I recently received my Mighty Bright Orchestra Stand Lamp/Light. I absolutely love this music stand light. I was using a single bulb gooseneck music stand light. It only shined light on one page and if it was larger than 8 1/2 by 10, it did not really light up that whole page. My Bach book is oversized, so that is a problem. My eyes are very sensitive to not having enough light and the one bulb gooseneck really gave me problems.Β 

The light has two settings. One is a tad brighter than the other. It clips securely to the top of the stand. The switch is easy to access. It uses 3 AA batteries (included) or and AC adapter (included) for plugging in. It also comes in a very nice carrying or storage case. I keep the AC adapter in the case and the case in my cello accessory supplies, not as many accessories in that drawer as there are in my viola or violin accessory drawers.

I would highly recommend this light. There is a Mighty Bright Encore(?) stand light that is similar, this is the Orchestra Lamp/Light. The Fiddlershop link is below. The Fiddlershop customer service, as always, was excellent.

I keep one of these in the glove compartment of my car.

The only negative is that, with the push-button switch and the soft carrying bag, it's a bit too easy to accidentally turn the light on inside the bag. In the six years or so that I've had it, there have been at least three occasions I've taken it out of the bag and found the batteries dead, and at least one more where the light was on when I opened the bag.

Well, Andrew, would that be considered user error? πŸ˜‚ Mine is not a push button. You have to slide it forward, two positions, to turn it on and then back to turn it off. It does not slide without a little push.

Either yours is not exactly a Mighty Bright Orchestra Stand Lamp/Light model, or they have had a design change since you got yours (most likely) Maybe you have the Encore? I don't know how that turns on and off.

It's most likely a design change, possibly to solve the exact problem I had. I think I've had mine for six years. Possibly longer than that.

I used to have an Encore before that, until I misplaced it. That also had the push-button switch, and I now see a sliding switch in pictures of the Encore.

Oh, definitely a design change: I see that even the description text at Fiddlershop mentions a "tap power button" and one of the pictures shows a push-button switch, though Pierre's demonstration video seems to show a sliding power switch.

Thanks for the review CID. We appreciate it.

I personally love that light. You are correct Andrew. Design change. πŸ™‚
