Our 200 watt PA speaker system rental has a 15″ woofer for deep bass and a horn for crisp mids and highs. Each speaker has a built-in mini mixer, letting you easily connect it to media players, smartphones, computers, microphones, and pretty much anything else with audio outputs. Each speaker includes a power cable and collapsible stand.
These speakers can be chained together easily using XLR cables to maximize coverage. They are a popular renter for events in banquet halls, movies, and presentations.
We rent them individually, and suggest renting two for medium sized rooms. In large rooms or outdoors, we suggest renting something more powerful.
This simple handheld microphone is popular for events and presentations. It features an on-off switch for simple operation. Moderate isolation helps eliminate feedback while still making the microphone easy for anyone to use. This is a dynamic microphone, which means it does not require phantom power. It connects to any PA system or camera with standard XLR cables. If you want to go wireless, we can help you with a wireless adapter.
Looking for an audio system to go with your microphone? Get in touch and we can build an audio rental package to suit your needs.
This single-channel passive direct box from Art allows to to connect high-impedance sources like keyboards and some mixers to low-impedance devices like some mixers and powered PA speakers. It features a 1/4″ input, 1/4″ pass-through output, and an XLR balanced output. It also features an input attenuator, ground lift, and phase reverse switch.
With the popularity of our Budget Filmmaker Kit, we realized we should help Milwaukee get better sound for their money, too! Our Budget Sound Kit comes with a Tascam DR-40 field recorder, SD card, batteries, cables, headphones, and your choice of either a Sennheiser G3 wireless lav system or a Rode NTG-1 shotgun microphone, with boom pole, shockmount, windscreen, and deadcat. This is everything you need to get great audio on-set or in studio.
Split, amplify, and control volume levels on up to four sets of headphones with Beringer’s Stereo Headphone Amplifier. Individual volume controls allow you to split a signal between multiple listeners or even multiple cameras and control volume levels individually, all without worrying about matching impedance or other issues. One stereo 1/4″ input and 4 stereo 1/4″ outputs can be converted to 1/8″ using adapters. This is a powered unit, requiring an AC adapter (included).
The Sony DVD/Bluray player is a popular renter with our projectors and screens. Sony makes the most reliable DVD and Bluray players in the world, which is why theirs are the only ones we offer for rental. The deck supports HDMI as well as component and composite outputs. It will play movie DVDs, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, Bluray, and recordable Bluray discs (BD-R). The included remote makes it easy to run the show from a distance.
$25 for a day or $50 for up to five days. Or add this DVD/Bluray player to your projector rental for just $10!
The DV Promix 3 mixer lets you connect up to three different XLR audio inputs to your audio recorder or camera. The mixer has switchable gain, low-cut filters, and +48v phantom power for each channel.
This field mixer is lightweight, easy-to-use, and runs on two 9v batteries. The LED meters let you watch audio levels even in bright sunlight. Supports line and mic level XLR outputs and a 1/8″ stereo mic level output for consumer cameras and audio recorders.
We rent ours with an included lightweight sling bag for easy portability.
The Rode VideoMic Pro provides quality shotgun sound with a small size. It’s designed to work with most smaller cameras that use 1/8″ (3.5mm) inputs, including most mirrorless and DSLR cameras. The integrated shockmount reduces handling noise, and the adjustable gain takes the pressure off your camera’s microphone preamps.
The Rode VideoMic Pro uses a supercardioid pattern to avoid unwanted noises from the side, and a low rolloff switch for outdoor use. The microphone mounts in a standard hot or cold camera shoe or on a 3/8″ thread. Runs all weekend on one 9v battery, included. We use a VideoMic Pro on everything we shoot on DSLR and mirrorless cameras, even when we’re running double-system sound. This makes for a cleaner, faster sync in post, plus we have an excellent backup source in case there are problems with the external audio recorder.
For DSLR shooting, we suggest turning your camera’s gain setting down as low as is reasonable, and turning up the level on the Rode VideoMic pro to max (+20 dB).
The Sennheiser G3 Wireless lavalier microphone with transmitter and receiver is one of the most popular items we rent. The EW 122-P comes with the ME-2 omni mic with foam windscreen, lapel clip, bodypack transmitter, bodypack diversity receiver with cold shoe mount, AA batteries, cables, and a hard case. The receiver can output either XLR or 1/8″ with the included cables.

Shooting video with crew off-set is possible, but it comes with some limitations and caveats. Drop kits are a zero-touch way to record high quality video remotely. If you’re using a drop kit to record the A-roll for your video, it’s important to know what you can (and can’t) expect from your r...
