Metallica Pro Pinball adds LED lighting

Metallica’s Pro Pinball game has added LED lighting.

Stern Pinball, Inc., have announced that the latest production of its popular Metallica Pro pinball machine has been upfitted with vivid, energy-efficient LED lighting. The addition of LEDs to Metallica Pro further enhances the already critically-acclaimed game experience with its notoriously fast tempos, aggressive audio tracks, and smooth ball flows.

All future Stern Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition pinball games will have LED lighting.

“LED technology is a welcomed advancement in modernizing pinball,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball. “Commercial operators will benefit from improved reliability and earnings, while collectors will appreciate the brighter playfield and more vivid colors.”

LED standardization is the latest step in Stern’s ongoing program to modernize pinball while staying true to the game’s historic roots. The updated lighting system complements Stern’s recently updated modern metal and wood back box with decaled cabinet and speaker housing, now standard on all models.

Earlier this year, Stern Pinball posted a code update for the game, which includes additional features and two new songs as selected by fans.

The title track to Metallica’s 1984 album, “Ride The Lightning", and “Blackened” from 1988’s “…And Justice For All” were selected by fans in an online vote.
