    Seems we have a lot of people on this board from Toronto and the surrounding areas. I know a few great places we can rent for a few hours for pretty cheap and hold a pedalfest there. I'd love to meet some of the helpful folks I've gotten to know over the past year. Who's with me?

    a whole buncha gearwhores get together and bring their pedals (and guitar and amps if they so desire), and everyone gets to try out a number of different pedals with different amps and such.

    Glad to see a nice response, already! I just graduated university, so I'm currently unemployed, though for hopefully not too long. Who's game for the next couple-a weeks?

    I'll see if I can get Scott from axeandyoushallreceive to show up as well with a few of his faves.

    Hey Moe,

    Depending on the date, I would love to attend. Things are kinda sketchy here with the Renovation etc., but I would do my best.

    I could bring a few pedals along :D

    I'd be up for it. MoFaux, ZIM, DD-20, Maxon Comp, Pulsar, Bad Monkey, Lil Leo, Boss PS-2. I'll bring my Lester and my tweed champ clone.

    sounds great. I'd imagine a sunday afternoon (probably later in the afternoon) would be best for everyone, no?

    for the record, I'm not available Fridays or Saturdays.......

    Thanks for all the offers, but I've got a friend who has a rehearsal room which is a good size and I can probably get it for 35 bucks for 3 hours (near dufferin and dupont). If anyone has anything better, lemme know.

    Whoever can bring their amp (or amps), do so!

    it's about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from buffalo, depending on traffic and how fast you drive. I drive to buffalo all the time to drop off family members at the airport there (no international taxes on airfare to NY :D)
