Greetings Kids !
We hope you are doing well and enjoying the beginning of the holiday season.
It’s been busy for us so far this Fall and it looks like it’s just going to keep chugging along.
Here at Tour Supply we’re always looking for innovative new products and cool new ways to use them. For example, recently we’ve had clients asking our rig builders to make ultra compact pedalboards for one off gigs and fly dates. We had AFW cases make us these great little pedal boards that can slide conveniently into the Pelican U140 backpack.
Configure your board
Throw it in your backpack
Off you go!
Put your perfect flyboard together now!
We recently started working with Gruv Gear, a great company here in Southern
California that specializes in innovative products for creative professionals. We had been asked to get Fret Wraps string muters for a customer of ours and discovered that Gruv Gear carries a wide variety of useful tools. Check out the Muver series of equipment carts and their unique bags and cases all designed to make life easier for you on the gig. Call us for availability.
Get to your nearest Tour Supply and try Fret Wraps out.
Please take a look theWireless Frequency Finder link from our friends at Shure. Bookmark it and make life easier at your next show by simply typing in the address of the venue and the Shure wireless systems you are using. It will give a list of usable wireless bands and channels for the area you’re in. Very handy indeed.
Finally we at Tour Supply would like to thank all of you for your support and we will do our best to continue to give you the kind of service you expect and deserve.
From Our family to Yours, Have a Very Happy Thanksgiving.
Greetings from Tour Supply!
We’re going to jump right in to some cool new product demos and some interesting pics of stuff we’ve been up to.
We just received our first batch of Matrix GT800FX power amps in and we couldn’t be happier with their performance.
Taking up only one rack space and weighing a hair over eight pounds they are designed to bring out the most in the new generation of modeling amps and fit easily into one of our
Pelican fly racks.
Our shop in Nashville has been pretty excited about the 4E Dual Axis Expression Pedal by DB Instrument Amp.
As the name implies, you can use two different axes to control up to four different effects at once. Now you can get all the functionality of two expression p
edals while only taking the the space of one.
Another product that we’re marveling at is the amazing Korg SDD3000 delay pedal.
Long a favorite of the Edge, the original SDD3000 rackmount delay had a distinctive tone due to a preamp section that gave it it’s warm, slightly saturated sound. All of that has been recaptured in the new pedal. It is contollable via midi and also via it’s onboard footswitches.
Come on down and try it out.
Below is a shot of a case our own Larry Martin had made and delivered to Sir Paul McCartney for his show at Dodger stadium.
Working with AFW Cases, Larry was able to create a design, get it manufactured and delivered to the show in an amazingly small amount of time.
Till next time, stay safe out there.
Greetings from Tour Supply!
We’re gearing up for a busy Spring and stocking up on all of your touring essentials over here:
We at Tour Supply’s secret research facility recently came across an informative read. This is an interesting article about in-ear monitor wireless reception brought to us by the fine people at RF Venue. It’s a short and sweet overview of high gain helical antenna and RF in-ear principles that could be helpful to you in the field.
Finally check out the “What is Tour Supply” video shot by Cooper Carter. It’s a great look at some of what we we do and some of the people that do it here at Tour Supply.
That’s all for now.
Until Next Time – Stay Safe and All the Best,
Tour Supply, Inc.
I hope you are all doing well and have fully recovered from the NAMM show.
I want to thank everyone that came out to our Pre Namm party at Third Encore. Attendees got a chance to see some of what our Playback Control System can do along with a display of Shure’s impressive Axient and PSM1000 technologies, Fractal Audio’s Axe FXII and innovative case designs by AFW and Pelican. It was a great chance to hang with you and we’re looking forward to seeing you all again at next year’s event.
In an ongoing effort to serve you better we’re unveiling our “Give Us Your List” program. You have enough to deal with as you travel the country (or the world) and we’re here to help. Send your list of gear and expendable needs ahead of when you get to your pre production rehearsals, one off or TV appearances and we’ll get it together for you when and where you need it. Coming to either Los Angeles, Nashville or New York? Give us your list before you get there and one of our offices in those cities will make sure it’s ready. It’s that easy.
This Month’s employee spotlight is on Patrick Fallon.
Patrick has a great working knowledge of the recording and engineering side of things having come to us from Dark Horse Recording Studio and from attending Full Sail University for Recording Arts and Music Business. He’s been with us since 2010 and is also a singer/guitarist. Patrick is a self described concert junkie and vinyl enthusiast. Sorry ladies he is married and lives in Fairview with his wife and two dogs.
That’s all for this month.
All the best, stay safe,
