“Our aim is to ensure touring and local musicians are confident with the gear they rely on to perform with. From sound check to the final bow it’s critical to a smooth production team and audience experience that there are no unnecessary distractions. It’s great when band members, TMs and crew mention how great our hire gear is and then insist on using the exact same piece on a return tour. It’s just one of the reasons the best of 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.

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.
