Microphones

Our expansive microphone collection includes classic ribbons and large diaphragm valve condensers. If there are specific microphones that you require for your project, Metway is able to hire these in on your behalf.

Backline

We have a range of in-house backline that is available to all our clients. This includes vintage amplification and classic drums. Much of the backline can be set up for you in our large live room prior to your session so all you need to do is turn up and start recording. Please contact us for further information on your specific backline requirements.
