Sound Level Meter Rental

THE MODAL SHOP, INC., a PCB Group Company, offers an extensive rental program including the latest sound level meters from Larson Davis, a division of PCB Piezotronics.

The TMS rental program offers multiple flexible options for both short-term and one-time rental of equipment, allowing for expanded testing capabilities at lower cost.  Sound level meters available for rental include Larson Davis’ new model 831, which offers incredible memory storage, 1/1 and 1/3 octave analysis, and the ability to record event-triggered sounds for easy post analysis.  If you need a meter for building acoustics or vibration classification, the System 824 is also in the rental pool.  We also carry complete outdoor systems for unattended monitoring.

Notes TMS rental product manager, Bruce Lachey, “Our SLM rental program allows acousticians with limited budgets to try the latest products before they purchase, as well as to expand existing meter counts on an as-needed basis.  However, the biggest benefit may be the expert application support available for rental customers from TMS’ experienced, helpful application engineering team.  Any question you need answered or application support you need while using our equipment is only a phone call or e-mail away.”

Sound level meters included in the TMS rental program are often available for overnight delivery.  In addition, an experienced network of leading university research laboratories and staff of technical consultants and applications engineers are also available to perform testing for you.  For more information on available products and services, please contact The Modal Shop at 800.860.4867, or visit
