Classes

Small to larger systems available for everything from single mic setups to outdoor gigs.
I'm also available for operation of your PA, or we can supplement your gear with mine.
For a full live sound setup that includes remic'ing, the *minimum* time from start of load-in to start of first set is 2hrs firm; additional time is required for a sound check.

Additionally, I offer equipment repair and/or analysis and adjustment of fixed installations such as churches and nightclubs, or I can help you optimize your band's system at your rehearsal place or gig.
I also do onsite audio instruction and training so you or your sound tech(s) can have you sounding your very best through your system because you have a better understanding of how it all works.

I'm available Tues, Thurs, Sat and Sun pm - MWF w advance notice.

Documentation, etc I've created for my current Sunday am gig, including notes on all fixes and modifications (2 pages!), gear I'm loaning, function-specific cables made, etc :

Audio Production Classes I teach, based on classes I taught as an associate professor:
Live Sound
Recording
('Recording' may still contain some dead links; WIP...)

I do electronic/mechanical repairs (musical gear, mics, headphones, cables, mic stands, etc ...) for $40/hour, 15 minute minimum. (Replacing an XLR connector on a mic cable might take me 20-30 minutes, including diagnosis). I'm an electronics technician by degree and resume, and I've done mil-spec soldering in the past, so no worries about workmanship. I charge what I pay for connectors, etc.

I can make a power adapter / charger / supply for your pedals, wireless receiver, rack gear, camera, cell phone, whatever. I can put the right connector (w the correct polarity, when applicable) on the right AC-AC or AC-DC adaptor.
Prices start at $15, depending on power and connector needed, as adaptors for over 750mA are more expensive...
