    How to spend my giftcards & cash

    Well we don't go crazy with christmas gifts--so no big gear gifts or anything for me, but I do have some gift cards & cash that will be used towards some gear purchases.
    I wasn't sure where to post this, so I chose this as I think I'm leaning towards a mic or two--depending on the prices I find, or a used electronic keyboard--but no real keyboard category.

    I'm considering the following:
    -a mic or two
    -mic cables
    -mic stand
    -pedalboard or materials to build one
    -used keyboard
    -a Strymon favorite switch to use on a Strymon pedal
    -strings
    or anything interesting on sale

    The mic(s) would be for home recording on a Tascam digital recorder (lower end one, recording for fun, learning and maybe a demo)
    I am considering an SM57 and a couple of Sennheisers. (one or two of them), but I might go with another brand.
    If I find a great price on a pedal board I may buy one, but I have an idea for building one based on combining elements of existing ones.
    The keyboard doesn't have to be high end, but better than a toy or cheap-o one--it needs a decent piano sound and a few decent organ sounds--so a used one will get me more bang for the buck.

    Any suggestions?

    Only gift card I got was for Fin Feather and Fur so I will get some Glock or SKS accessories.
    I don't play guitar because I'm good at it, I play because it's fun!!

    True, I did not...
    But it's a local store.
    And a Canadian one.

    I'm guessing your giftcards could be L&M. I'm sure you'll find something you like if you go window-shopping there.
