Satel Kum / Gemini Unit Chrome Version
This is the larger of the 2 Kum units made by Satel. This is the Kum (Full Size – Chrome Version) light effect. Satel also made a smaller unit named the Baby Kum which has a single head and a central 150 watt light source. This unit features 20 – 12 volt, 35 watt AR111 PAR 36 lamps (10 on each side). You can also use standard glass 12 volt, 30 watt sealed beam lamps, but I prefer the AR111 lamps because they are lighter and have a much longer life expectancy. The unit is comprised of the large light unit and a dedicated controller. The controller features a switch to turn on the lamps, the AC motor (Which spins the 2 heads in opposite directions) and the DC motor (Which controls the main rotation of the entire unit). The DC motor also has a speed adjustment know so you can control how fast the main unit rotates. Both motors are very high quality and made from Crouzet of France. These units were available in black and chrome originally when manufactured. I have another unit that was originally chrome but was in really bad condition when it arrived so that one was refinished to black. Here is a link to that unit: Satel Kum – Black Version I am happy to have this chrome version as it is hard to find one of these that has survived from the 80’s and still looks good. Unit made in Spain.
