right... at the end of next month im going to have around £500 (about $1000) to spend...

the problem is... i have an acoustic guitar (which is just for fun), i have an ibanez with seymour duncans, an epi lespaul with EMG's, a POD XT and an X3.

the only thing left is bass and drums...

i have a load of choice (new guitar/pickups, new effects, new amp, etc) but my cousin is moving out next month too and were turning his room into a proper studio... currently i have an M-Audio delta 66 plugged into my home computer for my studio (regular speakers)... i also have cubase and a few VST instrements (bass/drums/orchestra)

so my question is this... what should i buy with my £500/$1000... just list what you would buy in my situation tongue.gif

i'd like electric drums but not sure if i can get anything worthwhile for that kind of money. if i were to buy a bass however i wouldnt need an amp as it would only be used for studio stuff and i have the X3.
although my friend has a few basses so i COULD lend his if i really wanted too... but it wouldnt be mine tongue.gif

so many choices!!!

i could go with some studio equipment too, new soundcard/studio monitors/mixer/etc)

i really need some help for this tongue.gif

you can use your amp also for the bass even its for lead guitar so guitar bass are cousins. would be better to go to the bass.

Instead of drums I would by studio equipment, firstly good MIDI controller (300$) and monitors (for as much money you can).
Second I would by a decent bass guitar for sure, something like 400-500$.

I would go for good studio monitors, for that money you can get decent ones.. and they are the most important part of the studio because there's no use of other equipment if you cannot hear it accurately smile.gif
