    Not Seen This Before, Have You?

    The theater where I just closed a show had a cable I’ve not seen before. A well respected community theater company near Philadelphia has a Leviton 7xxx system. The cables running to the dimmer packs looked like mike cables, but one end had a second XLR connector coming out, a Y connection...

    Not really storage wars. A friend who buys storage lockers on the side of working in theater recently purchased a 10x10 locker with a bunch of gear in it. This link is the link to the craigslist ad, where you can also get in contact with them...

    Removing Duck Tape off of lighting cables

    Evening everyone, While I was looking for lighting extension cables today, I found some cables that had a ridiculously, massive, and completely unnecessary amount of duct tape on them. I cannot express how wild that cable was. Fortunately, I found some clean cables I used instead. If there's...

    How do you mark your extension cords?

    How do you go about marking your extensions as your own without chopping off the plug, sliding on a heat shrink label, and putting a new plug on? I found these cable identifiers which seem to do the job perfectly, but they only go up to 3/8". I have a few heavy extensions that are larger in...

    Control/Dimming Best price on Multi/Soca cable?

I've always taken for granted that theses cables have been available but never put much thought into pricing, features, wire gauge, etc... Now that I'm the one in charge of these purchases I'd like...

    Suggestion on Projector gear

    Hello, I am putting together a package of projectors for our theater department. We are purchasing the Panasonic PT-RS11 laser projectors. We will be mounting these projectors to truss and in some cases batons. The projectors are fairly new and I am having trouble finding cases, mounts, cables...
