    Thank you Jeff Wexler for another year of jwsound !

    My annual donation just went through – thanks for maintaining JWSOUND Jeff, I would be nowhere (production sound-wise) without this forum.

    Large image uploads are also failing for me right now. Just tried.

    One of the odd limitations of this site is that file uploads are capped at ~3.5 MB, might be that. 😕

    I too always wonder about my baby… Welcome to the forum! Curious what your phone situation is in your bag there, don’t think I’ve seen one mounted like that. Can barely make it out – bent metal plate, magnetic phone case, and a Betso TCX-2 underneath?

    Sanken Distributor issues

    Negotiate for a price match! At least in my experience, the kind folks at my production sound dealer (Second City Sound) have done so without much hesitation.

    Rechargeable Batteries for TX

    Reporting back about the Storacell battery holders: My batteries are still intact after six months. It’s true that at first, the “teeth” that hold the batteries from falling out made little creases on battery casings. But I found that I could soften their grip by storing batteries part-way out of the holder for a few months. Pretty happy with them and recently bought a few more from Storacell. The local IKEA store finally stocks LADDA batteries.

    Zaxcom ZMT3-Flex.

    @glenn: Is the battery removable or integrated? And what kind of battery does it use? The info I’ve seen so far has been unspecific.

    Zaxcom ZMT3-Flex.

    Hot off Zaxcom’s Twitter account, a wireless transmitter/recorder for sports applications. Features include mono/stereo transmission (with two Microdot mic inputs), timecode-enabled recording, NeverClip, and ZaxNet. It weighs 3 oz/85 g, transmits with power up to 75 mW, and available info at this time points to a removable, non-standard, lithium-ion battery. The body of the transmitter can bend, definitely making it a competitor to the Q5x PlayerMic. Prices are around $2500 USD as of writing.

    Betso customer support.

    From the Black Friday thread, I got two conflicting reports about the state of Betso’s customer support. Texas-based @noelmdfw says: Conversely, London-based @gareth john says: I’m a little concerned now that I own TCX-2’s. Betso not having a service center/partner near me wasn’t a concern until now. Do any other Betso owners (and perhaps distributors who wish to share) have any complaints regarding the company’s support?

    Black Friday Sales 2018.

    I’m officially in the Betso ecosystem with two TCX-2+ boxes thanks to that deal. No longer have to deal with my F4’s less reliable timecode, looking forward to buying their slate down the road.

    Black Friday Sales 2018.

    Offers from Amazon’s Pelican sale, Avid, and Pinknoise end today. Offers from Bubblebee Industries, Gotham Sound, Second City Sound, and Sound Devices end tomorrow (November 26, 2018). Very tempted by that Pelican sale.

    Black Friday Sales 2018.

    Someone in the LocationSound community on reddit mentioned a “$1k CMIT” but didn’t offer any details. Probably not real, but in case it is, has anyone found this offer? ❤️ @drpro Also, not a strictly sound-related item, but the Brother P-touch PT-D210 label maker is going for $10.00 USD (from $30.00 USD) on Amazon. It’s Wirecutter’s top pick.
