Want to add a light but...

I'm not sure what other accessories I should buy with it. I'm new to this lighting stuff, but I just got 2 Einsteins with the soft silver PLMs and diffuser fabric. I want to use a dark background and now I find myself wanting/needing a rim light. I plan on buying another Einstein, to keep color consistency and retain control over the light with my CC. I just don't know what to buy with it. Do I just get a reflector with grid? Do I buy another PLM and the reflector? Any advice would be much appreciated.

On rim lights you want more focus control. Get a 7" reflector and the 7" grid set.

Depending on the subject, a strip box may also be handy for a rim light.

Thanks guys for the input. Maybe I'll just get both. Pity I didn't order 3 lights to begin with. Live and learn.

Einstein's are great, but an AB400 or AB800 in a stripbox (with a grid) should work just fine if you looking to save a few $$.
