Seeing as I’ve got no gigs until February, I’m thinking I ought to have a B-plan of some kind. My career-guidance forum’s sage advice was to do some solo gigs. I’m inspired by the solo music that Theo Travis, Steve Lawson and Bill Frisell make using loops, and I find it inspiring to drift off into dreamland to try to imagine what music might be possible to make using looping devices. So I’m having a think about gear and what to get. Super – I’ll get to hear more of me, me, me. How can this be a bad thing? Don’t answer that…

Here are the options: [Thanks for all the advice @davemarks1 @Benmcdonnell @tomcawley @alexsunnygtr @richiemiester @facesake @solobasssteve @Gibboniser]
