Play to your strengths, not your weaknesses. If this is true, why are you applying to video stores and fast food places? Look for paid recording or live gigs. Get whoever's hiring you to front you just some money to rent cymbals and pedals if you really need them to perform and your gear isn't up to par.
Time to start putting (other people's) money where your mouth is.
