We are serious about sound quality. We have an edge that most local bands can’t offer – professional sound and equipment. Our pro sound technician, John Loubser, accompanies us to all gigs. John has worked with big names like Doug and the Slugs. He’s designed and built studios, concert and custom monitor systems, and has been a guiding force in the evolution of the Take Five sound system.

Some of our Equipment Includes:

Midas 24 Channel Sound Console
Analogue Processing: equalizers, gates
Compressor: Crossovers
Electro Voice QRX 212 Main Speakers
Yorkville dual 18″ Subwoofers

Over 6,000 Watts of Amplification
