I'm actually selling off a bunch of stuff, so my real holiday hope is that I can find buyers for a lot of it... not only to make room in my overly cluttered life, but also maybe give other folks a nice holiday. I will probably post a list over in the sales thread on the Keyboard Corner forum.

I am not really in a 'buying new toys' place right now, but if everything aligned right, a Hydrasynth might be nice...

2 things I want, we'll see if Xmas sales make it feasible.

An expression pedal for my Boss Katana amp so I can have a wah.
Still in testing but I am planning on switching to the new D'Addario XL strings, they are really better in many ways. If they go on sale I'll get enough for the year.

As a bonus, I would like another Boss TU-10. I have one, having tried all sorts of clip on tuners the Boss is hands down the best.

Last year I wanted a Hercules guitar stand. Musicians Friend had the double stand for less than buying a single stand locally. Since we often play as a duo I grabbed it, has been handy often.

Other than that, luck often comes my way and one of our pawnshops traditionally has all music gear marked down 50% a week or so before Xmas so I'll have to see what's there.

Like Dr Mike Metlay, I am currently clearing out excess inventory - selling, giving away, and tossing out.
Having everything gone will be an excellent present to myself!!! Cheers, Kuru

I'm looking at the Behringer Neutron for myself as a combo Holiday/Birthday present. Probably won't have it by Christmas, but I'll see . . .

My wish list would have to include the Hologram Infinite Jets, too, but I can only afford maybe one new toy this season, and the Behringer is my entry into the world of Modular Synths.

I just got a notice from IK selling refurbished Uno Drums for $125.

I just worked a trade with $120 on my end for a Focusrite ISA One preamp so there went the Uno.

I will share love and music with friends and family, the best stuff doesn't cost a dime!! :- D

Hi everyone. This is my very first post on this fine forum!!! My name is Glen, and I am a formally-trained pianist who resides in Newfoundland, Canada. Santa has given me an early Christmas present this year... an awesome new Casio Privia PX-870 digital piano... and I am totally in LOVE with it!

yes, welcome Glen. Took a quick look at your web site. You should check out the forum entitled "The Big Picture", as I see you are into photography. Great bunch of guys posting there, as here.

Yeah, I just ordered a Roli Rise 49.

When did Christmas giving become Christmas self-giving?

To give is better than to receive I know, but to give and receive all in one must be...

Thanks everyone, for the warm welcome; much appreciated! Yup, Santa just gave me yet another early present... a lovely pair of Presonus Eris E5 "XT" studio monitors for my new Casio Privia PX-870. Unfortunately due to space restraints, they must be wall-mounted, but I'm ok with that. My Rockville (RHSB8) mounting brackets have just arrived, so that'll be tomorrow's project.

Thanks, davedoerfler... next I'll go check out "The Big Picture" forum!!

Nah, Santa's had it pretty easy this Christmas! Last year he gave me a luxurious new SUV with all the bells and whistles, and the previous year two new motorcycles... so he's finding this year's gifts to be much easier to manage!

OK, I have just mounted my new Presonus Eris E5 XT studio monitors on the wall behind my Privia PX-870 digital piano. I think these look quite nice, and they sound incredible. I certainly won't have to add a subwoofer to this setup, as they indeed provide plenty of bass all on their own. I prefer to use the monitors AND the piano's four onboard speakers simultaneously... the combined sound definitely gives the instrument a much fuller, "more enveloped" sound experience than either just one or the other could ever provide on their own. Here's a photo of my current setup:

If I got a tree, probably an old cabbage or maybe a jar of peanut butter if I am lucky.

Yesterday I got a free reverb from Native Instruments. Everybody can get it here - https://www.native-instruments.com/en/specials/your-free-holiday-gifts/get-raum/

The manual can be downloaded on the same page, it's down a ways on the left side. You will want the manual, this does some great things including storing your own presets.

It is very versatile and sounds great, have fun and Merry Xmas!!!! :- D

It made me update the software manager first. It sat there when I first opened it and did nothing, then finally started spinning.
I think their server is trying to go faster than it can.
