Live Sound Toys Thread

To be honest I am in the market for The following to build up my toolbox. So I thought what better place than to ask the experienced users of GearSlutz. Come one, Come all, Drop your suggestions and links to favourite toys...

Specifically
========
-SPL Meter's
-RTA's (Rackmount + Measurment Mic or Handheld)
-Cable Testers
-Communication Devices (even 2 dollar boxes that help in pinches)
-"Sniffers" ...attach onto one end of the cable, and when u plug it on the other end of the cable it beeps, great for checking snakes / long cable-runs. (Yes I know this is nothing but a tone generator... but retail products are sometimes more intuitive.)

-Any other Magic Boxes That U can't Live Without (Does not include Jonny Walker Blue Label heh )


Anyone wanna start it off? I NEED ur HELP!

MUST-HAVE!!!

- Ivie RTA
-Neutrik ML-1 & MR-1, the Minilyzer/Minirator signal generator/tester combination
-Whirlwind Q-Box (get two, one to send & one to receive)
-Sound Plug, a tiny speaker in an XLR jack. (sound-plug.com I think)
-Female XLR to stereo TRS, which allows you to listen to line level over cans.
-Tone Gen: Inline XLR, requires phantom power and provides tone in kind.

That's my absolute must-have list.

Extra cable ends and a "field soldering" kit.

A phase checker can be handy if you do large arrays.

Cheap extra DI boxes

A little AC checker (three lights - indicates things like reversed neutral, over-voltage, etc) and an assortment of short AC cables and 2-fers.
