    Thanks one and all for your replies.
    I'll start trawling the second hand photo dealers for Sekonic and Gossen series.
    Bit dodgy to buy of Ebay for sensitive items like lightmeters I think.
    Cheers

With an adaptor (also common on eBay) they can also do 15° and 7½° readings - not really spot, but usable.
    I also use the Profisix and the spot meter attachment (imaginatively called the ProfiSpot) has 1, 5 and 10 degree spot metering. The attachment is a bit of a lump and makes the meter look like a cine camera.
    The same battery has lasted 6 years plus it's nicely marked for zone and EV readings.
    So many drummers, so little time.

    Yes, sorry. I forgot to mention the spot attachment as well as the cheaper, simpler 15° and 7½° Tele attachment. All that stuff is very cheap on eBay now.

    Best,
    Helen

    And they are accurate and reliable? :-)
