Hong Kong audio rentals?

7 posts in this topic

I need to rent some gear in Hong Kong, basically Shure rackmount RX and body pack TXs, as well as a flock of boundary-layer type floor mics (like Crown PCC160).  Who has a suggestion of a rental house for me?  My web searches have mostly yielded companies who don't have what I need.  thanks

I have a buddy in Shanghai that works in production.  Middle of night there, but I'm sure he'll email me back when he wakes up

Tried Salon (my ex) or Cinerent? Not sure of others these days but there may well be conference/PA companies that might be more suited than the cinema folks, but try them first. There may also be options in Shenzhen/Guangzhou if a fixer could do the border stuff.

Let me know how you get on since I could also chase up some friends (at Star etc) if need be. My friend used to do exclusively conference work in HK but that was 20 years ago. Conference companies might be more likely - although in fact HK is a pretty small audio world as people and stuff is concerned. What's the timing to sort it out?

If you're dealing with the public spaces like the Conference Centre it would be well worth getting in contact with the tech support there initially to find out what they have already as well as possibilities of bringing new stuff in.

Thanks.  The venue has some gear but there is a long boring story around how we have to do this show that I won't bore you with, the result of which is that I need specific wireless etc equipment.  For you SF folks--what I'm looking for is the BBI of Hong Kong...

I've PM'd you Philip with a couple of leads and contacts but I'll just stick this one here for everyone's benefit and future knowledge - another prod company and supposedly rental house, although there's not much info on their website at the moment:
