We are a sound system based DJ or Live Ban PA partnership that brings much technical previous experience to what is an emerging market for our services due to changes in the widespread popularity of outdoor public address concert events. It became obvious to us us that paying per quote to help plan weddings where there are many other specialized and established DJ/MC specialists that we were in the wrong virtual world, so we chose to delist our yellow pages, close our $20 bid and monthly subscription and go with Gigmasters. Yes, we are new here so can't benefit from referrals on Gigmaster, but that does not mean that we are not highly sensitive to the desire and needs to provide a reliable entertainment with no regrets. Besides being able to set up indoor or outdoor stacks of speakers and electrical / mixer / sound buss processor stacks, we have a huge collection of vintage music from never heard elsewhere. As a partnership we have an extremely deep and broad capability for set and studio art works.
When talking with us, you will get the impression sometimes that we are almost audiophile or tube amp hi fidelity people who still spin vinyl. But that is just what happens when the consciousness that forms our consciousness into physical forms comes from knowing amplification technology as a science and an art. A long history of rebuilding and repairing guitar amplifiers - for instance class AB that can do both Hi-FI low power Class A OR lapse into overdriven tube distortion Class B is used by all well know guitar artists. We know today's needs through advancements. Trade names were the past, Quality in top to bottom system design is the NOW. For example, watches used to be sold by how many jewels they had, heavily brand name biased to protect the value, but technology improved and changed that. Now, we wonder what we were thinking by assigning such ethereal property as if the words used to describe the way the function is achieved were actual hardware and not just funny phrases that jog our desire to try it out.
From a simple setup to a complete stack of JBL's we can do it, with very efficient Class-D and lots of internal output filtering as used by movie theaters today due to the operating cost advantage to vintage solid state amplifiers or well respected workhorse big stereo units, these also are options. No matter what you would likely hear a mix of many such interfaces as well as vocal specific or instrument specific signal chains. Not your everyday DJ.
Some favorite branded names we use include Tascam, Furman, Symetrix, JBL, Waves, TAD, Crown, Behringer, RCA, Bose, Soundcraftsman, Denon, Hafler, Qsc, Stromberg Carlson, McIntosh, Manley, Webster Electric, Teeco, Halicrafters, Western Electric, Brentwood, Femco, Altec Lansing, Kustom, and others that match our 'more Meat than Potatoes' approach to sound.
Ribbon Microphones: RCA - all types from original Hollywood Movie low Z RCA designed to compete with very HIGH impedance Electrovoice V1 that dominated at that time (We have the V1 and special HiZ amp as well) up through the 44BX, 44A, PB series (as noted), 77DX, 74, the studio ribbon series, and examples from Amperex, Universal, Film Industries and even more than a few examples of unknown manufacture. Vintage prized boom stands Our sound bar or workstation of choice is Steinberg, with overclocked processor and XP/Win7 because of advantages in recording in the studio licenses and compatibility, which we also have available as a virtual sound vocal booth and we therefore specialize in Mid-Side stereo remastering of track information, digital or tape based. However, you may well see an Avid with Black Lion sound card which unlocks the potential to serve up Pro Toos software based DSP's and VST virtual instruments or MIDI instrumentation systems. Tape Reels Tascam 2 inch, 1/2 (4,8 track) 1/4 synchro Teac.
All our speaker cabinets combine advanced frequency crossover controls that we design and build ourselves. No expense is spared. You get the finest compression drivers, ribbon tweeters, even custom specified custom order JBL voice coils, and we pack in other vintage speakers from Gauss, Fane, ElectroVoice, Altec Lansing, and a set of 21 inch P-AUDIO that REALLY get down to bass business!
Our basic Rider (Equipment list) includes lighting, Midas mixer, subwoofers (10 inch JBL or 21 inch P-Audio) microphone and MP3. We actually supply more, such as 8500 Wolfdale (64 bit Core 2) with ceramic DVD and solid state paging DDR3 and/or overclocked laptop, full video / editable data DJ software and too much more to say. Buy by request we can supply MUCH more AMP/Speaker/Preamp like Vacuum Tube Logic (Manley Labs) and compressor expander bass phasing rack sets and upholstered PA for a High Art Deco look.
