Hello KitSplit,

I'm a writer, producer and one man sound department on a lot of indie and professional projects.

Always trying to make stuff, but when I'm not, I just sit here on my throne of mixers and microphones. Now this gear can be yours! (Note: Not all equipment has been sat on)

Sound Devices 633 6-channel Mixer/10-Channel Recorder

Includes: sony l-series battery (x2), 2 TA-3 cables, Stingray Jr. Audio Bag

More

INCLUDES

  • sony l-series battery (x2)
  • 2 TA-3 cables
  • Stingray Jr. Audio Bag
  • Sound Devices 633 Mixer/Recorder
  • Timecode Cable

OWNER NOTES

This is my favorite. It's relatively light, super compact and will make you sound like the Metatron himself. Allows for 6 active inputs and can mix to 10 channels. Has silent preamps and great meta-data editing. This is a professional grade mixer.

Less than a year old, in excellent shape. Comes with 2 Sony L-series batteries which can allow for up to 2-days of run time if managed well.

Additional cables/memory cards can be provided if necessary. Fits well in the Stingray Jr. Bag (included).

All of my listings come with a small tutorial to make sure you'll get the audio you deserve.

Want the whole kit? I have it listed, save time and money by adding a microphone and 4 lavs.

Sanken CS3e Shotgun Microphone

Includes: XLR cable, Boom Pole, Shockmount

More

INCLUDES

  • XLR cable
  • Boom Pole
  • Shockmount

OWNER NOTES

This microphone is amazing. It has excellent reach (You can be about 10 feet away and hear your target very well) and focus (You can run next to a busy street and get the dialogue cleanly).

Ask any professional sound guy and they'll have one of these in their kits at least as a backup mic because of how well it works in any situation. It also can easily be your main mic as it picks up some great vocal quality. My favorite mic I own.

I also have a rode blimp system that can be added for a small fee.

Senny G3 lavs

INCLUDES

  • Enloop Pro Rechargable AA batteries
  • Countryman b3 Lavalier Microphone

OWNER NOTES

Pretty good shape, works reliably. Have the me-2 kit mic as well as a far superior countryman b3. Countryman mic has a nice boomy sound and is a little smaller than the kit mic. Will provide with 4 NiMh rechargable batteries and a charger per unit, which should last you all day long.

Block the wind with a Rode Blimp

Includes: Rode Blimp, Wind Guard

More

INCLUDES

  • Rode Blimp
  • Wind Guard

OWNER NOTES

A blimp windshield system for most shotgun microphones. Built on a rycote shock mount it is a good topper for your boom pole or good for handheld. Comes with a dead wombat (which if you aren't a sound person is a fur coat for the blimp that you use if it's super windy out). Comes with an XLR cable of your choice.

All of my gear comes with a quick primer course on how to use it to get the most out of it if you want.

OWNER NOTES

This is a perfect kit for your production on a budget, it will give you quality sound and is easy to use.

Features the Tascam DR-70D 4-channel mixer recorder, a couple of very reliable Sony UWP lavaliers with Countryman B3 microphones and the Sanken CS3e microphone, one of the best run and gun mics on the market.

This kit will give you three channels of 24bit/96Khz recording (24/48khz recommended for speech) and is ideal for man on the street interviews, documentaries or indie film making.

If you're looking for a little more firepower, check out my advanced kit with a sound devices mixer and an extra two lavaliers. I also do lavaliers, boom and mixers separately on this site to build your own kit adventure.

Disposables such as tape and moleskin can be included for an extra $5.

With everything I rent, I give a short tutorial on how to use it to make sure you walk away with the quality sound you deserve. This kit also comes with a $50 voucher for Sound Reasoning's top drawer Audio Mixing.

If you need an audio operator, don't be afraid to ask.

Go out and make your vision come to life!

Excellent with all bits and bobs available. Maximilian had almost everything I needed in this kit, and was able to supply much-appreciated extras. Fantastic sounding microphone and lavs!

While this item wasn't available, Maximilian did provide another set of lavs, which were just as great! He also took the time to show me how to use them and let me do a practice run. Will rent from him again!

Max/Sound Reasoning was great. He was in my 'hood and could rent me the light when I needed it and we coordinated perfect pickup and dropoff times. 100% satisfied.

Powerful lights!

Cool guy. 10/10 will rent again

Great Guy!

Quick and professional, but slightly difficult to reach him in order to return the gear.

Max was very careful about making sure every element was working and ready to use. And he gave a brief very clear demo. The equipment is all in perfect working order. Great rental!
