Corton Audio Profile...
Corton Audio was established by Brad Corken in 2007 through a love, passion and dream of pro audio and production. This love and passion for live events (and in particular live sound) has been what has grown Corton Audio since day one, into a reputable, reliable and professional live production business based in Shepparton in the heart of the Goulburn Valley, North Central Victoria.
Why We're Different...
Corton Audio has developed by... 'showing what they can do' rather then just saying 'they can do it'. Corton Audio remains a small business and has developed and progressed in an enormous way since 2007, continually growing it’s services, equipment and training to insure Corton Audio continues to ‘exceed it's client's expectation's’. Corton Audio’s passion is to work alongside our clients to insure that each event reaches, if not exceeds our clients vision for their event and we pride ourselves on being able to assist (when requested) with our ideas and technical knowledge when planning your event to insure each event is to the utmost highest of live production standards.
Our Standard... Stand's out...
Corton Audio has set it's standard high since it's beginning, which has undoubtedly allowed the business to achieve so much in such a short time frame and has therefore allowed Corton Audio to grow and provide the following high-quality services to our clients... including: Audio (Sound/PA), Lighting, Hires, Audio Visual, Electrical Testing & Tagging, Microwave Radiation Testing, Electric Blanket Safety Checks, RCD testing, Event & Site Power Distribution, Asset ID, Safety Equipment, Concert Touring as well as many other services.
