A sub-interest of my guitar playing is collecting gear and in particular effects pedals. I've got a fair collection going on now, and while I sometimes wonder if the money could be better spent elsewhere, these little gizmos (read : holes in my pocket) inspire me and help me convey my ideas, so I think they're a worthwhile investment.
My gear is going through a rare pause in its evolution while I'm in Sweden and spending money on other things, so for the time being, this is a fairly accurate idea of what I have, even if its actual configuration changes from week to week when I play it.
For interest's sake, here is a list of my gear, some pics to show some of it off and interesting notes for any gearheads who care! :)
These 1st 3 pedals are "vintage" pedals and reserved for recording. I decided never use them live after the DM-2 broke in my flightcase in 2002.
First distortion pedal I bought. Not sure it works anymore. I plan to gut it and refit it with something appropriately cool when I have the time and money.
The first effects pedal I bought. I learnt how to make the most of simple effects with this pedal.
