I wonder if I could get your views on rehearsal space. What do you look for when hiring rehearsal rooms ? Cost , location , near public transport , quality of gear for hire , availability at certain times of day/night , room size , easy access to the room for gear unloading , availability of raw recording equipment , near a bar ...... If you hire gear, what do you and the band usually hire ? PA , drums , amps , mics , cables , keyboards, PC tools ...... What hacks you off most about rehearsal space ? Unhelpful staff , poor equipment , rates , time slots available , poor room acoustics ...... Any of you double on drums ? What elements of the kit do you bring to rehearsal and what parts would you expect to hire ? Cymbals , snare, kick drum pedals .. Are you prepared to hire rehearsal space without the ability to get a demo quality recording burnt ?Do you/would you use a sound engineer to get a demo quality recording or are you able to get that done yourself. Any other points all gratefully received. And yes, that's right, I'm toying with the idea of starting a rehearsal space. Should it ever get off the ground there will of course be a discount for visiting TalkBass folks. Thanks for your help one and all.
