STICKMAN SOUND  | June 2017

Hello sunshine and sunburns! I mean, we’ve been too busy to go out and enjoy it, but rumour has it that it’s getting hot in the desert.

If someone could provide a drum roll we have the announcement that we teased you with last month! We didn’t make you wait too long. It’s not like we drug it out over 4 episodes and left you at the end of the season with a cliffhanger. Big Announcement: We are now authorized to sell Sound Devices, Sennheiser and Tentacle Sync!!!!! We’ve had the items in our rental inventory for years, but now we can sell the same awesome products to the end user!! There have been a lot of happy dances (next time I’ll get them on video for facebook) and we are beyond thrilled to be able to offer sales along with rentals. So you know what else this means….stay tuned for more good news!!

While we were busy making deals with vendors, we decided it was time for the website to get a few improvements. Not that it wasn’t great before, but a little tweak here and a link inserted there really brought out our personality. The best part about the update is that our starter form is now just a click away! Now you can fill it out and get started on a project any time of the day or night and not be locked into our schedule to get things done. We know there are a lot of night owl’s out there and hopefully this will make things easier for all.

Featured Gear : Sennheiser MKE2 Elements Microphone for GoPro HERO4

Are you guys ready for a mic that makes a difference! If you need crisp audio in some sketchy places this is the way to go. Whether your snowboarding, surfing, biking, etc. this mic will not disappoint! Make sure you stop in and pick one up for yourself!

NAB | 2017

“Technology is evolving faster than humankind itself and we’re living in a world of our own invention. Behavior and business have merged to redefine content, workflows and revenue streams. It’s The M.E.T. Effect, a cultural phenomenon fueled by hybrid solutions and boundless connectivity that’s changing the very nature of how we live, work and play.”                                                                                            – NAB Show 2017


Thousands from the film and television community fled to fabulous Las Vegas this week for another eventful NAB 2017. The theme this year was The Met Effect, which focused on media, entertainment, and technology. From exhibits that featured first looks at some of the leading products in the industry to the interactive exhibits, I can promise you any technology enthusiast would of felt like a kid in a candy shop (like rafting down the chocolate river at Willy Wonka’s place).

Not only are there awesome gadgets at NAB, there are a lot of awesome people.  We shook hands, made dinner reservations, attended events, listened to speakers and made new BFFs.  Stickman has been branching out a bit and testing some different waters (all audio related!) and NAB was a great opportunity to meet new contacts and get our feet wet.  We don’t *want* to be those jerks that ask you to wait for some big news, but we are totally going to be those jerks!  If you want to be in the know before the newsletter hits, be sure to follow us on social media (it’s what the cool kids do) where Fern will most likely post to instagram or surprise you with a Facebook Live event.

Featured Gear : HandMic Digital

Sennheiser really knocked it out of the park with this bad boy. They describe it as;  A rugged dynamic handheld microphone, with high-quality internal signal converter and convenient handling: The HandMic digital is your companion for briliant interviews and ad hoc music recordings. We couldn’t agree more. We had the opportunity to test this at NAB and we were nothing short of impressed! We were able to plug this straight into the IPhone and the audio sounded great. Stickman will definitely be looking to get some of these in our shop very soon.
