Say, for example, you are playing a show with 5 other bands. As things are getting together, you see the other bassists eyeing up your rig and it is soonafter suggested that your rig be the "stage rig" for the night that everyone uses. Would you go for this? How can you say no without seeming like a total tool? I would not be too keen on this, simply because of the wear and tear factor, and also because if my amp blew up with someone else playing it that would really bother me. I've been in bands where other bands, friends of ours, have asked to use our stuff and we always said no. It's nice to be friendly and supportive of other bands, but I draw the line at putting my gear in jeopardy. Am I being too anal? Let me know your opinion. Also, what's the diplomatic way to avoid letting your bass amp get fondled by other players all night without seeming like a jerk?
