ANAHEIM, CA – The CHAUVET DJ GigBAR 2 is known for doing a lot of things well. Combining LED wash lights, Derby fixtures, strobes and a laser all on a single bar, it instantly turns any gig into a memorable event. Now the portable 4-in-1 lighting system has another accomplishment to add to this impressive list: it’s become the fourth consecutive CHAUVET DJ product to win the Music & Sound Retailer Lighting Product of the Year award.

msr_prize-gigbar-2Honored at this year’s NAMM show, the GigBAR 2 follows in the footsteps of CHAUVET DJ’s Swarm 4 FX (2015), FlareCON Air (2014) and SlimPAR Hex 3 (2013), which have won the prestigious award the past three years. “We’re very happy to have won this award for so many consecutive years,” said Albert Chauvet CEO of Chauvet. “This demonstrates our team’s continued commitment to developing new products that address the needs of our dealers and their customers year after year.”

With the GigBAR 2, the CHAUVET DJ team developed a product that meets the demand on the part of the mobile event and entertainment market for a convenient, but high performance all-in-one lighting system. Designed for easy setup, it can be power linked in multiple units to save time running cables. It also offers a range of control options, including built-in automatic and sound activated programs as well as IRC-6 remote, wireless foot switch and DMX, to match the needs of different end users. Plus, with UV LEDs in its wash lights and strobes it delivers a high level of color mixing capabilities.

As a company that designs products for the needs of the market, CHAUVET DJ places great value on The Music & Sound Retailer Award, which is based on dealer voting. “The dealers are our partners in serving the market,” said Chauvet. “Winning this honor directly from them four years in a row is especially meaningful.”
