Bandit all along the way. We could not ask for a stronger relationship or a better vendor as a partner. The strength of this industry is relationships and Chauvet understands that. Bandit looks forward to a long and bright relationship with Chauvet.”
