agreed...The more I save for synths, the more I just want to save...though, had an interesting discussion about this fact on Moog forum, and one of the guys said he has two accounds, essentially one is saving for retirement, etc...the other is for music/interests...percentages of each check goes into each...The only thing I am toying with is actually three accounts, one for day to day living/family expenses that I share with my wife, one that saves for our future, and one that is just instrument money....soundxplorer wrote:clubbedtodeath wrote:There are three, not two things, that dictate market conditions:
Supply, demand, and credit.
I've realized something about myself lately. I used to have credit card debt (because of gear purchases), but I paid it all off a couple of years ago. Now I have a substantial amount of money saved specifically for purchasing gear, but I am finding it much harder to commit to a purchase with my cold hard cash. With a credit card, it was easy to say "this isn't really my money".
The psychology of credit is dangerous.
because when you see it is your bank account that is taking the hit of a $1500-$2000 synth, it can be a pretty hard pill to swallow...at least it is for me..
