For musicians, this stand light is a lot better than the large heavy ones that we are used to seeing that sometimes burn out in the middle of a show or cause the stand to fall over from being too top-heavy. The Hammerhead keeps a low-profile but puts out huge light, perfect for musicians on the go.
