StageLitePro Announces a New Line of Personal Stage Lighting

Each of the units has 40 brilliant white LED lights angled and concentrated on where you need to see the most - the stage floor.

Lino Lakes, MN (July 24, 2012) – StageLitePro has introduced their new line of Personal Stage Lighting. Each of the units has 40 brilliant white LED lights angled and concentrated on where you need to see the most - the stage floor.  These lights are cool to the touch and specifically engineered to maximize the visibility of your pedals, set list, or lyric sheets while minimizing light spillover to the audience. Tour grade 10 mil. powder coated aluminum construction offers the ultimate in protection for your pedal investment, and the fully encapsulated LED lights will not be damaged from moisture intrusion, low frequencies, or harsh use. 

StageLitePro lights are available in three sizes: the 24” wide Pedal Guard Pro, retail price $99, the 14” wide Pedal Guard Compact, retail price $79, and the 14” wide Set List Pro, retail $69. All 3 of SLP’s lights are available in both 120 VAC and 9 VDC, and the 9VDC version can be powered by your pedal board power supply or by 9 Volt battery adapters.
