Selecting Sound & Lighting Hire for DIY Parties

Throwing a house party, or other small to mid-sized party rarely requires too much in the way of electronic equipment. This is because most homes come with a large supply of lighting and the rooms are small enough that voices can carry quite well. However, if you plan on having a specific type of entertainment at the party such as karaoke, a live band, or anything that might require additional lighting, sound, or stage setup, you should consider utilizing a company like True Sound Hire to supply your necessary appliances. We at True Sound Hire, cater to any type of event, no matter how large or small the gathering is, so long as you’re seeking top quality products at reasonable prices. 

Serving You For Better Parties

At True Sound Hire we serve a number of different regions all across the United Kingdom, including London, Surrey, Guildford, Portsmouth, and various surrounding areas. Our website has a long list of the regions that we currently serve, but we urge all potential new customers to give us a call or send us an e-mail if you live in an area not on our service list. 

Our client base means more to us than just the general customer does at any other local business. We truly care about whether or not your event works out and if you are getting the correct equipment to put everything on without a hitch. If you have any questions regarding the equipment that you currently have, what items or accessories could be added for a better sound or experience for your guests, or other concerns, we invite you to contact us and one of our well-trained staff will be happy to help you find all of the information that you need to make your party a success. 

Small Parties Matter

Here at True Sound Hire we thrive on any style of event, and house parties are one of our absolute favorites. DIY parties are a great way to save money, and we have a large selection of packages and individually priced stock that is perfect for smaller venues and home parties. We also offer many different DIY items for clients who want to be the hero of their own event with DJ kits and other easy to devices which will assist you in setting yourself apart. 

Sound And Lighting

Even a small house party can use a little help in the sound and lighting department, whether you need a strobe, disco ball, or a spotlight for the entertainment of the evening. We also have microphones, both wireless and wire-in, and many speaker options and music transmitters to keep folks dancing the night away. If you have a larger space and wish to take advantage of more cool products, we also offer a starlit dance floor hire, which, although isn’t commonly utilized in small party venues, can make a really fun accessory to an already exciting prospect. The lit dance floor helps to create a space where guests can come together, dance and have fun in an area that is designed specifically for dancing and music. If you have a smaller space or can’t quite fit a lit dance floor hire into your budget, you can choose from a  number of other special lighting and effects such as our smoke machine, or the décor lighting displays that you can mount and use to cast illuminated patterns on your walls and ceiling. 

Working Out The Numbers

Here at True Sound Hire, we love helping our clients get what they need, no matter the budget that you have to work with. Sometimes you may not even realize the amount of equipment that you can get on your particular budget unless you ask, so encourage all who are interested to call and speak to us about our piecing, packages and DIY options that might be affordable to your financial outline for your party. 

Whether you’re only looking for a few additional pieces of equipment to transform your evening into a brightly lit, musical success, or you want to go all out with a large supply of lighting, effects, staging, and sound equipment, we are here to help, and we take our job very seriously.

Why Event Planners Are Choosing True Sound Hire

Whether you’re an event planner, a party organizer, or the leader of an organization, business, committee, or a consumer in need of some great lighting and sound options, True Sound Hire is the company to turn to. Here at True Sound Hire we pride ourselves not only on our massive index of high quality stock, but also on the knowledge that our staff has on these items. Each member of our team is trained in how to use the items available to our clients, what the setup time frame and costs associated will be, and whether or not the product works well in a particular setting or for a certain type of event. 

Knowledge Is Power

There may be a few competitor companies in the London, Surrey, Guildford, Portsmouth, and surrounding area region, but at True Sound Hire we don’t sweat the small stuff when it comes to others trying to build a following in our area of expertise. This is because we are so very confident in what we know and how that knowledge affects the relationships that we build with our clients. We want every customer that we assist to be a returning customer for life, and for that reason, among others, we put our all into every sale and service. We don’t just want you to use our lighting fixtures for your wedding party, we want to know how it went, and that we made a difference in your special night. We don’t just want to supply great sound systems to event planners who are putting on large scale concerts, we want to encourage and assist in any way possible by mixing and matching additional accessories and other products that might make your event the best yet. We care about our consumers and we know our products inside and out, which makes it much easier for you to trust us over any competitors who might be offering similar but lesser items. 

The Price Is Right

Our price points are set so that our customers aren’t spending a pound over their budget, but they are still able to get every item necessary for their event. This is why we created our package deals, so that whether you’re seeking lighting, sound, or stage setup options, there are a variety of packages to choose from, with different price points, products, and accessories available in each creation. All of our prices are listed on our website for our clients to see, making it easy to login in and take a look from home or the office before calling to book a hire. If you’re confused about any of the product listings, packages, or prices, we encourage you to call ahead and speak to one of our well-trained representatives about the items that you had in mind and how that pricing works for you. 

Availability And Convenience

At True Sound Hire, we like it when the world is convenient, and that is exactly what we offer our customers. We have a large well-stocked warehouse full of all the products we know our clients need, whether it is being booked in advanced or called for at a moment’s notice. We usually encourage clients to book ahead so that we have the right product at the right time, but if you’re late in booking and the exact setup that you want isn’t available, don’t sweat it, we have many options that will work out just as well, and might even turn out better for the venue type and crowd that you have in mind.

A Helping Hand

We love our work here at True Sound Hire, and we want you to love planning your event as much as we love supplying for it. This is why we like it when customers call ahead to ask our opinion on certain products and whether or not they’ll work for your particular event. If we don’t think you’re going with the right sound system, we will let you know, and supply a better option for you, but we never enforce our opinions, so you always have the final say in the colours, special effects, and light, stage, or sound type that you receive for your special event or party.

