PA Hire

Hiring out complete sound systems has been our core business since 2001, and has evolved as a fully‑serviced solution to most sound equipment rental requirements: all our standard hire services include delivery, set‑up, and collection; our larger Concert PA Systems include full production crew.

We stock a range of sound and audio‑visual equipment, from basic public announcement sound systems to full-concert rigs, that can cater for:

  • Weddings, Parties, Discos and Social Occasions
  • Public Speaking, Conferences, Corporate Functions and Audio‑Visual Presentations
  • Festivals, Sports Days, Horse Shows, Dog Shows, and similar indoor or outdoor events
  • Live Music Events, from A capella to Zydeco.

All our PA systems comprise industry‑standard professional PA equipment, and we specify the make and model of everything we supply.

You can find full detailed specifications of our current rental stock in our PA Equipment subsection, but if you require any further technical details, manuals or other documents (or would rather speak to a human than read a manual) please do not hesitate to ask us.

We can also supply any combination of equipment to order for you to collect and return (also known as Dry Hire), including:

  • Microphones
  • DI Boxes
  • Audio-Visual Equipment
  • Cables, Stands and Accessories
  • Mixers
  • Effects
  • Amplifiers
  • Loudspeakers.

Sales & Services

To complement our principal rental business we provide a range of related services, including:

  • Multi‑track Recording of live events and on location
  • Consultancy
  • Sale of new and used PA equipment, as well as complete systems
  • Sound‑Engineering
  • Training for Live Sound‑Engineers
  • Technical Support
  • System Installation
  • Audio Equipment Repairs.

If we can't provide what you need ourselves, we may well know someone in the industry who can, so please call us if you would like our help in finding it.

PA Basics

For anyone who would like to know, we have compiled some general information here about Sound, including a PA Equipment Guide, some notes on Production and Touring, some Calculation Tools, and a Glossary of commonly‑used technical terms.

If what you wanted to find out about isn't there, please ask, and if you think we have got something wrong, please let us know.
