In addition to providing low-profile visibility, the system also reduces transportation volume by up to 80 percent compared to traditional systems.

    This is the first in a series of articles about how to safely rig, fly, suspend, attach, or otherwise elevate loudspeakers and associated sound equipment above the level that gravity intends; i.e. the ground.  The information we’ll be presenting is equally applicable to professionals who are touring or working with rental systems - and to those who are engaged in permanent installations.  While the means, methods, and techniques may vary a bit from rental to permanent install work, the principals… View this post

Besides destroying the rental equipment, there is a high probability that a lawsuit will follow.

    Motorized winches. Lift machines. Line shaft winches. Cable drum winches. Whatever you want to call them, they’re everywhere these days, with more coming. To ride the wave, however, a lot more understanding has to be brought on board. (Get it? Wave…board?) Winches that are designed to lift scenery, lighting or other heavy stuff is what we’re talking about. Please don’t confuse them with machines used for opening and closing curtains on traveler tracks. They are a whole different animal and… View this post
