PA Hire Ancillaries

This is where we like to really help and tailor your event perfectly for you and supply you with bespoke PA hire products.  Sometimes, the type of event you are having doesn’t give much scope to the PA hire speaker systems that we would use, but all of the other PA hire ancillary equipment that goes with it can be vastly different from event to event.

Mixers
We have different sizes of mixing desks from, small 12 channel desks for a vocal production to a full touring 32 channel desk. We always use Soundcraft desks.

Microphones
This is where it all gets personal!  There are industry standard microphones like the Shure SM57 and SM58 which we have by the bucket load but, sometimes, a certain voice doesn’t suit a certain microphone. We always stock and carry names and brands including Shure, AKG, Sennheiser & Calrec.

Amplifiers
Probably one of the most under-thought-about pieces of equipment in the rig. An amplifier is an amplifier isn’t it? Well no actually. Just in the same way as you wouldn’t expect cheaper speakers to sound as good as expensive ones, the same applies to amplifiers. Cheaper amplifiers will make your sound suffer. We only use the best amplifiers from Lab Gruppen, Crown or Powersoft.

Outboard
All of our effects racks contain state of the art equipment. We always use matching speaker controllers from Martin Audio or XTA linked with effects, compressors and graphic equalisers from Lexicon, BSS, DBX, Alesis and LA Audio.

Monitors
We can supply In Ear Monitoring for you (you supply the ear pieces!) or you can use open-ear-monitoring from Martin Audio.

The Rest
This section contains everything else, we only use the best cabling from Sommer, Canford Audio, Horizon to name but a few. We also have 63, 32 or 16 amp power distribution depending on your venues specification.