Music And Performances

Many people believe that radio microphones are better saved for speeches and speech related performances, but this isn’t always the case. A high quality radio mic hire can make for a perfect accessory to any music event, festival or live performance where singing and music will be present. Paired with the right sound system, speakers, and lighting, a well-placed radio mic does a wonderful job getting your song to the crowd, and making for an exciting night of rock and roll, pop, or jazz. It doesn’t matter if you’re singing, playing an instrument, or speaking in between sets, you will find that your messages are clear and well-heard throughout the venue. This is one type of event, however, where you will definitely want a second opinion from one of our True Sound Hire professionals on the type of equipment to pair with your mic hire. We have a well-trained staff ready to answer all of your questions and help you select the accessories that will go best with your hire.

School And Team Functions

Gathering together for an award ceremony, school concert, or assembly can require you to be heard by many across a crowded room. This is the perfect place to setup and use a radio mic hire from True Sound Hire. We serve many townships across London, Surrey, Guildford, Portsmouth, and surrounding regions, and are willing to travel with equipment to get you what you need on the day that you require it. Having an equipment provider that you can count on can make all of the difference in the world when you are planning a big event, especially if it is something that you haven’t done before. We are always happy to share our knowledge base with our clients and give you a little bit more information on what types of equipment you will need, where they will work best as far as placement goes, and other data that could really benefit any school function. 

Whether you’re an event planner, a bride or groom seeking out the best possible equipment for your reception, or a school official searching for the best price on a radio mic hire for an assembly or other educational function, we are here to help you get the best quality equipment for the most reasonable rates.

School Mayball Event Production Got You Worried?

Putting on a school Mayball event production is intimidating at the best of times. Dealing with all of the sound setup, lighting control, stage construction, and accessories can take quite a bit of planning and preparation, not to mention money spent on equipment, setup, and additional factors. Fortunately, we here at True Sound Hire believe in helping our clients through every step of the process, and we specialize in sound, lighting, stages, lasers, and everything else that you could possibly need to put on the best Mayball event you could possibly have imagined. 

Pricing and Budget

So, of course these sort of equipment rentals require some financial planning, especially if you don’t want to go over budget. You also have to consider things like food, drinks, the dance venue, and various other costs that you will incur during this preparation. One thing you can look forward to are the reasonable rates that we offer, especially when you bundle services through one of our premium packages. Lighting, sound systems, stage, and accessory packages are all available at affordable rates on our website, and you can easily view price lists, stock lists, and packages with the simple click of a mouse. You can also call and speak to a well-trained representative at any time to get the low down on our products, pricing, and guide to a better Mayball. We highly suggest that you make up a quick budget before calling so that you know how much you are looking to spend before we give you a quote. 

Setup and Production

The big event is nothing without all of the small factors like décor and setup that make it what it is, and we want to be there for you during this process. Here at True Sound Hire we offer time estimates on setup, and provide only the best quality equipment which has been double checked for quality assurance so that you don’t wind up with an item that doesn’t perform properly on the day of your event. We also provide setup for many of our larger products such as staging, so that you aren’t left wondering where everything goes and whether or not it will hold up when you have performers in place.

Choosing Equipment

The choices for your equipment are practically limitless and include a number of basic tools such as speakers and other sound system instruments, but also more modern devices like wireless microphones, DIY DJ stations, and a variety of other fun and interactive sound options. Similarly, lighting packs a number of different accessories as well including disco balls, starlit dance floors, lasers, smoke machines, wall-lit lighting displays, strobes, and spotlights. This makes it easy to establish your theme, make everybody of importance visible throughout the day/night, and create an exciting atmosphere for the youth in attendance. The selection of your equipment will depend on the style of the evening, the budget that you have established, the number of people in attendance, and the size of the venue. We are happy to make suggestions to clients who are unsure of what they need, or who are curious about additional pieces that might go well with the original equipment they have already hired. 

When To Order

We usually suggest that school Mayball event production teams put in your bid to hire as early as possible; this helps us procure the correct instruments and equipment for your big event in time, so that the pieces that you want are all available to you. While we do take last minute hires, this can be risky, because we never know what will be left in stock, especially around these busy seasons when so many educational institutions are planning Mayballs and other school events for the spring season. Even if you only have a basic idea of what you need, you can book ahead and call back later to add additional pieces of equipment to your order. We also invite all of our clients in to have a look at the items in question to determine if they are the right size and quality for your event. We serve London, Surrey, Guildford, Portsmouth, and various surrounding areas, so feel free to call even if your town isn’t listed on our main website home page.

If You're Looking To Hire A White LED Starlit Dance Floor Your In The Right Place

Dance Floor Hire For Your Big Night Made Easy

Are you hosting a birthday party, wedding reception or just a dance party for friends? It can be difficult and even tedious to set the mood for this kind of event if you don’t have the right equipment, and when you do find the equipment it is often expensive to put together the theme and setting that you really want. Fortunately, there are many products on the market now that can make this part of your décor much easier to establish. One way is through dance floor hire, which is something that we at True Sound Hire tend to specialize in. Imagine a dim room, music in the background, and then a brightly lit floor underfoot, creating a perfect space for those who want to dance the night away. 

Wedding Receptions

As far as dance floor hire goes, your wedding reception is probably the best place to have one, because this is a time in your life that you want to remember for years to come. You can dance the night away, see everybody around you, find the floor in a room full of tables, people, food and decorations, and you can customize it to work for your theme or party style. If you want to create a soft lit ambience for that first dance this is totally possible, but you can also rock out by adding additional disco balls and strobe lights to the room for a full on party night effect.

Birthday Bashes

Sure, balloons and cake can make a birthday party fun, but they won’t exactly make you the talk of the town, which is exactly what we aim to do with our starlit dance floor hire. All you need is a room large enough to set this floor down in and you can enjoy lighting up the night with the perfect place to groove. Whether the party is for teenagers or your 50th bash, a dance floor can make all the difference between a calm quiet night among friends, and an exciting celebration of your next step in life as you move on to a new age and a new year among your friends and family.

