PA hire

Sound system hire Skipton, north Yorkshire.

Skipton / Ilkley / Harrogate

PA system hire

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

  • Weddings
  • Private parties
  • Gala’s
  • Live bands
  • DJ’s
  • Outdoor parities & events
  • Corporate events
  • Company meetings
  • Funerals

If you are putting on an event that requires a PA system, 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 & 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.

Can I dismantle or move the PA

No. dismantling or moving the pa system can only be undertaken by us, it invalidates our insurance & we have had issues in the past where a PA system that has been moved has been connected up wrong. You may lose your deposit if anything is damaged.

We are getting married in the Yorkshire Dales, can you supply a PA system for speeches & so we can play our own music?

Yes! We have supplied PA systems for the growing Yorkshire Dales weddings industry & over the years have built relationships with many of the local wedding venues including:

  • Broughton Hall
  • Eden at Broughton
  • East Riddlesden Hall
  • Falcon Manor
  • Kilnsey Park Estate
  • Ripley Castle
  • The Priests House, Barden
  • The Devonshire Arms, Bolton Abbey
  • Thornton Hall
  • Utopia at Broughton

As long as it is secure & dry, we are equally happy setting up PA systems in a marquee in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales national park.

Will you operate the PA for us?

If you would rather leave the technical stuff in the hands of a experienced sound man, you can 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.

What can I plug into the mixing desk?

The mixing desk is designed to take signals from microphones, music players, laptops & some musical instruments. Please check with us before plugin in something which you are unsure about as it might damage the equipment.

Can you supply bigger PA systems?

I can supply PA systems 20k & above with a full sound team, contact me for details.
