Utilizing three-in-one, high-impact effects to generate a varied lightshow from a single fixture, the new Stinger II from ADJ builds on its predecessor, combining an upgraded UV LED strobe feature with powerful red/green laser beams and multi-coloured moonflower effects.
Broadening the appeal of ADJ’s popular Startec Series, the Stinger II boasts six 5W hex-colour LEDs (RGBA + White and Pink) and a powerful 30mW red/green laser, while a circle of eight atmosphere-enhancing UV 3W LEDs replaces the original Stinger’s white LEDs.
When these three elements come colliding together, users are presented with a fusion of razor-sharp ‘Galaxian’-style laser beams, vibrant displays of shifting moonflower effects, and plush UV washes. These far-reaching displays of colour-changing beams and immersive washes give users the freedom to take their lightshows into entirely unique dimensions, making the Stinger II ideal for mobile DJs looking to enhance their setup with a compact but room-filling effect.
Amplifying these impressive three-in-one effects, ADJ has also fitted the Stinger II with long-life precision stepper motor technology, allowing for accurate positioning and dynamic movement, whether DJs want the effects to move rapidly around the venue or manoeuvre delicately for a more-fluid, smooth display during mood music. This latter style of lighting is perfect for the first dance at weddings, while the former offers an intensity that will bring the floor to life and compliment up-tempo music.
Furthermore, a selection of 15 pre-sets ensure that the colour of the Stinger II’s effects can be successfully matched to suit the style of the venue or the atmosphere of the music. Whether clients require a static UV glow (for a subdued atmosphere), a sleek amber-gold colour (for a wedding first dance) or simply want the red/green lasers to create excitement on the dance-floor, the numerous features of the Stinger II make any request a possibility.
“While we realize that the original Stinger has been hugely popular with a wide range of our customers, we also understand that ADJ users are always looking to get more from our products,” explained Alfred Gonzales, National Sales Manager for ADJ USA. “Building on its predecessor, the new Stinger II has been fitted with an upgraded UV LED wash feature, while offering the awesome red/green laser beams and multi-colour moonflower effects that made the original effect so revered. Compact, cost-effective and forward-thinking, our customers will be hard pushed to find a three-in-one lighting fixture that offers more bang for their buck than the Stinger II.”
ADJ has ensured that the Stinger II offers a range of control modes, with the option to use Sound Active and DMX-Controlled settings, as well as compatibility with the separately sold UC IR wireless remote and free-to-download Airstream IR App. Thanks to its exciting built-in programs, users can achieve wide-ranging lightshows that fully utilise the three-in-one effects offered by the Stinger II, making for a super-effective sound-to-light setting and automatic master/slave displays with plenty of punch. For those who want to take their lighting to new heights in terms of creativity, however, a two-setting (2-channel and 9-channel) DMX-Controlled mode allows the Stinger II’s effects and settings to be tailored and adjusted to suit their needs, both practical and artistic. Lastly, for the flexibility of wireless control, the unit can be operated using ADJ’s separately sold UC IR remote or the free-to-download Airstream IR App (which allows users to trigger effects and change settings from the screen of their iOS device).
Like its predecessor, the Stinger II is portable, reliable and hard-wearing. Weighing in at just 4.9kg and with compact measurements of 305 x 229 x 311mm, it’s the ideal lighting effect for taking out on the road. Further practicalities come by way of daisy-chaining the power, linking up to 10 fixtures as part of an expansive setup, and all-night operation, thanks to the Stinger II having no duty cycle.
Giving modern lighting users the power and versatility to fill the dance-floor with an awesome cocktail of razor-sharp laser beams, colourful moonflower patterns and UV-embellished strobe effects, the compact and cost-effective new Stinger II is the ultimate three-in-one lighting fixture! Also providing a range of control options, the ADJ Stinger II lets user bring lighting excitement to their audiences in a variety of forms, whether it’s fast-moving beams, sleek UV washes or powerful strobing – or all three! For triple impact effects, look no further.
The Stinger II is available now from ADJ USA and ADJ Europe.
