The GAM GOBO is an important tool for any lighting project and can be used in many ways with many lighting systems. In combination with uplighting and other light projection, GOBO Patterns create 'background looks' when projected on scenery, on walls, floors, or on a cyclorama. Patterns can 'break up' the light used to illuminate people. Some patterns can create positive (light) designs, while other patterns are used to create negative (shadow) designs. GOBO Patterns can be used as an animation device, to create the illusion of fire, water, twinkling stars and much more.

With limitless applications, the GAM GOBO PATTERN COLLECTION revolutionized stage lighting and will enhance your creativity. With the use of spotlight projectors, one can use GAM GOBOS to transform the environment and create that special scene or effect. Standard GOBO Patterns may be cut with scissors to fit almost any pattern holder. The Great American Market maintains over 100,000 patterns in stock at all times ready-to-ship the same day or next at no extra charge.

What is a Gobo?

The term "Gobo" comes from the motion picture industry where a gobo was, and still is, a pattern or design cut out from a large plywood panel perhaps 4 feet x 4 feet, usually mounted on a stand and placed between a fresnel lense spotlight and the actor or scenery on which you wish to project the shadowed pattern. The origins of the term are basically unknown but one seemingly good guess is that it was short for "Goes between the light and the object", hence Gobo. With the introduction of GAM Patterns an off-the-shelf collection of designs that could be easily mounted into an ellipsoidal spotlight, the term "Gobo" was adopted by the theatrical lighting industry. The modern gobo design is chemically etched in stainless steel. It can also be made on glass. The GAM gobo pattern collection is chemically milled in six thousands of an inch stainless steel (6 mil). Stainless steel is used because it can hold up to high temperatures at the image point and chemically etched for detailed clean precise lines.
