The NEW BEST BOY-2™ Pocket Console® DMX with Playback-8™


Just like our 8 Sub-master workhorse, the PLAYBACK-8. It gives you the same 8 Channels of control as the Playback model and its ability to Record up to 8 Sub-masters for calling back 8 exact looks. Built to take it in an armored case with an etched faceplate. AND the BEST BOY-2 sells for $200 LESS than the old BEST BOY!

The Best-Boy-2…the Gaffer’s friend for sure…as it should be.

    Just wanted to let you know we have been on site all week at a job in Texas and have been rockin’ our Best Boy! We love this thing! It allowed us to test a bunch of product prior to DMX lines being terminated! Saved a ton of time…
    Thanks for the great product!
