  • Got 150/200USD before I'm broke for years. What to get?

    Hey guys-

    I'm moving into a new apartment now (expensive, because it's adjusted for my mental health issues)-

    Also I'm going to start paying down on my debt (old bills)-

    And will therefore be more or less completely broke for up-to 5 years.

    I got about 200 USD to spend on gear-
    preferably for my guitar rig, that is:

    Epi Wildkat Koa- Joyo nascar analog delay - TC electronic "3rd dimension chorus" (rarely used) Blackstar HT-20mkII -

    got a strap, stand, strings, picks- a gigbag, and I think also a Gator semi-hard case.



    cheers

      Honestly, it would be a smarter move taking that money and putting it aside for things you will need once you get in to your apartment. Now is not the time to spend money on gear. It's your money though so do what you want. But be smart with it.

      If there is anything to get, more strings and picks. Things that will wear out and need changing. Gear just to have more gear is the last thing to look it.

        Using Timber Tones wooden picks. The ebony one hardly takes any wear- but the others grind down fast. Good thing is- a broader, longer edge is no problem.

        Strings I can always afford.

        What I "need" is a coffee maker and - thermos. (and liqour-beer, but that's being taken out of the calculation)

        I really want a 1x12" extension cab, though it's expensive.

        An EH "octavix" used fuzz-
        And a volume pedal.

          Have to agree here. Unless you are needing to make money with your rig, you have what you need right now.

            Take a look at this 1 X 12 with a Celestion Vintage 30 speaker built in, it really won't break the bank and will get you what you really want:

            I got the 2 X 12 and I am very pleased with it!

              $200 won't buy you a lot in the world of guitar, but it can buy a good bit in terms of things you'll need for living.
              If I only had a dollar for every song I've sung
              every time I had to play while people sat there drunk,

                  I can't believe you're considering buying another wildkat after all the threads started where you want to change 90% of it.

                    More or less insane than adding an extension cab to your APARTMENT rig?

                    The most popular thread I've ever made was 1) a joke and 2) based around literally the most inane/mundane question I could think of. That says something about me, or all of you, or both.

                            Sell the Epi and see what that brings - then possibly get something you REALLY like that inspires you to play - second hand of course will get your moneys worth.

                            Extension cabinet in your new apartment - is that really doable?
                            You mentioned you mother does not approve as it were now playing - neighbours at new place might not either.
                            Improve rig for phones maybe?
                            Some multi effect pedal or similar.

                            Just some wild ideas....

                              I love my Epi Wildkat;

                              just wanted to ask around if some upgrades were readily aviable or not.

                              Who told anyone, I didn't like my guitar?
