Are you still a slut if you rent?

Are you still a slut if you rent?

I was getting ready to purchase a nice SF12 for ~ 2K when I found out I could rent one for $60/day. Given that I rarley would use it (just to track drums) which I do only 2-3x per year - it would be pure slutiness to buy one when I could rent it for the gigs.

Am I losing the idea? Or am I getting smarter?

If you rental cost for the year is less than buying for a piece that gets minimal use, rental makes sence to me.

I guess if I am slutty enough to know and want to use a stereo ribbon for drum tracking - that's pretty slutty. thumbsup

why not? if you rent something, sqeeze the **** out of it and deliver a product, whats wrong with that? i buy everything because i need to get much experience with the tools. sometimes it takes a longer time to discover the real strength of some gear. but if you know what you want, rent it, make the job and save money you are a true slut. thumbsup

A true Slut does not think about the practicality of renting.

They buy and rationalize. Buy and rationalize. Buy and rationalize.

And sell on Ebay to buy more.

I wouldn't call it so much still being a slut as being slightly downgraded to a tease.
