strobe light strings?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen or used strobes in a string like these: 5mm strobes

I'm looking to add strobes to our mega tree next year and maybe a few other places in the display...

Expected them to be non-dimmable.   But it also says three second warm up.  I would like to test these. 

I am ordering a couple sets to wrap a mega tree.

Ordered 3 sets. Hopefully,  it looks as cool in person as it does in the video.

A lady from Texas, whose judgement I trust, has these and says they look like mini xenon strobes when they fire and the effect is striking - even from a distance.

Her advice is essentially:  Buy! Buy! Buy!

The two links appears to be the same product.  Christmas Light Emporium had the string for $16.99 as their Pre-sale (delivery in six months), and All things Christmas has them in stock for $11.17, so I ordered for strings from them.  Free shipping even.

The strings for $11.97 are 25-light strings.

The strings for $16.99 are 50 lights.

I went with the 50-light strings from Christmas Light Emporium.

Good catch - I missed that....

I see, I got the $28.49 each. I am planning on three sets, so 150 lights wrapped on my mega tree 150' long. This will leave me one spare for a backup.

My mega tree is 48 strands of red, blue and green so this will add some white.

I had been looking at them but couldn't figure out the difference and then after seeing this thread and the lights in the video above they all flash so I could only assume the other set of 100 were all strobes. Guess I will know when they get here.

Mine is 64 of green and blue and then I added the red C9's after my hook head broke and they all came crashing down. The new frying pan hook head can take the AL storage heat and the weight. Thought about adding white and use shimmer until I seen the video above.

Thanks for the info

JR

I believe the 1/5 is one strobe for every five lights whereas the other is all are strobes.

I'm curious as to the normal price of these to see how much savings was in place.

If I recall correctly, $16.99 is the same price as last year.  It's not a pre-season savings - it's more along the lines of making sure you get some.

There was quite a bit of chatter in the FB group last year from people who got them and Darren sold out in a flash. (Pun intended.)

I'm very much looking forward to getting them.  I've got a couple places where I'll be using them and I can hardly wait to see how they look in white artificial trees.

Thanks for explaining George. I have a nice order of the 50 count strands.

I used them this year and they have been very popular with visitors.  You can see them at around 3 mine 50 seconds.
