Rental microphones in SF Bay Area? (Grand Piano)
« on: November 28, 2021, 12:05:15 PM »

Hey everyone,
There is an artist performing inside a church in San Jose with a grand piano and his rider is requesting the following:

2-Neumann KM184 mics with clips and 2 big boom stands.

2- DPA 4099 mics with clips

Does anyone have these for rental in the area?

Thanks.
-Sam

You could call an Earthworks dealer and see if you can get a demo PM40 kit, those are nice. I'm not direct with Earthworks anymore but Mike Pyle could probably sort that out for you.

I emailed you and George Edwards over at Sound Image, he can likely help you. If that doesn't pan out, Location Sound and Trew Audio in LA probably have the DPAs.

Haven't heard from George yet, but it appears these mics are a pain in the a$$ to come by as I'm searching other connections/companies..
What would you recommend as available replacements for those mics?

Thanks.

Have you tried Raul over at Third Ear?

If not, I do see them available as rental items on micrentals.com.

Sounds like there's a local option, but I'll mention that we do ship 4099 rentals out on a pretty regular basis.
