Music is a funny business. It can be one of the toughest ways to make money, yet instruments, PA gear, and recording equipment can be notoriously expensive. Plus, it seems the amount of gear you need to put together a great record or an awesome show gets to be more and more every year.
Go into a typical commercial or home recording studio or band rehearsal space, and you’re liable to lay eyes on thousands upon thousands of dollars of value.
But what if you don’t have the scratch to accumulate that much gear? You’ll have to make the most of what you've got. It turns out this is very doable.
Here are a few tips for making the most out of not much gear.
There’s no getting around equipment in music – you’ll need some. And it’s ok, if you have the money and the room, to load yourself up with fancy toys and play to your heart’s content. But if you don’t, you can still make a ton of awesome music, and sometimes working around a limitation or two can cause great creativity.
So, don’t be afraid to do whatever you can with whatever you got!

Guitarists are an interesting bunch. Although we strive for individuality in our musicianship, style, and sound, we are shaped by the players and bands who inspire us. As a result, our gear choices lean towards using what our heroes used and, in some cases, purchasing the signature gear of our favorite guitarists. Not only do we buy it to show our love and support but often we believe the signature gear will get us THAT MUCH CLOSER to achieving the tones of our heroes.
Here we’ll give you some tips on getting YOUR sound from signature guitar gear.
