I love my amps, guitars and a few choice pedals. They sound great and they give me the tones I want. However, every couple of months I start GASing for pedals based on some crazy hype I read around the net. I end up buying a bunch and adding them all to my board. Then I waste time screwing around with them instead of just playing. Eventually, I realize that I've gone through this before and I rip all of the useless pedals off of my board. I'm not a professional musician. I'm a professional computer engineer who loves to play guitar and record music. I don't need 100 pedals (even though my stock pile is now up to ~40). Does anyone else go through this?...Where you realize that all of the gear choices sometimes gets in the way of you just playing and having fun? Alright, rant off.
