        STAGE LAMPS <LL>

The following lamp TABLES list GTS recommended lamps for the specified lighting instruments. To lamp unlisted fixtures, specialty units (xenon, effects, audio-visual, reprography, medical, etc.), or facility and display lighting (HMI, mercury vapor, fluorescent, etc.) telephone for assistance. For pin-spot small Pars, UV, strobe, and mini-quartz lamps, see SPECIAL EFFECTS. For an explanation of ANSI codes, see ANSI LAMP CODES at the end of this document. Also, COLOR TEMPERATURE  for an introduction to color balancing.
NOTE: If you have been buying the same lamp for over 5 years, ask about possible improved replacements. Always test lamp continuity before discarding.
IMPORTANT: All lamp sales are final - no returns or exchanges.
All GTS lamps are new from factory/distributor warehouse stocks - immediately advise upon receipt of any shipment damage so that shipper may examine the packege.

Compare LUMENS output vs. average LIFE and PRICE. Q prefix = quartz, x suffix = extended life.

GTSAID: ANSI (American National Standards Institute) LAMP CODES (most stage lamp codes are 3 upper case letters) identify a lamp as fulfilling the minimum specifications for a recommended use. Some manufacturers design their lamps to exceed minimum life expectancy ("x" extended life), are available in multiple voltages (most commonly "/130"=130v for higher voltage circuits), or are coated ("IF"=inside frosted) to increase diffusion. Other variations permit color temperature (usually with life expentancy) flexibility. For assistance, telephone 712/255-0972.

GTSAID: COLOR TEMPERATURE is a spectrum rating in degrees Kelvin. The lower temperatures are more yellow, the highest most blue. If color without color media is important, generally:
            3,000 - 4,000º K are warmer, more yellow hues
            4,000 - 5,000º K are cooler, more white hues
            6,000º - higher are more daylight, bluer hues.
When multi-source (e.g., indoor and outdoor light) must be coordinated (usually for graphics applications; e.g., television studios are commonly lamped about 3,200º K), request information regarding color correction filters.
To simplify overall balanced stage color from differing instruments and lamps, it is desireable to select lamps with similar Kelvin ratings. In the above charts (if listed) this is the "/ ####º " specification  listed after the lumen output. Because the color temperature rates the output of the lamp filament at full power (undimmed), the color will cool with dimming. Ask about unlisted lamps which may provide a more suitable color temperature for your applications.

GTSUGGESTS: Ideally, lamps should be mounted and removed holding the base without handling the bulb (the glass portion of the lamp). Although casual bulb contact generally is not a problem, soiling the bulb with significant fixture carbon, dust, or skin oils may lead to spot overheating and destruction of the bulb. Consider carrying a pair of clean light-weight cotton gloves, wearing one, and using it to wipe off the bulb after lamp handling with the other hand. Periodically launder for ongoing use.
