I think he did a fairly massive purge a couple of years ago, when he got into Eurorack.

probably around 20, but i scaled down the pedalboard to one dirt, one delay and one modulation.
I've had one pedal extra besides that that i rotate in from my collection, it's a great way to rediscover my own gear instead of chasing new and shiny.

Playing is a lot more about playing now, but I seem to always want to add a reverb and a looper and and and and and - then im back at a pedalboard so big that it's just not fun to use again.

Granted I don't think I could've scaled down like I did unless I got my tweaking done on the eurocrack instead.

Bro, I know you’re a brainiac. Just do it. If you do a run of 5, you got 1 buyer here. :hug:
I don’t even know what kind of pedal we’re talking about but if November does it, I’m in.

Thank you! That makes me feel very appreciated around here :hug:
I do actually have a couple ideas that I've been tossing around. Mainly delays and weird samplers, but I do have an idea for an FM synth that I'm kind of excited about pursuing lately.


Delays, weird samplers and FM synths ALL sound like great product offerings to me!

49 counting everything thats not a board or a power supply (including volumes, expressions, switchers, flip flops, mini mixers, MIDI connectors, preset switches) and one that hopefully arrives tomorrow bringing it to 50.

My main board is 20 (21 including the volume pedal not on the board)
I have a small board of looping devices that's 7 and a preamp board w 7 pres and a raised board for twisting knobs thats 4 deep...add in a few loosies and close to 10 on the side that I am exploring, learning, or just swap in every now and again for weirdness.

Some of my friends think I have a problem but everyone else in my life is thankful that I have given up my craft beer "hobby" (cough cough...rampant alcoholism has never had such a pretty public face as the craft beer scene) in favor of collecting a bunch of stomp boxes.

Heres what the setup kinda looks like today (dont blink or it changes):

I’m always puzzled by people who list “craft beer” as an interest on their resumes. Why do you want to flag yourself as a possible alcoholic? Do you think this is a favorable interview topic?

I will say that it is a great conversation starter. The tides are turning where people are starting to recognize that it is a thin veil for "why yes, I do drink every single day or just about"...much like admitting you are a Phish phan and used to follow them around the country comes w certain judgements, the beer thing is no longer cute.

I'm in a similar place where it was easy to drink often to "appreciate" the beer, and I legitimately did, but in its absence I would still just as gladly crush a bottle of some bottom shelf swill. Sober for 18 months now!

My pedal count is up to 20 now I think. I'm selling as many as I'm buying in most cases, so even tho I've added or am awaiting four new pedals, the quantity stays relatively the same. Added the Cooper FX Outward V2, just received a Meet Maude, am waiting on Adventure Audio Lunge and Jptr FX Kaleidoscope. Have sold lots recently, but the only one waiting to sell at the moment is the Shallow Water.

I'm with you but I had a childhood friend who recently got a new job and at the interview, brought up his "craft" whiskey hobby. I mean, at least with craft beer you make the stuff. Craft whiskey is the equivalent to watching sports. Nothing is done but consumption.

He said it went like this (this is not a bit for the record). "What do you like to do when you get home?" "I drink whiskey."
He's one of those people that does things with money, that I don't understand, so it all adds up.

I too enjoy a quality bourbon from time to time but I would never bring that up in a job interview. Actually I would never bring up any of the weird shit I’m into at a job interview, or even at work....

Personally I prefer cheap domestic for distortion AND beer. Gimmie a DOD and a can of old mill.... but for whisky I only drink top shelf, same with buying Ring Modulators.... gimmie a Blantons and a friggin’ Moogerfooger please my good sir

When the craft beer explosion happened and every Rick, George and Charlie are explaining why the hops are so fragrant and explaining “you just haven’t had the right one” I’m like oh this is how women feel every single minute of every single day....

I played some JOHN WIESE and SISSY SPACEK for a bunch of colleagues once. They were surprisingly pretty into it!
EDIT: To be clear, I played more 'grindcore' + 'noisecore' oriented SISSY SPACEK. Think more "Lead Their Exit" and less "RIP".
My colleagues "generally" speaking (I don't really do this anymore and haven't in years for the record :lol: ) were more receptive to drone-y material like Kevin Drumm, Aube, and Robert Piotrowicz and less receptive to MACRONYMPHA, SKIN CRIME (I know for a fact I showed them some SKIN CRIME cause HOSPTIAL did the retrospective recently), and HIJOKAIDAN.
