So you want soft? Introducing the QRB-48, our largest Quick series modifier available. That's deep. The Cheetah QRB-48 deep parabolic softbox is a 48 inch modifier that provides the beautiful even light with a build quality made to last. The largest of our QRB series, you will get the most even softest light people love out of parabolics.
The innovative Quick Release System is designed for speedy set up and break downs for the creator on the go! Just as easy as it is to open and close a traditional umbrella, you can have your modifier set up in seconds, saving you time and stress when you are creating your masterpiece. This is extra important if you are renting space because who wants to waste time setting up and breaking down when you could be making more magic?
The interior of the softbox is lined with a specially engineered pebbled silver material, a Cheetah Stand exclusive. Smooth silver material can produce significant hot spots in the light output making it difficult to use the box without a diffuser. The unique design of the pebbling in our softbox diffuses the light, resulting in more consistent light while maintaining maximum output. This is especially important when shooting in bright sun when you need to get the most power from your lights.
The exterior is a tough, flexible material that is tear-resistant and water-resistant. It comes equipped with 2 layers of diffusion that can all be easily cleaned - especially important if you are going to take it on adventures! Combined with the best grid in the market measuring at 2"x2"x2", you will have extreme control of your light spread.
The reflector plate adds an extra dimension to the capabilities of this softbox. The plate comes pre-installed, but is removable by user. You can use the QRB with or without any diffuser to produce an edgy and crisp light that is great for showing the shape and texture of your subject.
For softer light, add the front diffuser.
For even softer light, use both front and inner diffuser.
The diffusers can be used in combination with the reflector plate, or without it to achieve many different looks with a single softbox.
The 4 thumbscrew design makes it easy to change speedring inserts when you switch between lighting systems quickly and without tools.

Excellent product. Well made. Quality materials. Beautiful light diffusion and spread. Exceptional customer service and order delivery.
I bought this to replace one of those "insert rod 1 through 16 here" modifiers that would take time away from starting to shoot and I couldn't be happier. With the included PCV pipe (great idea!) you can quickly open and close the umbrella. The dual layers of diffusion as well as the beauty dish plate, you have so many different options on how you want the light to look. Paired with my Godox AD400Pro and shooting in TTL has never given me such beautiful light with such ease. I'm very happy I added this to my arsenal.
Every time I have ordered products from Cheetah Stand, they have always beaten the estimated delivery time. Check out is quick and easy and I have no issues with the website. Products arrive in good condition and quality/price, can't be beat.
Exterior is thicker than a lot of less expensive softballs (glow, flashpoint) and interior has a nice pebbled silver which is nicer than flat silver. It scatters the light better inside the box and produces a little more eveness. Setup is very easy and they even sent some sch 40 PVC pipe to push the box open without having to dive into it. Shipped fast and is as described. Would definitely purchase other products from Cheetah.
