Mega Tree Lights

Recommended Posts

Sorry LoriP,

If I was in the market to make my tree more fuller (I know, bad grammar). I would offer to take those off of your hands. I need to redirect most of my funds this year to some work around the house like remodeling the hall bathroom. Did you get them on the pre-buy price?

I like this kit also. I have been trying to come up with my own custom way. I have a 110v electric wench that I was thinking of adapting to the tree and use it. I also am thinking of making it with a second smaller tree on the inside of the larger and hopefully hoist both up at same time.

By the talks of everyone on here, I am thinking of using M6 in Red and Green but I am not a fan of the White (Clear) LED's, so will probably use incan for the white.

There isn't a clear LED. But there is two different LED whites. Cool and warm. This is just my opinion but those icans will be an eye sore with those crisp red and green color LEDS. IMHO.

I was wondering about that also. I am thinking the warm LED's would be the closest to the ican. I will see if I can find any at the after Christmas sales.

Thanks for your input Santas Helper.

Warm LEDs in my opinion look like a dirty yellow. Where as the cool LEDs give it a brisk frosty look. Mix that in with the red and green and I think your good to go. But as stated, this is just my opinion.

Max-Paul, thats about the best interpretation of the warm whites and clear incans I've heard. That's exactly what they look like to me. A string of yellow lights that were dropped in the mud. But again, just an opinion

Well if they were drop in the mud in NC, they would be glowing red.

On our mega tree we use 16 channels, 8 red, 8 green. We use 500 lights of each color per channel for 8000 lights total. It's 19 ft. tall with a 8 foot base.
