    Never tried but if you can make it fit I'm pretty sure it will work fine. The color head will ensure a nice even uniform illumination while the condensors will ensure good definition and contrast. I use a Durst SM183 with an Ilford Multigrade 500 system. That is a comparable setup (though larger) and it works excellent: better (= more even, uniform) light spread than with a bulb and condensors only.
