Backline Hire Drums, Cymbal and Percussion Hire

Band Backline Hire – Hire a Drum Kit:

Pearl Reference drum kit

(Pearl market this drum kit as using the “Best of Masterworks” shell materials, hence the wood of the drums is carefully chosen according to the tom or drum size and characteristics wanted for that specific drum ).

  • Rack tom sizes 10 & 12.
  • Size 14 tom (fits on snare stand).
  • Floor toms size 16.
  • 22-inch kick drum.
  • 14-inch all maple 22-ply Reference Snare with stand.
  • Beautiful scarlet fade.
  • 4 boom stands.
  • 1 hi-hat stand.
  • 1 kick pedal.
  • Drum stool.
  • Sounds great live or recorded.

The secret of the Reference Kit is the amount of research that has gone into making it. The wood of the drums is carefully chosen according to the tom or drum size and characteristics wanted for that specific drum. This is no ordinary drum kit – when it’s properly tuned, it’s a reference for what other drum kits should sound like!

Gretsch Renown (All Maple) drum kit

  • Rack tom sizes 10 & 12.
  • Floor tom sizes 14.
  • 22-inch kick drum.
  • 14×5 inch snare with stand.
  • 4 boom stands.
  • 1 hi-hat stand.
  • 1 kick pedal.

The Gretsch Renown Maple is one of my favourites kits for recording in the studio. As a sound engineer I prefer the sound of these to the DW collector series maple, it has thicker shells and therefore a warmer, deeper tone.

All kits come with standard with the toms that are on separate stands to the bass drum (isolation) and 3 to 4 cymbals stands, a drum seat/throne, hi-hat stand, snare stand and kick pedal if necessary.
