Hey musicians. It's part curiosity for me to see who plays music on Head-fi and how important their personal entertainment systems are to them.
I owned a lot of equipment ranging from PA systems, drums, and my own guitar setup. I sold most of it once finding real work became a priority.
Before I sold everything, my performing guitar rig included:
Peavey 5150 half stack - $1200
Line 6 PODxt Live - $250
Edwards Les Paul Custom (A Japanese Les Paul copy I bought visiting Japan. Never mind it being a copy. It plays better and sounds better than any Gibson Standard I've ever tried and it plays just as well as a Custom. The Japanese yen conversion was good then. Get an Edwards Les Paul and the only thing else you would consider getting is a Gibson Les Paul Custom if you have the extra cash.) - $900
Edwards Kiko (27 fret, scalloped, locking tuners, Floyd Rose, neck-thru) - $1600
That totals almost 4 thousand dollars for just the guitar equipment from working in Mcdonalds, interning, and eating Cup of Noodles. Back then my personal audio system were built-in laptop speakers and Grado SR125i. The Grado helped bring the guitar over the vocals allowing me to copy the guitar easier in whatever song our band wanted to cover.
So back then my music equipment to personal audio system ratio was about $5000 to $120.
Now, I still have the two Edwards guitars but the rest of the band equipment is sold.
Not including the electrostatic amp I have on order the audio system is about $3575.
My total music equipment totals around $2800, but I'm still looking for nice warm guitar amplifier for home use.
