What determines the rate you should charge? Is it the amount of money that you *can* get? Or is it the amount of money that you *deserve* to get, based on industry standards and your equipment, experience, location, and skill? I know "deserve" isn't the best word to use, but I think you know what I'm getting at. There are guys in my area that charge only $10-15 more than me and they have more experience and better equipment. However, I'm a young musician and I have a lot of leads that they don't have. Some of the people I talk to have no idea about recording and what local options are available. I can seal the deal... but what do you think I should charge, given the questions I asked above? Thanks for advice!
