Bowens users can now order their flashtubes from Phoxene. Indeed, our flashtubes 211U and 693U are compatible with Bowens Gemini flash heads, from 500 to 1500Ws.
More precisely, you can mount these flashtubes on:
– Esprit 500 Pro,
– 750+ and 750 Pro,
– 1000 Pro,
– 1500 Pro
These flash tubes are equivalent to Bowens BW 1079 and BW2980 tubes. Flashtube LU693 is yellow-coated, whereas flashtube #LU211 is clear.

A reliable and affordable alternative to branded flash tubes, Peartree are now able to provided compatible flashtubes and domes for all top branded lighting systems at an amazing price.

Most flashtubes fitted with spring contacts are polarised, therefore they have two contacts of different diameter. The flash heads also have female connectors of different diameter, and even a non-polarised flashtube has:
- a 4mm contact at the minus connection
- a 3.5mm contact at the plus connection

In most cases, Peartree offers clear flash tubes (6000K)as well as colour corrected flash tubes (5500K), and also clear pyrex domes, as well as colour corrected (-500K) domes.

Please Note: The impulse spring must touch the flash tube. With a few millimetres gap between the flash tube and the impulse spring, the flash unit will usually work, but with a risk of occasional failure.
