about.

IMG_7351ESS are an audio production company formed in 1988 by Phil McDaniel and Richard John. We are an enthusiastic forward thinking group of people, we pride ourselves on being one of the UK’s premier suppliers of audio equipment, crew, backline and production management services.

Based just off Junction 28 of the M1 we are conveniently located to service events nationwide, using our extensive hire stock and vehicle fleet.

We consider ourselves a ’People’ company. Our personal attention to customer enquiries and needs is an essential part of our company attitude. We are committed to success gained through Professionalism and maintaining Good Attitude.

The concept of working within a larger team ( including everyone from stage, lighting, video and security crews ) is emphasised, benefiting the event as a whole and avoiding unnecessary ‘attitude’ problems. Client loyalty over the years has proved testament to this. Many of our clients have been with us for over twenty years. We believe that we are small enough to care, whilst having the resources to supply only the very best service.

I just wanted to pass on the sound truck crew’s respect and grattitude to Mike & Dave. They played a blinder on the Introducing PA the whole weekend and were a pleasure to work with. Many of the bands I spoke to had much the same reaction too.
