I will be attending from Concord... Is there anyone in my area that is going that either needs a ride or that I could follow so I don't get lost? I have a Hyundai Genesis Coupe that can carry stuff to the show if needed too.

I'd like to hear your Mets. I remember the 8" Hemptone Mets from the 1st Burning Amp. They captivated the audience in the firehouse. IIRC they were powered a tube amp built in an upside down basting pan... They sounded really good!!!

I'll be attending and can volunteer to help set up, too.

Looking forward to it!

Cheers,

David

I have a couple. However, they are hardwired, not wireless and they are XLR needing power.

The LIS folks who are videotaping the talks should have a wireless lapel mic (or at least they did last year), but I am not sure if they are set up to split the feed. Maybe they can run it through your system first?

A handheld mic would be a good idea as a backup.

INFO - ROOM ASSIGNMENTS - WHERE TO FIND BA - TICKETS

There will not be any signage at Fort Mason that will help you find Burning Amp, so please pay attention to the following information about HOW TO FIND BURNING AMP AT FORT MASON.

MAPS
I have attached two maps. Please look at them
  • One shows the lower Fort Mason complex with the Firehouse and Building C circled in red. These are the two spaces that we will be using this year. Please familiarize yourself with where they are and how to get from one to the other. The raffle, lunch, and talks will be held in the Firehouse (open 8-3). Equipment demos are taking place in Building C on the SECOND FLOOR in the north side of the building ONLY. Do not go to the south side of the building - that space is no longer available to us.
  • The other map shows the room numbers and other details for Building C. There are no room assignments EXCEPT for Nelson Pass and Siegfried Linkwitz (following precedent) and LIS/Modushop. NP will be at the north side of room C230 and SL will have the north side of room C205. Room C220 is reserved for vendors (Linear Integrated Systems and Modushop), water, and snacks. Everyone else, please try to find a place for your gear and be considerate that others are also trying to do the same. Tickets (to attend Burning Amp, lunch, and raffle tix) will only be sold where the red asterisk is placed, in the hallway outside the demo rooms.
TICKETS
Please read the previous bullet point for info on where to buy tickets. Entry cost is $20, lunch is $10. Vendors and speakers get free ENTRY.

WHERE TO FIND BURNING AMP AT FORT MASON
Please see the attached map. BA is being held in the buildings circled in red.

ROOM ASSIGNMENTS
Please carefully re-read the text above for that information.

LOADING YOUR GEAR INTO BUILDING C
I have drawn in and labeled the ramp on the east side of Building C (see attached map). Go up the ramp to the loading dock and then into the first floor foyer. A small Elevator can be used to bring large equipment up to the second floor meeting rooms. Stairs are located past the elevator at the end of the foyer. If you have small gear that you can carry, please use the stairs to reduce the bottleneck at the elevator.

ROOM SETUP
If you are demoing equipment/speakers you are responsible for setting up table(s) and taking them down at the end of the show. Tables and chairs will be provided by FM in racks in Building C. In the past these were more or less set up around the walls of each room and this seemed to work well for the most part, but it's not a hard and fast rule. Please leave room around the area where speaker demos will take place so that people who are listening can sit or stand at an appropriate distance.

POWERING YOUR EQUIPMENT
Keep in mind that there are electrical outlets in the rooms but these may not be near your location. Please bring an extension cord or risk being without access to mains AC.

Please double check that you have all the cables, wire, power cords, etc. that you will need. There will not be any spare cables on hand this year and there is nowhere nearby to buy them.

PLEASE PREPARE A DESCRIPTION OF YOUR PROJECT
Please compose and print out a couple copies of some text that describes your project. You will not be able to be present all the time, and this can give people some valuable info on your project without you having to repeat it over and over.

Does open carry mean that you could bring a beer in a cooler and leave it in your car and after getting your food, go outside , get the beer and eat on the dock of the bay? If so that's a bit of a breakthrough. And makes it even more important NOT to bring it into either building. The weather is exceptional ATM, and with the Firehouse at ground level it really makes it pleasant to stroll around a bit and walk between the venues.

I don't think it would be a good idea to have 2 mics on a lapel. ;-)

Last time everything was fine except Nelson running away from both microphones periodically. He is not a singer! :-)
