I just got into a new band. Top 40 covers/wedding/corporate. I've been a bassist for about 4 years (musician for 24 years). I'm moving up in the bass world, but still growing. Items I had or have to purchase for this band: InEar Monitors: $600 Wireless Monitor receiver/pack: $500 (used, MSRP $800) Wireless bass receiver/pack: $300 (Shure GLxD16. used, MSRP $400) Fun to get new stuff, but ouch, my bank account. Especially because the monitor stuff isn't as fun as new pedals or basses. I hope this band is all they say they are. They're expensive.
