  1. Proaim strike again... this time with a copy of the Nebtek. Shameless. If you hear anyone considering buying one of their carts on this group or on a social media group please encourage them not to do so. Better yet, suggest they buy it from the original manufacturer. Thanks again for your support.
  2. How about this for a solution? More photo’s available at www.instagram.com/soundcart
  3. Yes, Rob has decided to retire and is looking for someone local to take up the baton.
  4. Well Proaim Global are up to their old tricks this time with two of my carts, the Production Sound Cart and the MiniCart. Of course you get what you pay for! Despite how clever they think they are, they don't appear to be able to work out the correct way to mount the handle!? The support of the sound community, as ever, is hugely appreciated.
  5. For my DCHR’s is use these https://www.hawkwoods.co.uk/Cine/P/VL-CA4X https://www.hawkwoods.co.uk/Cine/P/RMB-14 https://www.betso.eu/sbox-1n-nylon-pouch
  6. Not at all. The U.K. introductory price is £675+VAT and delivery. Please contact your nearest dealer for a price in your local currency. The accessories are listed at https://store.SOUNDCART.audiothese include boom holders, cup holders etc. Maverick specific accessories such as fold out tables etc. will be uploaded in the coming weeks.
  7. Thanks. Yeah mine won’t be like that. It will fold down to and lock up so no parts need to be removed or stored separately.
  8. I’m not familiar with the PSC “waky arm”. Any chance of a photo?
  9. I’m proud to show share photos of the first Maverick off the production line! The Maverick has been designed primarily as a follow/utility cart although is also ideal for sound mixers finding themselves working in a small crew. It features a light-weight aluminium frame (just 11.3kg / 25lbs), a recessed work area at the top, a handle that doubles as an antenna riser, 12″ rear wheels and a generous storage area that can be easily customised. Optional storage boxes (400x300mm Euro Containers / Festool Systainer storage system) are widely available from third parties in a variety of heights and configurations (with/without lids or locks and colours etc.) to enable a Sound Mixer to customise their cart. My range of optional universal accessories are also compatible. I recommend ‘Euro Containers’ and ‘System Boxes’ by AUER (www.auer-packaging.com) who have world-wide distribution. For further details visit www.soundcart.audio/maverick and contact your local dealer (www.soundcart.audio/dealers) for availability and local pricing. Let me know any accessories you’d be interested in. A folding side tray and adjustable clips to hold a mixer bag on the top, inserts for the base and sides are already in development.
  10. Sounds like the MiniCart MAX (www.soundcart.audio) might be what you are looking for.
  11. It has been a while since I posted here. After doing a short presentation to some of you (sorry Jeff I only realised it was you after the Zoom chat had ended) fine folk the other week (via Zoom) I thought I would update you with some photos of the final MiniCart MAX cart. If you have ever wanted a cart that you can mix either stood up or sitting down then this is perfect for you. Hope you enjoy the photos.
  12. Check out the many photos on Instagram for inspiration.... https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/soundcart https://www.instagram.com/soundcart
  13. This week saw the launch of the new SOUNDCART.audio website. Although the Accessories Page is still under development, it features many new photos and details about the range of cart and accessories available. Please visit www.soundcart.audio for further details.
  14. Arne, I use aluminium profile to construct the frames of my carts (www.instagram.com/soundcart). If you read and adhere to the detailed information provided by the manufacturer you will be able to construct a very strong cart. Pay attention to the types of fasteners available as not all are equal! Some can loosen over time so read up!! Many aluminium profile manufacturers offer CAD files. If you have the time to teach yourself CAD design first you’ll be able to design your cart before any costly mistakes in the real world!
  15. I asked them last year about the possibility and I'm aware of a prototype existing so it is possible. Sadly they have told me there are no plans for this to happen as they are working on other products. Very short sighted in my opinion. I think they'd sell rather well.
  16. Hi, Anyone modified a RF Venue 4Zone (https://www.rfvenue.com/products/4-zone) to function on 12v DC rather than AC? Alternatively, anyone know of a product that does the same but on 12v DC? Cheers Matt
  17. I’m not an Ambient lockit user (I’m firmly in the TimeCode Systems camp) but they should be praised for product innovation. I like the concept. It doesn’t fit the workflow of the majority of my work which is PSC/ENG based. However I can see the commercial and film boys liking it. Any my other new products?
  18. These are now listed on the Trew Audio website at just $1,300.
  19. Announcing the official launch of our new cart model, the EXPLORER. The U.K. RRP price will be £875+VAT however there will is an introductory price of £775+VAT (£100 SAVING!!) available for the first 10 orders received. Dimensions: 1190mm x 575mm x 550mm (HxWxD). Spec: 2x non-sliding height adjustable shelves (optional sliding shelf and additional 19” rack shelf available soon), 3u Rack adapter, Boom Holder, Antenna Riser & Clamps. Further details / photos available at www.facebook.com/soundcart F.A.Q. Q. Can I stand and mix? A. Yes absolutely, thanks to its fully height adjustable shelves it is easy to set a comfortable working height to stand and mix at. Q. Will a sliding tray be available? A. Yes, a prototype sliding shelf has already been developed and tested. Pricing and availability will be announced next week. Q. Can I purchase more shelves? A. Yes, additional shelves will be available. Pricing and availability will be announced next week. Q. What weight can the shelves carry? A. The shelves have been tested to 12kg so will accept even the heaviest of bags. Q. What accessories are available? A. The majority of our Universal accessory range can be added to the EXPLORER such as script holder, tablet holder, headphone holder, cup holder etc. Q. Will there be a waterproof cover be available? A. Yes, a waterproof cover is in development for the EXPLORER. Available hopefully in Q2 2018. Q. Do the shelves fold? A. No, the EXPLORER's shelves do not fold. If you require folding shelves take a look at our MiniCart model. Q. What size wheels does EXPLORER use? A. Front: 6" Casters with foot operated brakes. Rear: 10" Pneumatic for a cushioning ride and great stability. Q. How does EXPLORER ship? A. To keep the price as low as possible, EXPLORER is supplied flat pack with detailed instructions and tools to assist you to assemble the cart quickly and easily. Ideal for those that travel! Q. How is the EXPLORER different to other carts on the market? A. The EXPLORER was designed from the ground up as a low-cost, stable, light-weight, purpose built sound cart (not an adaption of another product). Like our other models the EXPLORER is extremely customisable (adjustable shelves, install accessories in multiple positions, wide range of optional accessories etc.) to compliment your workflow not impose one on you. Q. Will I quickly outgrow the EXPLORER? A. EXPLORER enjoys a wide range of accessories and optional extras that should prevent the need to upgrade for many many years. Q. What is EXPLORER made from? A. Mostly tubular aluminium extrusion making the cart both light-weight and strong.
  20. A gifted cart designer and an inspiration to us all. I’ve regrettably never had the pleasure of seeing one of his carts in person but his reputation for attention to detail and expertise preceded him. My condolences to his family and friends.
  21. To celebrate our 2nd Anniversary next month (March 2018) we will be launching a new model. Below are some CAD impressions and photos of the prototype. Model name and price $TBC. For further details, please visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/soundcart
  22. I don't think it is an accident that it only outputs Tape Level.
