Ayrton MagicBlade-R is the TSL Lighting Solution from Ambersphere

Ayrton MagicBlade-R

The latest lighting company knocking on the door of Ayrton's exclusive UK distributor, Ambersphere Solutions Ltd, to purchase a number of Ayrton MagicBlade-Rs is TSL Lighting. As a company with an exceptionally diverse market that encompasses everything from dry hire through corporate events and concert touring productions to the burgeoning market of "special" events, the company says TSL is continually looking to be one step ahead in offering the very latest in innovation and performance.

Why did TSL choose Ayrton MagicBlade-R fixtures? TSL director, Martin Locket explains: "Although our market is quite diverse, we see the MagicBlades as initially being particularly attractive to our concert touring and a lot of the younger lighting designers. That said, as soon as we took delivery of the fixtures, they went out on three back-to-back rentals. The first was a European tour by a band called Crystal Fighters, specified by lighting designer Michael Straun. This was followed directly by a corporate launch event in London for Microsoft for their Windows-10 launch, with lighting designer Liam Griffiths. Then the MagicBlades were shipped directly to their third consecutive project, a Christian Festival called Newday. So we are pretty confident they will attract interest across our whole client base."

Based conveniently beside the airport at London Gatwick, TSL is rapidly expanding and view the MagicBlade-R fixtures as the perfect addition to their current rental stock. As Locket explains, "Our LD clients were keen to add the MagicBlades to their designs, with the continuous pan and tilt having been the most eye-catching feature and the one most discussed by them. Our purchases are always driven by the requests of the LDs who we work with and so far they have been used by designers Luke Edwards, Lian Griffiths, and Michael Straun. For us, utilization is key to any investment that we choose to make and we anticipate high utilization on this product line."

TSL Lighting has made an initial investment with Ambersphere Solutions for the Ayrton MagicBlade-R fixtures but plan to purchase further units later in the year. "We feel very well supported by Ambersphere Solutions at all levels, from a senior management relationship, through to sales and ultimately technical support with the industry-renowned Doug Kelly!" concludes Locket. "I feel sure we will be back at Ambersphere's door for more MagicBlades. As a special effect 'wow' factor they are exactly what we've been looking for."
