Bandit Lites Buys Big in High End Systems Gear

Bandit Lites has once again added to its touring inventory with a substantial purchase of High End Systems gear.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – 2019 may be drawing to a close but Bandit Lites is still grinding out plenty of events, tours and shows. With clients wanting a variety of gear at their disposal, Bandit Lites made a large purchase of High End Systems gear, specifically with the addition of SolaFrame 3000s and Hog 4-18 consoles.

The SolaFrame 3000 utilizes a light output from its 1000-watt Ultra-Bright White LED engine with a boundless palette of effects and color options. In addition to its versatility, with more than 37,000 lumen output, the SolaFrame 3000 has an output that can rival even powerful arc lamp fixtures.


“The Solafame 3000 brings out the best of what High End is made of,” said Bandit Lites Director of Technical Services, Jake Tickle. “A feature rich, uniform output that has the ability to cut through the highest of trims and the brightest of LED walls.”

Bandit Lites supplied SolaFrame 3000s on multiple ventures, including The Hangout Music Festival, Mark Carver’s designs for the K-Love Radio Awards, the International Camporee and Black Music Honors, as well as the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Firefly Festival, Lollapalooza and Erik Parker’s design for Nashville’s July 4th extravaganza.

With the amount of stadium shows Bandit Lites clients perform, the Hog 4-18 console “shines in any environment requiring a multi console setup and networking.”  With a familiar control system updated with the latest technology and industrial design, the Hog 4-18 is a great addition to Bandit’s inventory.

“The past few years have we’ve seen great strides in High End’s commitment to its products and the Hog 4-18 is proof of this commitment,” Tickle said. “Hog 4 is a feature rich platform that is easy to navigate while still being able to perform advanced functions and programming.”


Bandit supplied a Hog 4 console for Rob Thomas’s Chipped Tooth Tour for designer Benoit Richards as well as Louis Ball’s design on Deep Purple’s production, The Long Farewell Tour.

Bandit Lites is proud to carry High End Systems gear and appreciate their glowing customer service. “As always, the High End support team is there to take the call, answer any questions and solve any issues that may arrive,” finished Tickle.

“Becky and the team at High End have been wonderful to work with and are valuable partners for Bandit Lites,” said Bandit Lites Chair Michael T. Strickland. “We appreciate all of the dedication and look forward to great things together with High End in the future.”
