“Our aim is to ensure touring musicians are confident with their hired stage gear they perform with. From sound check to the final curtain it’s vital there are no unnecessary distractions. It’s great when band members mention how great our hire gear is and insist on using the exact same gear on a return tour. It’s one of several important reasons the best keep coming back.”

In addition to backline hire, our live music production capabilities play a significant role in our operations. We gladly support local schools and community-based events and festivals in achieving amazing experiences, on tight budgets, for audiences under 1500 pax.

Logistics and staging are integral to our services.


Transportation of equipment is an important aspect of our services. You simply advise the time and place and we’ll have your hire &/or fly gear at the stage or venue ready to unpack, or for an additional charge, we’ll have it set up and ready for your crew and artists to tweak at soundcheck – according to your stage plot of course. Your comfort and confidence is our favourite musical key.
