Outdoor battery powered, horn based system for a football festival in school playing fields.

‘At the time we were working to quite tight deadlines. Sunsound were quick to understand what we wanted. On the day of our event the team were very efficient coming up with some great ideas to help our event run better from a sound perspective. We have worked with Sunsound for 2 years running at our festival and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.

They offer a great tailored service that meets the needs of our event.

Very accommodating to work with a community based organisation with limited funds. Really appreciated the fact Sunsound reduced the cost of hire by taking an advert in our programme.’

Susan Lawford : Humanist Celebrant
Accredited by The British Humanist Association

‘Sunsound provided a highly professional and reasonably priced service for an outdoor wedding at which I was officiating.  Jim met me at the venue several weeks in advance of the event, and planned where to place microphones, speakers and cables so that they would be effective but unobtrusive.  On the day he arrived well before the start time, and everything was set up and thoroughly tested before any of the guests arrived.  My main concern was to avoid “feedback” during the ceremony – there was no trace of this at any time, which was very impressive.

I would definitely recommend Sunsound.  The service was very efficient, reliable and cost effective.  I couldn’t fault it.

Jim is pleasant to deal with, arrives when he says he will, and offers good advice on the options available in a given scenario.  I have no hesitation in commending his services to other potential customers.’

Outdoor public address system hire for Ynysybwl remembrance service

Remembrance Service at Ynysybwl Cenotaph

‘Mr Jim Nettleton of Sun Sound has provided the public address system for visiting Royalty when unveiling the village refurbished War Memorial and for the past 9 years at the annual Royal British Legion Remembrance Sunday Parade and Armistice Service in Ynysybwl.  On first meeting, he quickly understood our requirements and soon developed a plan of how best to meet our needs.  Punctual, efficient and discrete, he has provided a consistently high quality service with modern wireless microphones and compact speakers with superb clarity in the open air with no distortion, feedback or echo, thereby ensuring all attendees are able to hear the whole Service of Remembrance.  He has also regularly updated his equipment over the years in order to provide the best quality service available.  I can thoroughly recommend Sun Sound for your outdoor public address requirements.’

Tom : Outdoor pa system for a wedding ceremony at The Kymin, Penarth.

“SunSound provided the PA system on our wedding day, and we were extremely happy with the service. Our ceremony was held outside, yet the sound was excellent and the equipment was not imposing. We would thoroughly recommend SunSound to others!”

‘The first time we used SunSound, we were very new to organising any form of event. With the friendly and helpful advice they offered, it really put out mind at rest to know are needs would be met to the highest standard. SunSound’s service was professional and top quality. The sound system was of an excellent standard and this was reflected on the success of our event. We are hopefully planning another charity event next year and will definitely be using SunSound.
I would most definitely recommend them.’

AlexWedding celebration with several bands.

‘Sunsound’s service was simple and efficient. With all the other arrangements that need to be made when planning a 2-day mini festival wedding, you want everything to be as fuss-free as possible. Thankfully Sunsound was just that and it allowed us to get on with the rest of the arrangements with one less thing to worry about.

The day Jim arrived to set up the equipment it was completely unobtrusive and he came and went without anybody noticing. There were no issues when setting up the sound and the eventual outcome was fantastic!
I would definitely recommend Sunsound to anyone else planning a wedding, party, event or mini-festival. Jim is very quick and knowledgeable when responding to queries and nothing is ever too much trouble. We were also very happy with the overall cost – we were expecting it to be a lot more!
Use Sunsound!’

Joe Spooner : Loaded Jones (Band)

‘SunSound service is great, Jim and the guys are always friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend them to anyone as they give the personal touch that bigger companies don’t give and they’ve helped us on many occasions, providing good equipment and service at a really good price.’
