This includes some highly specialised sound systems for unusual or difficult applications. Hire one of our larger systems and we will toss in some lights at no charge!

If you are in any doubt about how to go about planning a large event that involves sound and lighting systems then please let us assist you with this. We have established a vast network of contacts over the years and we only work with those who we feel represent the best bang for the buck for our clients. This does not mean they come dirt cheap, because we have never once met a client who wanted an event based on dirt! But we do know we can trust their dedication and that they are very unlikely to let us or you down.  

We will quote you for delivery anywhere on the planet and may even charge you nothing if you are using the system locally.

Dee Jays, sound engineers, MC's and bands are all available on request.  We have hosted numerous large events and functions that have

been very enjoyable indeed!

We are looking for a client with a nice barn who would like to host an exciting private party with a substancial sound and lighting system and if we aquire another booking as a result of your event we will refund 30% of the cost.

Please contact Paul on ph: 444 8776 to discuss the possibilities.
