    In case you haven't seen it, Sweetwater is running a promotion in which they're going to randomly pick a customer who has a wish list on their site, and give them all the stuff on their list up to $5000. So besides the dollar limit, it obviously has to be something that Sweetwater carries, so custom basses and many brands are off the table. Nonetheless it's a fun little exercise.

    Here's mine:

    * Mesa/Boogie Subway WD-800 amp
    * Darkglass DG212NE cab
    * EBMM StingRay 5 Special HH

    And then a couple things for my guitarist son (100w Boss Katana amp, EHX Deluxe Mistress pedal).

    How about you? What's on yours?

    I just joined up...well, technically my sister in Florida did...she just doesn't know it yet!:)

    I'm actually pretty surprised about how much I could get for $5000.
    List includes ...
    Squier Classic Vibe 50's P bass.
    Fender Vintera 50's P bass.
    Martin BC-16 ABG.
    Ampeg PF-50T Portaflex head.
    Ampeg PF-112HLF cab.
    Shure SM-58 mic.
    A couple of sets of LaBella DTF strings.
    Logjam Stompbox.

    Yep, 5 grand is a lot of money. I went for big-ticket items that I'm less likely to buy myself, exactly because they are big-ticket items...

    You can get a lot for $5K. Maybe I’ll post a list later if I have time. I have to spend $1K on my car for repairs so...

    Do they have beer or something you can eat?
    I have some sort of anti gas mood lately.

    Sorry, don't hate. If there's any change I'd pick up some unicorn pedal that I don't need, the weirder the better.

    that was surprisingly difficult to come up with $5k worth of gear that I want. Easy enough to start with a CLF L-2500 and and Ibanez fretless 6-string. I padded it out with a few studio mics, a snake, a GK cab to match the one I've got, some hand percussion, a new keyboard stand... I mean if anything this just tells me I've already got everything I need!

    From what I remember, I think I've got an Arturia PolyBrute, an AEA ribbon mic, and a BAE mic preamp in there. Guess I could swap that out for a Sequential Prophet 10 if I wanted to go for a big-ticket item. (As if it matters, given the odds, of course.)

    I'd put in a couple of USA Musicmans (5 string H stringray, and a Luke3 or Cutlass guitar)

    I'd take a Mesa D800+ and a couple speaker cables. They can keep the rest.
