Technical Specifications Summer 2008


All equipment is PAT tested before leaving for an event, and has red and white insulation tape on to identify it as mine.  

There are a few pictures of the equipment, and these can be found after the description. However, I have recently been upgrading and changing my stock, so the pictures are getting out of date!


Take me to:
