DECEMBER 2013 : NEWS

As a very busy 2013 draws to a close we take a backwards look at where we’ve been, what we’ve accomplished, and where we’re headed in the upcoming New Year.

This year has proved to be a whirlwind of change, expansion, and growth for Gear Connection as an organization.  As you may already know, we launched a complete re-branding campaign that not only included a new logo and collateral materials, but also a new interactive website and social media integration.  Our constantly growing equipment inventory has been enhanced with many new additions with particular focus on expansion in HD & Broadcast Video capabilities.  And as of the date of this Newsletter, we have successfully completed over 120 events for the year, being privileged once again to provide our technical services for a wide range of clients, performers, dignitaries, and VIP’s. 

We’ve had a fantastic season of musical shows.  From intimate performances with LeAnn Rimes and Kristin Chenoweth, to massive outdoor festivals with the likes of Maclemore & Lewis, Travis Barker, Brett Michaels, Rehab, & Jason Derulo.  In addition, we were a part of many high profile events that featured political figures like Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hillary Clinton, General David Petraeus, and Pres. Vicente Fox.  Our ever-growing Corporate and Institutional clients also relied heavily on us this year as the size and scope of many recurring events grew and allowed for expansion into new and exciting technologies.

Looking forward to 2014 we are poised to continue and expand our role as a premier full service technical event production company in Southern California by maintaining our focus on pre-production planning and heavy client involvement in the execution of an event or concert.  And while the basic focus for Gear Connection was (and still is) providing state-of-the-art audio services, we as a company plan to continue expanding by also providing full lighting, video, and staging services.

We greatly value our relationships with our clients and appreciate sincerely that you’ve made us your “Go-To” source for Audio, Video and Lighting.  If you have any upcoming production needs before the end of the year please reach out and let us know how we can help.  The Gear Connection team wishes you a happy and healthy holiday season.  See you in 2014!



DECEMBER 2013 : LATEST GEAR

The DT-PRO5200 Goliath Studio stand is the new standard of the industry in terms of safety and quality.  A “ready to use” reliable and maintenance free product, each section is automatically secured providing excellent stability without any cables or winches that often tend to fail.  These new stands feature an ingenious direct drive, rack and pinion design which offers greater lifting power and a lighter weight along with fewer maintenance issues.  Despite being made with light weight aluminum components, the DT Goliath-Studio stands are capable of some very heavy lifting and can lift up to 5 meters, an impressive and unique achievement for any stand in this weight class. These hard working stands also offer an unprecedented level of safety, thanks to their special auto break system.
