so get this. my lead guitarist (best friend, is 21) is also a teacher at some school for troubled kids. his boss came to him last week telling him we wants him to teach a "rock band" class and take 10 kids and turn them into a band (or two 5 man bands). so he called me and told me he wants me on board, and we have to have an itemized budget drawn up in 15 days!!! anyway, being that i only know bass, i was wondering what you fellas would do? we've figured we're going to spend around $1000 for a drum set, and $1000 for mics, small PA, maybe some used/cheap recording gear, and then $3000 for the rest of the band. if we do a 5-man, it will be drums bass lead guit ryth guit singer. with remaining 3k we'll have to get 2 guits, a bass, and the amps for them all. any suggestions? mics, mixer, pa stuff, guitars??????? lets here some ideas guys! HOW WOULD YOU SPEND OUR MONEY?
