Possibly our most talked about category that features legendary vintage microphones as well as many 'modern day classics'. We have the worlds best and largest tube mic collection available for rental.

  • Most of our tube mics rent for $100 per day, $400 per week.
  • Telefunken Elam 251's, select Neumann and Telefunken 47's are $150 / $600.
  • AKG Stereo C24's and other stereo tube mics are $175 / $700. 

We do offer microphone "shootouts" locally. You can try 3-4 mics for a 4 hour period to find the one that best suits your application, bring back the others and just pay for the "winner." Call or email for more details.

These microphones are meticulously maintained by our tech department and are tested before and after each rental. If you have never tried a tube microphone on a recording, you don't know what you are missing!

Here are just a few from our collection. We are adding more of our inventory daily. We have multiples of almost every mic you see, except the very rare ones.
