Studio Instrument Rentals

Our instruments are a combination of rarity, uniqueness, playability and tone. Each one will make you play a bit differently. Some are tailored to a specific type of tone or musical genre, others are meant simply to inspire creativity. The perfect compliment to a studio space for a period of writing and recording your next offering. Expertly set-up to your liking, many of them are customizable to fit your needs or to get you to the sound you're looking for.

 

If you're interested in using our gear outside of our learning space, please let us know. Prices vary based on repeat patronage, instrument or length of use. 

 

If you have a particular instrument in mind that you don't see on our list but would like to record with, please contact us with the request. We have several other private collections we are able to tap in to.

 

Please note: This is a private collection of players instruments and as such some of them have been modified to achieve a particular tone.   Not all instruments below are kept at the shop.
