Gear abstinence thread

Recommended Posts

So I had 2 basses and a guitar arrive in 31st, just in the nick of time to count as 2021 purchases. 2021 was a lost cause in terms of GAS so I figured sneaking a few more in wouldn't really matter. 
 

On the plus side, I also sold a bass the same day. 
 

I also paid for a bass from EBay on the 30th that's due to arrive early next week, but according to the rules that's all okay 😂

 

All in, I'm still down in terms of number of instruments and well up on the amount I recouped from selling vs. what I spent, which by some twisted logic makes me a good boy.

I’ll join. 
no new bass specific gear for me 

the only two  thing that may cause a fail is if I save some money for some new IEMS (using the cheapo kZ ones atm )

Or an iem wireless pack (wedding stuff I’m always wired in iem)

anything else I buy this year is gonna be replacements etc for the band. Nothing new and interesting.

Last year's rules were anything in the signal chain, excluding consumables such as strings, and so excluded straps, gigbags etc. Not sure where non-bass purchases such as MIDI keyboards, or things like PA gear and IEM headphones sat. 

 

I don't intend to buy any basses this year, but could be tempted by some decent IEMs if I manage to play live more.  Or a tenor-sized bass Uke like the one at the Midlands Bass Bash. Or a....?

 

Count me in. 👍

@bassfan please add me in too. The bass I’m getting this year has already been fully paid for and I really don’t need to buy anything else so I should do my best to avoid spending money if I can. This can be my support group 🙂

And to the victor goes the spoils....

 

If anyone from the list of runners compiled by Bassfan manages to get over the line on 1st Jan 2023 without buying anything new, I will give them a brand new unopened set of Rotosound nickel roundwounds by way of consolation prize. Now surely that's motivation enough to stay on the straight and narrow.
 

I know, I know...you can thank me later :)

Amazingly I was in until I bought that bloody Lull this morning 😂 Still I think 3 days is my record!

I didn’t even consider you being in to be honest. I’ve only put @AndyTravis on for a laugh 😂 😉

@Al Krowwas an unexpected epic early fail. 😂
