Preamp Rental in Austin/San Antonio

Hello,
Seeing as it nearly impossible to come to any kind of consensus on just about any piece of gear out there, I'm interested in renting a couple pieces to decide for myself if I can tell what sounds best for what I do.

Just wondering if anyone knows of anyplace in South Texas, probably Austin or San Antonio that will rent/loan gear to make a purchasing decision?

I'm in the preamp and Mic Market.

Gear I'd like to hear:
Pre's by:API/Great River/Pacifica/Vintech/Chandler/Aurora,etc,etc.
Mics:Mojave, Pearlman, Peluso, Soundelux, Charter Oaks,etc,etc.

Thanks a lot.

I'd say the best bet is to ring up Mark Warren at 5 am Studios and book a little time since he's got a good array of mic preamps there. I think he's got GML, API, Wunder, Pacifica, and a couple of Chandler things.

You should be able to get a decent rate to go in a horse around with the stuff.

There's one gear rental place here in Austin. I called one time to ask if they had any recording gear:

"You guys have an 1176?"

"What's that?"

"It's a compressor"

"Oh, it's a pedal?"
