    What are some cheap things (gear or not) that you absolutely love? It doesn't matter if anyone else loves it or not, just that you do.

    Note: this is NOT a "my $14 Azerbajian Telecaster copy made of sawdust and glue is superior in quality compared to a Fender Custom Shop Tele" type of thread.

    It can however include "my $14 Azerbajian Telecaster copy made of sawdust and glue is really cool and I dig it, and here's a really neat story behind it" kind of thread.


    What have you got that's way greater than what it cost?

    My cheap Android phone. I cannot justify spending $1600 or more for an iPhone and I don't want to be tied to Apple.
    My $300 Oppo does everything I could possibly want in a phone.

    FA727F61-957C-4B99-96A4-0714DA0E6ED3.jpeg My least expensive guitar (2010 Squier CV) and sometimes I want to sell all my other electrics and just be satisfied with one electric and play the hell out of it but that would be too logical...

    * paid $50 for amp, and treated it to a Jensen Mod-50W 10" ( also $50, I just wanted more 'volume handling') love it, used it today on AM gig.

    It’s “loved”. Her name was Sharron. It was a great three months

    I’ve got a cheap set of wire cutters that almost rival my Klein’s

    Had these resin/wood picks custom made by a local guy for $3 each. Love them so much I’ve ordered 6 more solid resin ones in green and red/blue.

    About gear, I love a lot of cheap pedals, tha in my opinion sound incredible:

    Digitech Bad Monkey: I use it totally clean, gain at 0, flat eq and volume at 3 o clock as first peal in many of my pedalboards
    danelectro tua melt tremolo: my fav tremolo of all time
    arion flanger: the best way to emulate a rotary/hammond for me better than the famous chorus that Michael Landau uses
