A music light must be able to appropriately illuminate a
musician's music stand, a conductor's podium, a chorister's music
folder, a stage or studio musician's pedal board, etc.
It's got to be rugged and portable, and it must create enough
quality light to make an entire score easily legible. All
lights you'll find below have withstood the test of time and provide the
of use professionals expect. These LED
designs will provide tens of thousands of
hours of use at very low
maintenance. By checking them all out, and you'll find the best value for
Our Orchestra Light provides more beautiful white light, more evenly distributed over a
larger area, than any other light we've measured. Nine LEDs, spaced out over 8 inches of precisely engineered optics,
illuminate up to four pages
of sheet music, and an easy-access power switch controls two brightness levels.
The integrated fin keeps light from
distracting the audience, solid state LEDs never require replacement, and a flexible 11-inch gooseneck allows for
precise adjustment of placement. A sturdy, proprietary spring clip provides solid attachment to almost
any music stand or music rack, and power may be provided either by
three AAA batteries (included) or by an A/C adapter (also included
and featuring an extra long power cord, 13 feet/4 meters). Simply put, our Orchestra Light is the brightest,
most efficient, most versatile music stand light on the market, regardless of your application. A handy,
padded storage pouch is included at no additional charge.
It also makes a great light for the bookboard of our
holders/book stands. CLICK HERE to purchase it now.
The Super GigLight is the most versatile clip-on music light
we've ever used. It's measured light output is four times the next
brightest battery operated music light we've tested, and its full
spectrum, daylight adjusted light provides plenty of contract for
just about any reading need.
The Super GigLight features a double folding
mast that places its light head higher above your pages, providing a wide
dispersion of light that's ideal for reading both music and books.
From a height of about 7" above your pages, it comfortably lights an area
greater than 20" wide by 12" deep. From 9", it
lights an area greater than 24" wide by 18" deep.
The Super GigLight was
designed from the ground up as a clip-on light for a musician's music stand, where
really great contrast is a must.
It incorporates a multiple LED head and lens that disperse a
true white light across an extra-wide area. See
the comparison output chart below to compare its light output to
that of other great lights.
A strong clip, that opens up 3/4" wide like an
oversized clothespin with rubber padding on the gripping surfaces,
can secure the
your music stand, grand piano music rack, many of our book holders
and a host of other surfaces, and it can be used free
standing, attached to a podium, or clipped to a tool, utility or
medicine cart. Perhaps best of all, its LED head isre rated for 50,000 hours of use without
replacement of any bulbs!
Each Super GigLight runs on 4 single use or
rechargeable AA batteries, and 4
alkaline batteries are included with your purchase. You should
get about 8-10 hours of good light on a set of alkaline batteries
and 4-5 hours on rechargeable batteries. The light actually runs much
longer, but grows progressively dimmer. Weighs about 9.2 oz
The Super GigLight come with a handy carrying
pouch to keep it from harm while
being transported, and an optional A/C adapter is available.

These lights offer both high quality and high output. Their uses
are almost endless, and we heartily endorse them for reading
music, books, magazines and other materials, doing craft
projects, for use as a craft light, boat light, sewing light,
hobby light, etc; however, we do have two caveats you should
First, the Super GigLight
puts out a lot of light. If you're
considering using either for reading in
bed or elsewhere so as not to disturb your partner, you might want to
consider a light with less output.
Second, the Super GigLight weighs almost 10
ounces, including batteries, and the design of the clip puts
most of the weight above the highest part of your book or
whatever it's clipped to, making it a bit top heavy. If
you're considering holding it manually, such as attached to a
hand-held choral music folder, it may be hard to hold comfortably for extended
periods of time. Therefore, we recommend they be used
where they won't be clipped directly to your book, hand-held
music folder or portable book holder.
Note: All testing is
conducted with the center point
of each light source on axis and directly above the sensor a distance of 6". The light output declines for all
lights as the sensor is moved off axis, except for the Orchestra Light. It maintains a constant reading across 6"
of the 8" of LED and optics spacing, creating an even source across a much wider area than any other
lights, which are all "point
source" or "single source" designs.
XtraFlex Duet 2
Duet 2 builds upon the strengths of the XtraFlex
Duet LED below, but increases the length of each neck to about
11 inches (including LED head) for greater
reach and range of adjustment, adds another Super LED in each head for
twice the light output capacity, and is available with or without an A/C
adapter. An an optional, weighted magnetic cradle
attachment is also
available that both improves stability on a flat surface and
enables you to secure your light to virtually any ferrous metal
surface, such as your refrigerator door, car wheel panel, tool
kit, fishing tackle box, metal forms box, etc. Designed
first and foremost as a music light,
it also makes an incredible book light, or task, podium or craft light.
Each head has its own switch which toggles through 3 positions: Off,
two Super LEDs on, and one Super LED on, so you can select just the right amount
of light for each head. It may be used either as a clip-on or freestanding, and
its goosenecks coil compactly for easy storage. Weighs
only 3.7 oz. with batteries. Runs
on 3 AAA batteries, not included, or optional A/C adapter.
Optional Cradle Base Attachment makes the light even more stable on
flat surfaces and includes a magnet that can hold your light
virtually any ferrous metal surface.

Pedal Board LED Light
Pedal Board LED Light is an adaptation of the
XtraFlex Duet2 and is a must for every performer who uses effect pedals on stage. Two red Super LEDs, for night vision, allow a performer to light the pedal board without
affecting the stage lighting. Two white Super LEDs provide
optional lighting for seeing set lists or other information at the musician's feet. It's also a great tool for backstage too! Switches provide two light levels for each head, dual flexible arms provide infinite maneuverability, optical grade lens provide evenly distributed light with no hot spots, and the whole assembly easily bends for compact position or storage. Extra strong bowed clip grips almost anything, or it may be secured to any flat surface with the included hoot and loop strips. Operates up to 20 continuous hours on one set up AAA batteries (included) or may be powered by an optional A/C adapter (100-240 volt, not included).
An optional Cradle Base Attachment has 4 non-skid rubber feet, makes this
light even more stable on any flat surface, includes a
magnet that will hold your light to any ferrous metal surface,
and features a spring-loaded clip for easy attachment and
