From its humble beginnings in 1952 between a basement at Jim Fisher’s house, Republic Studios, and a Gasoline/Petrol station in Studio city, J.L. Fisher, Inc. was born.
The company first started making microphone booms and bases and became the industry standard with these products.
In 1963 the first model 8 dolly came out and later around 1967 the model 9 was introduced. The model 9 is still used today on many multi-camera sitcoms.
In 1980 the model 10 dolly was introduced and soon became the industry standard and still is today.
The smaller model 11 dolly rolled out in 1994. The model 11 is very popular in Europe because it’s small size and small radius round steering. This was built into the model 11 from inception.
