Posted on , by Jake Richard in Audio Services, Services. Comments Off on PA hire | Sound system hire

I hire PA systems suitable for small to medium sized events (up to 500 people) such as:

  • Corporate events
  • Conferences
  • Company meetings
  • Live bands
  • DJ’s
  • Outdoor parties & events, weddings & funerals
  • Private & pub parties
  • Gala’s

If you are putting on an event that requires a PA (public address) system and/or other AV equipment, I can help. I will supply, deliver  & setup (plus engineer & mix if required) a professional PA system, ideal for small/medium venues and halls. Using a decent quality PA system and microphones can ensure the perfect sound for your event.

One of the paybacks to spending a big part of your life working as a professional musician is ending up with a truck load of high end sound and music technology. I put this equipment to good use by hiring it out to individuals, businesses & venues.

The PA system & any other hired equipment will be delivered, setup & sound checked for you with a quick tutorial on how to use it, so that you don’t need to worry about any technical aspects. I am based in Skipton & can deliver within a 15 mile radius including:

Ilkley, Harrogate, Keighley, South Yorkshire Dales etc.

If you would rather leave the technical stuff in the hands of a experienced sound man, why not hire me to do the live sound for your event? Having in the past worked both as a sound engineer & video mixer/editor I am well placed to offer a professional freelance sound service. As well as having great ears, I am calm & discrete, both essential requirements for any sound technician.
