    From time to time I see people make up contests. These days we’ve had people donate prizes. These are triple digit values. And all revolve around syns store.

    Time to think out of the box. Were all musicians and need the proper equipment. Different ideas to consider that could be just as amazing as a syn mug or shower curtain but push you further as a player .

    Maybe you need a HD camera. Maybe you need an interface. New strings? Anything really. Even a new pedal. These are all rather cheap options that I think could really help certain people who may not have the cash.. OR maybe theyve never been properly Introduced to your brand.

    I dunno if these prizes and whatnot will continue. I just was sitting on the bus thinking.. I could use a new camera. And those are rather cheap these days. The one I have is almost 4 years old now. Maybe upgrade to a 4k?

    Any comments suggestions.. etc.go for it.

    This is exactly why I issued the $50 sweetwater gift card as a prize to Rowan. I think it’s a must to include something on behalf of Syn though because he is putting out hundreds of thousands of dollars into this for us where we are able to host such contests. It’s only fair we make a part of the prize be a gift card to the store 🙂

    I agree with you. I think it’s great to add other prizes as well that will help us out. But I choose the Syn store gift card because potential winners are way out of country and can’t afford the shipping but they want a sweater or something from the store. That way, if someone wins the $100 gift card but has a $40 shipping fee and they live in the Philippines,the card was purchased with American dollars instead of running them into debt because of currency ratios. Most countries have some sort of local music store where they can upgrade if need be. But only one country has the Synyster Gates Store 😎😎

    The prizes are cool and all, but we shouldn’t expect anyone to put forth money nor anyone should feel obliged to. If someone wants to donate great, but we also run into another point I want to bring up.
    The school is here to help the students improve their guitar skills and the work they put towards that is up to them. No one should give people a reward for doing something that is ultimately going to benefit them in the first place.

    I have some ideas for future prizes and contests, but I think my main goal is to do small things with small prizes that I can keep doing on a regular basis to keep this place up on fire xD
    I’m not swimming in money thought, but I’m happy to share whenever I can.

    I think Syn/A7X prizes are almost 100% the way to go though, as this what all this platform stands for.

    Maybe from time to time we can do a survey on things people would want to see as prizes

    hope i’d get to do it eventually!

    I agree with Ailee. These contests were issued because I noticed everything on the school slowing down. They were not supposed to be a permanent thing. But I don’t want people to be relying on them for motivation sorry

    I totally get the syn reference. I just figure weve all bought our fair share already.. if you haven’t yet.. you should. It may be free but he deserves something.

    Like I’d seriously enjoy the 100 gift card. Theres lots I havent gotten I want. But I also can easily get anything I want for my music.. some may not know really what to look for.. or what they really want.

    The fact anyone would donate anything is pretty awesome to say the least. It’s something I cant say I could do myself (mostly due to my financial situation).
