Pin Stadium Launches Neo Concert Edition for Guns N’ Roses TODAY!!
Over the years Pin Stadium has won multiple awards for their top rated industry leading Wifi controllable lighted pinball mods. It is no surprise that they continue to innovate and drive pinball lighting technology to new levels with their Neo Concert Editions.
When JJP announced announced Guns N’ Roses, many at first thought that the factory lighting was an alternative to Pin Stadium lights. However once owners started receiving their machines they soon saw that this was not the case and realized how much GNR would benefit from the installing the Pin Stadium lights for excellent playfield illumination.
Pin Stadium did not stop there by taking things to the next level (go figure!) with their new product release. Lets quickly dive into the benefits of installing the Neo Concert Editions into your Gun’s N Roses pinball machine:
Jersey Jack Pinball’s side lighting on Guns N Roses would be what is described as a “Player-Focused” lighting system due to the upward facing playfield surface mount. The factory lights are intentionally designed this way to help assist the player with shot indications and to add visual pattern effects up to the player’s eyes during various shots or song modes.
With just two small playfield spotlights, one located behind the lower flippers and one near the exit for the ball launch, this is where the Neo Concert Editions step in for much needed assistance and provide some extremely impressive results.
What the Neo Concert Editions(CE) are:
With their clever “Playfield-Centric” design, they focus with precision on providing high quality illumination to the playfield of Guns N’ Roses “concert stage”. This is where all of the action takes place anyways. Fueled by new Lumi-Sync technology which allows them to join forces with the Jersey Jack Pinball factory lighting effects, GI color changes, and lights patterns for song modes.
Here are a list of benefits from their website:
- Increase factory lightshow experience by 3x
- Illuminated and balanced playfield lighting
- Eliminates glass reflections, shadows, and dark/hot spots
- Elevates artwork colors and vibrancy
- Improved ball visibility (vital for song modes where many players lose sight of the ball)
- Syncs 100% with GI color changes and side light patterns
- Configurable inside of the JJP factory settings menu (now that’s integration!)
- Easy Plug & Play install using factory connectors

Pin Stadium has started accepting orders today. Limited initial run of 50 sets will ship next month in May.
