How do you feel about loaning out equipment to other DJs? Do you have a limit as to what you will loan out or how many times you loan the same piece of equipment out to someone before you make them pay a rental fee? I occasionally rent out gear when I'm not using it but I've began to notice that a certain DJ is just using me and our friendship to avoid having to purchase their own gear. I'm of the mindset that if you have been DJing over 30 years at this point you should have your own dependable sound system. I understand things happen and we all need a helping hand from time to time but I feel like this particular DJ is just using me. I'm at the point where I don't even want to rent out gear anymore. It may sound selfish but when I buy gear I buy it for my needs and when I let others use it for free I am just cheating myself and loosing in the long run. I just want to get other DJs opinions on this topic.
