Hi all,

First off, my appologies if this does not belong here. I thought there used to be a classfieds forum, but didnt see it when I went to post, so Im posting on the main forum.

Im selling my Alien Bees equipment:

3 AlienBees A400 monolights (black)
2 10' AB light stands
1 13' heavy duty AB light stand
1 AB boom arm attachment
1 Giant size AB softbox (30" x 60"
2 AB 32" white/silver reversable umbrellas
1 20 degree spot grid
1 spare never used flash tube
3 AB sync cords (I believe they are 15 feet long)

Totaled up, this list would cost $1139.00 Purchased new from Alien Bees.

I will sell mine for $750.00 plus shipping. Thats about 65 percent of new pricing.

Alll the equipment is in very good condition, and has seen minimal use. Perhaps 3000 flashes per head average. The following are the only flaws:

A. 1 of the standard reflector dishes for the strobes fell off a shelf and was dented. Its fairly minor, I straitend it back out and it works fine.

B. 1 of the AlienBee stickers came off the side of the strobe. I kept sticking it back on, but finally gave up. This is purely cosmetic

C. One of the strobes has a flakey power switch. They use rocker type switches, and this one, about 50 percent of the time does not seem to "click" into the on position without you having to "fiddle" with it. This can be repaired by Alien Bees for a standard $40.00 repair fee, or you can simply unplug the unit instead of switching it off. (the switch is currently in the "on" position.

This would make a GREAT setup at a great price for someone who wants to make the jump into strobes. Although these are the least powerfull of the Bee units, I have never had any of them up past half power, shooting at around F8-F16.

I am selling them because I originally got them to do product work for a client (I am a graphic designer) and as of 2 weeks ago I will no longer be doing work for him. I originally picked what items to buy based on future glamour photography use. Would love to keep them and work to learn Glamour, but I just dont have the time. I can accept PayPal. I have a good feedback rating on Ebay, if that gives you confidence.

Also, I do NOT want to break up the set. If no-one here bites, they will go up on Ebay as a buy-it now at the 750.00 price. Just wanted to offer it to someone on here first.
