    I am considering going this route... My friend owns a studio with a HUGE tracking room that sits unused most of the time .. drums are set up.. soundproof... private. What would be a good deal for say once a week practice? What do you guys that use them pay?

    So it would be like an hourly rental? For a model on hourly rates (in the Boston area) check out Jamspot: http://www.jamspot.com/

    I've payed $20Hr in some cities. Austin had a 2 for 1 on Sundays. There was usually a grace period for load in and load out.

    I've paid $20 an hour in Washington DC, though the space was sketchy (complete with a porn photo shoot...no joke)!

    $32 for two hour minimum, outside of Philly. Drums, amps, PA, all provided although most of the stuff is beat.

    $20 an hour is something I could afford.

    Of course, I'd bring in an H2 and be using it to record in as well. In fact, I could get some good live to 2-track recordings in a room like that with the right players.

    yah, $20 and hour is about the rate around here as well...

    we also have some 24hour access rooms you can rent that work out more economically if you practice a lot (especially if 2-3 bands share a space)

    We rent a rehearsal studio monthly. 12x25 for $325. Split 4 ways it's not a burden. It's worked out well. 24 hr access, nice rooms, heat and a/c, no hassles.

    24hr access, 20 x 24 room, 400.00/mo, split 4 ways works well, heck it's bigger than most stages in this town:band

    We have a 12x15 with AC and lock out. Noon to midnight during the week, noon to 2AM weekends.
    500/month.

    In San Diego. Its a lot of $$$, but its worth it.
