Has anyone noticed that the musicians who are actually out there making a very nice living often use equipment that a lot of people on these forums would sneer at? It's kind of interesting... for example, I would like to see a breakdown of how many Landgraff pedals were actually purchased with the proceeds of musical efforts vs. other full-time day jobs. Another example... nobody on this board seems to have any major problems with a standard Ibanez Tubescreamer, but there are probably a dozen commonly-accepted alternatives that many consider to be better. At the same time, I see tons of Tubescreamers on famous pedalboards. Just some food for thought. Maybe it will help me to concentrate on playing better and end my problem with endlessly seeking the holy grail of tone.