Proms And Dances

High school dances, proms, and even community events with music and dancing can all benefit from a dance floor hire, especially if you’re renting a hall or using a gymnasium and are in need of some serious décor to redefine the space for your event. This type of addition can create an entirely different atmosphere, and leave guests smiling, and dancing the night away without a thought for the rest of the room. This works well on a tight budget because although you will pay for the rental, the prices are reasonable, and it helps to make any room into a dance hall in a matter of moments. 

Anniversary Parties

Nothing says “I love you” like remembering your first dance together as a couple, and that is why a dance floor hire makes a wonderful addition to any anniversary party. It doesn’t matter if it is your one year anniversary or your 25th anniversary, spending the night in the arms of the one you love on a floor that lights up the room will help make a new memory while you celebrate the ones from your past. This can make a night to treasure and add to your list of special moments together as a couple. In fact, you might find it difficult to top on your 50th. 

Here at True Sound Hire we believe in giving our clients the best of what we have to offer at the most reasonable rate available.

Why Festival Outdoor Stage Hire Could Be Your Best Bet

When it comes time to begin preparing for melting ice and snow, the first thing that comes to mind for party planners and event organizers is that it will soon be time for outdoor festivals to begin once again. This can mean anything from concerts to celebrations, and generally there is a huge crowd to appease. As an organizer the best thing that you can do for your career is plan ahead, book ahead, and be prepared for absolutely everything. For us, here at True Sound Hire, there is nothing we love more than helping our clients reach these goals.

Renting Your Equipment

Before you begin lining up actors, musicians, and other entertainers for the festivals in your future you may want to consider where they will be performing and what type of equipment will be required. Festival outdoor stage hire can make this a much easier task to complete, by contacting companies like us, you can get yourself an outdoor stage setup, along with additional sound and lighting equipment and other necessary structures quickly and easily. One thing that we pride ourselves on having over our competition is a competitive price tag, because we know that when you’re setting up for an event, there are always other budgetary requirements to take into consideration. For this reason, we pre-packaged our outdoor stage equipment in an easy to access bundle at one convenient price. 

Pricing Your Festival Outdoor Stage Hire

Before you book you may want to call around and see what options are available as far as the best price, but you will probably find that while other companies may have reasonable rates, a lot of their outdoor structures are complicated to setup, and come in many pieces that need to be rented separately. Our festival outdoor stage hire gear comes in one excellent outdoor stage package which can be found in the packages section of our website. Pricing, setup time, and the number of people that this stage will suit is all listed on our website as well. In fact, our website has just about all of the information that you could possibly need in regards to preparing for your big day, weekend, or week-long festival. You can check out our stock page for other products that might come in handy, you can also visit our price list to see how much each individual piece costs, along with the price of our outdoor stage. 

Making Recommendations 

Along with your festival outdoor stage hire, you will find that working through us here at True Sound Hire means that you also get our equipment expertise as a complimentary bonus, and we have plenty of helpful staff members who are fully trained and prepared to take your calls, answer your e-mails and chat with you online about additional equipment you might need, and how each piece of equipment works and is assembled. There are many do it yourself items that we supply to those who want to cut back on having members of an outside team at your event, but we also offer many products that will be erected and setup for you, and you will find that you won’t be spending extra pounds where you don’t need to. 

Clients For Life

Here at True Sound Hire, we want to create a lasting relationship with our clients because we value our connections and enjoy serving the local communities of London, Surrey, Guildford, Portsmouth, and other areas nearby.

If you have any questions or concerns we encourage you to contact us and speak to a representative anytime.

Making Sound & Lighting Equipment For Weddings More Exciting

Every wedding deserves to be seen and heard, but what many planners and brides don’t know is that there are ways to really mix up your lighting and sound to create an exciting new atmosphere in your reception hall. Sure, there are always the basics for playing music throughout the room, and a spotlight for your toasts, but here at True Sound Hire we believe in offering more than the average lighting and sound experience to our clients.

Creating Something New

The first step that we usually recommend taking in creating a new experience for your guests is to research our sound and lighting equipment for weddings. Not all pieces of equipment are equal, although we do pride ourselves on selling only the best of everything. Each of our pieces of equipment is tested before and after each use so that you know they will work and won’t have any technical issues during your big day. 

We also offer a wide assortment of lighting and sound systems, which gives you the ability to customize your setup and choose colors and styles of lighting and sound that suit your life and your wedding best. One piece of lighting which we supply that has become very popular among brides and grooms is our decorative lighting projections, which can cast stylish illuminations across your walls. 

Taking A Chance on Exciting New Décor Styles

Something that we always offer to our guests who are seeking out sound and lighting equipment for weddings is our starlit dance floor. Nothing is more exciting to those in attendance at your big event, or for yourselves, than a brightly lit dance floor at your wedding. Like something right out of a fairytale, this dance floor can cast tones of whimsy or influence some creative dance moves by spicing up a slow night and creating fun and funky lights and colors.

For other exciting additions we also offer disco balls and strobe lights for the wedding couple that prefers something modern, hip, and young as opposed to something romantic, soft and whimsical. These tools work well with our DJ equipment and sound systems to give your reception the feel of an after party at a rock concert! 

Taking It Outside

Much of our equipment has been used at both indoor and outdoor events, giving you the option of moving your wedding outside into the open air. If you’re planning a spring or summer wedding then now is the best time to book for your outdoor staging and accessories. We always suggest that our clients book early in case another couple has their eye on the same items. Although there is plenty in stock here at True Sound Hire, we find that some equipment is more popular than others for this particular type of event, and the warmer seasons tend to be very popular among brides and grooms for wedding dates. 

