Hey, I was browsing around looking for places where I might throw up questions about some Carvin equipment I'm looking at (post under Sound Questions forum) and came upon this lovely site. Man I wish I'd known about this place when I was a freshman in High School. Now that I graduate at the end of this year I've learned most of the important stuff the hard way. The hard, and sometimes very painful way. I run sound one to two nights a week guaranteed for my church's Jr. and Sr. High Youth Groups, and do so on one of crappiest installs I've ever seen. I have experience in most tech areas, from Lights to Sound to Video. I also work as a paid technician for community shows at my High School's auditorium/theatre facility. That place has one of the crappiest lighting installs I've ever seen. Some of my friends and I are starting a production company where we put on concerts around our area and that's got some incredibly good prospects. If you live in the Seattle/Tacoma/Enumclaw area in Washington and you see a flyer touting a concert put on bv Fallen State Productions, come and check it out. We promise that the sound will be better than last time.
