What gear did you give/get for the holidays?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by AHDBassist, Dec 25, 2011.

  1. I was wondering what GAS got everyone this holiday season. I got a Squier VM Jazz V and am thrilled. I gave my dad a SR300 and as small amp. You?

    The wife got me a Schecter Stiletto 5 string. It is in the shop getting a setup done, so pics will have to wait.

    Once I get my hands on it, I officially hand over the Stiletto 4 string to my son. We also got him a Fender Rumble 30 to go with his new old bass.
  3. My dad got me a Boss RC3 loop station for X-mas. Wasn't really on my GAS list, but damn if he's gonna drop that kind of money on me I'll take it!

    I got a boss rc-20xl looper from my parents, and I got my dad (a guitar player) a bad monkey overdrive. Everybody won! :D

    I purchased a Yamaha portable grand piano for my daughter... If she only liked bass I'd she'd be set for the next few Christmas gifts :)

    I got the joy of hearing my 10 yr old play a handful of Christmas tunes on her new keys, and a bigger smile than my last few bass/gear related purchases.

    Nice VM Jazz 5 btw

    As for me since I haven't worked most of this month I have been selling basses.

    I did acquire a rare Rickenbacker 5 string but I have been trying to sell it.

    That Mikro looks pretty sweet. Nice score. I was hoping my daughter would like bass, but hey what can you do? Kids like what they like. I'm just glad she digs music.

    I got an eBow to play around with.
    My wife got Rocksmith and a promise that if she actually learns to play guitar with it I'll get her whatever kind of amp she wants. (yes, she actually mentioned wanting this game)
  12. Nothing bass-related this year. Hopefully next year.

    My wife got me a new hard case for my Wick. Not worthy of pics, but it was very thoughtful of her. I am going to get some foam to make some custom inserts tomorrow, I was thinking packaging-like styrofoam covered in a soft fabric? Is there any particular type that anyone knows of that would work well?

    I use my Way Huge for bass sometimes. It makes my guitar sound like a distorted bass, and makes my bass sound like a distorted satan.
  15. I bought my girlfriend an iPod Touch. Does that count?

    The Mikro is pretty sweet ... it is a guitar sized bass ... it is a good starter bass. I did a good setup on it and it plays and sounds good. It is a little too small for my hands. My daughter loves the blue.

    for once i bought myself a christmas gift this year, this 1975 ripper.


    complete with ALL of its original case candy (including a 45 RPM demo of it):


    fortunately my wife didn't mind. i guess since i bought her a new large leather bag, a new watch, some pricey perfume and some lingerie (but the last one was really for me ;))
  19. Santa got me a Zoom R8. Finally get rid of my Tascam DP-1. :D
