Looking at a rejig of my pedalboard. Few things I want to add or replace:
- Nicer delay to replace DD-3. I like the look of the 80tape In Limbo but I'm not sure if they're still making them
- Fuzz to replace big muff, something a bit weirder ideally
- Isolated power supply
- Something else? Chorus/trem or something. Will know it when I see it...
Check out the source audio nemesis delay, so good! Fuzz Factory would be a good choice IMO, you can get nice to fucking nasty tones out of one, there are some nice trem pedals out there, my favourite has to be the Tremotron!

Tele partscasters. Each day I read Reverb, the Gear Page and Ebay. Key word Warmoth. I want a single bound, black tele body, fully loaded. The neck I can give or take. Wanting to get a Warmoth tele neck with Wolfgang profile. So much want. Yet last month it was Asher T-Deluxes. And next month, it'll be something else. I question whether I am in control any longer of my pastime.

Yep I'm really happy with it. Between that and the hotcake there's a good variety of combinations of dirt. No plans to get rid of it any time soon :D

Yep fuzz factory has been in my eye for awhile. Have given up on finding one locally so may just need to suck it up and order one new.

That trem looks amazing but is probably surplus to requirements and the sheer amount of LEDs gives me anxiety :D

Fuzz Factory is a really easy build if you can solder :)

I just really want to support the folks at zvex.

Definitely has nothing to do with me being terrible at soldering...

No GAS right now as I need to start saving for back surgery

Have had major pain for a while, found out I had a ruptured disc so got a nerve blocker & cortisone injection but it didn't work. Went back this week to see my Orthopedic surgeon and now I'm in line for a L5/S1 Discectomy. Oh the joy
Our heroes who art in heaven, Hendrix, Bloomfield, King et al be thy names. Thy inspiration come. Thy will be played loudly, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our guitars & amps and forgive us our purchases, as we forgive those who have gone digital.
