General / Time Signatures
« on: March 08, 2012, 04:05:08 AM »
     Today, whilst searching for a song for a performance, I came across one I wanted to use.  After listening to the song multiple times, I noticed that the song was in 3/4 time.  Then it dawned on me.  In theory, one routine could be performed in different ways depending on the time signature of the song it is matched with.  Furthermore, the time signature could also affect multiple diabolo play.  1 diabolo would be well suited for any time signature value because the tricks can be subdivided into any amount of beats, whereas 2 diabolos would serve best in 4/4 time because it can be subdivided into even numbers, and would probably be least effective in 3/4 time because of those very same subdivisions.   

     Anyways, I found my own thoughts very interesting, and therefore, would like to hear those of others.

Performing / Performance Tips
« on: February 12, 2012, 09:33:18 PM »
Hello ladies and gentlemen.  In little less then one year, I will likely be performing at the MadFest stage show.  The only problem is that I have never performed on a stage before, nor have I ever came up with a routine before.  The show is going to be a glow show with led kits.  I have all of the necessary equipment at my disposal (thanks to mom and dad from christmas).  I'm looking to set it to some techno music and encompass 1 and 2 diabolos.  I have no idea how long the performance should be, nor do I know a song.  Regardless, those are things I can figure out on my own.  Knowing all of the marvelous performers on here, would somebody be so kind as to give a 15 year old kid some tips on his first stage performance?  I'm nervous being on such a big stage with well over one thousand people watching and I almost feel like this is over my head.  Nevertheless, I am determined to rock this performance.  -Sean Looby

Gear / Illuminated Diabolos

As in my last post, I am still on a search for some quality glow gear.  I am wondering if anyone has experience with sundia light kits.  I used to have finesse light kits but i found them to be quite unreliable.  i do like playing with my sundias and i feel that if they make that high of a quality diabolo, then they should have a nice light kit as well.  Don't get me wrong, because I love my finesse and in no way am I doubting Mr. Babache brand product's overall quality.  It could have just been a case of defective unit.  That being said,  please let me know what your favorite glow kits are or what you recommend.  Also let me know if you too had problems with finesse lights.

Hi guys!
I was looking for some recommendations on a pair of glow sticks for a performance i am working on.  I really love peters diamond handsticks, but unfortunately i don't know how to contact him about them or if they are still even being made.  If you guys know anything as far as the diamonds go, or a really fantastic pair of sticks i should look into, please let me know!

Gear / 2d handstick advice
« on: July 21, 2009, 07:15:24 AM »
Hi!  I have had this question for a little bit now and i decided to post a thread on it.  When doing 2d is it better to use stick with a bit of flex or sticks that are rigid?  And also can someone specify a good string length for 2d.  Looking forward to what you guys have to say;D
