Is that a lot to pay for a space? I used to do hourlys but I drum and I needed a space to move leave them. For $300 I got a 300ft2 place for myself and its only 15 minutes away even in bad traffic. (I live in chicago). There are also drum shares for $200 but it takes a half-hour to an hour and I have to share with 4 other drummers. I can't bring people up here. The only thing I like is security here but I can't decide what to do. My bandmates live close to this location too unfortunately. Is $300 a lot for myself? Has anyone paid that much themselves?


-Looking into getting my own space
-one for $300 close to me, security is ok. Far from bandmates
-another is for $200. not far but a lot of traffic. Just drums only but free hourly rehearsals for bandmates
-what do? Is $300 a lot of myself? Anyone pay that much?
How far from the first place are your bandmates? Or can't you jam at someone's house once in a while? (try alternating each time to keep good bound with neighbors)

I would only pay that much money if I were planning a career in music or if I had a monthly income over $3000 or something like that.
Yea I figured $300 is a lot. I don't make much and the space seems extremely large. Its about a half hour-hour depending on traffic. For me its the same thing to drive over our current place. I hate driving that far to just drum.

How much time do you want to spend and how often do you plan to go there ?
I have 3 spaces As far As I'm concerned.
1 private for me 150$ (all mine 24/7)
1 I share with other bands 24$ (have keys but can't go when I want)
1 I share with my Main Band 40$ (Can only go with my Band)
The main idea to keep is how easy it is to access it
for yourself (Distance/ Is it 24-7)
So establish your needs and evaluate if 300$ is worth your investment.
Split it with another band or two also. Three bands = $100/ea. Work out a schedule for who uses it when.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
