Our current place is in my finished basement but we have to set up and tear down before and after practice. Which is becoming quite taxing on our old man backs. For this reason, my four piece band is looking for a permanent rehearsal spot and have narrowed it down to two places. The first one is an actual place that rents rooms for musicians to use. Its month to month and the rent is stupid high. It's a 12x12 sound proof room with a motion sensor alarm, key panel, security cameras and class 1 dead bolt. The power layout is great too, 4 outlets on each of the 4 walls. The draw backs is when we have shows, we have to go up and down two flights of stairs and down some long hallways. Not too mention the rent is crazy high. The other option is a 10x15 storage unit, we spoke with the manager and area manager and have come to an understanding and agreement since this storage place has never done this before. We explained to them that it will be loud and they are okay with it because they don't get a lot of business around the time we would be rehearsing and they are in the middle of nowhere. This place is DIRT cheap, load in/out for shows is cake, great security and the room is climate and humidity controlled. The only issues we are seeing is that all the walls are thin metal and we aren't sure how it will sound. We could hang some blankets or something though. Also, our unit doesn't have power so we would have to run an extension strip into our unit (only like a 6' run). We aren't sure if that one outlet can handle a full PA system and 3 guitar/bass amps though. Our financial situations are all different in the band. We all work full time, have houses and families. Obviously the first place is a little out of our budget, the second place is stupid cheap but may have some issues with power. So my question is, which would you guys pick and why?
