About Matt Snowball Music…
Matt Snowball Music has been supporting the music and entertainment industry for over 20 years. Based in London, we are experts in backline equipment hire, self-drive splitter vans and band tour transport, flight case manufacture, tour supplies, musical equipment storage, repairs and more.
We started in Camden, London in 1991. Matt was working as a touring backline tech, and took the decision to set up in business supplying backline equipment hire and transport. He had contacts at a local rehearsal rooms, and was able to rent storage and office space there.
Business grew quickly, and in 1993 Matt Snowball Music moved a short distance to our current 8,000 sq ft premises in Brewery Road, just north of London’s Kings Cross. The extra space allowed diversification into self-drive splitter van hire and storage cage rental, and the client list began to grow.
In 2004 an opportunity arose to start manufacturing flight cases, and a separate workshop was set up in Park Royal, northwest London dedicated to flightcase manufacture and custom fabrication. In 2005 this workshop moved just a short distance into larger premises which now also accommodate our splitter bus and gear van maintenance facilities, along with around 4,000 square feet of long-term storage cages.
We now have a full-time staff of seventeen, a fleet of self-drive splitters and gear vans, a warehouse crammed with backline rental equipment, and years of experience in providing what’s really important – great customer service at a reasonable price.
