just out of curiosty
gel companies... I go with Lee gels more in concert applications then Rosco. I love using Rosco in the theater.
Rosco gels. I don't really know why that is, but it is.
Lee sometimes has a better color, sometimes Rosco does, and other days GAM does. I use whichever one looks right...
rosco ,we buy through a stage supply company so i have no idea about service
I don't believe you can buy direct unless you're a distributor...
rosco is that they won't send me a free gel swatch!!!!
address. I'll send you a ROSCO gel book or I can give you a site where you can get lots of swatch books
Really?? I've got a collection of them from all the major dealers, just called and asked for a couple.
swatch book direct from rosco. asked by e-mail one day came the next day! great service
Their gels are the best (next to ROSCO) in my opinion and they aren't nearly as expensive as ROSCO.
So... If I am buying a gels that I know I will use in just about every show... I will spend the extra dollar and go with ROSCO, but if it a gel that I will only use for one show, then I will just go with GAM. Plus, GAM lets you order directly from them... so you don't have to go through a distrubiter...
GAM because I like how the swatch book is laid out. GAM's numbering system acutely makes sense, unlike LEE or ROSCO, whos numbering system has very little sense.
Gels are fairly cheep, so price isn't an issue, and there gels seem to be good and don't burn out horribly fast, so I am very happy with GAM.
However, it is a coke vs. pepsi type of question. There both good, it just depends whos colors you like better.
My thing is quality before price.
rosco website will send you almost anything except products (duh) for free,you have to put in all your vital information for everything though!
Rosco has a warehouse (it might also be their coprerate HQ not sure) here in my town. I take some middle school tech kids on tours through their sometimes and they show us all the products and stuff. They also help us out alot with "give aways" and when they dont give it away i can call and order through any company and pick it up at the rosco loading dock.
Rosco you should try Apollo. The colors match, it's cheaper, and you can order sheets pre-cut.
lee and rosco for the same price.
I use either one.
