If I run sound for a band. And I bring speaker monitors, mixing board, and ALL the cords and stands and mic's. Plus I record the performance, (16 or 24 track) AND mix it down for CD format the following day. What would you charge? I have been thinking about it, but I'm not sure what to ask for starting out. $$$? I have run live sound in the past (maybe 15 times or so), but not with all this great quality gear. In the past I made $100 easy, just running sound. But this should be way, way better than anything else I've done in the past. FYI---I have all Shure & Audix mic's I also have 4 channels of API and 2 channels of Great River, the last pre I have is a Mindprint (single channel, single tube) pre-amp. So my main hold back is not having about 8 to 10 more pre's. I do have a Avalon U5 DI box for bass, and a Radail DI box for keyboards. So I have about 9 or 10 channels of quality pre-amps. I was gonna start out doing it for next to nothing, but my setup time is like an hour at least, plus driving time. And if I start doing 2 or 3 bands a week, I'll be up ALL night long till about 2am everynight and still have to go to my day job. So I figure, I need to get paid. Plus making this money will go directly to my new gear list. What's anyone else's charge? suggestions? Thanks guys!
