All,

I need to rent a soprano saxophone in Toronto for two or three weeks in mid-late September for a gig. My first instinct is to call Long and McQuade, but is there any other reasonably priced shop that does rentals?

Thanks in advance.

L&M is a great choice as they typically have different levels of horns available, not just the student stuff. The best location for selection would be the Bloor W store...talk to Greg upstairs in the band department and he'll hook you up. The other locations might be a bit sketchy on sop rentals.

Cosmo Music in Richmond Hill is another alternative.

Bloor L&M is great

I used to work there with Greg, Kris & Colin. Don't know if they're all there still.

Who's doing woodwind repair these days? Gary? The other fellow did flutes (I forget his name) and not much else.

That's always been a great L&M store. Their rental rates and policies are the best.

Thanks for the tips, guys. L&M on Bloor West was my first guess too, so I gave them a call. They seem to have a couple of decent intermediate models at reasonable rates, which will be fine for my needs. Cosmo is a bit of a trek for me but is good to know about.
