Clay Paky were one of the original discotheque retro club lighting producers in the 1980's disco seen they released the clay paky golden scan, at the disco vintage this was a top special effects it the intelligent lighting realm. If you were one of the proud owners of the clay paky stage scan system you would look disco king of the vintage disco providers.
Clay paki now make a wide range of clay lighting produces. I am a big fan of the clay paky VIP 300. The clay paky stage astrospider displayed in the picture is one of my favorite vintage disco lights. I first saw this light at the roller disco in Peterborough Cambridgeshire this was a roller skating disco with over 2000 people on a promotion night. At the roller disco UK. Every one would be dressed in vintage disco clothing or acid house retro disco fashion or sixties disco
The rollerblading disco was not a place to turn up in normal clothing, the more outrageous the better just go in a cool disco costumes or hippie disco clothing. At 10 o’clock at night it would be the light show roller disco display and the Clay Paky astrospider lighting light fixtures would come into there own. There were about 8 of these vintage funky lighting effects. They would fill the whole roller rink with smoke from the smoke machine, there was 4 smoke machines in all giving a dry ice fog haze visual effects fog across the skating rink. The Clay Paky astrospider is old stage lighting but would still be very useable in any night club or party venue to this day, the quality of its make and manufacture does shine through.
Lampo lighting is another old lighting company of great regency and style with the lampo zippers, lampo UFO 1 and 2, lampo whirly wheel 1 and 2. For Light and PA lampo is a really good addition to your professional outdoor lighting equipment. The lampo whirly wheel 1 uses low voltage outdoor lighting in it rotating head running on a three axis motor system, this club light requires a 4 channel lighting controller to run the effect. It is the same as the UFO but has a different head on the spinning light. One of my friends in England has a lampo for his patio lighting, yes this is very over the top for outdoor lights but that’s what he likes. There are so many 60's disco and vintage 1970's disco lighting that still have there place in the world of DMX.
