Getting into music, whether you want to make it into a career or have it as a hobby, is one of the best things to do. It improves coordination, inspires creativity and can be very relaxing.
Unfortunately, music can also be expensive. The instruments, equipment and accessories you need can be a lot of money up front, but they will last you a very long time.
There's another way to get the instruments and equipment you need without making the investment right away, though — renting with Bananas at Large. Whether you're looking to try out a system before buying or need something last-minute, we've got you covered.
We've got everything you need for your upcoming event and we're dedicated to making your event set-up as easy as possible! We've been in business since 1974, so we know how to help find you all the equipment you'll need.
Record at Home With Top-Quality Equipment
If you're in a band and want to make some recordings, you have a few options. You can rent a studio, but that can be pricey. You can save some money by recording at home, but you need all the right equipment. Setting up even the simplest home studio can cost somewhere between $400 and $500.
You can still create some great quality recordings using excellent equipment without spending as much money when you rent from us.
When you already have a home studio but not all the instruments you want, renting is a great option, too. Need a drum set, bass, keyboards or guitar for a track that you're working on? Rent it short-term from us!
If you find that you like the equipment or instruments you rent, you can always plan to add them to your setup in the future. Prioritize the pieces you like the most and invest in them later on.
Get Everything You Need for Your Next Gig
Whether you're in a band or are a solo artist, you've probably performed at a variety of different venues — and sometimes, you may face unexpected issues. They may not provide all the equipment you need to get the best sound, or you may not have the equipment that's optimized for an outdoor performance. You don't want to cancel a show, so what do you do?
For a temporary fix, rent the equipment you need for your next gig.
To set up a more immersive sound, rent a portable PA system and a mixing board. You can control all the different instruments and equipment you're using all in one place — if something needs to be adjusted, you can do it right there.
Does your instrument need some repairs before your next gig, and it won't quite be ready? You can look through our instruments that are available for rent to get a quality backup, so the show can go on.
Setting up a gig at a bigger venue than you're used to playing at? Find some extra loudspeakers or amplifiers to make sure the entire audience can hear you. Don't let any parts of your show get drowned out by any competing noises and sounds.
Reserve your equipment from our San Rafael or Santa Rosa store locations. Book early for best selection. Rentals are on a per-night basis and any additional nights are half price. To check availability, please contact us by e-mail, fill out the form or give us a call at: (415) 457-7600.
