Nice Shop in Burbank Tripod Stuff

Hi, I just thought I would throw this out there if you are anywhere near Burbank, CA and have a problem with a tripod, or maybe want to check on what they have currently in used tripods, check out Transylvania Express Ltd. 818 295-6972. George Haber is the service manager. They handle a lot of the local production studios and major studios business in town.

Very reasonable prices for what they have done for me over the years. New rubber on the 3 spreader points for a Sachtler tripod, new quick release plate for different cameras, all were seemingly reasonable billings.

I worked a job a couple weeks ago and had my hard Sachtler bazooka tube case's handle just finally pull completely off of two broken fastening points, same time, after 23 years and throwing a mic stand always in the tube too with the tripod weight wise. I thought "oh bleep" as the tubes go for almost $600 and I figured I would probably pay at least $100-150 to get it repaired if they could do it. Just called and it's done! $35.

It's a nice little shop on Victory one block from Olive Ave.
