Renting a bass in San Diego area

Discussion in 'Basses [DB]' started by traviswhendrix, Oct 26, 2015.

  1. I'm going to be traveling to the San Diego area soon to play in a theater production, and I'm looking for a good place to rent a good double bass for 6 1/2 weeks. I was wondering if any of you could recommend a place/person that rents good basses in that area? I would much prefer a fully carved instrument, but any leads are appreciated. Thanks!

    Lemur music isn't too far from SD and they would probably be your best bet

    As far as I know, Lemur is the only bass shop near San Diego, about an hour's drive on the 5, on the South side of Irvine. For comparison, it takes roughly 2 hours to drive between LA and SD, depending on where and when you're going. If you're willing to drive to LA, then Lisa Gass at LA Bassworks is probably your best bet, but Stein On Vine is another good option.

    Tom,

    Does Hammond Ashley still have a shop in SD?

    I don't know. I did a quick search to see if there was anyone else I recognized and only found a violin shop.
