Need Gear For This Weekend?

By John Huston

Stuff happens, there is a solution

How many times have you traveled to a venue for a show that you are playing at and realized that you forgot an effects pedal that is crucial to your sound? Or that you’re tubes have burnt out in your amp and has rendered your amp useless? No matter how much preparation is involved with making sure that your equipment is taken care of, there are always things that can go wrong. In a musician’s life, it is generally Murphy’s Law: whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. Sometimes, these incidents can happen at the worst time. That’s why Just Roll Tape here in Austin has teamed up with Rock’n’Roll Rentals to help relieve some of the stress. They have two locations in south and north Austin that are convenient and easy to find and have a selection that cannot be matched by any other music rental shops in Austin. They give you the option to rent or purchase anything from recording equipment, effects pedals, to karaoke machines, as well as lighting and video equipment. We here at Just Roll Tape are partnering and helping to promote this company because as a venue that records up and coming musicians, we want them to have access to anything that their heart desires, without having to take out a second mortgage on the house.

We wouldn’t recommend just anybody

Rock’n’Roll Rentals has been in the game for 25 years. They have been the saving grace of Austin musicians for the entire length of my life. “(They have) an unbelievable selection, great rental prices, and an incredibly knowledgeable staff”, Bobby Y. Yelp. There are a lot of musicians that are very particular about the kinds of gear that they are willing to use, and this place can handle every kind of esoteric suggestion you can throw at them. Plus, you get the choice of renting the items at a weekend rate and a monthly rate. You will not find a place with lower prices in Texas. If you decide to rent from this company and you keep the item long enough to match the retail list price, then that piece of equipment is your forever. I challenge you to find a better deal anywhere!

My question for you all:

Since we are doing everything we can to improve musicians lives in the greater Austin area, what is the number one improvement that concert venues here in Austin can do to make the experience better for the audience?
