Of course we all know how to dress a garage band scene, and maybe even a largescale concert. But there are always little details that can be missed. That’s why it always helps to ask the experts when you’re picking out your items. What kind of speakers should be used? How about microphones? Not to mention which of their guitars would match a certain time period.
I swung over to Artery Props and The Auditorium to see what was new in their inventory. Those two have been working steadily for almost 10 years to maintain and grow their prop house.
The two properties, both in the same location, work primarily for the film and television industries renting out their instruments (The Auditorium) and their uniquely positioned custom artwork and print shop (Artery Props). I always like seeing what their most recent and/or favorite acquisition is. Right now, apparently, it’s this sweet “axe”:
Looking for a keytar? They’ve got plenty to choose from. Need a specific colored guitar? Pick which shade of the rainbow.
Mark and Victor have also put almost a decade into expanding their “Band Art”. From cleared posters and flyers to CD and record covers, they’ve created cleared album and band art for you to swing by and take with you. They’ve also got 3 large format printers that they work with to spit out much of their work.
Something I hadn’t known before is that their inventory expands beyond their space too. They’ve got extra multiples and some of their larger pieces just a quick skip away that can be picked up at the same time.
It’s always nice to watch something grow from it’s original conception, and Artery Props and the Auditorium fit that bill nicely.
