Up until recently this was our most popular package as the sub provides a big sound and bands can often work with the 3 monitors provided. As always the quality of the equipment is top class.  The 5 hours included gets a lot of bands from start of sound check through to the close of the event.  We now provide 2 coaxial monitors and one superb active monitor as standard (subject to availability) giving performers a much more cohesive sound.  The difference is quickly audible explaining why L’acoustics and other stadium class equipment use this design for their monitors.  This package is one of the best value available in London, as you get an engineer worth over £200 plus £400 worth of equipment rental.

This is a great starter system for bands and is often a popular choice with professional function bands that bring their own back line.  Just to be safe, I will personally talk you through your requirements to ensure everyone involved is happy.  It is an option to replace the monitors with in ear headphone amps (excludes headphones).

All of the brands are highly trusted by anyone working in the sound industry: Martin Audio London, Soundcraft, Sennheiser, AKG, JBL, Crown, QSC, Shure, Radial, Neutrik.
