on Tour With Third Day
FiberPlex's LightViper audio transport system was recently acquired by
David Jacques for the Atlanta-based contemporary Christian music group
Third Day for their recent Christmas '07 tour. David Jacques, production
manager/FOH engineer for Third Day (pictured, flanked by monitor
engineer Chris Biggs [left] and system tech Bobby George) comments on
replacing the group's old-school copper snakes with the LightViper.
One of the most important things we wanted to do with the Viper was
to minimize the overall audio system footprint and the amount of
cabling. Basically, we removed over 400 feet of copper from the rig;
this saved us lots of shipping weight and space. We now have a clean,
noiseless system. Since everything is now optically isolated, going
fiber also solved ground loop problems we often encounter. This is a
real plus since we roll-in and out of so many festivals and venues.
There is absolutely no degradation to the audio, which I didn't think
would be a problem anyway. Frankly, one of my biggest concerns was
whether the LightViper's thin fiber-optic cable would be robust enough.
I got my answer on the very first gig we did with it: Before anyone
could yell, "Stop!," I watched a heavy steel cart loaded down with about
250 stacked chairs roll right over the thin TAC fiber cable; I thought
it was over right there. Now I wonder why I was so concerned. The
tactical, military-grade fiber cable is designed for this kind of abuse!

Matt Costa Investigation Update
Although Matt Costa
doesn’t have his $25,000 in stolen equipment back just yet, there may
be a lead in the investigation. After playing a nearly sold-out show in

more than half of the singer/songwriter’s gear and instruments from a
