Hire of all kinds of mallet instruments / tuned percussion
From our big rental stock of mallet instruments / tuned percussion instruments we offer a wide range of professional instruments like marimbas, vibraphones, glocks and xylophones for hire. Our rental instruments are regularly maintained and always in perfect condition. To meet the highest standards, each instrument has been specially selected with respect to its perfect intonation and a steady and clear tuning.
Our mallet instruments are packed in professional and custom-made Preissler flight cases and can be used - like all our rental instruments - not only for concerts or shows in Berlin and the surrounding countryside but as well as for entire concert tours / orchestra travels / guest performances by truck transport or Air Cargo within Germany and Europe. Whereby our very large bass marimbas are fragmented because of their heavy weights.
