Default Drum Tech Opportunity Tips

Good evening everyone!

I was recently contacted by a drummer because he needs a local drum tech.
While I do not have tech experience, I do have a college education in Contemporary Music Performance and Music Business but know that I am knowledgeable enough to take this excellent opportunity and learn and do what I love. I'm currently a Traffic Programming Coordinator in the broadcasting field, no complaints though, but see this is an opportunity in which I shouldn't let go by.

I would be dealing with Drums and Percussion since this will be in the Latin market.

What tips and advice do you all have? All help would be extremely helpful and appreciated.

Thanks.

So, could you maybe fill in the blanks a bit better? Because it's hard give advice with so little information given. Like can you keep your day job and still do the drum tech thing? Were good pay and benefits offered? Do you have a family and will you have to travel? What will the drum tech job lead to (like sales?) verses your current job. More info is needed please.

Bottom line, be prepared to work like a dog for very little money........and that is from a mate who is a drum tech for a drummer from a major arena touring band.

So yeah, if you can handle that.............go for it.......
