Kriskov... How much should I charge you in MY band.. for using MY PA SYSTEM and 10s of thousands of dollars in gear? You would never be in any Band I have... ever... you act like you're a hired gun and any band I've ever been in doesn't need to hire help ( for a band member ).... You wouldn't want to pay for the use of the Bands PA would you? All in a band pay for basics man... Like a bloody PA or up-grading. Any band that doesn't have cases full of leads / chords etc, is not of the caliber I work with. I was responding to a post using the term "professional" which I consider having different meaning to different people / bands... I for one never have and never will work with a band as you propose things... A band that doesn't have cases of strings.. leads.. and essentials... is not professional in my book. You don't want to pay for someone elses strings or leads eh? Wait till you get the bill for everything else you'll be paying for with your "job"... Pay for the PA up-grade man... Pay for the tech and roadies.. pay for the leads.. strings.. equipment and hundreds of required tools and gear for The Band. Hell man, who do you think PAYS the producer? or for the Studio time? Maybe a small time bar/pub band is what some consider professional or a "job" but I'm talking about the real thing... Try going to a studio and having them say they don't have a lead or gtr strings lol... call that a job? try calling it amateurs.. People can claim they are pros... but if they sweat strings and leads and CRAP... I never wasted my time with 'em... I've got better work to do.
