One of our loyal customers decided to do something a little fancy. He decided that he wanted to make his own catherine wheel using our 1kg machine pressed conic fountains.
He used 5 of our super conic fountains to drive the wheel sending out sparks left, right and centre. As you can see from the video below, it really does start to pick up speed – we think it’s very cool
Fountains are a popular, but under-estimated firework. They lack the “Big Boy” appearance of a large rocket, and don’t draw the eye on the shelf like big cakes – but none the less they are a cheap and excellent way of adding to your display.
I’d recommend that fountains are used early in the display – perhaps get people’s attention with a large rocket to start, then start the show properly with some fountains. Children love them, and they are a pretty and pleasant way to ease people into the show.
The Krazy Klock fountain, a long time favourite from Brothers Pyrotechnics, has a remarkable mix of effects and duration for its small size, and looks cool- start with that! Build on this with some multi effect fountains, followed by Conic Fountains (see the video of the Super Conic Fountain below) – ideally, these should start just as the mixed effects are finishing. They build in pace from a small whoosh, to a very bright and high plume, a guaranteed crowd pleaser. I like to use a Silver at each side with a gold in the middle. Finally, for a bit of aggression, finish the fountains section with a pair of crackle crackers or “snakes”. These innovative fireworks are based on the crackers of old, but use a crackle rather than bang effect.
And, so, that’s that! For a budget of around £40 (the cost of just one medium sized cake,) this gives several minutes of entertainment, will be popular and appeal to all ages, and adds a mix to the show that people will remember. Article written by Moonlight Shadow.
The legendary Mammoth Conic Fountain from Standard Fireworks. This is an old favourite and most people who have used large fountains at some point in the past will have used this fountain.
It is a classic 1kg fountain with silver cascades of light that will illuminate your garden or anywhere you use them.The approximate reach of the fountain at its highest is about 6 Metres.
If you thought that was high just watch this space for Epic Fireworks new fountains for this year. We plan to take the UK by storm releasing a fountain that will make this one look like fart from an ant-hill. We cannot give away too much at this point. But suffice to say we intend to sell the biggest and best fountain in the UK. Keep an eye right here on your favourite fireworks blog for more info.
until then, enjoy this brilliant video from Standard Fireworks!
