It kinda sucks reading about effects when you're broke

I, at one time only had a chourus, distortion and some delay stomp boxes, that's all I had. Some times I'd tour witha band that would lend me racks of gear and man, I'd experiment at sound checks and come up with out of this world effects.I had to depend on playing my face off to compensate for having cheap effects, I'd shred like Yngwie or play with more fire to compensate. Then I got a good job and got me some great effects, now I got an arsenal of great sounds to choose from. Hang in there, maybe you'll get some great gear in time......and I really Hope you do !!!!:thu::D:wave:

I think of it like porn. Nice to look at other {censored} when I got nothing else coming in. I guess at this point in my life I have enough gear where I don't need something new coming in every week. I don't even have any gas for a new pedal, well atleast not one that actually exists. {censored}, I'm looking for an amp, and don't have any overwhelming gas for one. I just got my pedalboard, and I think they put the {censored} in upside down. I'll need to investigate this further.

Same here. There's a couple of pedals out there I'd like but I don't have the urge to commit. Like you, I also want an amp but again, no overwhelming urge to get into debt getting one. With the exception of the Kaden Boost, tuner and ISPs, I'm not using what pedals I have now.

No! He moved to Las Vegas and no longer operates DS Sound as far as I know.

 

 

yeah, i bought some nice pedals from him at a good price but then like a year later he paid his cell phone bill with my credit card. After spending hours on the phone with the cell company and my credit card company straightening things out I have really wanted to speak with Mr. Swiden. His address was vegas when he ripped me off, and I have not heard of him since. I always suspected you were he, just I guess cause you're both cali pedal dealers who champion Lovetone and my other favorite pedals. Its too bad you and I have so much in common with that scumbag.

this is how i have always viewed harmony central effects forum...like a {censored}ing drug. i can't stop looking at everything and drooling whenever i see something new and amazing. everyday i get on just to see if i can learn about a newer, better pedal than the day before. and i agree, being broke but lusting for gear has become my all encompassing burden.

paraphrased: harmony central is the gateway drug to envy.
