Welcome to SIR San Francisco

Since 1971, SIR San Francisco has been an integral part of the Bay Area’s world famous music scene. Our backline services have facilitated the production of many legendary albums by artists such as Santana, Journey, The Doobie Brothers, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship, Counting Crows, Green Day and Joe Satriani among countless others. With over forty years of experience and convenient locations throughout the United States, Studio Instrument Rentals has been established as America’s premier backline company.

In 2015, SIR San Francisco moved into a 14,000 sq. ft. facility in the India Basin neighborhood in the South Eastern part of the city – directly across the street from the Speakeasy Brewery. This move nearly doubled the San Francisco operation and has allowed the return of a rehearsal studio to SIR San Francisco. SIR San Francisco is centrally located to all the major venues and clubs in the city, Oakland’s East Bay, and San Jose’s South Bay, as well as all major freeways. We also serve a vast portion of Northern and Central California and Northern Nevada.

We make it a point to deliver quality service and equipment to your doorstep, around the clock - 7 days a week. We look forward to making your show or event the best it can be, give us a call and let us show you what we can do for you!