Make It Live

Nothing makes a wedding more exciting than a live band, because although a DJ can be quite fun, it isn’t nearly as charming or interactive as a band on stage playing their own instruments and crooning to the crowd. For this we also have a variety of sound and lighting equipment for weddings that is suited to the live band crowd. Aside from speakers and sound setups to better amplify instruments, we also offer a wide assortment of microphone types so that your singer can be heard.

When you have a live concert, there are usually quite a few people in attendance, and this can make it difficult for everybody to see what’s going on. Our projection screens and LCD monitors can help you show all of your guests exactly what is going on center stage and bring the live show to your guests without any pushing or shoving for front row seats. Of course, at a wedding, the band is really there for the dancers, which means that most people will have a clear view. In this case, the screens can be used for other purposes such as displaying video clips or photo montages of the bride and groom as they grew up, met, and fell in love. Nothing makes a memory like a combination of many good memories all displayed in the same place. You can find a whole list of the difference hire services we offer from wireless LED uplighting to dance floors and PA systems. See our main homepage for details and advice

Financing Your Dance Floor Hire

Planning a special event such as a wedding or birthday party can be fun, but it can also be costly, and if you aren’t sure about your budgetary restrictions things can get pretty confusing. One of the things that we get many questions about here at True Sound Hire in regards to prices and budgeting is our dance floor hire. This starlit dance floor offers an illuminating glow for all of the guests who choose to use it, and while it is reasonably priced, if you are already paying for other equipment, it can be difficult to justify the purchase. For this reason, we want to offer you a few tips on how you can finance your dance floor hire without guilt or worry. 

Make A Budget

Okay, so step one is pretty simple, you need to see exactly how much money you have to work with and write it all out where you can see it. Whether you use an electronic device, or a pen and a paper doesn’t make a difference, what is important is that you know what you can spend and where you will be spending it. This means writing out more than just the number of pounds in your pocket, you must also include a list of prices such as venue rental, catering, clothing, and various other requirements. Once you know what you need and how much they cost you can subtract them from your original amount to see what you have to work with. 

Coming Up Short

If you find that you aren't able to pull together the amount necessary, this doesn't mean that you can’t get yourself a dance floor hire for the special day, it simply means that you must find a way to gain a little extra money before the event takes place. One way that we suggest to many of our clients to do this is by raising money through a draw or raffle of some kind that provides a prize of 50% of the earnings to those invited, and the rest can go toward additional needs for the event. By selling tickets for the draw early on and drawing on the night of the event you give yourself ample time to raise the additional funds without breaking your budget or going without the dance floor and any other rentals that you might need for your festival, party, concert, or other event. 

Cutting Out What Isn’t Necessary

If raising additional funds isn't an option for you or your event, but you really want the dance floor to be part of your special event, you don’t have to give up on your dream altogether, you can also take a second glance at that budget that you created and weigh the pros and cons of each item on your list. Do you need everything that you have written down, or are some things just extras that you might want on the big day? Take a good look at the dance floor, call and speak to one of our representatives for more information on the floor and how it could benefit your gathering and then decide by weighing it against the other options on your list. You might be surprised to find that you are spending money on a lot of unnecessary items that won’t bring you what you really want to achieve. 

Contacting True Sound Hire

Once you have found your method of finance, whether it was through one of the above mentioned methods or one of your own devising, your next step toward acquiring your dance floor hire is to contact us directly. We offer various methods of contact through our website, e-mail, and telephone, and are happy to assist in any way that we can through these methods. We invite you to come in look at our equipment, speak to our staff and find exactly what will suit your event.

We are more than a company, we are a family, and we want to make every celebration and event that you organize turn out to be the success that you visualize it as.

Our goal here at True Sound Hire is to build clientele for life, and to do this we are willing to go above and beyond for those that we work with.

Although we work with a lot of large businesses and assist in many festivals and concerts, we also supply to a multitude of small affairs, parties, and family events that require only a few items at a time. This means that no matter what size your event will be or how many guests are included, you can use True Sound Hire without fear of too little equipment or outrageous prices based on big business scales.

Our client bases range from Cranleigh, Weybridge, Heathrow, and Staines to Knightsbridge, Slough, Godalming, Farnborough, and everywhere in between.

Outdoor Staging Hire For Beginners

At True Sound Hire we are always excited at the prospect of helping our clients plan a new event in regards to the sound, lighting, and stage equipment, and this is especially true of outdoor staging hire. Whether you have been putting on outdoor festivals and events for years, or you’re new to the event planning arena, all of our professionally trained staff are eager and willing to help you get the absolute best quality equipment to make your show go off without a hitch. We can explain how the equipment works, where best to setup, what accessories might work well with your selection, the price and how to budget your equipment rentals, as well as a number of other suggestions that could make your festival or concert a much brighter affair. 

Take Exact Measurements

When our clients ask us about the first steps to throwing a successful outdoor event, we always suggest that they start out by measuring the lot they plan on using to setup their staging equipment. Our equipment for this type of event measures 10m X 8m, is a fully covered outdoor stage system and costs £2000, well within the means of most event planners with a big crowd to prepare for. 

The purpose of most outdoor concerts or festivals is to create a large space in which people can gather and take part. For this reason, you need to know how much room you have to work with where you will place the staging, and measure that region for an exact idea of what you have to work with. Once you have a general idea of placement you can move on to the next steps in getting started with outdoor staging hire.

Choose Your Accessories Wisely

We love helping our clients choose accessories for their staging and parties because we have so much to offer. From sound systems with wireless microphones and full DJ equipment to strobe lights and smoke machines, we have it all. One thing that many of our clients decide to go with when they select the outdoor staging hire is the additional carpeting and catwalk that can go along with it. The catwalk is an excellent accessory if you are playing a live concert and want the performer to be able to come out into the crowd to interact without leaving the stage. It also works well for fashion shows or events which are trying to display something in particular to viewers in the crowd.

