TOP 5 LOUD FIREWORK CAKES

THE EPIC FIREWORKS TEAM TOP 5 LOUD FIREWORK CAKES (SINGLE IGNITION BARRAGES)

Loud fireworks are perhaps not to everyone’s taste but here at Epic we have a fair share of super loud bad boy cakes which are bound to get the heart pumping. Here are our TOP FIVE to check out and a little more information about each one.

BUNKER BUSTER – 100 SHOTS – DURATION – 75 SECONDS – NOISE 10/10 – £165.00

This is a remake of an Epic Fireworks classic which certainly packs a punch both in sound and visual effect.

In the initial salvo, blue ground glitter effects glisten before the green comet breaks into a huge brilliant yellow brocade effect followed by red pearls bursting into red peonies with strobing white stars intermingled. Next volley starts out with red comets shooting skywards before breaking into more peonies with a huge white palm centre with the red stars strobing. Then onto the fast firing multi shot finale to golden dragon effs with a crackling strobe finish.

Absolutely out of this world and at over a minute it would be great as a standalone barrage for a celebration, New Year’s Eve or as part of a bigger display. With 30mm tube bore size it has a maximum decibel count of 120 so definitely not one for the faint-hearted.

PALMS AWAY – 40 SHOTS – DURATION – 35 SECONDS – NOISE 9/10 – £64.98

New to the Epic range in 2018, this became an instant hit both with pyro lovers and staff here at Epic.

This display quality barrage is simply stunning. A single effect cake which is really useful if you are creating your own display. Timed to perfection, each break fills the sky with massive gold and silver crackling palms and boasting 30mm tubes, it also peaks at 120 decibels and would be suitable once again for any display, large or small. Absolutely gorgeous.

FESTIVAL OF LIGHT – 50 SHOTS – DURATION – 25 SECONDS – NOISE 9/10 – £64.98

Another new addition to the Epic range inn 2018, this absolute beauty is one of the best-fanned cakes on the market. Fast firing as silver stars erupts in fanned formation which then breaks into spectacular multi coloured peonies. A sky filled with brilliance with loud reports will certainly fit the bill. Check out the video for full details and see for yourself the magnificence of this little cracker.

QUAKE – 19 SHOTS – DURATION – 28 SECONDS – NOISE 8/10 – £19.92

In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful cakes in our range. Once again, huge 30mm bore size means another 115-120 decibels of noise level. The richness of the blue colouring is most apart in this multi coloured multi effect cracker of a cake as this is the most difficult colour to achieve without loss of clarity and is a must in my opinion for any display.

The effects begin with multi coloured peonies and dragon eggs and has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Blues, greens, reds, and yellows fill the sky and is a great addition to the Epic range.

STING RAY – 19 SHOTS – DURATION – 29 SECONDS – NOISE 8/10 – £19.92

Righty ho, the last but by no means the least of our collection today, Stingray also was added to the range in 2018. Once again, loud and lush with a perfect combination of ground and aerial effects each comet leaves the ground leaving a thick glittering trail behind it in a spiral pattern and then upon reaching height breaking into a multitude of beautiful peonies, dragon eggs, and red-tipped brocades. Fast, furious and beautiful to boot – what more could you want.
