Backline Hire

We've all been there. You have booked a days line up of bands to entertain the paying public, but every time one group has finished it takes up to half an hour to change drum kits and guitar amps and line check the next act.


The solution is to have a house backline which all the bands can use. Then change overs can be done in as little as 5 minutes and everything is all sound checked and ready to go.

Where are the big amp stacks??


At Koncept Productions our goal is to get the best sound for the listening public.  We aim our stage hire at the smaller events of 100 - 5000 people.

A stack of Marshalls at the back of the stage creates two big problems.

  1. The sound engineer mixing the event doesn't have control over it, so can't turn it down if it's overwhelming the mix.
  2. The sound generated from it will get into every microphone on stage and again dominate the show.

To most guitarists that sounds like a fantastic scenario, but in reality the audience will hate it.

In our experience a small combo amp miked through the PA sounds a lot better than a big amp stack. And we want everyone, from the front row to the back row to hear the best sound possible.

So unfortunately we don't offer the "Big Boys".
