Allowing someone to use your bass at a gig.

Recommended Posts

I am in the firm but polite 'no' camp.

Lent a Mate my Mesa Boogie amp & cab for a gig once years ago and he blew a speaker in it. He was very apologetic and paid for the repair but as the singer in my then band said - If we were going on after them you'd be f***ed!

It's only in the last 3 weeks that I had 2 basses. In 20 years of gigging I've never had a problem, the worst that can happen is the battery go, but I change those regularly, and I can switch out the preamp.



One of my tutors play like that, as does Lee Pomeroy.

It would totally depend who it was. I've let guys at uni use my bass, but I know and trust them.

I only play 6 string basses anyway :)

no not like that, the OMD guy plays a regular left handed bass flipped over rather than a lefty strung righty like Lee Pomeroy! Crazy

I'd be happy to help somebody out if they had something fail on a gig, but if they turn up expecting to blag the use of my gear, forget it.
