Are you on the market for a new piece of gear? What is it? Why are you looking at it? What are you hoping to gain from it?

If you’ve followed HSC for any given amount of time, you know that I regularly warn against Gear Acquisition Syndrome. However, there’s nothing wrong with getting a new toy from time to time!!

As some of you know, my wife and I will be moving into our first house in the next couple of weeks. I am stoked to be leaving the land of renting and into a permanent place. I’ll finally be able to put up proper acoustic treatment, record guitar amps at high volume, etc. etc.

So…I’m budgeting/planning for a few new purchases over the next several months. A few things I’m eyeing:

Who knows what the final decisions will be, but buying gear is always fun.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I am not going to stop making music while I shop for new gear.

That’s extremely important. It’s okay to get new gear every once in a while, but if you’re in a constant state of procrastination while you amass the perfect combination of equipment, you are doing it wrong. Always be making music. Upgrade your gear as needed, but don’t stop making music.

What about you? What’s on your list?
