Try a different bulb. It will take any household tungsten light.

Hmm...maybe I'll get them to send me one. ;)

And thank you for no bee jokes!

No, it should be silent except for the cooling fan in the unit. Try taking out the bulb completely and see if it's still buzzing. Might be the unit, might be the bulb. good luck

Interesting. I emailed them earlier and this was their response:

Thanks for contacting us! If the noise is only happening when the modeling light is on, this is normal. It is the filaments inside of the 8 modeling lights vibrating.


I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have anymore questions.

Amazing shot. By chance can you describe the lighting setup?

Lol yes that was for your shot. I thought I had clicked reply but I guess I didn't. Thanks for sharing your setup info and again great shot.
