We stock a wide range of industry standard equipment for student and private events at a significant discount compared with commercial production companies. The vast majority of our revenue goes back into the society in order to purchase new equipment and maintain our existing stock. 


As our primary objective as a society is to facilitate student live music, we are flexible on price within reason and never want the cost of hiring equipment to prohibit you from running an event. As such, we can offer discounted prices on a discretionary basis to student events. If you are organising a charity event or an event within Clare College, we are able to offer discounted prices. Please contact us here with an equipment list and/or event requirements to discuss a discount on advertised prices.

All our hire shop equipment is available on a dry hire basis where you operate the equipment yourself. Some of our more advanced and high-end equipment is only available on a wet hire basis. Please see here to find out more about our wet hire services or contact us if you're looking for specific equipment.


Please note, standard hires may be subject to additional surcharge if your event is within one week (7 days) of booking.  

We generally prefer organisers to collect and return dry hire equipment from/to our base at Clare Cellars, Clare College, Trinity Lane, CB2 1TL. However, we are able deliver/collect equipment depending on availability and distance. There is a minimum £55 delivery fee for all deliveries and collections.

All prices are for per day hires (longer term rentals >1 week are subject to discounted prices), VAT is not applicable.
