    I cut myself off for 2020 and have failed miserably.

    AM Bart
    Metrode Effects Dual Drive
    Nordland ODR-C
    Jext Telez Range Van Lord

    Now I have sold almost 10 pedals and have $2k sitting there. Plan was to buy a Gibson 335 or Matchless DC30

    Both of which require more pedal selling.

    I am on two waiting lists Kingsley and AM KoT

    And am waiting to see if FoxRox makes any more TZF2, and waiting for Boonar Tube release.

    Nothing will cure boredom faster than an Electro Harmonix Mel9. Unfortunately EHX stuff hardly ever goes on sale.

    Not to sound like a jerk here, but instead of buying “stuff” I have been buying Truefire 5 dollar download specials and have actually learned a few new things during this isolation period. Just a suggestion if you find yourself looking for something to do.

    Bought a couple fuzz pedals just before Coronavirus became a thing. I wouldn’t spend the money now as my income has dried up. Lots of time to play with the new fuzz though.

    This has been my internal argument as well. It managed to delay my purchase long enough that it isn't logistically practical anymore.

    I'm a better tuner short of being finished with my board (for this round anyway).

    I can probably withstand the GAS for a while.

    I think.

    I had one of those that I loved for one sound which was pretty much diming everything and setting volume at unity

    Just bought a FD2 Mosfet and a DOD Rubberneck. They should pair nicely.

    I've had good luck with being able to get some great sounds out of this pedal. Either with the gain just past halfway or with it almost off and the volume cranked.

    I have an Expressionator coming Sunday. That should help alleviate some boredom. I'll need to build the extra cables, but I have all that stuff in my parts stash.

    20% off at Zvex. A lo-fi junky or fuzz factory will keep anyone busy for a while.
