Unlike the MicroWedge's where I brought an already established product to EAW
and we then together we revamped and improved them, the MicroSubs are an all
new design and not really like anything else on the market.
One of my primary focuses since I have been home has been working with the
Rat Sound Sales department to streamline things and expand a bit. They have
been adding lots of new dealerships and such. After blogging about Fleabass
I got a really good response so the idea "Hey, why not have Rat Sound
sell the Fleabass?" It is all about working together with your friends
for a common goal of happiness for all and most importantly, doing so without
stepping on others along the way. So cool! We lined up Fleabass and a bunch
of other musical instruments from the same distributor.
Hey, if ya ever need anything sound, video, home theater, AV cables try giving
them a shout. Rat sells all kinds of gear at low margins and have no problem
beating prices if we can. Daniella and John Karr are super cool and we also
really take care of everyone. Here is a link to the current manufacturers Rat
So one of the many benefits of having all those dealerships is it gives me
access to get demo's of various bits of gear. For all you sound engineer humans
out there, I have decided to do some learning and testing on sealed ear headphones
in hopes of finding a a pair of live sound quality cans I can use and recommend
other than the discontinued Sony MDR CD3000's I have depended on for the past
15 years or so. Here are some of the ones I have been spending the last few
weeks listening to:
One of the things I highly recommend is for sound engineers to have a great
sounding pair of headphones to act as a reference point. My next blog post will
have a run down of what I have figured out.
Speaking of learning and figuring things out, I went back and did sound seminars
at Citrus College again.
It was the most challenging speaking gig yet. A 2 1/2 hour session to one
group, another 2 1/2 hours to another group on friday. Then on saturday, another
1 1/2 hours to each of the two groups followed by an hour with both groups together.
Nine hours, all through an interpreter (who was awesome by the way).
Meet the B group!
Fun though, I really enjoy doing it and really try to share some viewpoints,
knowledge and perspectives that is outside of what is normally taught.
That's about it for now, oh wait, I helps my shorties make Halloween costumes.
They wanted to be "Flight of the Conchords" robots. Here is Sammy
Now I am not much of a TV person but if you like Tenacious D, I highly recommend
you check out the series.
And as the days and nights slide by, between doing bits of this and that, the
ocean keeps rolling in. So here is C Street day and night pics.
