Party PA Hire
If you’re having a party, organising an event or need a PA for your function, we can help with a range of easy to use PA kit. As Hi-Fi people, we try to use PA that sounds as close to Hi-Fi as possible, not just as loud as shriekingly possible.
Don’t use you home HiFi for a party…..!! It was the number of sorry faces we saw that started us on the path to hiring out proper kit. The hire fee is often less than a repair bill and it will sound so much better and look cooler.
Most Importantly. Bad sound (a little Hi-Fi cranked up and straining) is far more annoying to neighbours than a good system running at idle.
Contact us to book the right kit for your event, but here’s an idea of what we have available. Hire fees are for 48 hours. We will ask for the usual forms of i.d. for hiring things and a deposit for the value of the equipment. If you don’t see what you need here, please ask, we have lots more….

It’s loud enough to fill a good sized space, has an iPod dock and instrument and microphone inputs. You can stand mount it if you want and use several together for more volume.
Next up is the recent addition to our kit, the very excellent Yamaha Stagepas300. £60 to hire.2 small speakers, 60cm, with a 300 watt digital amp and 8 channel mixer + reverb built in. Use them for house parties, talks and films, small gigs and so on.

For bigger spaces, more people or just loads of fun, add the 2 Bass Bins – see below.
