Behringer - in stock, X32 Compact, X32, and S16 snakes!

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

We have them - all in stock, for sale, new in the box, and at the same price as the big stores that are allowed to sell them online. 

Virtually all authorized Behringer dealers are prohibited to feature Behringer products on their websites, let alone to offer you the option to "Buy it Now" or to "Add to Cart".

Right now, we have the brand new X32 Rack, the X32 Compact, the X32 Producer, the X32, and the S16 snakes in stock for immediate shipment, but you have to call us to place your order. 

As a bonus, we'll even set your console up with our free migration service.  Buy any X32 (with or without S16 snake modules) and we'll set up your console for you and give you two hours of one-on-one tech support (on site if in the Columbus, Ohio area) free. 

We think that's service that you'll like (and it's way beyond what other dealers offer); just send us your input list and we'll get started.  And our prices are the same as the other guys.  We just can't tell you what those prices are, unless you call.  So call (800) 747-7301.  We'll both be glad you did!

 

Think Different

by Mike Sessler, ChurchTechArts.org

From what I can gather, one of the traits of most successful people is the ability to try new things. Ability may be the wrong word—we all have the ability to try new things. Perhaps the word I’m looking for is desire. I love to try new things. I’m always on the lookout for some new technology, process, idea, whatever. Along the way, I’ve made some fantastic discoveries.

Sadly, I have also had many conversations that go somewhat like this.

Other Person: So, what kind of PA are you putting in your room?

Me: Bose RoomMatch. We’re pretty excited about it.

OP: Oh, I would never mix on one of those. Terrible.

Me: Really? Have you ever mixed on it?

OP: No.

Me: Have you ever heard it?

OP: No.

Me: Have you even looked into the technology behind it?

OP: No. Bose=bad. That’s all I know.

Usually, all I can say at that point is, “Huh.” Now, we all have our biases. We all have things we know that we generally like. Given the choice, I’d probably choose a Heil mic over another most of the time. But if someone shows up with a new mic I’ve not used before, I’ll give it a shot. In fact, that’s how I discovered Heil. I had never heard of them five years ago, but someone showed up with a box full, and we gave them a try.

Try New Things

Alton Brown used to say, “Play with your food!” I tend to agree. Try new things. You never know what’s going to happen. Just because you’ve been doing something the same way for the last 10 years doesn’t mean it’s the best way. Talk to someone else and see if you can learn something from them.

I’m convinced that one of the reasons our stage is so efficient is because I’ve stolen ideas from a lot of smart people over the last 10 years. Every time I visit a church or talk with another TD, I try to pick out something that I can learn from them. It’s amazing how much you will know if you just talk with other people.

Spring Clearance - Part 1

It's time to make room in the warehouse!  For the next few weeks, we'll pick a line and offer clearance deals on specific in-stock products.  All are limited quantities, some are discontinued (but new with full warranty). 

This week, it's Line 6 and Sanyo.  We have a handful of items that are fully new, fully warranted, and that we're offering huge discounts on.  We have digital mixers, wireless microphone systems, subwoofers, and video projectors. 

All at the lowest prices you'll find anywhere - for new equipment sold by an authorized dealer. 

What we have are the following - prices are limited to these quantities only.  Prices include freight.

Bose L1 Compact - perfect portable PA system

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Could there be a more polarizing company in the universe of audio than Bose?  Bose's marketing slogan is "Better Sound Through Research".  Critics have restated that as "Better Sound Through Marketing" and have derided the product with chants of "No Highs, No Lows, must be Bose."  Frankly, I like Bose products, in general, and have wondered what I've been missing that others have found so easy to dislike.  Sure, they've had some dud products, but so has every other manufacturer on the planet. 

Let me introduce you to the Bose L1 Compact by telling you my story.  Several months ago, our Bose sales rep dropped off the L1 Compact and left it.  He said "Just try it someplace, and I think that you'll like it."  A week went by, and then another, and then two more.  I hadn't touched it, and I knew that he'd want it back.   Plus, I had given my word that I'd try it. 

At the church I attend, we were planning an outdoor service to dedicate our community garden and I had been asked to make sure that we had a sound system capable of accommodating both acoustically-flavored live music and the spoken word for about 150 people outdoors.  And any of you who don't have a dedicated portable sound system at your church (and who know what a pain it is to round up a system in order to take something outside) will appreciate what I'm about to write. 

I had spent the better part of two hours going down to church, looking through the youth system, the main system extra gear, even the old gear, and thinking about how to get the system outside while still being ready inside for the regular service.  That day, I would be the lone sound technician for both locations and there wasn't another experienced tech to be found, even to carry a speaker.  Thinking about what might have been unassisted set-up and tear-down, I was a little bit stressed and maybe a tad bit grumpy.  Maybe.  Most of you have probably never felt that way. 

Then it dawned on me.
