"I am a solo acoustic guitarist/singer living in the Tucson AZ area. I recently purchased the StompLight Soloist Stage Lighting Bundle and have used it at 4 gigs now.
I’m really pleased with the investment. I agree with other reviewers that it adds a level of professionalism to my events that pays off in re-bookings and tips. I often play outside venues where the darkness can be a challenge. The StompLight provides the perfect lighting to these settings and really helps with me seeing my fretboard. I’m also very pleased with the battery life so far. I play 3+ hour gigs and have not come anywhere close to needing to recharge the battery. Great product and I highly recommend!"

| "Our shows have gone to a new level, from our side and audience response; it's true you'll need a bigger Tip Bucket (we use empty beer buckets now)! Michael, keep up the good work, you're making a huge difference in our musician world! View Martee's "unboxing video"

"The StompLight Pro is a small box that adds a BIG AMBIENCE. As soon as I plug it in I feel like the show has begun. Can't imagine being without it now. I've traded in my original one I purchased in 2016 for the latest DMX compatible model and I want to add a PAL slave unit soon. BTW, built like a tank, which is vital since I'm moving gear 3-4 times a week. GREAT product - thank you Michael and Co!"

"StompLight takes me 3 minutes to light my band and has elevated my stage production since 2015 at numerous outdoor and indoor events in Sonoma and Napa wine country performing as a soloist, duo, trio, quartet and with my 5-piece rock band. StompLight is a great investment for the working musician"

"I use it for my ensemble shows and it works great. I use the Color Wheel Mode with the brightness at 50% and forget about it. I'm busy doing other things at these shows. I'm surprised at how much I like StompLight."

"I perform around 250 events per year. I spent too much money on lighting for too many years.They were always too heavy, bulky and not all that great. My StompLight Duo Bundle is now the only lighting rig I use"

"I love my StompLight Pro & Pal and perform with them at all my shows!"

I get so many comments about it. I love how it is made, the size and how bright it can be. A truly amazing product."
- Mike Hynes
"Received my Stomplight on Friday and had a gig on Saturday. This is a wonderful little addition to my solo performance arsenal! I am all about traveling light and as minimalistic as possible. This small piece of creative engineering is so easy to use and it makes a HUGE difference in my show! Set it, forget it and start jamming! Color this Veteran impressed! Salud!"
- Stefan Filer
"WOW!! I did my first gig using my new StompLight Trio Bundle with a quartet on a small bar stage! We only had ambient bar sign neon lighting. I placed the StompLights and lit the players/stage with amazing results. Not only did we get good tips from a very small audience (cold weather, last weekend of spring break) but I can say that having stage lighting brings out the best of a musician.When you feel like you are on a real stage, you play that way!"
- Donald A. Loeffler
"I love my StompLight!"

- Harold Ohashi
"As a solo acoustic musician, I had been seeing ads for StompLight pop up in my Facebook feed for about a year. I already had stage lights that mounted on a light stand. Last December, I had major shoulder surgery and had to take five months off from playing gigs. Once the doctor released me to play again, I was restricted to lifting nothing more than about 20 lbs and no overhead lifting for several more months; so no lifting my lights onto my stand. I decided to order a StompLight Bundle. It is amazing! It’s lightweight and I can put in in my gig cart or a backpack. It’s not only bright enough, but the various settings make my gigs look professional and I don’t have to worry about reinjuring my shoulder. I always have people, especially other musicians, ask me about my lights. Thanks StompLight!"
- Brian Konig
"I couldn’t be more pleased with my Deluxe Pro Bundle. We just performed outside and it was still light out, but the two StompLights really added cool highlights! I also was pleasantly surprised by how long the battery packs lasted. We even used the lights for tearing down, which was great! Thanks for a great and easy to use product!"
- Chuck Linderkamp

- Mark Samons
"I’m a professional musician 50+ yrs.,and remember years ago how stage lighting is a key ingredient for’the show’. Fast forward, I have been a soloist for a decade, and didn’t continue with stage lighting enhancements….until now! After seeing the StompLight, I’m sold on the ambience once again, even as a soloist. I have an elevated energy to perform, just like the full band days! Thank you StompLight"

"Your lights work even better than I could've hoped. Fantastic professional ambiance, even in daylight. They reflected beautifully off of the tin ceiling on the outdoor stage we played this weekend. We get quite a few compliments on our lighting from both the staff and customers. Thanks for making a damn good product!"
- Dan Milicevic
"It's rare to find a new idea these days, especially in the lighting world. Everybody seems to be concentrating on the look of the stage and failing to pay attention to the most important thing, the people making the music. You've managed to personalize lighting, focusing on the performer, whether it may be a band member, a DJ or even just an announcer (even the father of the bride at the wedding toast). Making lighting simple means that more individuals can use them for themselves, stores can use it for rentals without the 9:00pm call of “we can't make these lights work and the shows starting” and making it sturdy enough that it will come back in one piece. The portability and battery pack means any player can have lighting anywhere at any time even where there's no power. The DMX ability makes it compatible with almost any DMX512 lighting rig either as an add on or as a controller There are way too many applications to get into here, but I think I will be a life saver (or at least a show saver) in the music industry. Your passion shows in your design, execution and your patience."

"Greetings from St Louis. My band, Copper Reign had a gig tonight and I had one Pro and one Pal lighting our band. The effect was good and the audience took notice. I also liked the ease of setup. We powered our StompLights using the Power Banks and after our 4.5 hour gig the lights were still on. Breakdown was to simple, with nothing to do but recharge the batteries for the next gig."
- Tim with Copper Reign
"Used them last night, and they are AWESOME !!!!"
- Dru Hubbard

"My StompLight arrived on Thursday! I must have done something right to deserve such service. At any rate I wanted to comment on the unit itself. I just love it! It’s robust, well thought out and does everything you promise. It’s so incredibly easy and does exactly what I need it to do. I’m thrilled with the product and thank you so much for making it happen!"

"Got my StompLight right after the NAMM show! It’s really quite awesome!. I’m gigging 4 to 5 nights a week and I’ve been using it every night!"
- Gonzo AKA Michael Gonzales
"Money well spent, engineering at its best, this thing is bullet proof. If I were to invest in lighting for my style of venue this is the way I’d go again no doubt. And I don’t lug light trees around anymore woo hoo!"
- Eric Stets
"When I heard about StompLight I immediately thought to myself, "Why didn't I think of that?!" Great idea! For those cover gigs or smaller dates at something less than a "true" music venue or a club where lighting isn't even on their radar (let alone a stage, PA system, etc.), StompLight is a wonderful solution to help draw attention to the music, the performer, etc. while creating some ambiance for the room"
