Sound System Hire - What to Consider

Putting on a gig is a very involved job and you will have many things to consider if you want to ensure that your event is a success. Sound system hire is one of the most important things that you’ll need to consider. If a band is using a sound system that doesn’t meet their needs then they won’t sound very good at all, and there will probably be a lot of feedback too. This will lead to the band feeling very unhappy and not performing their best, and it could even lead to audience members leaving and even asking for their money back. You need to ensure that the sound quality is perfect and this means calling in the experts. Cheap PAs never sound good, so if you want to ensure the success of your gig then it’s always best to look into sound system hire.

What do you need?
When you work with a professional sound engineer they will be able to listen to exactly what it is that you’re putting on and decide what you need from there. But your basic requirements will include a full PA rig with speakers, monitors and a desk, and all the relevant wiring to connect it all. You will also need microphones, leads and stands. The band will generally turn up with their own backline which includes guitar amps, bass amps and very often drum mics too. Each band has slightly different needs when it comes to equipment, so you should always ensure that you get a copy of their technical spec before the event.

Information to give the sound engineer
When you are looking into sound system hire, you will be asked several questions about your event. Be ready to tell them what sort of band it is, what the line-up is, what the venue capacity is and of course all of the logistical information such as when and where the event is taking place. The more information you can give them, the more likely you are to get exactly what you need.
