Location Sound Equipment

As of 2020, after eight years of using my Nomad as my daily driver, I have added a new Zaxcom Nova to my bag. This is the newest compact 16 channel recorder on the market with built in wireless recievers. This allows a compact package with greater wireless integration, allowing me to more easily provide exceptional digital wireless in a compact and lightweight package.

New as of 2019 are a set of Zaxcom ZMT wireless sets. The Zaxcom all digital recording allows for crisp wireless transmission and the built-in recorder functionality means I will never miss a line from radio interference. My rig is powered by the Audioroot eSmart Distribution System with Inspiron Energy Rechargeable Batteries to keep my system running throughout the day.

I’m always buying new gear and upgrading various bits so check back here every now and then.
