I have a three piece band... I am guitar, lead vocals.... What percentage should my bass player (and backing vocals) pay for the PA... I think about 25%... is that outragous?

If you're all agreed to pay for it together it should be 1/3 of the cost for each person. If it's just you and your bassist paying though, 25% is far from unreasonable.

yeah dude, just split it evenly. if he doesn't want to, maybe he's not all that committed to the band.

I would say one person should pay 100%. That way if someone leaves there will be no arguements.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

I agree with Dutch Apples. Eventually odds are somebody will leave, or the band will break up. If it's not a package deal, you could have people buy like a mic or stands or something, and then they own whatever they bought.

We did it in my band also chriss_122 and were about to fire the guy who owned it this week. Our singer used to have a PA but it went up, however he still has speakers and we all own our own mics. I have a few mic pre-amp processors that could be used as a mixer so basically if we did fire the guy who owned the PA, we wouldn't be out completely. All we would need is a power amp.

You could do what some others suggested and do like one person buys speakers, another power amp, GET YOUR OWN MICS, etc. However I really don't like spliting everything in equal parts.
