  • If Santa Could Bring You One Piece of Gear, What Would It Be?

    I have two things I'd love Santa to bring...

    A Linnstrument. Jeez, it's cool. Bob Moog would have flipped out over this, it realizes a dream that he had of making more expressive electronic instruments. Let's face it...anything that springs from Roger's brain tends to be pretty darn wonderful.

    A Blueberry Burst SG Supreme. No picture can do the finish justice. I always questioned the sanity of the rich doctors and lawyers who buy guitars that they don't really play, but hang on their walls. What a waste! But with this guitar...I understand. Too bad there aren't any in Gibson's inventory right now.

    Probably this. It's a thing of beauty as far as I'm concerned - http://www.musik-produktiv.co.uk/gib...-10063378.html

    Might have to sell a few limbs on the black market in order to afford it, but then a man can daydream...

    A vocal enhancer that made my voice sound the way I want it t, not the way it actually sounds.

    If that technology is not yet available, I'd be very happy with this:

        I'll take a 24-channel Trident 88 console, or if that won't fit on the sleigh, surely an Allen & Heath GS-R24M with analog and Firewire cards will. I'm not fussy. But, you know, they're different enough so that I could use one in Studio A and the other in Studio B, so, yeah. one of each, please.

          Ken, do you really NEED new tires, and need to get them early? Why not just get new tires when the old ones wear out?

            I see you have more refined tastes than I do

            But I agree, that's a sweetie...

              I've never owned a truly nice acoustic guitar. So a nice Gibson J-45 or Martin D something would be nice.

              That or a couple of Double stacked Marshall JCM series 100 watters.

                I actually did almost need a new tire last week. Got a nail in it. All good now, though.

                If we're expecting gear-related answers (because, really, most of my wishes are not physical things, particularly this year!), I will oblige:

                - Apple to release an iMac with Thunderbolt 3.

                And if the sleigh tips over and I find these have spilled out, I won't be upset either:

                - Some sort of UA Apollo interface, maybe the 8 or 16 one, with Thunderbolt 3.

                - A HD docking bay that is also Thunderbolt 3.

                - A DAW that is intuitive, does not crash, is easy to figure out and/or reads my mind, is easy on the CPU, never requires updating, and sounds like audio going through a Harrison console.

                - A new car that gets 30 m.p.g. and does well on dirt roads.

                - A school district that understands that kids, especially those with autism, need a stable environment, not a revolving door of aides.

                - A large big-beamed ranch-style house amidst the redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking the Pacific with a jacuzzi.

                - A camera that can automatically focus on stars with pin-point accuracy instead of me having to do it manually (this is more for the sake of my personal convenience than anything else) and has no discernible noise up through ISO 100,000 and no hot pixels.

                - A live-in masseuse and an endless supply of massage oil.

                - A live-in maid.

                - A live-in gourmet chef.

                - An avocado tree.

                  Ken, if Santa can bring you those, see if there are any 2-for-1 specials.

                    I'd second Alamo about a really nice acoustic guitar. Maybe a nice pre-war parlor model.

                    The big-beamed house in the Santa Cruz Mountains might be a more practical choice though. If that's asking too much, I'd settle for medium beams.

                      Love to get a hammered dulcimer. Of course, lessons to learn it would be nice too (see all we are doing is dreaming at this point!)

                      Here is one playing "Carol of the Bells"

                        We just spent $100K on all new gear for our company. Another $20k to go for a truck, roadcases and Misc. stuff...The ONLY things I want are GP-10 Synth or GR-55 and Midi pickup for my acoustic and electric guitars

                        Guns are another story!!!! So many I want!!

                          I was just shopping for a Roland electronic drum kit, then got a call from a buddy who said "I've got one sitting in my living room. Why don't you come pick it up?"
                          Funny how things work out....
