    I have amp GAS. I have a lot of great gear, but I just can't get rid of the GAS. I just love firing up and dialing in a new amp once in a while. I have a lot of keepers, but I just keep getting GAS for something new.

    Here's my current GAS list, in no particular order. Do you think one of each will cure my GAS for good, or is this a perpetual, lifelong problem? :roll

    • Komet Concorde Stealth
    • Louis Electric KR-12
    • Soultone Wilbur
    • Soultone SuperPlexi
    • Marshall 1959HW
    • Divided by 13 EDT 13/29
    • Star Sirius Reverb
    • Top Hat Vanderbilt 33
    • Fuchs Tripledrive Supreme
    • Voodoo V-Reck
    I want all of them. I think I'm in deep.............. :D

    Gas grows in direct proportion to how much time you spend on the Gear Page and exponentially with how much gear you buy.

    Hey! How's it goin'? Still have the Uni?

    The Komet Concorde Stealth...I'll take one!

    Oh so true:crazy
    I find I have less gas when I actually go play my gear. Unfortunately I spend more time here wishing I had this or that.:jo

    Take a Gas-X and go play your gear. Everytime I get a hot flash to buy something new because its the latest and greatest it seems I end up with buyers remorse. When I buy something I research for a while because I actually need it things seem to end better. I'm just sayin'.........

    Someone posted a great GAS antidote on here not too long ago - go and read the reviews of all the gear you currently have. All that raving will get you excited about what you already own all over again and diminish the craving for something new.

    I actually just did that - reading about the tubes in my Blitz 50 - realize I just need a small stadium to play it in....

    This is terrific advice. Most guys with serious GAS (yes, it's a guy thing) likely have at least 3-4 pieces that's stand up to anything out there just fine!

    I have found the best cure for Amp GAS (and any other kind of GAS) is a wife and two kids. I can't turn on an amp without one of them yelling for me to turn it down.

    I get rid of gas by sitting behind an acoustic or a piano and actually try writing some new material.

    This place is venomous for poor guys like me.
