Help me stop my GAS

Post by robthemac »

I hereby declare that I am no longer buying more pedals. I have enough. The ones I have are great. Please call me out if something new appears.

Exceptions:
1) The one Monarch pedal I have incoming
2) I have a hopeful autobid on an OCD
3) If any of the following come up on the used market: GFI Duophony, Strymon Cloudburst, a decent expression pedal, OBNE Dark Star
4) Incoming pedals are ok if they are part of trades with <$100 in additional outlay.

Thanks, team.

I actually think I'm kinda happy with my pedals, thats not to say a weird delay or reverb or overdrive or fuzz won't appear at any stage, but....

I just need to focus the GAS more. I'll still be buying, don't you worry your pretty little head about that.

Focused GAS…I’ve heard of that complaint. Take 2 aspirin and check back in the morning. I’m sure your insanity will only be temporary.

When then cupboards full of guitars and you can’t squeeze in another amp, at least there’s always room for another pedal. Got to satisfy the gas somehow.

You stomp on your friends, twiddle their knobs, and sell them on in a couple of months?

And I insert at least two plugs into each.
