Remember that it’s not as much what you have as what you can do with it. Does that mean you can buy a $50 Casio keyboard and blow a Yamaha S-90 ($2000 keyboard) out of the water? No, it doesn’t, but know this fact. If your song isn’t catchy on the $50 Casio, it probably won’t be catchy on the S-90. Money does not substitute for talent. By all means, if you can afford the best gear, you may as well go for it. The one thing you should avoid is letting that expensive gear collect dust while you are upstairs reading your new music catalog thinking ‘if I only got this newer model I could be making awesome music…’ Stop waiting for your next purchase before you write music. Use what gear you have.
