    Default How many guitar pedals do you own?

    I've been documenting my belongings for insurance reasons... Pedals are clocking in at 36 (counting the 'smokey' amp as a pedal too though)

    So 36 is the score to beat

    If you count smokeyamp...

    2x SmokeyAmp
    2x Midi Mouse
    1x 2 Bypass Switching Pedal
    1x Dunlop Zakk Wylde wah (not on my board, just an extra I couldn't pass up)
    1x Bad Horsie Wah

    So my total is 7... I actually have more guitars than pedals!

    The smokey is way fun to plug into a larger cab!

    I use to have dozens around at most times, but I'm going minimalist. I have about 6 pedals now including my Teese Wah. Some before pedalboards and the 'now' pedalboard

    Nice, Jaydee!

    I've been meaning to check out those sansamps.. I saw someone use the Acoustic version on a bass guitar one time and it just sounded like there was an extra octave on it. The plugin is really nice for mixing too.

    I use the original late 80's Sansamp all the time when I'm recording in my little home studio. Haven't found anything that works better at direct to board recording.

    Have you ever checked out the newer series? Those with the tolex/grill cloth look?

    A friend was at mine today with his new Rhodes, checked it out through my Two-Rock versus amp modelers and plugins... Such a world of difference!

    I'd like to check out their 'Blonde' character series pedal, you know I'm a vintage Fender guy. Did you say Rhodes, as in Electric Piano Rhodes. I had an original 1973 one, which I used with my band Crossfyre in the late 70's - early 80's wish I still had it. Here's a couple of photos of the band circa 1980...I'm guessing you were but a twinkle in your Dad's eye at that point.

    I guess I'll tell one of my 'Zack's of Sausalito'-well known tourist bar of the day- story where the 2nd pic was taken...we were the house band there for a while. In comes Al Jarreau in town for a gig to check us out and he's got this gorgeous leggy blonde with him. We see Al and go into "Were In This love Together" one of Al's hit tunes of the day and were all grooving along, Al is smiling. All of a sudden, the house security guy goes up to Al's table and has a conversation with him. Al gets up and leaves and we're wondering "What the F...?" So after the tune is over I ask Bruno "Do you know who that guy was you kicked out?" Bruno says "No idea, but that girl was only 18"

    Since the drinking age here was 16 when I was younger (and 18 now) it took me a second to get that Cool story!

    Yeah, the drinking age in California, and much of the nation is 21. Too look on the bright side, you have the right at 18 to enlist in the Army and be killed in Afghanistan*

    *unless we get into a war with Russia or North Korea first
