Using the Barmatz vibrating reed technique we have measured the Young's modulus of NbSe3. An anomaly is observed at T1 (142 K) but not at T2 (58 K). Taken together with published specific heat data our results provide upper (lower) bounds for the anisotropy of the transition-temperature-stress-dependence at T1 (T2).
