buying other pedals to free up M9 slots? i mean yes, always buy more pedals, but that seems a little backwards
Well, it's not so much to free up M9 slots... it's more to purchase effects that are superior to what the M9 can do or better suited to my needs. Don't get me wrong, the M9 is awesome, but its models aren't always best suited for the sound I want, nor is it at all convenient to have to move between scenes on the fly when I want a certain sound.
Fuzz is the best example of this. I tried a Maestro Fuzz years ago and hated it. I wrote off fuzz for years after that, but when flipping through the M9 models, I was really impressed with the Fuzz Face model. After playing with it for a while and accessing it more and more, I had the opportunity to make a trade for an analog fuzz- discovered some flexibility that the M9 couldn't quite match (especially interaction with pickup type, volume knob, picking dynamics, etc). That ultimately led to me going from three dirt tones to six, including the two analog fuzzes.
If I can work it out, trem is probably the next to be added (if I can find the space). I played with a Mad Scientist trem last year, and although the M9 gets close enough for now, it's not quite there. :-)
