I have been using this strobe for a year now, and been traveling around a bit. The thing works like a charm to this day, and I haven't changed the bulb yet. The knobs are very plastic and feels cheap, but the rest is rigid metal. The flash is very strong and is enough for a small to medium sized club room. You have many options for the speed of the flashing. From long intervals, to ultra rapid flashes.
i use the eurolite strobe in a disco ,it is very effective ,very bright fills the room even big halls ,hotels etc ,i use it with the botex 1 channel controller ,it works very well .i have been using it now for 4 years every saturday night and havent changed the bulb yet. well worth the money.
