So you had a really **** amp .... Then went and bought another one?

On topic, my amp i guess if you count parents paying for it.

i used to do construction and demoliton, we were re-modeling this house that had been foreclosed on (the guy who bought it was flipping it) he told us to just chuck everything that was in the house (previouse owners had moved and left it a HUGE mess), if we wanted any of it we could keep it. while didgging through the trash in a bedroom i found a hardcase that had a REALLY nice epiphone les paul custom in it. i don't know WHO would move and leave that, but finders keepers!!!!!

I received an original Mark Tremonti Wah from him himself. It was one he had used on their most recent Alter Bridge tour. He even signed it for me. He said it didn't sound like his others so he didn't want to use it. I took it home and it works and sounds just fine for me!

i love that amp!!! how much did it cost him?

$2500 used, but it was customized with the tan Shiva grille. He bought it for me after I filmed a commercial in Texas and played some shows around the country. I'm not spoiled though, I thank him for it all the time . It's a freaking beautiful amp, and I just saved up enough money to get a NICE cabinet, not my peavy one. It's nice but it has the heavy metal look instead of the tan vintage look.

1973 Fender super Reverb - 3 hours fixing a computer.

Ibanez SD 9 Sonic Distortion pedal - drummer loaned a guy some money, never got paid back and kept it, he didn't need it, he's a drummer, so he gave it to me.

1970's Wurlitzer Electronic piano - my father had it in the shed out back for years and gave it to me.

1945-47 Electromuse lap steel - my best friend collects antiques and was showing me some of her and her fathers accumulated trinkets, I spotted a lap steel lying on top of a stack of boxes, she gave it to me.

Tascam Portastudio 414 multitrack - friend gave it to me for a few hours helping assemble a metal building.

Not all exactly free, but a few hours of my time was certainly worth the Super Reverb, which sells for $1200 and up in good condition, $1500 or so in the condition mine is in, it was kept in a closet with a cover on it for over 20 years.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...

. . umm, my DS-1 was technically free as I didn't pay for it. The MG my dad was suckered into buying (£300) was his money (sold to get my Laney about a year ago, he only just found out, whoops )

I got a practice bass amp (Peavey 126) for free. That itself isn't the neat thing though. I got it when I got my bass, so it was part of the deal (normal price $70, discounted to $50, then dealt with them till I got it for free). Got it home, decided I wanted a little more and brought the amp back to trade for another one. They gave me the full $70 price off another amp, which they also discounted another $20 off. So I paid $60 for a $150 amp, new.

I bought a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups online. The guy on ebay that I bought it from couldn't spell, so I ended up being the only person bidding on the item (I search for mis-spelled items all the time...). I got two for less than the price of one.

Sold the first one, and kept the second one. I actually made a profit AND got a free pickup.
