Re: Decision Time: New Kit or Camera
10k is a lot of coin for a 15 yr old who can't quite afford a camera or a new kit (don't for get the cymbals).
Borrow your folks car for the gigs and the girls and ride yer bike for everything else (and you can stay in shape). Now you can buy the camera and the new kit.
I have teens in the house, it's what I would tell them.
