Hiawassee has rental and leasing options for sound equipment and systems. Sound systems can be needed for various events and occasions, such as weddings, parties, conventions, meetings, public speeches and so on. All of these need clear and loud sound systems. The equipment itself comprises music systems, CD changers and mixers, microphones, public address systems, speakers, a DJ console, etc. They are manufactured by a number of companies, one or more of which may be available for rent or lease. Since most of the events need such systems only for a short period of time, it may be wiser to just rent it (cheaper, as well). A lease is a more locked-in agreement. Rates depend on the amount and quality of equipment, as well as the period of the rental.
