Sometimes it's just more economical and convenient to rent what you need to get a job done. If you require something for a special event or occasional use, let us know and we'll prepare a quote for you. Here is a brief summary of the fine equipment available through our rental department.
Standard 5 piece kits (bass drum, snare, floor tom, 2 mounted toms) including cymbals (1 Ride, 1 Crash, 2 Hi Hat) throne and hardware. Brand name kits include everything you need except sticks.
Acoustic and acoustic-electric guitars as well as electric basses by Fender, Yamaha and Epiphone come complete with case, strap, and patch cord. All you have to do is pick & grin, and maybe plug in.
Amps for guitar, bass, and keyboards from such great names as Fender, Eden, and others. Something for the live performance, rehearsal, or jam, when your own gear isn't available or just isn't up to the task.
Electronic Digital Keyboards from Yamaha with optional stands, benches and accessories. Portability is the key here as these instruments will fit into most medium size cars and come complete with gig bag and shoulder straps.
Microphones for vocals, instruments (including drums), and special applications such as large diaphragm condenser mics (choirs and other group applications) and wireless hand-held, lapel and headset microphone systems. Many famous brands are represented including Shure, Audio-Technica, and Sennheiser. Direct boxes are also available for amplifying instruments or other sound sources through a sound system with standard XLR inputs.
Powered (8 channel, 400 to 1,000 watt) and non-powered (4 to 12 channel) mixers are available to suit a variety of applications from the compact single or duo to the full show band. Brands include Yamaha, and Soundcraft.
SPEAKERS (PASSIVE & POWERED)
Full range speakers with 10", 12" or 15" woofer and a horn speaker are the backbone of any compact sound system. Available for use as mains or monitors, these workhorses from JBL and Yamaha, combined with one of our great powered mixers or power amp\mixer combinations is guaranteed to get the job done. Add a powered sub-woofer for the larger venues for greater low-end dynamics. Also available: Yamaha and JBL powered full-range speakers and powered bass bins which you can use to supplement your existing system or as part of a system we put together for you.
Mono and stereo equalizers will complement whatever equipment you choose for your gig to let things sound as good as they can, indoors or out.
Par 56 fixtures have been the staple in the world of stage lighting for decades and continue to be the choice of most bands, theaters and clubs. Both regular and LED systems are now available for stage lighting and special effects from Chauvet and American DJ are featured in our rental department. We can "build" a system for you.
Stands for keyboards, microphones, speakers and lights, direct boxes, cables, multichannel audio snakes and microphone clips and windscreens, power bars, extension cords and music stands can be rented as part of your system or separately.
We can help you decide what equipment might be best for your situation and the budget you have available. Just let us know what your event requires and we'll help you figure out what will get the job done for you.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer pickup & delivery service at this time but if you are not able to do this yourself, we would be pleased to recommend a delivery service for you or work with the service of your choice.
If you require the services of someone to set up and operate your system for you, we would be pleased to recommend people in the area who are experienced in this field. Alternatively, we can consult with the sound technician of your choice and provide any technical information and recommendations they might need.
You can reach us by phone during normal business hours or send us an e-mail or fax at your convenience. When sending e-mail, please include a phone number where you can be reached in case we need to clarify something in a hurry. We check e-mails often and reply as quickly as we can, in most cases within 2 hours of receiving your mail. We're looking forward to hearing from you.

Reservations can be canceled at any time without penalty although we appreciate as much notice as you can provide so items not required can then be made available for other customers. Changes to reservations can also be made at any time, subject to availability of items. Rental of items is always possible at any time without a reservation, subject to availability of the items during the time period requested.

RENTAL PICKUP &
RETURNS - DATES AND TIMES
In order to make our rental system convenient for as many customers as possible, the following schedule is generally used for pickup and returns.
RENTAL PICKUP - 1:00
P.M. OR LATER.
RENTAL RETURN -
12:00 NOON OR EARLIER.
This schedule was adopted over the years as it seems to work well for the vast majority of our customers. Most events requiring rentals occur in the latter part of the day or at night, and most people can return items by noon of the return date. This also allows us the morning hours to receive rental returns and prepare new rentals for that day. In all cases we make every effort to accommodate the individual needs of your situation. Your consideration in the timely return of rental items makes the system work best for all our customers by avoiding unwanted waiting.

Security deposits will be refunded upon the return of all rented items, on time and in proper condition.The responsibility for rental equipment is assumed by the person picking up and signing for the rental equipment .
