    1. As my girlfriend says...accessorize!! Lots of different tones
    2. Nice cheap(er) GAS-curbing alternatives to amps and guitars...saves the pocketbook! It also teaches me to maximize what amps I have.
    3. So many flavors, it's like an ice cream shop...gotta find your favorites and try more next time!
    4. When you buy/sell, shipping is cheap! So nice not to have to search for huge boxes and shell out $80-$100 to ship something (coming from the guy that used to only hang in the amp emporium)
    5. Seems like there's a pretty high rate of pedal turnover on the emporiums...so it's easy to buy the pedals you want to try, and sell them if you don't dig it.

    IMHO of course. I'm kind of digging my new addiction...:crazy

    Ha! As you said, the only thing keeping us pedal snobs from entering the amp world is a little annoyance called REAL LIFE

    7. Because currently (99.9% of the time) I play a stock Stratocaster with vintage output single coils! :D

    marla in fight club said: "it's cheaper than a movie and there's free coffee..."

    in a similar vein, the reason i like pedals is that: "they're cheaper than an amp, and i get cool noises."

    8. UPS and USPS usually don't succeed when they try to destroy pedals.
