KISS calls on Whirlwind to help blow stuff up!
The worlds most legendary live pyrotechnics show starts with our custom boxes.
By Will Young.
Recently we were contacted by Mike Reinartz at Stage & Effect Engineering to create a series of high visibility, tour worthy pyro boxes that would not be accidentally mistaken for audio snakes while sharing some of the same real estate on or behind stage. The answer was a custom made, bright neon green pain job, combined with our tour proven hand wired pyro boxes that certainly will not go un-noticed or mistaken for an audio snake in the near future.
“These boxes are on their way to meet up with the Kiss Tour in Houston, TX. They are designed to distribute voltage from a control module to multiple firing modules around the stage. Since the pyro firing system uses 3-pin XLR, their color will help to differentiate them from audio stage boxes.” States JP Cirre, California sales.
Thank you again Stage & Effect Engineering for putting together such an amazing show, and thank you for choosing Whirlwind.
