              I cannot keep these lights in stock !!!! This is easily my favorite light and those of my fellow employees as well. I believe we each have one or two in our lighting rigs. No sooner do I set another one back up from selling out (and having to get another shipment because they all get sold within the week), I then sell the one I just took out of the box to display if not within a few hours but the next day.These are awesome!

                Comments about Chauvet DJ Swarm 5 FX:

                Three light effects in one box. Supper portable and easy to set up. Fully controllable and reliable. Why buy 3 lights when you can just get one and do the job? This is a real hands on review by Nathan at Sam Ash Canoga Park.
