"Treat-Yourself" moments

When was the last time you looked at the price of something and cringed , thinking, "Can I afford that?!?", and then later coming back and going to hell with it, I'm gonna spoil myself?

For me it was my new Telecaster - I'm so glad I bought it, it's amazing! I might sadly have another moment like this with the Neumann TLM49's I'm eyeing up.


PS. One friend of my Dad's once said, on the subject of buying pricey things and then having to explain it to his wife, "Hell, she'll only complain once!"

Faderport. It doesn't make you sound better, why the hell would I spend money on it?

6 months later, one of the best things ever too. It's just so fun to use and I get all my levels a lot quicker. In terms of time is money, it was a good investment.

For me, that was just last tuesday. I had all my debts well controlled, and figured what the hell.
Ended up getting an ART MPA Gold (currently looking for some NOS tubes), a Blue Bluebird, and an ADK A6.
Though I have to figure out how to pay for all this stuff, I have a big smile on my face when I walk into my studio.
