The Gear That Got Away

We’ve all been there. Whether it was a guitar you wanted that someone bought right when you finally saved up enough money, an analog audio compressor you sold to make your rent a few years ago, or a synthesizer that you talked yourself out of that’s now rare and worth gobs more money. Yeah… most of the time we never get over it.

We posed this question to some of our artist friends and put together a short video of their piece of gear that got away. Special thanks to Ryan “Fluff” Bruce, Robert Baker, Noir Et Blanc Vie, Dave Otero, Glenn Fricker, BoBeats, Trey Xavier, Jay Leonard J, David Wallimann, The Guitar Geek, BBoyTech, Lightbath, Become the Knight, Circle of Tone, Backroom Studios, Cooper Carter, Max Solo, and CatPick Studios for sharing their stories. Make sure to check back as we share new stories!
