Damage caused by poor quality tape is chargeable. Please do ask us if you think your tapes are in poor condition, for whatever the reason. Unfortunately it is one of those problems where hoping for the best doesn’t work.

In general, for machine hire, please be aware:

Prices are per day, week x 3 day rate.

Head clogging from damaged and dirty tape is common. Our machines are well maintained but tape damage is possible and all use is at client risk. We also reserve the right to charge engineering time to clean and repair any machine damaged by client use. If you think your tape is in poor physical condition please speak to us first.

We also offer a sale and buy-back service for Digi-beta machines.


Shooting kit:

Audio mixers, microphones. Tascam solid state recorders. Competitively priced as a package. 

Lighting kit £25.00

Vintage kit:

All in well maintained condition. U-matic, S-VHS, Hi-8, Betamax, Betacam, Beta SX, DAT. Ask for pricing. However, often it is better to make a digibeta of SX submaster and we can do that in house.
