    I was pretty skeptical....but the Planet Waves NS Mini Headstock tuner is pretty cool. Made a little but of cash selling my old pedal tuner, too.

    Otherwise....man...that's not much cash...maybe a shirt...or some supplies from Lowe's to build a DIY pedal board....or a DIY pedal kit if you're adventurous.

    That's one of those save up more or it get it used type of change.
    I got that problem religiously.

    I saved up for a good year or two to get $350 so I could buy my 2nd and current bass.

    I suppose a new metrenome is possible for $25 or less.

    Whoa. Dude. You paid like $40+ for that magic bean. That's a deal.
  9. Actually, it's a gift card situation... with no particular need to fulfill...

    What about those little Danelectro pedals, any of them are actually useable?
  10. No, I don't need a POD thank you :D

  12. I currently need some strap buttons and straps and some patch cables would be nice.

    Go through and find the weakest link in your accessories; do you use a cheap cable, strap, gig bag, tuner?

    Earbuds? Earplugs if your band is loud.
  17. I've got the 'Milkshake' chorus and the 'tuna melt' tremolo, both are great little pedals. I've had the chorus for around 10 years too, so they last! You'll get used ones for peanuts, if you're willing to go that route.
