Honestly Carol, it is tough to continue musical activities as a mother of toddlers and even school going kids. I have been an active member of my college musical band, and yes, I have also been associated with a music band after my marriage.
But after kids, I didn't make any music. After too many years, in this lockdown, I got some time to play music, and I tried to create some music with friends. I cleaned all of my musical equipment and also willing to purchase a bass compressor pedal from here https://www.sound-beat.com/bass-pedals-effects/compressor/ to clean my bass guitar sound. Probably, the purchase of a new guitar amp from this list https://www.happynewguitarday.com/best-guitar-amp/ could also be a great idea to get signals from the pickup appropriately.
Indeed, I always love to upgrade my musical instruments and even before marriage, I was crazy about buying new music instruments especially the guitar-related ones. On the other hand, if you ask about kids' interest in music, then yes, they love to hear good music. My elder son was taking piano classes, but in this quarantine, it was tough for him to continue it via online classes. I am thinking to teach him to play the guitar. I think it would be a good idea.
