Anyone else have a strobe light? (You can see it on the left in my top picture, earlier herein.)

Can't stand the thing, actually, but I keep thinking sometime some drunk dude who's over here recording and being a doosh will turn out epileptic ...

Which doesn't apply to me, the last part. Twisted Evil

No one has black lights?

No Peter Max aficionados?

I did, but they're now upstairs for my kids nightly dance party.

I actually got the strobe for a visual metronome, but it wasn't granular enough.

Picked up these bad boys at an antique show a few years ago. Current plan is to wire a decent sized light bulb inside each of them so they glow (and shoot light out the eyes/mouth) and put one on top of each monitor.

Ambiance, bitch.

Wouldn't they be more use as head mics, like a omni in each ear?

Naw...using those for dummy head mics, the HF response wouldn't go past 9 or 10 kHz! Laughing

Hard to tell from the photos, but they're smaller (a regular light bulb might just barely fit inside) and made of ceramic.

If they were full (human) size and rubber?... head mics for sure.

Rope lights last a whole lot longer than standard christmas tree lights. You can also put those little in-line dimmers on them.

I don't have a studio, though I do have a house nowadays. 3-4 years ago I got back into woodworking, and needed more lights for my apartment. Also I was taking regular evening walks that included the back parking lot of the high school along the trail, right by the dumpster where the wood shop threw away their scraps. Some nice wood in that dumpster, rarely anything big but lots of oak, cherry, walnut, etc. So I started piecing things together from various scraps, which definitely got me into that "art from limitations" thing.
