All you need to know about renting a Guitalele
Guitaleles are miniature guitars. As their name indicates, they are a kind of guitar- ukulele hybrid. They are about a third of the size of a normal guitar, and even smaller than a child’s guitar, only slightly bigger than a ukulele. A pint-sized guitar and also sometimes referred to as a “requito”, it has been scaled down for ease of use. But don’t be fooled, the guitalele offers the compactness of a ukulele but with six nylon strings rather than four. Being strung with 6 strings gives it the ability to be played like a classical guitar transposed up to “A” (like a guitar with a Capo on the fifth fret), making it an interesting half-way instrument between a ukulele and a guitar. We rent the Yamaha GL1 Guitalele in Barcelona.
WHY RENT A GUITALELE?
- The guitalele is the perfect instrument for travel. If you are looking for a guitar that is fun and small, the Guitalele is most likely the instrument you need. You can easily take it as hand luggage in a plane, with no need to check it in.
- Petite and very lightweight, it is easy to transport from gig to gig, around the city, from the beach to a rooftop.
- It’s cool and unique. The guitalele is quite unusual and you don’t often see them around. If you wanted to try something new, and are used to playing a normal guitar, the guitalele may be a fun alternative.
- These guitars take up no room at all! Even if you are in a tiny hotel room, this guitar won’t make you feel crowded!
Instrument Rental Barcelona rents these small guitars most often to people looking for something a little different, people who don’t have a lot of space to store a guitar, or to children due to its small size
