twinThe Shaped Music backline department is the touring artists' friend. Managed by longtime expert Harry Browning, our gear is always maintained to the highest working quality, and we can provide true vintage gear or the most modern piece of equipment. We have drum kits from Gretch, YmahaDW, and Yamaha; guitar amps from Vox, Fender, Trace Elliot, Marshall, and Roland; Eden, SVT, and SWR bass rigs; Roland, Yamaha, Wurlitzer, and Hamond keyboards, and so much more. We can meet any technical rider!

We baby our backline and perform constant checks to ensure we deliver performance. And our backline crew are not "delivery guys". We send a tech to help throughout the show so you can be sure of complete satisfaction.

Below is a current list of backline items we offer. If you don't see what you're looking for, be sure to contact us — we have additional gear available upon request.
