So my band just won a Battle of the Bands last night! Woohoo! (i say "last night" instead of tonight only because its after midnight) It's pretty exciting for us =D But anyway, as a prize we got a $250 gift certificate to Guitar Center, and we have no idea what to do with it. Some considerations have been: more/bigger PA speakers (don't think we really have enough mula), moniter(s), a wireless system for the guitarist (don't wanna spend it all on one band member), a subwoofer for the PA (so I can hook the bass in, cause it's not heard well), or to see if we can trade the gift certificate for cash and take a look around the local pawn shops or save it for other things. We're definitely open to other suggestions too, and I figured you wiser, more experienced musicians might know what types of things a band needs. Thank you sirs!
