The Duo Blinder is very well processed, it comes from the Italian company DTS. The price initially seems a bit high for a small sheet metal housing without lamps. Considering however the very good processing quality then relativizes itself quickly again.
The joy of the blinder is long. Especially the mounting bracket is very robust and made of steel. Light bulbs are not included, I recommend the 120V / 650W bulbs from the company GE. Two pieces of this are required and these are wired in series.
The lamps do not sit firmly in the housing and can not be clamped. Will say they have game. The blinds are therefore one of the more sensitive parts during transport. In this case a transport case is recommended.
Something less pleasing is the lack of a protective contact plug. This you have to purchase still extra, whereby by the connection cable cross section of 3x2,5mm² only high-quality Vollgummiestecker such as ABL recommend.
For this purpose please use wire end ferrules 2.5mm² since the cable is not available. Please do not tangle without, and in no case tin the veins. This is not forbidden without reason.
Please do the connections of the plug and the lamps only if you have an idea and know what you are doing. If not, do yourselves and the luminaries the favor, and leave the wiring to an experienced electrician.
CONCLUSIONS: I have ordered 2 pieces from the Blinders, and am on the whole with it satisfied. With the small stains I can and could live. All in all not exactly cheap, but you buy them only once. Made for a long life.
The most enjoyable is the concentrated power in a small case which can be installed inconspicuously at any truss costume.
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.

These blinds leave nothing to be desired, well from the processing, so that also the light output on the stage is wonderful. Due to the good processing, the lamp is easy to insert into the holder and can be easily removed even when replacing it. Our roadies are therefore very satisfied and would order this blind again at any time and recommend. The price / performance ratio is right and the advice and delivery leaves nothing to be desired as usual by Thomann. Overall, a very good and positive review. The illuminants leave nothing to be desired, which is necessary for a good illumination on the stage.
