    Stand light

    I'm interested in recommendations on a durable stand light. My current light is a couple years old and has begun flickering annoyingly during use. Seems to be the wiring to the unit, as when I jiggle the wire, it gets better/worse. Maybe they aren't designed for long life and daily use. Recommendations?

  2. I wear a work light that's on a headband. The director really likes it when I look up and spotlight him with it.

    Okay, back to serious answers.

    I’ve been using the “Mighty Bright Orchestra Light” for years. It has 9 LED lights with 2 brightness settings. It’s powered by 3 AA batteries or by using an AC adapter. I use rechargeable batteries which make it cost efficient. It has a goose-neck so adjusting is easy. Also has a black plastic flange to reduce the light from shining into the audience (or conductor).

    Here’s a video link:

    There are several different models similar at Amazon. Below is a link to the one I mentioned.

    Yeah, the Mighty Bright is the one to have. It's no fooling around. Bright enough to read music. Runs batteries or plugin. Pricy, but you don't have to worry about if its bright enough or not.
