    I have a friend traveling to NYC to play a gig and is wondering if it's possible to rent an upright here.

    Anyone know if that's possible? Any ideas?

    Thanks for any input you may have...

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Thanks, I've emailed the store...
     
  4. At Gage, they have a nice french bass that I once rented. It's smooth with the bow and has a C extension. They also have a few quick speaking jazz basses for all the NYC jazz heavies!!! Be ready with a high limit credit card!

    I have rented the Czech-Ease bass a few times. About 150/week last time.

    Guys,
    Thanks very much! Gage definitely does this (at different levels) and this reantabass site is quite a resource.

    Thanks BassTalk folks-- what a great community!
