Three Ways to Source Your EK System.

We have made the EK selection process as easy as possible via the Get A Quote page. But we know that specifying the right components for more sophisticated kabuki drop applications might still appear daunting. We’re here to help.

  1. If you know your way around EK, you can go straight to the Get A Quote page here on this website. You’ll see a list of all the EK components. With these, you can build a system for any application – from simple manual drops to complex DMX-controlled multi-string reveals. There are even Starter Packs. If you’d like some examples of multi-string and phased drops, check out the configurations on the EK System You can also download the EK User Manual (in PDF format) from that page.

Christmas arrives early for EK in Texas

While most of us are still enjoying the last remnants of summer (apologies to our readers in the Southern hemisphere), some members of the Electro Kabuki community are already headlong into Christmas plans.

A new order for Electro Kabuki with DMX control arrived from the First Baptist Church Pasadena recently, and we despatched the system last week. Many churches in the US are avid users of Electro Kabuki.

West London-based Electro Kabuki user, Colour Sound Experiment Ltd, deployed its EK system as part of a bespoke touring lighting and effects package built and rigged for ‘alt rockers’ The Kooks, for the band’s recent The Best of… so Far tour.

The curious case of Electro Kabuki enquiries

For many of these people, being able to prove the dependability of the EK system before deploying it in anger at a high-profile event was key.

It’s worth mentioning that a very high percentage of Starter Pack users have gone on to extend their EK systems significantly.

Magnets for Her Majesty

Not every theatrical reveal lends itself perfectly to Electro Kabuki, though most do. But this high-profile event, staged by our very good friends at FE UK Ltd, demanded a perfect reveal for a new war memorial sculpture in London’s Victoria Embankment Gardens to be unveiled by The Queen.
