Best of Both Worlds

ADJ’s LED-Enhanced Retro Flash Back 4 Offers Both Old-School Cool and Cutting-Edge Tech

Occasionally, we all like to reflect on the past, and there are a number of ways to reminisce over our youth. But why attend one of those awkward high-school reunions when you could take yourself back to the parties of the 80s with our Flash Back 4 – the latest retro release from ADJ.

This cool new fixture screams old-school, with its Boarder Can effect and panel lighting look – except ADJ has added a unique LED twist. These 4-bank LED fixtures each have 1x green, 1x blue, 1x amber and 1x red cluster of 36x 10mm LEDs and various top-hat mountings allow the fixtures to operate in freestanding, portrait or landscape positions. In true retro style, the fixtures fold up into a transportable rugged hard-case, making it ideal for mobile DJs and allowing for a simple fast break down and a quick set up – meaning you can get the party started in seconds.

But the Flash Back 4 isn’t all about looking back; its cool retro style makes it ideal for parties with young clientele and the pulse, strobe and chase features – including eleven chase settings – ensure pure lighting excitement on the dance-floor or the stage. What’s more, it’s linear ‘stoplight-style’ layout – not to mention its use of red, green and amber colors – makes the Flashback 4 ideal for college-student Stoplight Parties.

“We’ve taken the basic outline of a traditional 4-bank panel fixture and dragged it into the twenty-first century by adding clusters of 36x 10mm LEDS,” says Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager for ADJ USA. “ADJ is always looking for its products to be versatile and the Flash Back 4 is suitable for a variety of purposes. Being quick to set up due to its light weight and rugged hard-case housing, the fixture is perfect for mobile DJs. But equally, its flash, strobe and multiple chase settings make it ideal for generating excitement amongst young clubbers.”

Of course, the Flash Back 4 isn’t totally retro; a number of technical benefits have been worked into the design – which means you can achieve that old-school feel without reverting back to old equipment. The Flash Back 4 has 11 built-in programs and two operational modes, making it flexible depending on your needs. A recessed control panel allows for ease of operation and XLR sockets allow the two fixtures to be connected, working in sync to produce atmosphere-capturing lighting effects.

Lightweight, quick to set up, and able to be mounted in various positions, the Flash Back 4 offers DJs and clubs a number of ways to manipulate this cool, retro fixture – along with providing a number of lighting effects with which to captivate audiences. It’s the old-school, 80s disco feel but with the benefits of reliable, cutting-edge technology – meaning the Flash Back 4 truly does offer the best of both worlds.
