I am in Tampa also and was looking for a wireless mic rental back in April with no luck. I ended up spending $300 on a Audio Technica 700 from Music Showcase in Brandon. They told me that no one will rent wireless mics due to the fragile technology in them. Very good store with a lot of help and the mic worked flawlessly. I used it in an outdoor stadium for an event and the range and clarity were fantastic. I could be anywhere on the field or in the stands and the mic performed flawlessly. We also had 2 scoreboards on wireless so I was concerned of interference, but I had no issues. This mic system has many different channels, so you can choose a new one if needed. I recommend this system as it feels and performs like it is a high quality system.
Typical music store lies.
To purchase, I would say minimum $500/channel, so that comes out to around $3k. Not sure what fair rental rates are running these days...What should my typical price range look like for 6 wireless mics? The rental would be for a least one month, possibly longer depending on how our show does.
