Here at Backbeats Backline, we provide musical equipment rentals for all types of events. Everything from guitar amplifiers to orchestral percussion is our specialty. Whether you need an acoustic guitar for a wedding singer or a drumset for a stadium rock drummer, we provide professional quality gear for such occasions. Here on location we prepare full band rigs to any artist specifications. We then offer a complete service to deliver, set up, and give a helping hand during the performance if necessary. All equipment is tested and accompanied with spares to ensure the show will go on.
