As an Audiance member I hate blinders. It destroys the show for me.
Sun glasses and earplugs do not a pleasant indoor experience make.

The blinders that seem to be popular in the stage set are the worst. They make it so you cannot see the act you paid to see.

I tend to agree, although there are some times when they're appropriate. They're a useful way to finish off a set and hide the musicians leaving the stage, and you can get some cool silhouette effects with them

For the most part, they're over used though!

I know you're probably not looking to get opinions on whether blinders are appropriate or not, but I agree with the others.  Audiences typically don't like bright lights in their eyes!  When I use blinders (which is rarely), it's only once or twice over the entire course of the show, and usually as part of a special effect (AC/DC Cannon Salute for example).  As far as what to get, of course others have already pointed you to dedicated blinders, though to help save inventory I just use banks of Par 38s in the quantity that available power allows.  Hope this helps!

I am not a fan of blinders myself, But 2 of my Client's have requested them, So I do not care if the rest of the forum likes them or not, My question was were can I find them.
