Where to Buy or Rent Gear

Here is a listing of some of the shops around the country who specialize in sales and/or rental of Production Sound Equipment.

We have not included the big box houses who only offer sales (but minimal service, advice, or after- sale support). Instead, we prefer to focus on companies that have been around awhile, tend to be owned by sound mixers or industry experts, and are really there for you when you need some help. Yeah, you may pay a few dollars more, but as a Professional -- what you receive in return is well worth every penny!

By the way, none of these are paid ads or listings. This is just a directory for the benefit of our readership. Please feel free to submit feedback to us about any of these dealers, or to tell us about dealers that ought to be added to this list.
