Based in Auckland, Tone Deaf can service any location or venue in New Zealand.

We offer delivery and pickup within Auckland (if the gear fits in our van), and if not we can arrange something bigger to get it to you…

Born in the late 1980’s from an existing production service company run by Peter Grumley, Tone Deaf started in true eighties style with a brown sofa purchased for a dressing room.

From there Peter’s love of nice guitars and shiny musical things saw his collection of gear and the Tone Deaf rental business grow exponentially.

So, as well as our huge range of backline, we have specialist, rare and vintage music equipment and instruments too – including sought after Whurlitzer, Fender Rhodes, Hammond, Lesley and Hohner.

We also have a huge quantity of crowd barrier – stocking product from EPS and Tone Deaf’s own bespoke system used effectively for hundred of shows.

The largest supply of USA power distribution systems and 110 Volt transformers in New Zealand available for hire

Send us some details,
and we’ll be in touch…

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Or let us know what you’re looking for and we will always do our best to source it for you.

We also have great contacts throughout New Zealand, who we like to recommend and connect with our clients when they can be of help too.
