November 2017 Newsletter

We are smack-dab in the middle of the busiest time of the year and we haven’t even had any pumpkin spice. Our online store is launching in less than two weeks and we couldn’t be more excited. I mean, let’s be real, we’ve been waiting a really long time for this so the anticipation is killing us. The online store is a new experience for us so if you have any feedback we welcome it. We want to make shopping with Stickman as simple and as user friendly as possible so any suggestions would be appreciated!

Fernando is doing some traveling the next two months so we will get to keep you updated with a little game called, “Where in the world is Fernando Delgado.” Unfortunately, we’re not allowed to disclose all of his locations, but I’ll give you a hint: it’s hot and there’s is only one restaurant in the whole town! Sounds fun right!? Fernando will also be returning to Full Sail to jumpstart some of the festivities for Full Sail’s Hall of Fame.

Hockey Talk (or where Kristel sounds like the teacher from Peanuts):

While Fernando, Alberto, Zach and Craig have been working the home games, Kristel has been working on teaching people about the gloriousness that is the sport of hockey.  The Golden Knights were 8 and 1 before they went on the road trip and Kristel still blames The Octopus for that loss to Detroit.  The goalie situation has been a little hectic, but hopefully things will work out.  If not, we hope Stickman gets to help film open tryouts!  We are still very excited to be working with and supporting a Vegas home team and, for some of us, it still feels a bit surreal.  Please pardon our enthusiasm (or join us in it!) and, if you get Kristel talking about the game, just keep nodding your head and smiling.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Stickman Sound!

STICKMAN SOUND OCTOBER NEWSLETTER

 

Happy Halloween and hello fall! Where does the time go, seems like just last week we were fighting the 100 degree heat and hiding in air conditioned buildings. I think it’s safe to say we’re all ready for the leaves to change colors and our power bills to go down.

September was a fun month for us. We worked with HBO boxing for the Canelo vs. GGG fight. If you follow boxing at all you probably know this was a huge upset for a lot of fight fans when it ended in a draw. We were excited to be ringside for such a huge event. Hopefully you can find us in the same spot for the rematch.

Marcus and Fernando went to an awesome RF Clinic provided by Sennheiser at the House of Blues here in Las Vegas. The seminar focused on the use of multichannel wireless mics as well as wireless monitoring systems. We always feel like it’s time well spent when we have the opportunity to brush up on our skills.

We know we’ve been telling you all that we have big news coming, well it’s finally time for the big reveal. Stickman Sound will now have an online store. We still have items to add, but we decided we didn’t want to wait anymore. Keep an eye out on our social media to see when it will officially launch later this month.

Anyone else excited about the Vegas Golden Knights being undefeated this season?!?!  Be warned we have a hockey fanatic at Stickman and her main goal is to make sure the entire shop can define “icing” by the end of the season.  You will find Stickman and our unbridled enthusiasm in section 4 all season long, so when you make it to a game be sure to stop by and say hello.

Featured GEAR : Stickman Sound Equipment Packages

Whether you are doing a documentary focusing on one individual, a reality show with twenty plus contestants and 15 camera crews, a commercial, or a film shoot, we can design and build an equipment package that will not only meet your needs but will keep your show running smoother. Stickman can provide “run and gun” equipment packages as well as Fly Pack systems that can be built almost anywhere. Each project is unique in its own way and we specialize in making sure the design equipment package flows with the style of production you’re doing.

All of our gear is tested and assembled in our shop before going out into the field.  Stickman builds each kit specifically for every project and we pride ourselves on how we deliver our gear.  We also provide support for our equipment so if there are any issues we aim to solve them as swiftly as possible.

 

September 2017 Newsletter

STICKMAN SOUND SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER

 

   Hello friends and fellow audio connoisseurs! We hope this past month has been a good one for you all. Stickman started August off with a bang as Fernando went to Chicago, to spend 4 days in Grant Park for the popular music festival, Lollapalooza. Unfortunately, what we were doing there is still under wraps so you’re going to want to follow us on social media and look out for our upcoming newsletters to find out.

If music festivals aren’t for you, how about some good old fashion boxing? The much anticipated Mayweather vs. McGregor  fight took place and Stickman Sound had a front row seat at history in the making. Loading in days before the actual event, everyone was on top of their game to make sure viewers at home received the best live audio there was to offer. It’s always exciting to be a part of such big events!

DPA made their way to the Stickman Shop this month for a day of education and networking. We had an awesome group of individuals get together for this event. We owe Eric Stahlhammer from DPA a huge thank you for sharing so much information! It’s always exciting to learn new things with such a dedicated group of people. We look forward to hosting more learning opportunities like this in the future.

We hope September is a great month for everyone.
