Tambora Flash


Tambora Flash is the only hybrid fixture on the market that can act simultaneously as a strobe, wash, and blinder, specifically designed with a modular approach for use in a linear array, to offer new creative opportunities to lighting designers.

Following its successful range of LED bars introduced last year, Claypaky has expanded the Tambora family further and introduced Tambora Flash.

The strobe section is based on two strips of very powerful white LEDs and a large beam angle aperture, capable of bringing a real impactful light into the show.

The blinder and the wash functions are obtained thanks to 4 large central RGBWW LED reflectors of 100W each, individually controllable in each function through the Advanced Layers Management. The Warm White LEDs allow the “warm” effect typical of blinders. However, the blinder effect can also be obtained using colored LEDs, for a more dramatic effect than usual.

Both strobe and blinder effects are so visually striking that they can be perfectly appreciated in concerts and live events in broad daylight, even in bright sunlight!

Tambora Flash was conceived and developed for combining several product units horizontally and vertically, to obtain clusters that are conceptually like the line arrays of audio systems. Its core unit is suitable for smaller venues and this is contained in a modular design that can be quickly connected to create larger units for use in big venues and stadiums.

Claypaky Tambora Flashes offers two quick coupling modes and the adjustment of each single fixture within the cluster on a 30° angle, to adapt to every application.

The advanced mechanics and the ease of combining matrix products make Tambora Flash a versatile and fun-to-use system.

Tambora Flash offers an IP66 degree of protection, guaranteeing ideal use outdoors.