Another item we supply that we often get requests for in combination with outdoor staging are our plasma screens, which make a wonderful addition because they can be used to play videos, display pictures, convey advertisements to the audience, and more These screens allow audience members further back to see what is going on up front if you place them throughout the crowd.  Additional trusses and other mounting gear may be required if this is something that you are interested in.

Choose A Flat Stable Area

So you have measured the main area and you have a few accessories chosen, now you need to prep the area for setup and this means locating or creating a flat space for your stage to cover. If you erect the outdoor staging hire on a hill, you might find things sliding off onto the ground, and performers may have trouble balancing and playing the way that they need to. This is also dangerous because things can get broken, or may not get put together properly due to uneven ground which could be cause for further accidents. 

Be Wary Of Possible Weather Malfunctions

Finally, you can’t plan an outdoor event without knowing that the weather is always going to factor into how successful your concert or festival plays out. Rain can be an especially unfortunately situation to find yourself dealing with, but there are weather proofing options, and some party planners utilize alternate days due to bad weather to play their event. If you can’t move your date and bad weather persists you will be happy that you took precautions and that the stage is equipped for whatever Mother Nature can throw at you. Speak to one of our representatives today to get tips and hints about how you can better prepare for weather.

Get Noticed With A Projector Hire!

In the world of business there is a vast multitude of tricks and tools that you can use to set yourself above the competition. This is especially true in big business when the corporate ladder for success is a steep climb and your co workers are willing to go above and beyond to make an impression on the management team. For this, and many other opportunities, projector hire can be the difference between a boring presentation and one that highlights exactly what you want to say while also entertaining and providing top notch visual representation.

Here at True Sound Hire we take projector hire seriously, and encourage all of our clients to check out the high quality equipment that we provide for both business and personal needs. Although projection can make a big impression in business, it also adds a personal quality to an otherwise unglamorous evening.

Making Your Boss Pay Attention

Projector hire can be used in coordination with our screens which are designed specifically for use with the projectors. They can also be used in correspondence with LCD or plasma displays to give you the picture and clarity that you require. We recognize that not all events are the same, and neither is every conference, seminar or presentation, and that’s one thing that makes these machines so very interesting and convenient. You can use it in just about any situation for a variety of themes and content. You want to display charts and graphs? A projector hire can help; similarly, if you are looking to show a video, photographs, or any other type of text or image, you can have it up front and center for everybody to see. This shows dedication, focus, and an impressive sense of organization and preparation. 

One of the great things about these tools is even those who don’t particularly want to pay attention will be drawn to the visual. Whether it is text that you’re expressing, the quarterly numbers, or a just video clip representing something else worth noting in your company, you can get your point across with a projector hire. 

Partying With Style

If the business lifestyle isn’t what you’re interested in, projector hire can still be for you. No great party is complete without some photos or video clips of whatever you’re celebrating. This works for birthdays, wedding ceremonies, anniversary parties, or family events. You can showcase Uncle Eddy’s rendition of a beloved song from last year’s family holiday bash, or play a tribute montage of romantic photos of newlyweds at a wedding event. There is really no end in sight for the number of ways you can set yourself apart with one of these tools. 

We often recommend to our clients that they consider the projector hire with just about any other equipment that they rent because the price is great, and it adds a little something extra to stage events like concerts, or to shows that require sound and lighting such as a DJ club dance party Whether you’re entertaining a younger crowd or one with an older audience, you can find something to show off and make the celebration unique to you.

Planning For Better Events

Even if you aren’t the one celebrating or presenting something, this is a great rental for the office, classroom, or any kind of party that you are planning for somebody else. We especially suggest that wedding planners and other event planners give it some consideration, especially if they don’t have a lot of personal knowledge to use in the plans for the host and hostess. People love being represented in their special events, so having a way to show photographs or videos from the family, friends, or office staff can really spice things up and bring business back around to you the next time that somebody is planning something like this. 

If you go with our projector hire you can also add sound systems to magnify what you’re displaying, a wireless microphone to make your presentation stylish and entertaining, or specialty lighting including a spotlight, disco and strobe lights, or decorative lighting. If you’re interested in any of these products we encourage you to get in touch with one of our well-trained staff members for a quote today!

Selecting The Best Conference Sound And Lighting Hire Package

Conferences are all about getting the attention of your audience, and more importantly, they are about making an impact on those you are trying to share a message with. Conferences can be utilized for a number of reasons including business functionalities involving work information and new sales tactics, or they can be utilized by organizations or charity foundations as a method of appealing to the public. The equipment that you select for your presentation will depend on who is involved and how many people are in attendance, but here at True Sound Hire we supply a number of different conference sound and lighting hire options for nearly any size or theme. 

Lighting Up Your Venue

So our top priority here at True Sound Hire is to make sure that you are seen and heard, and while many businesses focus on the latter to appeal to their audiences, many people forget that lighting can be just as important as sound equipment, especially when you’re speaking to a large room. Our lighting packages come in a variety of sizes with additional stock pieces that can be added to nearly any combination you choose. 

Lighting can be an art, but it certainly doesn’t have to leave you stressed out and anxious about where to put things or how to set them up. Your rental agent should be equipped with all of the information that you need to place your lights in an area where they will make the best of you venue. They should also be able to set you up with all of the additional requirements for staging and mounting, which is exactly what we pride ourselves on. 

Speak to a representative about which lighting package would work best for your event and be prepared to ask questions that you need answered at this time. A list of venue measurements, guests, and budget numbers should be on hand when you discuss the lighting, especially because stage placement and additional furnishing can make a difference to how easily visible the lighting makes your speakers. Remember that not all conferences require a central speaker at all times, which means that more than one spotlight may be required. 

