    That's it!!! Plus you have all the classic ones, one-offs, custom builds, etc.:D

    Don't you tease me!!!:nono:nono:nono

    It starts with a few pedals and after quite a few years that's what happens...I try not to sell any pedals so I don't regret later on in life.

    I bought a Helix LT in May 2017 and haven't purchased a pedal since... 14 months strong :D

    Similar here. I got my Boss Digital Multi FX in a July 4th sale in 2016 and haven't looked at another pedal since. And haven't touched any of my other pedals in over a year now.

    I think I just hit over saturation and decided to stop buying crap... Also helps that I found some brands that work for me that aren't super expensive. I still have some pedals to sell that I've been far too lazy (depressed?) to list, but there's nothing out there that has me chomping at the bit to buy.

    I bought a JVM410 HJS and sold all my pedals, save a tuner pedal and reverb (the JS dumps the on board reverb for a noise gate).

    I think the longest I lasted was 3 months from the moment I said to myself that I was done buying pedals to ordering a few more just yesterday. In fact I have two pedalboards totaling 20 FX and yesterday I ordered another 5 more with accessories to make a third pedalboard. I am such a pedal junkie!

    I managed to go most of last year without buying a single pedal but then I fell right back on the wagon! My year off caught up to me with a vengeance, so far I picked up 2 BJFe (Rebel Red Distortion and a Candy Blue Fuzz), a DoD Carcosa, an OC Purple Humper, a Chase Tone 68 Red Velvet, an AnalogMan KoT and 2 BJFe fuzz DIY kits, the Sparkle Face and the Bone Bender.

    Oh, and a cream Fulltone MDV too...

    Those Diaz pedals are very underrated, the Ranger you got there is one of the only treble boosters I actually like!

    The Beano is the other one! You know what they say: Buy once, cry once.

    I was pretty good until I did a pedal purge to help fund a semi-hollow and just kept my favorites. Problem is that a new guitar obviously needs a different flavor overdrive and boost, right? Right?

    Bought a Lovepedal Kalamazoo Gold.
    -> Both the Throbak and Lovepedal are up for sale, just not my thing.
    Bought a Keeley Katana Mini, nice and compact but again not what I'm looking for
    -> back to the shop.

    Finally bought a J.Rockett Archer Clean and a Dunlop Mini Fuzz Face silicon (great timing now I have my strat back).
    Still want a Mini BoG after having the big one for a while.

    I’m done. I just need a buffer to go under the board, and possibly an ISO 5 to pair with the PP2+. I might build some different fuzz pedals eventually, but i’ll Just give them to the kid.
    Ive got a few amps to build, though. I also want a resonator and a pedal steel, so i wouldn’t say “I’m done buying gear”.
