- What is the best pinball mod?
There are many quality pinball mods out there for your pinball machine. But there is one that most every collectors starts with and we were awarded the #1 TWIPY award from This Week in Pinball www.thisweekinpinball.com. Pin Stadium lights is a Wifi app controllable lighting system that is very simple to install and works with any pinball machine. It’s plug and play design allows you to install in about 10-15 minutes. It provides very high quality general illumination lighting (known as GI) that evenly covers the entire playfield whole automatically syncing with the lighting and modes. In addition it provide a very cool enhancement known as the UV+Glow flasher which connects to any flasher and it ignites the playfield with a brilliant effect.

- What is the most important thing upgrade on a pinball?
The first place to start is with the lighting on any pinball machine. Whether it be an older EM (electro mechanical) or modern machine, you can really bring the game to an entirely new level. Most start with adding LED bulbs in the inserts and GI on older machines that come with incandescent bulbs. This tends to make the game brighter in those sections, but the downside is that the dark areas appear worse due to the new contrast of really bright to dark. The recommended way to go is to consider Pin Stadium pinball LED lighting for your machine. This will balance out the dark spots and give you complete coverage for your machine. This is a “go to” mod for most of the pinball collectors today. Also the install is very simple and easy along with the ability to control the lights with an app on your Android or iPhone.

- How do I get power to the lights?
We provide a direct plug and play power adapter for our Pin Stadium control unit for you to simply plug into your machine’s service port for a factory finished look and no power is drawn from the machine whatsoever. Off the grid!! In addition, our lights will turn on and off with the machine’s power. Also during game play, they will sync with precision with all the modes (on/off/fade, etc).

The kit has everything you need to install, no tools required! Each kit includes:

- What other benefits do these lights provide?
Many customers have stated that they are experiencing glass glare either being heavily reduced or removed in many occasions. Also many have stated that they feel they are having higher scoring games due to the high visibility of the playfield. Spot lights are no longer needed either as the Pin Stadium lighting provides a much higher quality of lighting to your machine. See Better, Play Better!
- Will these wash out the playfield or inlay lights?
No, with the app they are 100% adjustable from 0-100% so you can dial them in perfectly to your liking so that they work with all aspects of your game. If you want a dark eerie look on machines like The Walking Dead, Alien, Rob Zombie, etc then just dial in 20-30% brightness of the white lights and then whatever color and level for the RGB. Over 16 million colors!
- What kind of LED’s do you use?
The LED’s we used are custom PCB and LED chips that were designed by Pin Stadium and custom engineered/manufactured for this specific application and for our kits. They are manufactured to specs that are above and beyond anything commonly available due to our background in working with lighting applications for corporate and entertainment purposes. Your playfield is now your concert stage!
