I am a Set Designer/Technical Director/Lighting Designer/Sound tech. Jack of all...master of none you could say. I have always been used to working with altman instruments. I recently took a job as a technical director/lighting instructor for a high school that has a beautiful new theatre facility but has a whole brand new house full of strand instruments. I find them a bit more cumbersome in some ways but easier in others (like changing lamps). What are your feelings about this???
