    Greetings oh most beautifly low down.

    I need to find a good acoustic bass to rent in the Philidelphia area (Potts Grove) for the week of May 7 thru 13, 2006.

    I've tried rentabass.com but the only one listed in Penn. is in Pittsburg.

    Any and all clues would be appreciated.

    I rented Two Basses out a few weeks ago for two days to 2 Bassists from Sweeden. Give me a call and we will see what you need. The Two I had rented were these; http://www.kensmithbasses.com/DoubleBasses/Mystery2/Hungarian.htm

    I don't have anything lower end and my other Basses need a guard to be out of my presence..lol.. (insurance problem actually but true).

    Call me and let's see if the situation is compatable.

    Description of instrument(s)
    This is a 1967 Karl Hofner 3/4 bass with an adjustable bridge, helicore strings(at the moment), and a fishman BP-100 pickup which of course you would not have to use. I also have the fishman pro platinum eq bass preamp which sounds pretty good with this pickup. I would call the bass one of good quality but my bow is of poor quality unfortunately. I also have a Gallien Krueger 1001 RB amp with 2/10 and 4/10 cabinets. I'd be willing to meet anyone within roughly the 100 mile radius of Philadelphia.
     
  4. I'm in Phoenixville, west of Philadlphia. What type of bass do you need? Carved, Plywood?

    Thanks,
    Bryan
