Xmas is coming! As we know sound guys are the most difficult people to buy for. Over the last few year I’ve posted some suggestions, here is day 1!
This came to my attention from the EEVBLOG https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETCOhzU1O5A love this guy.
It’s an awesome price for a very powerful little machine. Include probes and USB cable.
I’m so lucky to have such thoughtful family.
I know how difficult it is to shop for us sound guys.
I hope the ideas I’ve been sharing have been of inspiration to eager shoppers.
I thought I would share some of the ideas my family and friends came up with that I missed and appreciate as professional tools and inspiration to learn from!
Gear tie Flexible ties. I’ve never seen these! This things are very soft and wont scratch anything.
Maped pencils. These are awesome because they are orange and they are triangular. Very nice to work with!
I’m very protective of my hearing (and the family knows this).
I’m going on a trip this week and there will be swimming in the ocean. Aqua Ears!
Flex X-RAP Finger protection. I’ve never seen anything like this stuff. If you’re making a bunch of cables and want to move faster this is the ticket! http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=64762&cat=1,42207,64762
A KAZOO!!!! Because I’m easily entertained.
Happy holidays to everyone! You’re all an inspiration to me and mine! Keep the feedback coming!
I support the post office as much as I can. It’s a great service I would hate to see go away.
A long time ago I was informed of the venture one card. I saved 5% on shipping when you using venture one card.
They are free for all businesses, and you should have one! http://www.canadapost.ca/web/business/ventureone.page
If I’ve learned anything, it’s that: you can never have too many LA2As around the studio. In addition that, I know that each of the old ones is its own animal. For more information check out Universal Audio y
I totally forgot that 2015 happens after xmas…
Got a Call from Christopher today. “I do a lot of EDACs” I said. He said “what you really want is the CB37 Light Director Board“
And he was right.
Cable eye M3U would be my first choice
I cannot count the number of things I’ve cleaned in this thing. Seriously has saved me thousands of dollars in parts and time.
This isn’t something you see everyday. I know this is something he doesn’t have. I know it’s a gift he’ll truly enjoy.
