Subject: RE: A tricky question for paid players
"You have the opportunity to perform, for guaranteed money, regularly (at least every weekend)."

"There are three- and five- piece packaged sets that average $110-$150. Should anything happen to any one of those harmonicas, the price of replacement would be 30% of the total cost of the package."

I very rarely get paid for gigs and the total cost of the various guitars, banjos, mandolins, amps and mics I own is many times the amount of money you're talking about.

I'm sure I'm not the only musician on this board who is having a bit of a sympathy failure here!

...hang on a second... if you don't own a set of harmonicas, how did you even get these gigs? How do you practice?
