question

I have a 12 by 54 strip bank that is not a Westcott item. It has metal support rods and a Bowens speedring (which I know isn't necessary with the TD6) Can I use it on the TD6 without damaging the light unit? I'm pretty new to this studio lighting thing and I don't know if the metal rods would be compatible.
Asked by: Charles
Charles, most standard 4 rod systems from quality manufacturers will work with a TD6 but I cannot speak to a non-specific model of softbox. Perhaps if you share your brand softbox someone will have a clearer answer based on experience.

question

Can I attached a Parabolic Umbrella to this light? I have the d5 and I am unable to use one with it.
Asked by: Melissa R.
Melissa,The TD6 can be used with the 7' umbrella but you should also be able to use it with a Westcott D5. If you are unable to attach the Umbrella to your D5 please contact Westcott Customer Service for a solution. https://<a href= http://www.fjwestcott.com/support/contact-support target= _blank >www.fjwestcott.com/support/contact-support</a>

question

Can this mount to a regular light stand or does it require a specific westcott stand? Also, I have a Paul Buff 30x60 soft box and I'm wondering if this accepts any type of softbox mount?
Asked by: Stacey L.
We use this on the Manfrotto rolling stand, you don't need a westcott stand. We have the Westcott umbrella and soft box on ours, so I'm not sure about other modifiers.
