One of our customers sent us these photographs of Moire Patterns which were a Proops product from the 1970s.  Nick, our customer used these with an overhead projector to send moving coloured patterns to the backdrop of his rock band – how cool is that!  He told us “The roadie loved this, as he could have a beer and watch us perform while the patterns changed”.  Nick’s children and grandchildren have also enjoyed using these over the years.  How great to hear how these were used and that they are still in use today.  Certainly made to last!

We love to hear your stories of the Proops products over the years, we certainly sold some unusual things. Lots of our customers reminisce about the Tottenham Court Road days and though we are no longer in the same location, our ethos and service remains the same.  Our warehouse in Leicestershire still has some of the original stock from back in those days and we have long been a go-to for those tools you just can’t find anywhere else.

If you have any memories you’d like to share, we love you to get in touch.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great week.

    • Hi Mike, thanks for the comment, it’s always great to hear what people have bought from Proops over the years. We still have a few of our old catalogues around the office and it was such an eclectic stock collection. Sadly most of the really old stock is gone now but we still uncover gems now and again from the recesses of the warehouse.
