Bandit Lites Adds More Martin Professional Gear to Inventory

Bandit Lites continues to add to its touring inventory with a purchase of Martin Professional gear.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – Bandit Lites continues its summer of growth with another investment of new gear, this time adding a sizeable amount of Martin Professional units to its touring inventory including the MAC Viper AirFX and Martin MAC Auras.

The MAC Viper AirFX is currently being utilized on Nick Whitehouse’s lighting design for Carrie Underwood’s CryPrettyTour360 where its versatility and power continues to impress the sold-out masses around the country.


“The Mac Viper AirFX continues to be a heavily requested and spec’d fixture,” said Jake Tickle, Bandit Lites Director of Technical Services. “It is hard to find a fixture that meets the demands most productions require like the Viper AirFX does. From a hard edge, tight beam to a soft wash, the AirFX checks a lot of boxes for our inventory.”

Bandit Lites has also purchased a considerable number of MAC Auras, the most recent of which can be seen on Louis Ball’s design for Deep Purple, Steve Comer’s design for Jackson Browne and John Lucksinger’s design for ZZ Top.


“Martin created an industry standard with the MAC Aura,” finished Tickle, “and it continues to be an industry standard years later. With its fast, precise movement, compact size and output, the Aura can spruce up any rig.”
