The Music Society has two drum kits available for hire to May Ball Committees, bands, shows and concert organisers. Our premium option is a complete Yamaha Gigmaker drum set, which is reserved for hires and for ECMS events. During May Week, we also hire out a second drum set made by Pearl, which normally serves as a practice set in the Hostel.
The Society's new Yamaha Gigmaker drum set includes:
These items are stored in stackable hardware boxes that have carry handles and wheels.
This kit is only available for hires during May Week; throughout the rest of the year it serves as the College's practice drum kit in Hostel Room B. It includes:
The Pearl kit does not come with protective cases.
Four-stringed, 'slim' 3/4-sized double bass (180 x 60 cm), with bow, rosin, and protective case. Note that this instrument doesn't have a low C string extension.
Having an 88-key range with touch-sensitive keys, the digital piano comes complete with a stand, sustain pedal, power supply and music stand. It is provided with a strong flight case which should be used whenever it is transported or stored. Please note that the flight case requires two people to move it.
The society can hire out two Marshall guitar amps and a Fender bass amp, suitable for use in all events.
ECMS can provide 30 black, adjustable-height "Wenger Classic 50" music stands, and three music stand carriers on wheels.
