HA3000 - £200 (i guess they chose the wrong time to put it on ebay!)



HA! Mine cost me £90, in a rack case


I have my 70's mod jazz (£269)(Flight case-£35)
HA3500 + Flight Case (£90)
Genz-Benz 2x12 neo cab (£200)
BOSS LMB-3 (£80)


I got my £1000 amp for under £300......Yes, the shop owner did say it was deal of the century........Oh, and i know i'm a very lucky £$%&^. The head was second hand and it had been in the shop a while, £90 is what he brought it in for so, yeah. The cab had been there about a year for £500. I said i was looking around and he said its mine for £200..........Btw, £500 was an amzing price too begin with


My BOSS pedal was actually brought from a music LIVE show (Where things are meant too go cheap!!!!) I was not happy when i checked the net. Meh, i dont mind to be honest.


And the bass........Well, everyone rants about this being the best cheap bass, but mine is something more. The wood grain is so much more better, it plays and sounds as good as a MIA (we even sound checked it with the shop owners MIA). Its my baby.


Next on the list is an early 80's MusicMan double humbucker. The front pup is a kent armstrong. Its worth about £1300. The guy says no less than £500. I'm gonna give him £450 cash and see what he says. either way its mine for a stupidly low price.

I refuse to actually tally it all out, since it makes me seem much richer than I am, and typically the gear I buy is funded by the money I make selling gear at a 100% profit, which I bought with funds I got selling gear at 100% profit, and so on...

But I WILL say this... I payed $800 for my SM-900 and $550 for my Mesa 212. That's $1350 for about $3000 Canadian dollars of gear. I still have these leftover cabs I'm dying to get rid of, though...

I will admit that I have over $300 of bass straps.

Total (excluding probably $200 worth of guitar gear): $5150

DISCLAIMER:
I am well aware that this is a lot of equipment for a 17 year old, but I paid for all of this gear with money that I worked for. Neither I nor the members of my family are rich or even "well off" (lower middle-class at best, broke at worst). I made a lot of sacrifices in order to afford my equipment because music means more to me than almost anything else in my life and, as a result, I don't want to hear any **** about how "spoiled" or "lucky" I am. It's liable to piss me off
I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

My first bass and amp were a give, as were my Fulltone, The Barge Concepts and half of my current amp. Still, I'll put up full prices for sake of argument, in order of acquisition.

Squire J bass, Affinity series - £170
Peavy Max 126 amp - £50
Warwick Sweet 15.1 - £250
Boss ODB-3 - £65
Warwick Corvette 5 string (bubinga with ebony fretboard, passive/active electronics) - £750
Fulltone Bass Drive MOSFET - £105
Q-tron Plus - £100
Barge Concepts VBF-2 - £90
Diago Powerstation - £55

On top of about £100 worth of cables, strap, tuner etc.

Total - £1735


And I sort of want a wah, a fuzz and the possibly an octaver, chorus or flanger. The only reason the amp isn't getting upgraded is that I am heading to uni soonish, so a larger amp is unneeded, and I like my current tone a lot.

Actually, the Weeping Demon is a bass wah. That range switch puts it into the bass range, which can be emphasised with the little knob under the toe of the moving bit. For such a a great pedal, Ibanez do very little advertising.
