There are not many companies that have been around as long as Adoph Gasser. If there is no greater measure of success then years in business, then Gasser is a superstar. Since 1950 they have been serving the professional and hobbyist still, film and video community. We know Gasser, the folks that came before us knew Gasser, and most certainly the people coming along now and in the future will also know them. They have an old school style that is rare these days. For us old school means down home, where everyone feels welcome, and that they have people who know what they are doing and love to share that experience with their customers. They have an excellent rental department which includes brands that we know and respect like Sony Canon Sachtler Sennheiser Arriflex and much more. They have a range of hd camera, lighting kits, camera support, monitors mics etc.
Of course they have an excellent still department. As we all know as time moves forward the differences between video and still technology is getting smaller and smaller. You see more instances where feature films getting released had some part of their footage recorded on a Canon 5d Mark II and the like. So the fact that Gasser speaks both these languages fluently is a real asset for their customers.
We like Gassers. We like the look and feel of the place and their multi levels of departments. It always makes us feel like we are going to discover something that nobody else knows about. Also they have free parking right across the street at their convenient downtown location. These guys are a local institution and have earned and re-earned our loyalty and respect. If you havent been there, or its been a while, its time to stop in, browse around and say hello. Adoph Gasser Inc, an example of old school staying relevant.
