    For a present? Why do you need a loan for a present someone else is buying you? Hey man, I smell a rat here!!
     
  7. Not a present... just out of the kindness of your pure heart ❤️

    Hmmm...
    How about a full setup and fret dress from a decent pro? That would be worth a look...

    Get a Fodera.
    If you can’t swing the cost, get a fedora to wear on gigs.
     
  10. Kind of hard to suggest something when we don't know the approximate budget of your prospective gift giver. Are talking new bass money, effect pedal money, or bag of picks money? What I really want right now is a power supply that will run half a dozen pedals. I don't use a of of pedals, not enough to need a board, but sometimes it's annoying running each pedal off its own little power supply.

    Maybe hire a roadie for a night. Or a groupie. Nah, a roadie.

    Happy almost B day!

    Imo, looper is handy. Beyond its musical capabilities, it’s a useful utility tool.

    I use my ditto all the time for stuff like soundchecking and testing. For example, looping a bassline, then twiddling knobs on another pedal or the amp to see how it responds to the line. Or when I’m wondering how loud my amp can be heard outside or upstairs or across the room, I’ll loop a line, then take a walk and find out.

    I also use it for the usual rehearsing/composing/jamming stuff as well, but I was surprised how much I use it for other purposes.
     
  15. Thanks TCT. Sounds like you get great use out of your looper. Something I guess I need to think about.
     
  16. A good quality stand is always nice. I love the big fender guitar stand my band shares. They make them to hold hold 3,5, or even up to 7 instruments. The fender ones are a bit pricey but there are some more affordable knock offs of these also.

    Beat Buddy (by Singular Sound) drum machine pedal. It will help your timing and is super fun to jam along with. The Beat Buddy Mini is the one I have. That's all I need. They do make much more robust version that can be programmed. The Mini has a crapload of drum patterns and genres and a metronome but cannot be programmed which is fine for what I use it for. Happy Birthday!
     
  20. Why would you ask for anything for your birthday? Wouldnt you just go buy it yourself with approval from the mrs?
