You're not the first to think it! I myself can't unsee it after my friend kindly drew the rest of the body on for me...

Bad BillB!

Oh, you were thinking of a proper museum. I thought you just meant a collection of gear which is often admired and occasionally played with. I already have one of those and your processors might have fitted right in...

True sods law style, recorded three tracks yesterday with a pedal I was on the verge of selling, fantastic.

That would be an ecumenical matter.

Ah, sorry, I see you have entirely appropriate intentions.

Oh, I can talk myself into any old nonsense. Luckily I have several representatives in the real world who can tell me to wise up from time to time.

Keep up the good work.

These days I only every use what I would call "traditional" effects pedals, I’ve got a few "trendy" ones, that claim to do all sorts of magical mojo, and have great paint jobs, but I’m still left with a blank expression on my face.
I find these types of pedals, the sounds are easily got with other things, and my mixer, these days my pedals are reverb, delay, a looper, distortion, plus my trusty old Boss effects box.
I'm selling a few pedals, no point in having them just sitting there, also I’m finding oedals are taking up so much desk space, it’s unmanageable.

What happened to 'You can't have too many'? And in less than the space of a month?!

And what did you buy between then and now that's tipped the balance?

The more I work with what I have, the less I need, it’s like a distillation, down to what I "really need" it takes time.
The only two synths I ever use these days, my Moog Grandmother, and an Alesis Micron, pedals are a broken T-Rex Replay Box, a Big Sky, and a Zoom CD-R 70.
Everything else is falling by the wayside, as I continue to find the minimum I can get away with.
