The issue is that of course most of them want about a thousand dollars a day. Sometimes more. That's fine if you're shooting a commercial, but for us that's about 1/8th of the entire budget of the picture. That's OK, by - and - large they can be talked down in price a little. The thing they're always afraid of is a company coming in and being all like "OK, we need a makeup room, 200 thousand watts of power, this and this, and this. Oh, and we need to move this wall..." So they don't think that $200 for the day will pay for all that.
Nobody seems to make a Fender Tremolux kit. That's just... wrong... That's the 5G9 circuit I believe.
