London Music Equipment Hire

From instrument hire to DJ equipment hire, Fat Lama is the musician-friendly solution to your studio or gigging requirements in London. By choosing to borrow peer-to-peer, you’re renting from fellow players with a common interest. In a city where thousands of musicians are sitting on idle equipment, it doesn’t make sense to pay over the odds for commercial guitar amp hire, or to break the bank to hire DJ equipment.

Even before Spotify, carving a living out of the music industry was a precarious task. Now, ‘survival’ for most means touring 365 days of the year and juggling a number of day jobs. However, Fat Lama allows musicians to ease the financial squeeze by making use of their used guitars, instruments and other gear and unlocking a significant additional income, simply by putting their assets to work.

Fat Lama for all your touring needs.

By choosing to borrow peer-to-peer, you can avoid inconvenient journeys to backline rental shops, and arrange convenient handover with lenders based near to your gig venue or accommodation.
