HEBC Basic Signature Series Head 800ws - No Head Cord
The Basic Signature Head is very strong with the square metal shell but it's still only about one pound. It's sold separately from the Head Cables to allow you to select from 5 to 20 foot options. It works with any Lumedyne Head Cable or Head Extension Cable.
The Head originally does include the reflector, 2 diffusors, a metal snoot and the 800ws Flashtube and a 25 watt modeling bulb.
The Basic Signature Head had two sync connections, the household and the mini-phone. It has a test fire button and another button to turn the powerful modeling light on/off. There are “ready” lights on both sides of the Head.
The Signature Series Heads have been revered as the strongest of all brands of portable flash heads. They are designed to be strong but still weigh just over one pound. If you feel that you are rough on your equipment, this is the right Head for you because it has an aluminum frame and front and rear plates so it is physically very strong.
There are two ¼-20 threaded mounts for the light stand, swivel, umbrella mount or other accessories. The Signature Heads include a 5 inch reflector with two diffuser covers and a metal snoot which can be used for effect when shooting or as protection during transport.
The Signature Heads are sold separately from their Head Cables to allow you to select from 5 to 20 foot long Head Cords or the Coiled option. It also makes it convenient for those who pack their gear in cases for transport and want to separate them.
All of the Lumedyne Heads have electronics that can handle 2400ws, however, the flashtube that is installed in your Head will determine the maximum power that you should flash through the Head. This HEBC Head has a 800ws rated flashtube (AFTE) in it when we built it. If you want to shoot over 800ws, then you can exchange the tube for a 2400ws Quartz version (AFTQ).
Remember that all of our flashtubes are rated for tens of thousands of full power flashes or one face down fall onto a hard surface, they are made of glass... it’s a good thing to have a back up of the flashtube and this Head has the AFTE Modeling Flashtube installed originally. The separate 25 watt Modeling Bulb is the AMBR.
