Live Sound Equipment Hire, Sound Technicians, Staging, Event Production, and More…
Traditionally the week rate is the charge for 3 days.
For DRY HIRE ONLY (you pickup and return) we charge half price for the 2nd and 3rd days, so you only pay for 2 x the day rate for the whole week.
We have special rates if you need to hire for longterm “lease”. For example, when a bar installs a sound system for 6 months.
For safety reasons, we don’t usually provide stages over 100cm high. Our usual stage height options are 30, 40, 50, 60 and 90cm.
We can provide staging at above 1 meter, but it will require handrails around it and will cost additional to build.
Each par 56 can requires 300 watts.
300 x 8 = 2400 watts for 8 par cans.
For our top of the line drum kits (Pearl Reference Masterworks, Gretsch Maple Renown and DW Collector Series); The cost is the same regardless of how many piece drum set you hire. Cymbal stands, snare stand, snare, throne and single kick pedal are included in the hire.
$299+GST. We can customise which toms you take on hire and how may boom stands you take for your cymbals at no additional cost, but if you need a double kick pedal or additional snare stand – that will cost additional.
Ranging from $50 for a single stage piece (2 by 1 meter) to $4000+gst for large stages delivered and set-up.
You can visit our stage hire page or contact us for more specific information.
For busy seasons such as summer and public holidays, the earlier you book the better.
Of course, we know life isn’t always predictable!
We will always try our best to accomodate last minute hire and bookings, just give us a call.

No. We highly recommend that the power for audio is isolated from any other vendor or thing that requires power at your event. This is because the other items can draw alot of power and cause hums and pops through the sound system. Also if they draw too much power you run the risk of popping a fuse causing a big pop/bang through the speakers & everything to turn off interrupting the whole show – and we don’t want that to happen, do we? Also if you are running off battery or solar power supplies anything that heats up or moves can draw more power than the panels and batteries can cope with. We highly recommend only using the batteries for Audio and lower power LED lighting.
