ATTE Flashtube Extender

The ATTE goes into a Flash Head where the Flashtube normally goes and adds about an inch to the position of the Flashtube from the face of the Head. This is generally preferred when you need a different coverage from a custom reflector than the tube provides from it's normal location.
Manufacturer: Lumedyne, Inc.

You would use a Flashtube Extender if you wanted to shift the angle of coverage of the flashtube in reference to the reflector you are using.  Each one is about an inch long and it is very unusual to need more than one per Head.

The ATTE Flashtube Extender is another American made accessory built here in our Florida factory.  It is important for them to be well built because as the flashtube is getting all the voltage for each flash, a poor connection or arc here will cause problems very quickly.

If you are adapting a custom reflector or if you have specialized lighting needs then locating the flashtube differently than “stock” could be critical to getting the lighting effect you desire.

A popular example of when you use a tube extender is with the telephoto reflectors from Norman™ or Quantum™ which work fine on the Lumedyne Heads.  In comparison to the normal Lumedyne reflectors, the smooth hyperbolic shape of the telephoto variety pushes the light forward mostly in a more narrow beam of light, but it is an f-stop brighter with about 35 degrees coverage.  If you further add a Flashtube Extender then the resulting “bright part” of the coverage is narrowed to just 15 degrees but then it’s a second f-stop brighter than the normal 60 degree reflectors we use.  Note: Both those reflectors each include an extender when they are bought new however the Norman version can’t fit our Modeling Heads without drilling the center out first.

Another example is when the ABRA Bowens™ Reflector Adapter is used with a large beautydish.  Our flashtube would be all the way at the back of the reflector, (like theirs would be too) but if you wish that you could use more of the walls of the reflector, then you use an ATTE to move the flashtube forward into a better focal point for the whole reflector.

The ATTE has a hole in the center to accommodate the two legs that power and hold the modeling bulb for Lumedyne Heads.  However, the modeling bulb should be removed and not typically used together with the ATTE.  Leave the white insulating sleeves and the rest of the modeling apparatus alone, it fits in the hole.  Simply remove the modeling bulb while using the ATTE.

HSBQ Extra Small Basic 2400ws Head w/ 7' Straight Cord

This is the high power 2400ws Basic Head and is a great value. It has high quality circuits and uses the same flashtubes as the bigger Heads but in a smaller molded enclosure so they are also less expensive. They are electronically the same as the larger heads except for the lack of the household sync jack. It is true that the "Basic" Extra Small Heads are the only Heads currently offered without a modeling light which is one of the reasons that it is less expensive than all the rest of the Lumedyne Heads. It also saves money by avoiding duplicating the Power Pack's ready indicator on the Head. This is the best value for a Flash Head that just flashes, and does it well. This Head includes a grid and diffusor set with the reflector and 2400ws Quartz non-modeling Flashtube (AFSQ).
