Xpress Yourself!

American DJ’s Xpress LED Moonflower Effect
Projects Excitement With 15 Color/Gobo Combinations

DJs and clubs now have the perfect way to “express themselves,” thanks to American DJ’s Xpress LED. A high-energy moonflower effect powered by a brilliant 10W white LED light source, the Xpress LED is loaded with 15 gobo/color combinations, putting a whole repertoire of cool-looking images right at your fingertips.

Not only does the Xpress LED project “gobs of gobos” on the dance floor, this sound-activated effect is easy to use – just turn it on and its amazing patterns will rotate back and forth and change to the beat of the music. Ideal for mobile DJs, nightclubs and small venues, the Xpress LED also includes an eye-popping strobe effect that you can flick on when it’s time to really rev up the excitement. Featuring a 34-degree beam angle and manual focusing lens, the Xpress LED will project clear, sharp colorful images anywhere in the room – on the ceiling, walls or even to spotlight a bar in the back corner of a club.

The Xpress LED isn’t “your father’s” gobo moonflower effect, either. With its state-of-the-art LED light source, its gobo and color effects look great with or without fog on walls, ceilings or dance floors.

Longevity is another LED advantage — the Xpress LED’s light source is rated at 30,000 hours, so users don’t have to contend with the hassle and expense of changing lamps. Thanks to the low heat generation of LEDs, the Xpress LED is a cool customer as well. It never gets too hot, keeping a comfortable room temperature for party goers on the dance floor and eliminating the need for on/off duty cycles. Plus, when a gig is completed, DJs can carry out their lighting effects faster than ever before, since no cool-down period is required. Eco-friendliness is another area where the Xpress LED’s energy-efficient LED source outshines halogen – its low power draw may just make “green” the most meaningful of its 15 colors.

“You really get everything with Xpress LED – a great moonflower that’s packed with gobos and colors, and the long life, low power draw and many other benefits of LED,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group. “LEDs are the present and the future of our industry, and American DJ is fully committed to developing the greatest array of LED effects for DJs, clubs and mobile entertainers. The Xpress LED is a great addition to our LED lineup – it’s fun, easy-to-use, puts on a great light show and caters to just about everyone. Plus, you’re getting a very advanced lighting product at an amazing price.”

In addition to being run as a plug-n-play sound active effect, the Xpress LED is compatible with American DJ’s easy-to-use 3-switch UC3 remote controller (sold separately). A ¼” input for the UC3 controller is provided. Also included on the Xpress LED are in/out IEC power connections to daisy-chain power (up to 22 Xpress LEDs), as well as switchable voltage from 115 to 230V.

Along with being simple to use, the Xpress LED is also easy to install on the dance floor and haul around to gigs. It comes with a convenient mounting bracket and a safety hook on the rear that make it a cinch to set up. It was also designed to provide two things every DJ needs: low weight and easy portability. The Xpress LED tips the scales at just 7 lbs., and its dimensions are a puny 9″L x 8″W x 7.5″H.

The MSRP of the Xpress LED is just $229.95.
