So here I am, I just finished my modular pedal board system that will consist of 3 pedalboards (2 are finished.) Why 3? Because I play guitar AND bass and have regular jams/gigs on each. 1 pedal board is stuff that really only works for bass, 1 board that is strictly guitar stuff, and one board that has stuff that works on both with a couple of setting tweaks. So the idea is whichever I'm playing that night I take the common board, and then the bass or guitar board depending on what I'm playing. Right now the bass and common board are finished. Including volume/expression pedals, EACH one has seven pedals. I look down, and think to myself "This is RIDICULOUS! WHEN am I gonna use all this ****???" :NUTS Part of me likes having all the sounds for impomptu tones for when the mood strikes, but another part of me is nearly embarassed(!) for having this much gear on the floor. Now maybe it's because i'm looking at what would be the BASS setup, and I'll admit it's more than I've ever seen most guys use. I had all this stuff on one board at one time when I was strictly on bass and was infamous in a "Holy cow" sorta way locally for it. However I DID have some of the coolest sounds. Overdrive to bootsy to rocket ship, I had it! It also doesn't help that 3 of the pedals are HUGE. However while it's a little less overwhelming, part of me still feels this way with the proposed guitar setup too. So what's going on? Am I just growing up? Maturing as a player? Subconsiously(spell?) tired of schlepping all this gear? Feel I'm getting too old to have a setup like this and that it looks funny? I don't know.... Anyone else have the same experience?
