    Among many of the recent entrants into the sound profession, I’ve noticed a lack of knowledge when it comes to wiring a stage.

Improper wiring of… View this story

    Ideally, a band on tour should wake up to a late brunch, hit the hotel health spa, shower and head over to the hall where everything is plugged in and ready for an extended sound check/jam session. If this scenario is unfamiliar to you, then more efficient methods of connecting your equipment at the last second may be exactly what you need. It certainly can’t hurt.
