I need to stop buying stuff it’s a real problem at this point
I am being dead serious
Well, payment for the ESP sent out tonight!
Anybody own or use any of the STL Tone Hub Kemper tones? Curious about the new 5153, as well as Andy James and Angel Vivaldi packs.
Want to buy a 6505 and another orange 4x12 with a lehle little dual.
Yeah ....you can get caught up in it real quick...
I'm doing ok for once in life $$ wise ...but still i do my homework try to spend my money once , i dont need anymore big expensive things...just stuff for small projects but im always looking and stopping myself at time's of putting things in the "cart"....lol
I need to log out of Reverb until 2022.
I might get flak for this but, consider staying off the forum for a few weeks. If you’re anything like me this place is a mild (or stronger) form of kryptonite for your wallet.
For the next few weeks just practice/learn more songs and anytime you feel tempted to window shop, go play some video games or something instead. It’s way better to get lost in a few $30-$60 games for 6 weeks instead of making multiple $300-$900 purchases in the same time span. If you have GamePass, even better.
They sell these in kits.
This one is going right over my head
One thing I've done is to keep a pretty strict gear budget. I set aside $50 a month and then keep $500 to use for bigger purchases occasionally. If I don't use it, it just keeps filling up. When I sell gear it goes into the same thing, so it encourages me to sell stuff before I buy anything new.
I do this at Ally savings. They let you set up buckets within the account so you can separate money for different goals. You could also do this internally with a normal savings account and a spreadsheet, or just having a dedicated gear account.
I bought my last guitar through Affirm purely so I could do payments, which I said I wouldn't buy anything else until those payments are done.
LOL...i as well
Yea after reading this i went and bought 20 more George L plugs and stress caps, only used about 7 ft of that 50' roll of .155 cable i bought off Reverb...ill use them in my Rack...wished they had Reverb bucks ...ah maybe not !
Bought a new smaller Cordless drill for my guitar stuff...rack screws , taking off cab backs...
Bought that Monitor riser i seen in the show your rigs thread...
Bought a Expensive Air Purifier for the dust up here in the office , hopefully it will help with my asthma i got diagnosed with 3 weeks ago....asthma meds aren't working that well, you should have seen how much dust bunnies i cleaned out of my mac mini this morning..i bet its in the fans in my power amps as well...will have multi uses ...hope fully
not to side track the thread, but I have bad allergies. There is only one thing that I've found that helps. ...it's an internet home remedy that sounds like BS, but I swear... it works.
Put some vaseline in your nose. I swears it works. I haven't had allergy problems, or been sick period since I started doing it a couple of years ago lol
It basically keeps all the crap floating in the air from going up your sinuses.
Not sure if that'll help with asthma though. But for breathing in general it's been a huge help for me.
More than any of that, really learn to dial in your gear. Learn the eccentricities and quirks of each dial. Also, don't have too much bullshit hooked up. While there are some artists with Mission Control at their feet (Frusciante, for instance), a lot of the pros have minimalist, bare basic pedalboards. The happier you are with the gear you use, the less you want to buy and try the gear you don't have.
I wished it could be that simple but thanks ...its Asthma, all the X-rays, cat scans with dye, breathing tests confirm , hey but i did lower my cholesterol by a table spoon of apple cider vinegar a day...
Breathing is the current of life , so all the NP's and PA's ive dated told me to start with the air that i breath..make sense , many drugs to try out for what works for me ..
Ok ... back on checking out some cool gear people are buying !
lowkey want an otamatone.
also an arctic metal EX so I can refinish it.
You like cheap DIY stuff like me, right? I have several box fans with furnace filters strapped to them sitting around my house, lol. Cheap easy way to filter the air!
You thinking about doing that new ESP Jaw Breaker finish?
I was leaning more towards a blood splatter but we'll see. I still have to finish up some other projects first.
