After the Sharpy’s extraordinary worldwide success, Clay Paky is now launching the Supersharpy, an ACL beam type moving head featuring a 470 watt lamp. If you have been amazed at how bright the Sharpy is, the Supersharpy will leave you literally stunned. Its light beam is nothing short of three times brighter, with a far bigger difference than you would expect by simply comparing the rated wattage of the two lamps (470 vs 190). Thanks to this incredible output, the Supersharpy’s light reaches never-seen-before mid-air distances, making the Supersharpy the first low-wattage beam light that can really challenge a searchlight.

However Clay Paky has not settled for merely producing a “more powerful beam light”. The Supersharpy also provides the utmost in terms of light quality and number of effects.
