PRICING

We understand that every event is unique, and we've tried our best to come up with some standardized solutions for the myriad of applications our equipment and expertise find ourselves in.  The packages below represent some of the ways we can configure our inventory to suit the most common applications we deal with.  

We have good relationships with several other local sound providers, so if there is a critical piece of equipment that isn't in our gear list that the performers require for their show, simply contact us and we'll see if we can source it. 

 

Weather can be unpredictable, but having a good plan in place for inclement weather is key to the safety of your audience and performers.  As you may be aware, electricity and water can be a dangerous combination; lightning makes things even more interesting.  Wind can also wreak havoc on the stability of stage platforms and speaker stacks.   We have custom weatherproof, acoustically transparent fitted covers for our loudspeakers, tarps for our amp racks, and tents for our mixing desks.  

For outdoor events, we add a $100 surcharge

to any of our systems to cover the wear and tear on these items, bringing them to the event and having them on-hand so that they can be deployed at the first indication of a weather event.  Contact us to discuss the outdoor event guidelines that we recommend for a safe and prosperous event.  Nobody.... not audience, performers, local crew or production vendors, should have to die or risk preventable injuries for a good time to be had.

All rental equipment rates subject to 2.5% consumables surcharge over and above base rates listed below.
