OK, you want to start out with the main instrument in most rock bands: a guitar.The company that made the guitar you want is partially famous for the fact that Mike Nesmith played one in The Monkees and the company was a pioneer in electric guitars. What do you want?
A Gretsch electric-acoustic
A Fender six-string
A National Steel
A Danelectro vintage
Next comes 1/3 of the rhythm section: a bass guitar. Brian Wilson or Carol Kaye played this kind of bass on most Beach Boys records. It has a very distinctive sound. What bass is this?
Suzuki string bass
Next is the synthesizer. You want those wild and crazy sounds on the songs you will record, but you have no idea how to program a synthesizer! You'd prefer something like the one Andy Paley played on Brian Wilson's "Pet Sounds Live in London" tour. What do you want?
Drums are next. You prefer the sound of real drums to drum programming. You want the drums that Triumph used "exclusively" on some of their albums. What kind do you need?
Now what about some hand percussion? You think Bermuda Schwartz is the greatest hand percussionist in the WORLD, and you want the percussion he uses. What kind of percussion do you want?
The one thing about your synthesizer is that it doesn't have good organ sounds. You need a real organ for that kind of thing. The organ you want is made in Italy and was used by Elton John on "Crocodile Rock." What do you need?
Although you don't like programmed drums that much, you want a set of drum pads because they can do really weird things. You want the kind keyboardist Kipper used when he programs drums for Sting's live shows. What is it you're going for?
The cymbals that came with your drum set are truly no good, so you buy new cymbals. The kind you want is made in New Brunswick, Canada, and is used by many major drummers today. What cymbals do you desire?
It's time to record your music, and you want something flexible enough to accomodate all your instruments. Ideally you want something with more than 10 tracks. Which of the following would not suit your tastes?
Finally, the microphones. You admire the tonal quality of the mic that Brian Wilson used for his vocal on his "Pet Sounds" album, and you want one of them. What do you need?
