You got try Stage Electrics. I know they are not in Cornwall, but have a sales office in Plymouth (01752 269 444) & Exeter (01392 824 100). The school in South Devon, where I worked a few years ago, used them for a fair bit of kit.

Agree with Steve, Stage Electrics are your people!

It's a few years since I was involved, I specked and rebuilt our riggs 8 years ago...
But Stage Electrics were my choice 2.
Equipment will depend entirely on what you want to do, Parcans were originaly designed for cheap colourwash and the latest LED ones do this very well.
The big expense will be a decent desk, I always favourd Zero88 stuff and the tech support was good from them too.

yup... for cornwall, stage electrics. I would recomend a zero88 fat frog.

I would have thought that was overkill for 4-6 LED cans.

could use DMX over Power if need be.

It is slightly overkill, but i've always found that as soon as someone wants LED fixtures they will then hire more fixtures and start to run out of channels very quickly on something like a jester and then end up having to hire a fat/bull frog for major shows which gets expensive quickly. If the budget is available go bigger/more features. The kids will learn it quickly enough.

I agree Stage Electrics are the people to contact. I would contact the head office in Bristol and say to them what you want to do. Then they will probable send someone down to your school to talk to you and find out your full requirements. The after service is brilliant.
