Established in 1994, Music Bank (Hire) Ltd. provides backline equipment hire and a suite of rehearsal studios. Music Bank is an integral part of record producer Trevor Horn's SPZ Group, which also includes the world-renowned Sarm Studios, music publishers Perfect Songs and two of the most notorious record labels of the past thirty years, Stiff Records and ZTT Records. Music Bank is a member of both the London Chamber of Commerce and the PSA (Production Services Association).
Music Bank has the most well respected and well-appointed suite of rehearsal and recording studios in Europe. And a client list that can testify to everything from the joys of natural light to its famous roof terrace. From full air conditioning to our on-site tour supplies shop.
Its flagship, 3,000-square-foot (280 m2) North Studio was completely refurbished in 2008 and is the only UK studio incorporting a brand new, full-size DigiDesign D-Show Venue digital console. It also offers the 2,500-square-foot (230 m2) South Studio and the Green Studio and Blue Studios - which are 1,200 square feet (110 m2) and 1,500 square feet (140 m2) respectively. Each one is open from 10am to 10pm, seven days per week.
Well known in the industry as rehearsal studios, each studio is also available to hire for showcase gigs, video shoots, and live broadcasts. They come with access to a fully equipped production office (with wireless internet), a private lounge, and secure on-site parking (fully CCTV-controlled, with 24-hour manned gates).

Music Bank is possibly the largest backline rental resource in Europe, if not the world. It is well known not only for its vast inventory, but for the knowledge, experience and preparation that comes with every single piece of equipment. Every item always comes fully prepped and tested and is available for collection or delivery Europe-wide.
Music Bank is the preferred backline supplier to the Glastonbury Festival for the past 14 years, to both the V Festival and the Big Chill for the past five years and, more recently, The Green Man Festival, L.E.D Festival, WOMAD, Camp Bestival and Bestival.
