Very occasionally at FX Rentals, we receive extraordinary hire requests - 20 drum kits for a TV advert, 30 guitars for a film shoot… so when the guys from Spitfire Audio asked for 56 guitar and bass amps to hire for a weekend at Air Studios, we were extremely curious.

It turned out to be part of an amazing project called 'Aperture: The Stack' which was to be Spitfire's latest sound library plugin. Their wall of sound comprised of our 56 guitar amps, plus four subs on 4 levels of rigging with audio sources generated from an unbelievable selection of vintage synths, drum machines, a Eurorack modular synth and guitars.

We supplied and delivered a varied mix of guitar and bass combos and amps and cabs; manufacturers ranged from Fender, Marshall, Orange and Vox to Mesa Boogie, Aguilar and David Eden… and others.

You can check out 'The Stack' here on Spitfire's website.

Here's what Cédric Coudyser, product manager for Spitfire Audio had to say about using FX -
“Working with Will and the Team at FX Rentals was an absolute pleasure! We had a highly complex recording session involving a truly one-of-a-kind setup of 56 bass & guitar amps, on a very tight schedule, and they were able to provide exactly the equipment we needed when we needed it, advise us on setup, work with us on a complicated load-in and load-out schedule and were an integral part of the success of the project.

From our first call all through to the end of the sessions we were impressed by FX Rentals’ professionalism, technical knowledge and enthusiasm. They clearly understood our requirements and made us feel at ease, and showed they are a passionate team you can rely on!"
