About US

Starting out as purveyors of vintage instruments, the Melbourne Backline team have merticulously sort the finest of musical instruments from all over the globe. 

Over the years we have expanded our collection to include both modern and classic equipment to meet the ever changing production needs of professional touring musicians & recording studios.
Although we specialise in hard-to-find vintage instruments we also have a wide range of general backline. Brands include: Hiwatt(UK), Orange, Matamp, Marshall, Sunn, Fender, SoundCity, Vox, Peavey, Ampeg, Ludwig, GAS Custom Drums, Premier, Yamaha, Pearl, DW, Korg, Kurzweil, Nord, Roland and much more.

We understand the needs of independant artists and agencies so get in touch if you want a better deal on backline hire, we are happy to price beat any written quote .
