Here you go. Actually, more night club really. It's a quantity of Mode matrix light chasers, 4 channel chaser, Dimmers, Arcline controller, Strobe controller, 2 12 way touch controllers, Pulsar slave dimmer pack, a Mad lighting DMX midi controller and an Optikinetics sound scanner controller.
This stuff still sells on ebay but not mega bucks. Maybe there are some retro enthusiasts around.

thanks David
yes nightclub is probably more accurate.
A non-technical chum of mine keeps filling up his unit (on my site!) with these "treasures" which he has "salvaged" from skips and tips.
I wouldnt mind if anybody actually used them, but given the lack of interest, it seems that nobody really does.
probably all this gear is ethernet/laptop controlled nowadays?
very little love has gone into their aesthetic design - which is vintage radio's saving grace.
I think I shall quietly start putting it back to the tip.
or possibly separate out the WEE from the alloy to realise a bit of beer money.

Hey no problem. If you want to try selling them, then ebay is the way to go as there are some people into restoring old retro disco setups.
Sell as a job lot untested and offer a courier like Hermes or say collection only and you may get some bites.
It is a shame to skip it knowing how much it would have cost originally and the fact that it can all still be repaired easily.

As you say everything is controlled by a phone or laptop these days often only requiring a twin screened lead daisy chained through the lights with a DMX signal.
Back then you had to run different channels of mains to the lights and effects so a lot more cabling. Everyone wants it easy now.
The only good thing to come out of it is the much smaller power consumption with all the LED lighting.

thanks for encouragement.
Ill take some nicer photos and try it on ebay for a month.
yes, I know what you mean about the repairing, it is nice to have older gear that you can be confident of repairing.
