Where can I find Blinders, Not interested in the led models, I am looking for the old school type.

Why not LED?

Why not LED?

Older LDs don't like the ramp-up/ramp-down speed of LED for this application. There are LED 'burners' that have adjustable dimmer curves, but I don't know how adequately they mimic the slowness of real filaments.

I've always seen burners bumped, but that was usually because the audience participation was at random times.

You can set fade times on a bump button too. Thats how we are doing it anyway, using a Hog 3 full boar

I think old school LDs really miss the warm
Amber shift as the filament fades to a glow.   It's not so much the ramp times. So if you have an rgb blinder and get the ramp and color shift down they ~may~ be ok with it.

I think thats just splitting hairs

We were bringing dimmers with us only to run the blinders. LED's mean less AC needed and less weight and room needed in the pack.

We held out for a long time until we found high power warm white LED's though. Cool colored led's just don't look right.

I have a pair of 4-light blinders (2 circuits per fixture) I'd sell you.  PM me if you're interested.  Otherwise, TMB or BML (on eBay).

I think the point of blinders is pretty simple. Shining blindingly bright lights into the eyes of the audience accelerates their heart rates, even as they are scrambling to 'protect' themselves. It is physiological. Accelerated heart rate = greater blood flow to the brain = feeling of euphoria.
