Put the wood in the hole Bruce!

In the second stage of the slow taking over the empire by Showcomms, well our small office expansion, Bruce leant a hand to the positioning of a huge heavy oak door frame yesterday.

The nieghbouring room used to be our store/workshop. This has moved one unit down, and the original store/workshop is becoming a demonstration, meetin and training area.

At the moment it is causing a bit of disruption to the office (and a fair bit of cold air!).
The picture is taken from the office into where the new room is being fitted, Bruce (left) is helping to lift the door frame into hole that has magically appeared!

Showcomms gives you wings

It isn't usual to blog about hiring somebody just three headsets, but this one is just a little different and shows how we will go that extra mile to get a client out of trouble.
Last week we sent three DT108 headsets for use at the Red Bull Music Academy by Pulse Films.
Unfortunately, when they arrived they discovered a small error meant they had asked for male instead of female plugs, any easy mistake.
Bruce was going to be in the London Bridge area today, so decided to drop off some replacements himself this morning.
However we normally supply ASL headsets with female plugs, and Pulse wanted the extra noise exclusion of the DT108s. Our DT108s are fitted with male plugs for cameras and RTS, not female plugs.
Never mind, on Saturday Bruce got three bare ended DT108 cables out of our sales stock and fitted the right plugs to take up this morning and swap the cables.
This also means we can supply a few of our DT108s in future to use on ASL/Tecpro/Altair/Clearcom/Stonewood systems which require 4 pin female XLRs on the headsets.