Creating Great Sound

Sound System Hire in Surrey, London, Guildford, Portsmouth, and all surrounding areas is simple with our sound package hire. The True Sound Hire website is full of information on our packages and pricing, like our 7kw sound package which can be easily setup in as little as twenty minutes and works well for an audience of up to two hundred and fifty guests. The package includes two OHM TRS 212 midtop speakers, two OHM TRS 218 subs, and an E100 amprack which should fit very conveniently into a small transport van for those conference organizers who are considering a DIY approach to cut costs on setup. Currently this package is reasonably priced at £195 ex VAT per day of use, which makes it a steal for one day seminar or conference events.

This particular sound package works great in a variety of settings, but it isn’t the only package we offer for conferences. A 2.5kw, 14kw, 16kw, 24kw, and 42kw are also available, with the largest package supporting sound setup for an audience of 5000 people for the hire rate of £1600 ex VAT per day of use. This applies a simple approach for all businesses in the selection of gear, giving you the ability to look into guest count and budget as a method of understanding what you need.

Whether you’re gearing up for the biggest sales conference of the year or you’re operating a learning style conference for those interested in taking part in a nonprofit organization or charity event, your lighting and sound will be in capable hands if you use our easy to access data regarding pricing and size options. Our packages are designed to make your life easier, but you don’t have to stop at sound and lights, there are plenty of other opportunities available to make the best possible conference. Staging, special effects, décor opportunities and more are all available to our clients if you know where to look. If you work through an alternative rental business, be sure to ask about any additional pricing they may not include for setup and travel costs.

At True Sound Hire we provide a large selection of handheld models including the Sennheiser 300-500 series and the Shure ULX 4 UHF-R series.

All of our products are made from the highest materials available, and you’ll find that they outlast much of what the competition has to offer.

Our mics give the freedom to move around on stage, walk among the audience, and even use them from a distance as long as they are within range of the receiver. This is one reason why so many customers choose True Sound Hire radio microphone hire for outdoor events.

Why Your Guests Will Love Your Wedding Dance Floor Hire

Nothing says a wedding reception like the vision of all your aunts and uncles grooving on the dance floor, and here at True Sound Hire, we want to give them the best possible experience on your special day. Many brides and grooms invest in specialty lighting for their big events, but they don’t always consider the special effects and alternative dance floor options that are out there. Wedding dance floor hire can take your wedding from a place where it resembles any other ceremony, and turn it into a completely unique and memorable experience for everybody involved.

Bright Lights For Better Dancing

Our starlit dance floor hire offers exactly what your guests will be looking for an a romantic night of dancing and fun. The soft glow illuminating from below makes this a fun place for everybody to practice their favorite moves, whether you’re young or old. It can also create a completely new ambience for the theme of your reception, and can easily be altered from a romantic slow moving soft lighting effect into an electric pop kind of vibe with the addition of a disco ball and colour changing lights. 

By adding special effects like a smoke machine and lighting enhancements you can go from day to night and ceremony to reception in moments, which can make the night even more memorable. Many brides choose a long traditional gown for their ceremony and a shorter whimsical one for the dancing during the evening. Adding a wedding dance floor hire to your night can do much the same thing, by transforming your venue into a completely different view.

Making Your Guests Look Good

Not only does a wedding dance floor hire like our starlit floor make for a more exciting night, it can also make your guests look and feel better by lighting up their best qualities and giving the bride a stunning glow that you can’t duplicate without this style of lighting. With spotlights above and bright starlight below, all those who you have invited can see each other properly, and all of those glistening satins, and sparkling sequins will be set off perfectly in a way that will have everybody staring at the bridesmaids as well. 

These floors not only transform your guests and the room around them, but it’s also a perfect tool for anybody in your family who is hard of seeing. This creates a great area for dancing that is visible from across the venue so that all of your guests know where to dance, where to sit and chat, and where to find the bride and groom when it’s their turn for a dance. 

Alternative Uses

Wedding dance floor hire is obviously best suited for wedding receptions, but we at True Sound Hire believe in ingenuity and this means utilizing the tools you have for many different activities and functions. Dance floors are great for a variety of events such as staff holiday parties, birthday bashes, anniversary celebrations, and even DIY night club experiences. Anywhere that you can dance and get lost in the moment deserves a starlit floor to do it on, and this is a perfect excuse to snap up our DJ equipment, sound systems, microphones, staging, and lighting effects to really make a night to remember. 

You might be surprised at the number of ways you can change your venue into a completely different experience by adding any number of our equipment packages.

Why Projector Hire Has Become So Popular

The entertainment industry has come pretty far in the last decade, but projector hire isn't just a great way to give your guests an amazing show. Projectors are being used in a number of places for a number of different reasons, each giving presenters the ability to show a different side of what they’re try to say or present. Our projectors are both through the brand of View Sonic and offer the best in projector technology. Paired with our projector tripod screen measuring 200mm sq with a robust high quality picture capability and a lightweight build for easy transfer, your presentation will be turning heads for sure. 

Giving Your Audience An Alternative View

Projector hire isn’t as popular for concerts as they are in other areas of their niche, but many bands enjoy having them side stage to display images, videos, and to supply advertising for their endorsements. Generally a larger concert will warrant a plasma screen instead, for the more high tech capabilities and because it can be mounted in a more specific location, but many smaller shows will utilize a screen to get their message across.

Making Community Functions Better

Communities are made up of a number of different kinds of people, and these people have different needs when attending a community function. Some are hard of hearing, while others might be easily distracted and enjoy more visual aids throughout a presentation. Projector hire gives you the ability to give those in attendance at a meeting or town function exactly what they need to be part of the goings on. Displaying closed captioning for the hearing impaired, images to appease the visually inclined, and video clips to get your point across more clearly make these screens well worth the reasonable rates that we charge for hire here at True Sound Hire.

