That's too much for me. I should sell some
the guy with the most peadals when he dies wins...itsn' that what they say?
This guy??? not mine but OMFG!
Yep. And when he goes to heaven he gets to play David Gilmour's rig. If he goes to hell, he gets my Dunlop wah, DD-3 and some DOD pedals and has to live in Guitar Center listening to 14-year-old wankers blasting away for eternity. Can't touch any good gear either.
I am still collecting after one round of sellling a few years ago.

Foxrox ZIM (2) w Brown Muff

Not a large collection, but some of the right stuff anyway.....
I peaked at 149 pedals, I realized I had a problem one day I walked into my music room and stubbed my toe on a crate of 50 pedals and then bumped into another crate that had 32 pedals in it.. I said Mike- WTF man you need to stop buying pedals heheh.. So I kept 32 of my favorite Go tos and sold off the rest on ebay- paid off my truck loan doing it too -3 years early.... pedals add up quick even more so when they're zvex, klon, keeley etc..
I only have one, Landgraff DO. Am I wise or dumb ?
dats not real
I'm a bit in both camps.
There are some pedals I would love...so I do have some PE (pedal Envy).
But some of the numbers around here are SERIOUSLY SCARY.
I'm wondering how many cars-guitars- and in some cases houses, boats, small planes or even countries could be purchased for the money in some of this gear.
But I'm a guy, so I understand the size and comparison thing.
Are these MEGA collections early or late altrernatives to a mid life crisis??????:BEER
If these are the collections, I'd hate to have to wire the boards!!!!!!!!
Or compose the set list...You'd need a 6 month gig to get through stompin' on 'em all!!!!!
Bring a packed lunch and sleeping bag.
My vintage gear is an investment but also enable me to play some amazing gear along the line and talk to loads of great people. Beats putting the money in the bank!
Imagine the waiting list for a Zen or KOT 4 if Mrs. Marcos had played guitars!!!!!!!!!!!
Reminds me of Knopflers song "Imelda Baby"........
the defence rests.
This is PE out of control. (Pedal Envy).
If we're ever invaded by Aliens from Mars with Guitars....at least this guy
has some bargaining power!!!!!:AOK
who's is that!! he must have a small pp....JK very nice collection..
