Mini Trees (93)

These are the staple of my display.
I made them all from 42" tomatoe cages (link)
I really like the shape of these.
You can buy the cages in bulk from about $2 up.
Each mini tree has 300 incandecent mini lights on it.
Most have 3 strings of 100 but a few have 300 count strings.
I tested & repaired each one for the 2017 season so they
should be in pretty good shape. I have a few boxes of
incandecent white minis so I will include one box with
every mini tree. Buy 20 mini trees, get 20 boxes of mini
lights. Oh, each tree will draw about 120 watts or
about 1 amp. Your typical LOR controller can handle
about 2 amps per channel if setup with dual inputs so
1 amp per channel isn't an issue.

$10 each (30 SOLD = 63 left)

Mini Trees

Each minitree includes a 12" galvanized stake and
paracord to tie each down. (you can barely see
the paracord in the middle of the tree)

24' Tall Mega Tree
Selling off the parts.
Here are the parts:

2" schedule 90 steel pipe (1/4" thick) it has 4 tie
downs at the top. It is XXXX long.
4 each 1/8" wire rope for the
tie downs with turn buckles.
Removable steel hook head with 24 hook points.
Bottom hoop (10'-6" dia) - 1" sq. rolled aluminum tubing.
4 part pixel exploding star shown.
4 part star wire frame star.


The bottom hoop is square which makes it pretty easy
to wrap light strings and have them hold. They just
don't slip on the square aluminum.
The bottom hoop it built in sections and spliced.

Here is the original star topper. It has
4 sections that can similate spinning plus a
fifth channel with twinkling.

LOR Controller(s)

This first box is actually two controllers in a metal
NEMA 4 enclosure (weather proof - not water proof)
This enclosure holds two LOR CTB16D V5
16 channel 40 amp max each
This is old style deluxe board that can run
stand alone. See Manual HERE
The enclosure has a heavy steel cover that is
locked with two thumb screws.
Both controllers are mounted on stand offs and
all the pigtails are LOR.
Since I used this for controlling LEDs, I have
only power cord rated at 20 amps. The
total amp draw from the lights plugged into
this is only about 5 amps with everything on 100%.
(192 strings of 100 count LEDs)

$300 (enclosure w/ 2)


I always mounted it at an angle instead of
flat on the ground to help rain run off it better.

6' Metal Stick Pixel Trees

These stick trees started their lives as "Brilliant"
trees with 1,000 white incandescent lights on them.
I stripped the trees down to their frames, painted
them and strung them with 307 pixel nodes (dumb).
Each tree has nine branch layers (27 DMX channels).
Each tree comes with a 27 channel DMX controller
and 350 watt power supply in an enclosure.
The bottom branches (6) have a total of 42 pixels.
The next branch layer up (channel 2) has 42 as well.
The third layer has 36 and so on...

Hard to put a price on these since the materials
don't add up to much put the labor was significant.
Each pixel string is custom soldered into the count
needed for each level and each pixel is zip tied (twice)
to the branch.
I figure I have about $450 into materials for each.

$200 each (3)


I used para cord for guy wires as they can get
blown over in the winds we get.

Tree "1" uses a CG1500 enclosure and actually has
a 30 channel DMX controller. I had an issue with one
channel so ended up using channels 28-30. Mapping
channels is a bit different on this controller.

Tree's "2" & "3" use a regular 27 channel DMX
controller. The enclosure is much roomier type
of demarcation box. I don't recall the type.
Because these controllers are the older style with
the XLR type connectors, I've included the adapters
I used to convert them to RJ45. Tree #3 only
has one adapter as is was the last DMX device in line.

The trees fold up fairly flat and the bases are removable.

Each tree comes with a 12" form tube to store it in.

E1.31 to DMX adapter(s)

I have a new unused (other than to test/demo) adapter.
This will take E1.31 and convert to 4 DMX universes.
These are still widely avaiable on ebay and usually
are around $85 currently.

$40 (1 available)


Each one has a cat5 cable, 4 rj45 to XLR adapters and
a power wall wart.

Lynx Express Controller(s)

These were built from kits and are a very cost effective
alternative to LOR AC controllers. Each is installed in
a CG1500 enclosure. These have wireless capabilites with
an additional module (I have those too).
Minleon purchased the rights of the Lynx Express from
its creator RJ a few years back and now that product is
available from WieDaMark for $199.
Super easy to program and test with 3 pushbuttons.
DMX input and Two DMX outputs.
These are setup for one AC input so the total board is
limited to 20 amps with 4 amps per channel max. which
for LED's shouldn't be an issue.

$100 each (5 available)


Each is setup for 15 amps total but you can add
a second cord and remove a jumper to get more capacity.

Chauvet 200B Floods

These are Chauvet Color Splash 200B DMX flood lights.
They have 200 LEDs (67 red, 66 green & 66 blue)
They are a six channel DMX flood.
They are mounted in a green plastic flower pot with a
green flower pot tray hot glued to the bottom. The
cover is a clear plastic light diffuser (like in an office
ceiling light)
They have 12" DMX (XLR) cords mounted so they don't
have to removed from the cover to plug them in.
They are 110v 19 watt.
I had used 10 to light up my house but six
would have been enough.

The 200B by itself was around $180-$200 when new but
that was some years ago. I have two new ones I never
used and ten that were used two seasons. They are
all mounted in the plastic flower pots.

You will need XLR cords and/or adapters.
Since these are actually indoor theatrical fixtures,
they will turn on 100% (white) when powered on if
there is no DMX signal to them. I used them with an
LOR iDMX which outputs DMX even when no show
is running.

$80 Used (10 available)

This is what's inside the flower pot:

Mark Z had a really great idea when he saw these
flower pots at McLendon's.

I mounted these to a threaded stud on top of a
concrete form stake. That gives up/down & side
to side adjustability. These w/o stake tubes are new
and never used.

The new one(s) the top w/o the stake holder.
The used one(s) have the stake holders.
All of them have XLR connectors for DMX in/out.

LOR iDMX

I have two if these little gizmos.
These are pretty handy as you can put them anywhere
in your LOR network and you have a DMX universe.

$100 each (2 available)