Getting Your Point Across In Business

Perhaps one of the most popular reasons that our clients rent these units is to better display a business style presentation. Charts, graphs, statistics, and other company data can be displayed in bright high definition and colour, which will give your superiors and colleagues a better idea of what you’re trying to tell them with a report or update. Projector hire from True Sound Hire also can be used for other business purposes, such as a staff holiday party, or another company event. Photographs of employees, music and videos, and various other visual uses can be obtained through our screens. 

Whether you’re trying to display a more professional appearance, or you’re lending ambience to a company event, there’s so much you can do with projector hire. The projector can also be used to display visual presentations directly onto a plain white wall, which lowers rental costs, and adds to the experience, especially if you’re showing a movie, or aiming for company fun rather than the more serious side of the office life. 

Getting Personal With Family

Projector hire isn’t just for business and live shows, they can also be used for a variety of personal events, such as a wedding party, or a family gathering. Displaying images from past family events, projecting home videos or films for a movie night are all great uses for these products. A projector and screen give a much more personal feel to any of these celebrations, and give you the opportunity to put your own touch on your party. Whether it’s a birthday bash or an anniversary, there are ways that you can make your celebration brighter and better with the addition of this tool. 

Our helpful staff are standing by here at True Sound Hire to assist in any way that we can. If you need help choosing the projector hire for your event, or you aren’t sure if a projector is the best type of equipment to use, we are happy to help. Our staff has been trained and gives advice on sound, lighting, displays, staging, and special effects on a regular basis, so feel free to pick our brains and get some new ideas for your event or family party. You might be surprised at how easily a change in lighting and method of display can make a difference to the entire theme and décor that you have chosen. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, if you would like some more info about renting projectors please see our Projector Hire page where we have pricing and specs on the different units we hold stock of.

How To Avoid Problems With Your Outdoor Staging

Here at True Sound Hire we test all of our products before and after each use to be sure that the quality matches the highest standards of our client’s expectations. However, these tests only help with the integrity of the outdoor staging, not with the experience that each user with have while utilizing them. For this reason, we usually try to give our clients a few tips on how to avoid dilemmas that a novice user may encounter. 

Warn Guests From Touching Your Equipment

Usually setup and takedown are a simple task and our crew of professionally trained staff is happy to assist with this process, but once the stage is in place it’s up to you to monitor the connectors and keep guests at your event from tampering with them. In outdoor events it can be ridiculously easy to lose sight of people, especially in a large crowd, and while most in attendance aren’t going to bother with the staging, you might be surprised at how attractive it can be, especially to small children, to play in places where they shouldn’t.

There are many other issues that you could encounter if guests are allowed to touch and play with the equipment once it is setup and ready to go. Outdoor staging is usually accompanied by lighting and sound system and this equipment can be heavy, expensive, and of course plugged in. This means that by not monitoring your stage you could be opening your guests up to danger and somebody could get hurt. Nobody wants an injury on their hands, especially if you’re trying to operate a successful festival, concert, or wedding reception. A warning sign, and a team of security or staff appointed to watch over equipment will help you rest at ease and keep things running smoothly. 

Watch For Wet Spots

This one might seem obvious, but outdoor staging is exposed to the elements, which means that a bit of rain, snow, or a thin layer of frost across the surface can make it very slippery very quickly. To protect your entertainers and guests from getting hurt, having a mop or rag nearby to wipe the stage down is an excellent idea. We also suggest giving the stage surface a once over before the band or presenter steps into the spotlight, this will guarantee that nobody slips.

Similarly, accidents happen when liquids are allowed on stage, and while some of our clients allow open drinks, we usually suggest a bottle with a cap for singers and presenters if they need a drink during their performance. Leaving open beverages can also lead to spills, slippery surfaces, or sticky surfaces, which can also impede performance and get into band equipment, sound system wiring, and a number of other places. Speaking to any performers about your preferences for drinking while on stage is definitely something that you should consider. Even if you don’t mind the open beverages being allowed on the equipment, at least they will be more aware of where things are placed and may be less likely to knock them over. 

Placement And Clarity

We always want our customers to be satisfied on the first try, which is why we get very specific about the type of outdoor staging you’re looking for and where it will be setup. Depending on the company that you hire to cover your event you may not find these same qualities, so it’s important to let the staff you rent from know exactly what you want and where it will be going. Otherwise you might find yourself with a stage nowhere near where you wanted the event to take place, or in an area where something else needs to be setup. 

We can always give pointers on optimal placement in regards to natural lighting, the best electrical options, and where the land seems smoothest enough for an outdoor staging setup to sit evenly on the ground. Our staff has been working with staging, sound, and lighting systems for many years and is well trained in a variety of different subjects and products including our outdoor staging and how to give your guests and performers the best possible experience for their money. You want those in attendance to be entertained and impressed with what they see, so the stage needs to be in a place where they can see it properly. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our log, we hope this was helpful and gave you some things to think about when hiring, if you would like some more info about our outdoor stages please see our Outdoor Staging Hire where your find pictures, more advice & some pricing on the different systems we stock

This can lead to problems if the business that you’re working with runs late or you have a problem later that you can’t handle on your own.

The equipment involved in many of these types of packages run at extremely reasonable rates, which means that any party planner can get the required lighting and sound systems and effects without breaking the bank. 

DIY also means that you don't pay extra in terms of tipping delivery and maintenance workers, and you don’t have to pay for a DJ or lighting expert to make your party a success. All you need to spend your hard earned pounds on is the hire price of the equipment itself, and this can come in a variety of brands, sizes, shapes, and colours. We often suggest that our customers have a clear idea of what their budget will cover before calling so that we can find exactly that you're looking for without causing you to overspend.

