Moog Matriarch synth

$2,199 • Guitar Center

I’ve always wanted a synth of my own, especially one with patching cables. The Matriarch has always been my dream. It seems like it would be such an inspiring instrument to have around. Its layout with all the different colors makes me want to experiment and write so many synth songs. —Olive

Homer Hoop with Gems

$615 • Homer

This is a really beautiful piece of jewelry made by an artist I admire and would love to work with, Frank Ocean. —Avsha

Phaeton PHT-2031 Custom Series C Trumpet

$1,989 • Woodwind and Brasswind

I grew up playing classical piano and learning composition, but I wasn’t able to learn how to play the other orchestral instruments that I wanted to compose for. Trumpeters like Chet Baker, Miles Davis and Wayne Shorter have inspired me so much in composition and mood, and I’ve always wanted to learn and play what I compose. —Avsha

Leica Minilux zoom point

$650 • Ken Rockwell

I’ve been into photography for a long time, and I’ve always used a really cheap, half-broken $80 point-and-shoot camera. I’ve recently been into capturing candid moments while on tour or out adventuring. I’ve wanted a Leica so bad, but they’re such an investment. —Olive

Eastman VC401 Ivan Dunov Intermediate Cello

$3,720 • Sweetwater

I’ve always wanted to play what I compose, and the cello is my favorite stringed instrument. It has the beauty and warmth of a violin, but a much deeper and darker sound. —Avsha
