London Instrument Hire/Rental?

Hey everybody,
My band is touring England for a couple of weeks, November 2nd-12th, and we need some gear. We need a drum kit (4 piece, 20 or 22" kick, rack and floor toms, snare, with hardware), bass amp, and guitar amp (Fender, something bluesy). We are open to all suggestions, have credit cards or cash, would be happy to put the money in somebodies pocket vs. a company (you never know).
Help!

As mentioned on that other thread, John Henry's is probably the place most bands rent gear from. http://www.johnhenrys.com/
They've been doing it for many, many years and provide stuff to big name acts, as well as small independants.
FX Rentals are another good company, for live I would go with John Henry's though.
The best drums in town come from Drum Hire (Mike Udell).
Again, he services all the biggest drummers in the biz. He's a sweet guy too.
If it were me, I would get drums from him: www.drumhire.com
But if you are looking for a one stop shop (they have rehearsal rooms too), I would definitely go with John Henry's.

I second johnhenry's. it's the first choice for touring bands. FX rentals are great (££) but try johnhenry first
