"Impulse buying," nabiktima ka na ba?
« on: July 27, 2012, 12:28:46 PM »
i'm sure meron sa inyo ang walang kabalak balak bumili ng guitar/amp/pedal/etc pero bigla na lang napabili. Anu mga reasons nyo kung bakit kayo napabili? Nagamit nyo ba talaga yung item or binenta nyo rin? Share your stories :)

ako buti naman minsan pa lang napa impulse buy. it was years ago when i got this Ibanez acoustic. I was new that time to electric and was looking for a guitar cable nang biglang acoustic guitar yung nabili ko  :eek:

buti naman at nabenta ko agad.

Yes. BOSS VE20 (vocal performer) that I never used after my purchased hehe. I was amazed with the features (vox+guitar kase ako), so I thought of it as an additional to my board... and YES, it was traded already to a guitar related FX.

sa philmusic guitar ad, napapa-impulse buy ako - pag tingin ko good or value deal

last time, wala akong immediate plan to get a new guitar (may tele na ako, es335 type, flying v)-but i saw an LP (copy) na burny - 15K -so un i got it kahit wala sa budget

also the bacchus tele i have - no plans at that time to get but the guy was selling for P 12K lang

i should avoid the guitar classifieds

Many times before. 1 guitar, 3 or 4 pedals, cables, accessories, etc. Then sold for a fraction of the acquisition cost. Lugi din after mabenta.

Eto impulse buy lang din. This is probably the only one I did not regret buying.. I was supposedly raising funds for new pedals tapos nakita ko ito. Kulang pa pera ko so humiram pa ako kay r_chino18 pangkumpleto. :wave:

Danelectro Chorus  :-\

Bought it because it was cheap  :eek:

Gave it away as a freebie when I sold my guitar.

Ngyon, research muna bago bumili. Sayang din yung cash  :cry:

Madalas kapag napapadaan ako ng mall, lagi akong nadaan ng Lazer para bumili ng Jazz III picks kahit di kailangan. Ngayon laging walang stocks  :lol:

i'd never leave empty handed whenever i visit a music store. mapa strings, picks, pedals, minsan gitara or amp. then lately i realized that i don't find happiness in playing guitar. mas masaya bumili, mag-unbox ng bagong gamit. so fortunate nalang na i have extra funding for my bisyo. never had a credit card.

kaya bilhin nyo na gamit ko. bentang palugi yan

Minsan lang ako nabiktima nito. A seven string Dean Guitar. And medyo gusto ko kasi tulungan yung nagbebenta.

Para sa akin "more is more". So wala na sa book ko ang impulse buying ata haha! Ang bata pag mas maraming laruan lalong gaganahan maglaro at lalaking matalino at masaya  :-D

Thought I could use a modeller amp after years without a floor unit. So I bought a roland cube40XL. Tinanong ko pa dito yan sa GC. Lol. It's really a cool amp, and on occasion I use the looper function to pitch ideas or record backing tracks whenever I jam with friends.

But... I find it occupies the same space for my needs as the laney cub10 I also own. And quite frankly, I'm happier with the tube amp. Nasa box lang yung roland, waiting for a buyer who could really use a good practice amp (ehem!). Palugi na din yung benta, kasi sayang lang talaga sa bahay namin.

Lesson 1, evaluate what you really need and define the exact situations and possible dates on the calendar you'll really get to use it.

Lesson 2, save the cash, there's always gear you could better afford if you hang on to the money, yung malupit na if you're gonna buy again. Applies to major signal components, e.g. guitar, pickups, amp, and pedals. Otherwise, follow firemodel55's advice and consider them as crap. Gear flipping is a ruthless cycle in the guise of tone-chasing.

Lesson 3, spend the money on small upgrades you could use, spare tubes, cables, pots, caps, wiring harnesses, strings, speaker cabs. At least those teach you how to work with what you have and what affects what.

Lesson 4, avoid the forum if you're a hair trigger away from buying. You are always 'encouraged' and 'consented' to try new stuff.

PS: I must add, if you enjoy having a TON of stuff go through your hands, and lose money in the process for the sake of fun and learning, the lessons above aren't for you! Live and let live lang. I certainly pay my respects to the GAS gods, and enjoy vicariously through their purchases. NGD, NAD, NCD, or NOGD pa yan!

yes. i'm streamlining na, thinking of the space that I have as real estate. kung nakatambak lang at hindi nagagamit, then it has no value to me. benta nalang para mapakinabangan ng iba. yung pagbebentahan, pambili nalang ng turbo charger upgrade para sa kotse :D

kow, makapag-justify na lang ng purchases e hehehe.

anyway, i remember reading something that says kids with "intelligent" toys grow up to be more creative. hmmm, kung ganun, science said so.

buy all the pedals! buy all guitars!
