    Hi All,

    I am looking for recomendations on where I can get fairy lights that are wired in seperate R,G,B, and possbily Y circuits - like all the sets you'd get 10 years ago before these crappy 2/3 channel controllers became mainstream.

    Thanks!

    I know what you mean about the drop from 3 or 4 circuits down to only 2 a few years ago. :(

    If you're after a quantity, mysolarled.com would be worth asking.

    One other option is to tie multiple single colour strings together, but then the spacing gets somewhat crammed !

    Hello again! :)

    What sort of quantities I should be looking at to make importing from MySolarLed worth while? Do they have mininums?

    Otherwse at BigW pricing, ~$400 would get me 20 x 200 strings. Not keen on spending much more than this granted Ray will already be getting a similar sized order :)

    At a guess based on my pricing from both Ray and mysolar last year I'd say you'll be looking at around $12-$15 for a 20m 3 channel string. I got pricing from both but ended up going with Ray as the combined shipping ended up being a lot cheaper than mysolar.

    I didn't think Ray did low voltage fairy-light style strings? Or was that a special request put to him?
