All Backline Rental prices include free “set up drum teching” (I will make sure that the drums are set up and tuned to you or your drum tech’s specifications). All snare drums and outfits come with 2 ply coated batter heads by Evans or Remo (depending on what I have found to work best on each specific drum or set) and single ply clear resonant heads. I have a high standard for drum head condition. Drums will be furnished with heads that have more than ample life left in them for live dates. When they become worn I replace them at my own cost. If you would prefer new drum heads for your recording project or live date, you are welcome to provide them yourself or ask me to provide them. I will provide new Evans and Remo heads at $1 per inch for toms and snare drums and I will match any on-line price for bass drum heads. Please contact me for prices on other brands of drum heads.
If you need me to provide new drums heads, you will need to provide payment (plus 5.5% WI sales tax) in full, a minimum of 2 weeks before your event. After your event, you are welcome to pull your drumheads or leave them with me for disposal. Payment in full for all backline drum rental is required by cash or cashier’s check made out to Adam Cargin when the contract is signed during equipment drop off. I currently do not accept credit cards, but Paypal is an option (add 3% to cover fees). Wisconsin’s 5.5% sales and use tax will be applied to every rental order.
Cymbals and Hardware are not currently offered for rental as a standard inclusion, but please contact me if you would like these items in addition to drums. I have access to a fairly wide variety of hardware and cymbals that can be provided (should they fit your needs) at a reasonable cost. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
