This might be the first time i've posted in the pit... but I thought I'd get some people's opinions...

Ok, so the bassist in my band asked me if his brother could borrow my PA system (which consists of a like 1970s radio amplifier and my cab for my stack) to use for my bassist's graduation party tomorrow.

I told him no, because I've lent a lot of my equipment out before... and the last time I did, I never got my guitar strap back or a few cords... so I decided to not lend out anything to ANYONE anymore... and my bassist is pissed at me. (like super di duper pissed guys im super serial)

... and he doesnt understand where I'm coming from.. so am I being a dick by not letting him borrow it or does he just not understand where I'm coming from in not letting him use it?

Since it's your desicion wether or not you want to lend it to him, he shouldn't be pissed. He should just accept it.

I have a friend like you, we make fun of him all the time. I'd be pissed as well but it's your decision.

You should be on your knees asking for his forgiveness, i mean its your BASSIST.

Bassists are far better people.

Im on your side... iunno...try explainign to him again that you're sorry but you're not gloing to lend anything to anyone and cant make any exceptions as others may want to be exceptions too and it'll all end a big mess and you might loose equipment in the process

Not even a real instrument?! You are diluted. Anyway. Its your decision, he shouldn't be mad. Tell him to quit being a pussy and buy his own if he needs one so bad.

Even if you got in a fight for nothing, he's pissed because by not lending it to him, you implied that you didn't trust him.

If you did trust him with your stuff then you should have lent it to him, if you didn't then its understandable not lending it but I can see why he's pissed...

Que ignorance! Anyway I agree with you, threadstarter, 100%. I never lend my things to anyone and look where its gotten me...not broken stuff, or having stuff.

Rule #1: Musicians are thieves.

At the last gig my band did, some arse stole our lead guitarists effects board. Its not like its small either.

They weren't smart enough to take the power adaptor though. Gits.

I dont lend anything to anyone i dont know i can trust. Friends yes, friend's friends/brothers, no.

Your bassist has every right to be pissed. He's a bassist, and everyone is a dick to him already, you denying this sharing of a PA is probably pushing him over the edge.
