    HOLY TOLEDO. Just thought I'd register my amazement before 10 people quote all of those pictures and make this page unreadable.

    Hey, Can I be in the club?

    My small 1++ collection

    G&L ASAT Special >>>

    to front of amp
    >BBE "Benwah"
    >Empress "ParaEq w/Boost"
    >Smart People Factory "Greenline" od
    >Hermida "Zendrive2" od
    >Hardwire "8 second Delay"

    in fx loop
    >Lexicon MPX100 (for hall verb)
    >Red Witch Pentavocal Tremolo
    >BBE Sonic Stomp

    Fender Blues Deluxe RI stock

    then,,,since I have tone magic at my fingertips,,,,,


    This ain't the biggest pedal collection, just up ther with the best.

    And just like too many notes in a chord can become "unfocused"
    same is true with too many pedals turned on at the same time.


    Still looking for the perfect fuzz pedal to add to my collection.

    If you ask me, we are looking at a few of these pedal collections being dealers pedals, they just bring them home for the night

    that, or some people have ocd.

    I'm not jealous of these big collections, it makes me feel good that I figured great tone out with seven or eight great pedals.
    And I do have my sound. Isn't that the real goal? It's my goal.

    Yes, Mr Sickle has a great collection as well!

    I should add that I do not own this collection anymore but it is mostly complete with a new owner here in Sweden.

    This is a great thread! It makes me feel on the normal side of the fence. Now I have a great way showing my wife, that I'm absolutly normal and "we" can buy another pedal or two, with out feeling like freaks. Thanks!

    I'm gob-smacked-amazed-envious-in a good way-
    and have a better understanding of myself and fellow members.

    I also wish I had the eye and ears that alot of you guys had-
    I suppose you could call it vision or foresight......

    Oz (like most countries)
    has a great t.v. program called "The Collector's."
    The panel are all avid collectors in their own right.

    It can be compulsive viewing to just to enjoy the passion,
    pleasure and occasional pain/ loss involved for many of those willing to share their "collection".

    Bonnie Raitt once said about a stratocaster words to the effect of:
    Ït was a tree, a living thing,
    it needs to be honoured and played not just hang on a wall.

    In that light I hope you all can find the needed time to get through all those pedals,
    be they on a couch or the stairs or your board.

    I've really enjoyed this thread and the diverse fabric of posters here.
    Cheers one and all.:beer

    p.s. I also wish when viewing here (not often)
    I was young/ single and didn't have 3 children and a mortgage.........
    then usually one of the kids yells
    "Hey dad can you get off the Gear Page so I can use the computer!!!!!!!!":boxer
    and life grounds my desire again. sighhhhh....

    there's a few photos here that make Imelda Marcos' shoe collection seem small!!!!!!

    Aside from API, Kayzer gets my vote. That guy's nuts! :mob

    I used to have 150-160. Now im keeping only what i can really use. i still can't believe it really. but i have a feeling that it's gonna go up again from my current 40.
