How do you guys feel about other people using your equipment. Lately my cover band has been playing with other cover bands and sharing equipment. Nobody seems to have a problem with this but me. I have a 25 year old Peavey combo, it's part of my sound, I love it, it treats me wonderfully, and I fear for it's life anytime anyone else uses it. Chances are nothings going to happen to it, but I go nuts - piss the other bass players off by telling them they can't crank it the way they want to - I hover over it when they're fiddlin with it. I hate doing that, but I feel like it's my baby. They never have a problem letting me use their amps so it makes it even harder, and the guys in my band aren't very supportive. I haven't had THE NERVE yet to JUST SAY NO! It seems like saying no would cause more problems then the anxiety I have to deal with for the 45 minutes the other band is playing. What's your take on this stuff.
