"The term backline used to refer just to audio amplification equipment that stands behind the band on stage, including amplifiers for guitars, bass guitars and keyboards. Backline has expanded in recent years to include the instruments that the musicians play, from guitars and bass guitars, to keyboards and organs, to drum kits and various percussion instruments. It is often used in this sense to talk generally about the equipment available to or needed by musicians. (e.g. "What is the backline at O'Malley's Pub? The band wants to know if they need to bring their own drums or amps.")" - Copied from Wikipedia 2013.

Drums, Guitar Amplifiers, Speaker Boxes, Bass Amplifiers, Guitars, Basses, Cymbals and Keyboards are all available for hire, please visit the following link for the current range available for your next Rehearsal.