Setting a Professional Tone with AV Conference Equipment Rentals

Business has come a long way in the last decade, especially in terms of high tech equipment being used in the office. This is especially true if your company has a lot of meetings or conferences where you need to make a good impression. Sales businesses often find themselves in positions where they need to show another company or individual that they are ahead of their competition and ready to be the best at what they do. This is when having AV conference equipment rentals can come in handy. 

This sort of equipment includes screens for viewing important business data, projectors, and sometimes even sound and lighting equipment. Mostly, it means portraying your business in a way that makes the best possible first impression on your client and continues to impress time and time again. 

Many companies choose to purchase their own products of this kind, but this can be expensive, and AV tools aren’t always used in everyday business which can make it wasteful. We at True Sound Hire believe that every business should be able to put its best foot forward which is why our AV conference equipment rentals are moderately priced, so that you can feel secure in your decision to hire our machines time and time again. 

Look Organized And On Top Of The Game

AV equipment can easily take a boring scattered presentation and bring it together into something organized and ahead of the competition. You want the crowd to hear you, and you want to provide visual stimulation that a regular paper and pen kind of presentation just can’t commit to. With LED screens you can display videos, photographs, data, charts, and reports quickly and easily and explain them to your staff, sales team, and clients.

These instruments also give you the advantage of looking advanced in a society where computer technology means almost everything. If you have the right kind fo AV conference equipment rentals for your conference you can do just about anything. We often tell our clients that if they want to make their company look good, they have to make sure that their customers can clearly see and hear them. 

Keep Things Professional

Nothing is more professional than a team that knows what they are doing and can present themselves efficiently and effectively to their market. If you want to give a message to the crowd at a conference then you’re going to need a microphone, and with it you’ll also need strategically placed speakers, lighting, and visual aids. 

You can also use some AV conference equipment rentals for further marketing possibilities by providing advertising for your company through videos, images, and the right phrasing. This is not something that all businesses know how to do, while keeping their air of professionalism during a conference, but the right equipment can certainly help take you in the right direction. 

Be Modern And Ready For More

One reason that many companies choose to use AV conference equipment rentals is because of the fast growing world of technology. With so many sales being conducted on the internet, it makes sense that more and more businesses are looking for greater displays of sale prowess and a modern take on marketing. The way that you market your business to consumers, even in terms of a conference can go a long way. You want to look like you are at the top of your industry, and that you know what you’re doing.

Many of our customers know exactly what they want in terms of the outcome of their conference, but they aren’t quite sure how to get there. This is why we have a team of trained professionals waiting to take your phone call or email and get you the equipment that you need to really shine. We know that professionalism is important, and we also know that your business matters to you, so whether you’re marketing a new sales pitch with a client, or the conference in question is internal only, we have a large variety of tools and equipment that can give you exactly what you need for almost any budget. Our selection of AV equipment packages, and our pricing list can both be viewed on our website.

Making The Best Use Of A Starlit Dance Floor Hire

Nothing says forever like the sparkle of a diamond ring, and once you’ve tied the knot, how better could you display that glimmer of affection than with the use of a starlit dance floor hire. If you live in the London, Surrey, Portsmouth or surrounding areas then you have a large variety of options when it comes to decorating for your wedding reception, but if you want something that will really stand out and set you apart from the other brides and grooms in the area then you might want to invest in some professional lighting.

Here at True Sound Hire we believe in making your special day one that you won’t soon forget, and this includes everything from the sound to the lighting and special effects. We offer a multitude of different lighting packages, stock products, and a list of all of our pricing can be seen on the True Sound Hire website so that you know exactly what you’re getting pound for pound. 

Placement and Dancing

When you choose a starlit dance floor hire you have more to think about than how to turn it on and off, you also need to consider where in your reception hall will be the best place for the floor to sit. The bright glow that these tiles give off will illuminate your guests and keep the dancing going for well into the night or however long you’re looking to entertain people. 

We usually suggest that the floors are placed in an area where food and beverages are less likely to come into contact and cause sticky problems. It’s also wise to place tables and chairs around the floor but not on top of it. This gives a clear section for dancing, but also protects the lighting from damage.

Creative Additions

At True Sound Hire we offer more than just starlit dance floor hire, we also provide some seriously beautiful lighting effects to cast designs along the floor, walls and ceiling. Along with these lighting products we provide disco lights, smoke machines, and various types of staging. If you want a  stage, DJ, or spotlight, we can arrange the right equipment for the job. 

We also suggest that our clients get in touch with us well before the day of the wedding reception so that we not only have the right products on hand but we also have the ability to discuss other options that will suit your theme and budget. Our webpage supplies information on how many products our packages are suitable for along with instructions on how long the setup will take, which can make it much easier for you or your wedding planner when it comes time to install lighting and sound. 

Themes And Decor

 Not all wedding parties have a theme, but they usually have a certain styled of décor, and a starlit dance floor hire can make a huge impact on whatever decorations you have decided to go with for the event. Starlight has long been associated with romance, which is why our dance floors are one of our top rented units for weddings. This is one day when you don’t want to spare any expense, but with our prices, you won’t have to break the bank to make your hall look like something out of a bridal magazine. 

If you have questions or concerns about your décor and how it will be affected or match up with the lighting and sound equipment that you want to rent, please don’t hesitate to ask us. Our staff is fully trained in all of our products, and we are well known for the many wedding events that we have helped organize. 

Our starlit dance floor hire can also help other events stand out. Anniversary, birthday, and graduation parties all look a little more special with the bright twinkling of lights beneath the feet of your guests. It is easy to assemble and pack away, and can quickly turn a plain event into something far more exciting. These dance floors are also a nice way to add some class to a special school or work function, as long as you have the room to place the tiles, and there is dancing involved.
