All your rigs are cool but this is my fave so far, the on I'm the most envious of. Since most Big Recording seems to be done in urban environments and those environments get tougher and more remote-unfriendly every day I am very impressed at how you've adapted, in style!

Thanks for much for saying that, Phil! Truly appreciate our friendship over the years.

Yes, I'm very fond of the Tiny Big Mobile. It's great on long trips too. No weight stations. No log book entries.

TBM is quite invisible in urban environments. You can park it in a client's or artist's driveway and it's gets neutralized within the neighborhood.

The big truck scene still works on big shows where you can park the truck in the loading dock and such.

I needed to adapted to say relevant, why not do it in style?

Yeah you look like an Amazon truck, only cleaner! I'm just so weary of the "find a space inside the venue + load-in+out" thing by now that I seriously pine for a recording truck, not that most of my clients would pay us enough to have one pencil out!

Phil,

When you said, "Amazon truck" did you mean those electric trucks Amazon purchased from startup Rivian? If so, those trucks look bad-arse!

Yeah, the find a spot in the venue and load in and out can be a drag, yet you have to do what you have to do. We have many different solutions for our portable rig workflow needs.

No--all the Amazon trucks where I live are Sprinter-style rigs that look like yours, only dirty, dented, with bald tires and driven by sleep-deprived dudes who are constantly being harassed to move faster. But there are a lot of them, so your little remote would blend in well on an urban street. When I had my Transit Connect (older chicken tax version) I did have some issues in the city with the height of parking garages, esp those in newer buildings, re: the height of the van.

Oh, I get it now, those Amazon Sprinter vans. Yes, my Ford Transit looks similar to a Sprinter for sure.

With or without those Amazon "trucks" driving around, my Tiny Bog Mobile still blends in well on any urban street.

My buddy just purchased a Ford Transit Connect, and it didn't seem that tall of a vehicle. Perhaps, you got the extended height version. It looks like his version can park pretty much in and parking garage.

The new version USA-made FTCs offer a choice of rooflines (good). Mine was from the old made-in-Turkey stock that was so common in Europe for many years, and was only avail in the "humpy-tall" config. Some good things about the height: my Yamaha console in its roadcase and a folded up Magliner could fit inside on their ends--saved a lot of floor space. It was, as you know, nicer to work in with the added, less "hunchy" height. But the SF city parking garage height-limit thing got to be a real issue: the thing was as tall as a full size van, even if it was very narrow (based on a Ford Focus pan). They also never figured the doors out. If you opened the split rear doors and then the side-sliders, the doors would bang into each other. I had paid extra to get the split rear doors that folded back flat against the sides, only to find that when I did that the side doors couldn't be opened. Ford did a few bonehead things in the motor (plastic water impeller, that melted at a very in opportune moment), but I'd still be driving it if I hadn't been nuked by a guy texting while driving an E350 loaded with tile. Those "crumple zones" work, but the insurance co demurred on a $13k body work bill to fix it, so its gone.

Anytime Fuzzy George!

I hope to finish the acoustic treatments to the side and rear doors next year.
