    Quite a list you got there! :) I've went totally crazy since I started reading TGP. I really should stop to protect my sanity and wallet..

    I can report pretty soon of some of the pedals you mentioned there. I'll get my EGDM today, Eternity next week and I'm gonna order the BBB maybe next week as well.. :)

    How long 'till you get you Czar? Man that thing looks cool..

    Since I recently got a BB-preamp and really liked it I feel I must get the RC and AC soon as well. The AC to get another flavour on the board and the RC to replace my old Microamp. Oh yeah, I ordered a Loop-master patch-unit last night as well. I'm right in the process of putting a new rig together so I'm sure I'll think of another thingy or two along the way! ;)

    Gents,

    I've totally lost the plot too. Since I joined TGP by pedalboard has gone through a total transformation in the time of two-three months. Just got a Mayo, Memory Lane and a D*A*M -fuzz in the last week or so and now I'm thinking of joining the Echoczar wait list. Also got a Cactus crunch and aTimmy on the way! Am I crazy? I don't think so... just a bit mad.

    Guess what Teddy Boy? I am thinking about the Echoczar as well... If I was sure that I'm happily employed in a decent job when the Czar is done I'd do it right away..

    I think we should just go for it and think about the consequences in 6 months. Commando style! Just sell some other gear when the time is ripe! Might have to feed some new cash into the system too but hey, the czar looks great!

    Another thanks to TGP for increasing my GAS;) Really TGP provides the information and I get sucked in very very quickly:angel

    However, I've been closely scrutinizing my purchases and if I find something better, or something doesn't fit it's going to a fellow TGPer or up on the bay.

    I only planned on a few new pedals to start my analog pedal board, you know, some of the basics, od/distortion, a delay, chorus, and probably a wah and an EQ. Look at what it has turned into so far.

    So far I've purchased: (It's still only January? I need to slow down)
    Barber DD
    Rocktron Tsunami Chorus
    Boss CE2 - Redundant to the Rocktron yes just testing out the possibilities.
    Keeley Katana Boost
    Keeley Modded DS-1 - Great pedal but returning to GC doesn't offer me anything beyond my amps overdrive.
    Tu-2 Tuner
    Ibanez Artcore AS83 Violin Burst
    Keeley TS9 Flexi 4x2 - in the mail.
    Lovepedal mini-Buffer - should be here soon, Right Shawn?;)
    Weber Mini-Mass Attenuator
    Line 6 DL4 - in the mail
    ISP Decimator (Pedal) Noise Reduction - in the mail
    Pedal Power II - in the mail.
    Seymour Duncan Vintage Rails - Strat Neck
    Seymour Duncan JB - Strat Bridge, rethinking this probably too hot.

    Future Acquisitions/Possibilities:

    Wah - Undecided between Budda and Fulltone Clyde/Clyde Deluxe.
    EQ - I'd like to try out an Antelope Morning Dew, but that will probably be a while. Possibly an MXR 10 Band.
    Compressor - Undecided between Barber Tone Press and Keeley 4 Knob.
    Mesa Studio Pre - Because I want to try it out and add a little tonal flexibility.
    Vibe of some sort.
    Mentatone Howie - For the Dumble-ish sound.
    Materials to build my pedal board.


    Anything else will be much further out into the future.:D

    Well, after a financial-crunch-directed sell-off of some very fine guitars and amps in '05, I'm looking to replenish in '06. After being out of work for over a year, I start my new job on Monday. Yay!

    Difficult to say exactly what will come first, but I really need to get something in the Tele camp, a solid-body with a longer 25-1/2" scale. Many excellent choices to be had these days, so no definitive predictions here.

    Amp-wise, waiting to see/hear more about Randall Aiken's Aurora, but it's also possible that another Two-Rock might be in my not-too-distant future. But I REALLY need to check out one of Andy's SLX amps, too...! Maybe even a Swart AST...

    Like I said, too many great choices to be had these days -- in both guitars and amps -- so we will see... ;)

    I've been on the waiting list for the Echoczar/Angelbaby for a couple of months now. That's about it at this time.

    TOADWORKS MEAT
    FULLTONE FAT BOOST
    BAD BOB BOOSTER
    EXOTIC RC BOOST

    COMPRESSORS:

    OTHERS:
    BBE SONIC STOMP
    IBANEZ UE-305 (2)
    WEBER MINI MASS
    THD HOTPLATE

    I think I am getting close to relieving most of my major GAS problem. For 2006 here are my goals:

    > Find a fuzz I can live with
    > Either get another Maxon ad-80 - or spring for a Diamond Memory Lane
    > For that Marshall tone, a JCM 800 (model #1987)
    > Tonebone Switchbone to switch between my soon to be aquired Marshall (tax time!) and my 1965 BF Super Reverb
    > Mofaux vibe
    > MI Audio Tube Zone (for heavy stuff)
    > Find a comp I can live with (maybe a Diamond Comp, or a mini Bi-comp)
    > And finally, for fun, get a couple of BYOC kits!!

    It is amazing what you can accomplish with a relatively small investment by buying and selling used gear. The key is to educate yourself...

    Thanks TGP'ers!!!!
