When you're married..with or without kids or grandkids, I think there is always some angst before buying a big ticket item for fun. It's not like it isn't going to be felt in the family pocket book. But .... music isn't just music, it's therapy.. Therefore, everyone around you benefits. Maybe think of it that way.. You'll be easier to live with :lol: (Just make sure your wife gets to buy toys too..)

Great ideas!

Well, I have 4 children, but two of them are already living out of the nest (and have their own income), so we are now living with less financial pressure than some years ago. It is one of the good things of getting older :mrgreen:

Therapy... yes, that is the key!. I will run now to the NI WEB site... err, to my therapy session (Y)

I am in that wonderful situation of having a wife who is always encouraging me to go for the most expensive keyboards and guitars and I am the one who is holding back. But then I don't need expensive instruments. I have owned plenty in the past and I find I am much happier getting the best out of something that doesn't put a strain on the bank balance.

I have bought a couple of bits of software this past week and that's enough to keep me going for a while, plus I have some superb quality acoustic guitars so, everything else can stay on the "wish list" :)

I am at the happy stage in life, where we are fairly comfortable, and the good lady has her hobbies and I have mine and we can afford both. Most of what I purchase comes from work bonuses, band income (not much theses days.....) and what I get from selling my librarians, so it does mean I can indulge a little.

I do need to call a halt on purchases and learn/make use of all of the recent acquisitions, the danger of buying too much is not getting to know what you have. I am really looking forward to the Christmas break and the chance to make some music after a crazy year.

The last song I did "Mist on the Silk Road" stems from last Christmas, and my purchase of Ethera, which is scary! Heaven knows where 2019 went!

Always exciting waiting on the downloads...well as long as you are on a fairly fast connection of course ;)

Will be very interested to hear what you think of it all. (Y)

I was going to write a similar post asking did anyone get any nice deals on new gear this 'Sale Season'
To me it seems more a pre-Xmas sales thing; warm up the wallet and rub the chip on your cards! - I rub my chip a lot lol, no not a euphemism: its oft not reading and I read that a sweaty-salty-finger rub can fix that!
But, I digress...HOT DEALS?!
I actually (and now regretably) bypassed/ignored all the black friday, sexy saturday, hot sunday and cyber monday deals...then I saw in my Thoman shopping basket a mixer I meant to buy! :D
Oh well, there's always the post-xmas January sales ;)

Gear I miss: almost all of what I got rid of! :D Nostalgic for my Yamaha TG33 & RM1X. Good days with them :D

Well you can pretty much guarantee there is going to be a whole load of new sales in a few weeks time. There is the pre-christmas "bargains" and then the after christmas sales which tend to go on for at least two weeks...probably running the whole of Jan. And of course there are often big discounts through the year. You can be sure that mixer will drop in price again very soon! (Y)
