... with my dad. He said I can buy a guitar or a bike I want, and now I'm seriously contemplating getting some really good gear in my hand now... so I got 60k for buying gear. So... I can spend 12ish for drums(my sister has been wanting to buy them for a while now, plus I'd love to get my hands on a good rum set and learn myself.) So I got 50k to spend on gear for myself. I was thinking some 28ish k for a guitar, 18k for a processor and then buying a loud amp with whatever I got left. Now suggest me stuff, now this gear has to last be forever , unless I go pro I don't want to have to upgrade, ever. How much did your KE3 Kelly cost ya Jay, man? How much does the POD XT cost? Any 80watt amp for say 5k? Amp with nothing but a volume and 3 basic eq settings.
