I'm in production audio. I do a lot of sound effects recording and production sound mixing. As you probably know, this is a very small industry. Because of this, I can't ever get enough of seeing other people's rigs. The other thing that it leads to - and this is my favorite part - is that there's often something that you want to do on your rig that either involves a piece of gear that doesn't exist or isn't meant to run off 12V dc power, or involves a piece of gear that you can't possibly afford, which in turn leads to a significant amount of "MacGuyvering" and custom jobs.

I think this would be an awesome place to share pictures of rigs and pictures of custom jobs and such.

Here's a pic from a TV pilot I worked on recently:

    Good Idea! I'm constantly giving MacGyver a run for his money...

I can post a picture tomorrow but my basic kit includes a Sound Devices 442, Sound Devices 744T, Sanken CS-3e, Rycote blimp and windjammer, Sennheiser 2000 wireless units with Sanken COS-11's, a small Audio Technica condenser mic, I forget which model number, and a ton of accessories to put the mics nearly anywhere, anytime. I'll be adding a stereo mic setup very soon and also a Midas Venice 160 as a cart mixer.
