I own 4 acoustic guitars on two continents, including my SCGC dreadnought. I have 2 F5 style mandolins, a A style octave mandolin, and an A style mandola. I have not played any of these things in more than a month. I have been obsessed by my electric instruments.
Th G5 is getting a lot of playing time, but my JBovier EMC-5 is currently plugged in to two Marshall amps and I am re-evaluating my pedal board!
I’ll be 54 years old in 2 weeks. What the hell?
I’m getting rid of the Boss Chorus CE-3 (Japanese made 1986). But I’m keeping the flanger. It’s kind of cool to run stereo and hear the wash move left-right-left-right.
My Super Overdrive, a pedal I have loved for about 30 years, now seems a bit over the top. I have the drive turned all the way down. I should probably replace it with a Blues Driver.
I’m still thinking about reverb and tremolo units, and at this point I kind of miss my old (1965) Fender Bandmaster head for its too cool tremolo unit.
I’m on the fence about the looper pedal. I can see the practice applications in it, but I’m not sure how committed I am to that.
Toward what end? you ask. CD #3 is still in the works. Two songs (Vacant Chair and Being a Boy) need solos, and the timbre of the record is more electric than before. So the solos need to be electric. I’ve been spending most of my time writing/practicing, rewriting/re-practicing them; searching for tones that are unusual for the genre (whatever it may be) but still work within the context of the song.

Cool Daniel, Look at a Soul Food instead of a Blues Driver, a little more Klon like, I have a small sonocake looper, 25 bucks, great for practice, really small on the board

Never enough Overdrives Daniel, Check out a Timmy and a Zen Drive, plenty of BYOC as well for a lot less money if your handy with an iron. Next Strymon for time effects, it’s the total bomb

I have a Zen Drive and a few others I put away since the ZD is just better.
