renting in NY city

  1. NYC bassists... hook me up with a contact for renting a bass when I'm in town.

    I'm playing in NYC at the end of December for three nights. Backline is being supplied. Because of the routing and scheduling of other shows closer to home immediately before and after NYC, I'm looking into whether it makes more sense to have them rent a bass for me in NYC instead of flying with one. This is typically an "upright" gig, but I'll just go with a 4 string electric (ie. p-bass) to make things simple and affordable.

    Tell me who to call to get hooked up for a few days!!

    Try these people:

    They've got the best reputation in town... :meh:

    ...which is easy since they're kinda the only option in town, ever since Carroll Musical Instrument Rentals closed shop.
  5. I guess I was actually asking "besides SIR" who could I rent from? I was thinking there might be a smaller operation that needs the support.

    Maybe an NYC TB'er will be cool enough to loan you one?
