Matrix Panels (4)

Four Each 48" X 96" matrix panels
Each panel has 1,152 pixels with each strip having 192 pixels.
Each pixel string has a 3 conductor connector on one end and
one 2 conductor connector on the end for power injection.
They are bullet nodes installed in a Boscoyo 2" X 2" ChromaMesh
panel. The ChromaMesh has an aluminum frame and SS handware.
The pixels are oriented in a up/down/up/down pattern starting
in the lower left corner with the frame oriented 4' wide X 8' tall.

$500 per panel

Each panel requires two 350 watt 12volt power supplies.
The original configuration was for 4 panels across and controlled
with a Falcon F16v2 and expansion board.
The power is distributed through Falcon disto boards (fused) for
main power and power injection.
The pixels were so bright that I took it down to 50% brightness.

Total price for all four panels with power
supplies (8), disto boards (8), Falcon controller,
Falcon expansion & pigtails:

$2,900 Plug & Play
(8' h X 16' wide 4,608 pixels)

5 guy wires at the and 2 at the mid point

Rear shows 4 CG1500 enclosures for the
8 power supplies and one for the Flacon

The enclosures are mounted on steel frames
for gound support but they are mounted
to the fence in this case.

Inside power supply enclosure. Typical of four.

The Falcon show six output per panel. The Falcon
is only outputting signal and gets it's power from
one of the external power supplies.

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 (20 SOLD = 73 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)

36' Tall Mega Tree
 $ Make Offer $
The largest of our mega trees uses a 2" schedule 90
steel pipe (about 1/4" thick) it has 4 tie downs at the
top and mid points. I used 1/8" wire rope for the
tie downs with turn buckles. I used eye bolt set
into concrete and covered with 6" green irrigation
covers. The top has a removable steel hook head
with 36 hook points.
I used 192 strings of lights, LED, C6, 100 count.
48 strings of each colors, R, G, B & W.
I controlled it with three 16 channel LOR
Controllers, 4 strings per channel = 48 channels
I am including the Bottom hoop (14' dia) made
out 1" square rolled aluminum tubing and
the mid hoop (7' dia) which is 1-1/2" rolled
aluminum tubing.
Mid hoop has aluminum struts connected to
a steel center tube bracket with set screws.
The center hoop is also fastened to middle
guy wires with u-bolts
Includes the exploding star shown and the former
5 part star that can be sequenced to similate spinning.

Bottom hoop shown with C6 LED 100 count strings

24' Tall Mega Tree
 $ Make Offer $
The medium of our mega trees uses a 2" schedule 90
steel pipe (about 1/4" thick) it has 4 tie downs at the
top. I used 1/8" wire rope for the
tie downs with turn buckles. I used eye bolt set
into concrete and covered with 6" green irrigation
covers. The top has a removable steel hook head
with 24 hook points (I think).
I used 144 strings of lights, LED, C6, 70 count.
36 strings of each colors, R, G, B & W.
I controlled it with three 16 channel LOR
Controllers, 3 strings per channel = 48 channels
I am including the Bottom hoop (10'-6" dia) made
out 1" square rolled aluminum tubing.
Includes the exploding star shown and the former
4 part star that can be sequenced to similate spinning.

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.

I am including 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)


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.

$300 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.

Wire Frame Motorcycles

These four old school wire frames represented my family.
I was Santa, my wife was Mrs. Santa and our two
sons were the Elves. Each one is about 5' H X 7' W
The wire frames are of similar construction. The frames
are white powder coat and the lights are incandescent.
Each frame has a three channel chase controller so
the wheels similate turning. They were originally designed
to turn on and spin their wheels when power is applied but
I decided I wanted to be able to turn them on and then
make the wheels spin. I made custom frames for
them to sit on the peak of my roof. With guy wires and
sand bags, these frames never budged even in the
higest winds. Of course these can go in the yard as well.
Each frame comes with enough extra lights of each
color used (many) so you never need to look for
replacements of the correct type.
I am including the steel roof frames. They can be adapted
for just about any roof or used in the yard as they'll
raise the frame up a bit off the ground.
The wire frames fold down and in half for easy storage.
I have not seen any of these available anymore.
The LED version of Santa is available for around
$1,100 but has less actual lights and only 4 colors.

Santa $ 800

Mrs. Santa $ 700

Elf #1 $ 700

Elf #2 $ 700

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 (7 available)

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

Lynx PC Kits

I have Lynx Express DMX AC boards, Lynx MR16 DC
boards, heat sinks for the Express and many other
various Lynx boards and kits including wireless
The full Lynx Express kits are $70 which includes the PC
board, heat sink and components.
You will need cords and an enclusure.
I have version 3 & 4 Lynx Express PC boards. They
operate the same but the component layout and list
is a bit different as RJ (the designer) tweaked the design.

$70 Kit (1 available)

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.

$100 Used (10 available)

$150 New - SOLD

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

This is a six headed LED strobe with
792 SMC 5050 LED's and weighs about 20 pounds.
 (6 X 132 surface mounted LED's)
This DMX strobe is 10 channels. Manual
It comes with a 60" truss, wood base & clear acylic cover.
I bought this after seeing a video of it running here.
You can sweep the strobe back & forth or turn all
six banks on at once. I paid about $350 for just the
strobe but the short time I used it (two seasons),
I really liked it.
 The audience really liked it too. One available.

$250 (strobe+truss+cover)

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.

8' Bethlehem (Holdman) Star

I built this out of 1/2" CDX plywood and followed
Richard Holdman's instructions here.
I originally used C7 clear incandesent bulbs but when
dimable C7 bulbs came out I replaced them.
The star is three channels. One channel is the
up down left right star. One channel is the four
sided star canted in the middle and one channel
is the 8 rays radiating out. Steel frame included.

$80 - SOLD

Tough to see the lights on the black background but
I guess that's the point.

I used C7 sockets at 12" centers and
stapled the extra wire on the back.
Because we get high winds I built a custom frame for
my roof. I used three 40# sand bags on the frame and
it never moved.
