Laugh and Cry in a Single Sound

Sure, quoting Bruce to make a point is a cheap shot, but there's no flattery like mimicry. We believe that there's simply no expression like music in its ability to convey more than one emotion at a time, and to convey many different things to many different people at once. If we have a mantra for our business, it's that. The way we deliver that in a sound business, in addition to our acts of service, is by having a wide range of equipment and rentals that fit many needs for many people.
We focus on delivering reliable quality over sheen on the bezel or trendy tech. When technology makes a leap people can discern, we add shiny new equipment that will continue to bring tears of joy to eyes and the stab of lost love to hearts with the clean shimmering twang of an acoustic guitar, or the clear mournful cry of a first violin.
Our specialties include wireless mic rentals services that flex with the level of service you need, but you can rent any of our gear with or without service. We offer three levels of service:
If you're already comfortable with mics and sound and just need some extra gear, we're happy to rent ready-to-use mic systems that you pick up.
If you need a bit of help, we can deliver and connect to your sound system while we provide some basic training for someone at your venue who will operate them.
If you're not familiar with the process, or simply want our experts to ensure that your event is audible from every seat in the house, we can deliver, set up, and mix the show for you.
We handle a number of yearly theatrical and musical performances for high schools and universities, and you'll find that we're a fixture in many of Northwest Ohio's symphonies, community theaters, and special events.
