Hey all;

Looking for some thoughts from the community here...

I have a home studio and have taken a few steps to ensure security.

1. I book by appointment only.
2. I do not publish my address. This information is only given upon booking.
3. I have a "you are being video recorded" sticker on my door.

Despite my best efforts, I had a band come in that has some plusses and minuses.

Plus:
- signed to a small label that is a partnering with a major label for a compilation release.
- Canadian band with good press, even as far away as the UK
- they want to record their album with me.

Minus:
- the singer has a... history. She was originally charged with murder. The crown withdrew that charge, but she was subsequently charged with being an accessory to robbery. She spent two years in prison. (her and her then boyfriend were heroin addicts who robbed a guy for his medications that he was on... he died in the process)

Which leads me to the question - What do you do to ensure the safety of your gear, your self, and your family when people come in to record?

Interested in whatever you have to offer.

Thanks!
CT

If you've gotten to the point where you are running this bad movie in your head 24/7 I recommend a decent insurance policy. You can fortify the fuck out of whatever you want to, but you are just caging yourself. That seems to be the plop of dogshit on the scales of this stinky equation that makes the insurance route worthwhile. They wouldn't be in business were that not the case.
