Alright, I have GAS...bad...

 

I'm talking machine gun farts bad...

 

Yeah, so I sold some stuff on eBay, collected the finds in a PayPal account, and for some reason, I can't sleep knowing I have $500 just sitting in an account not being used. So I decide to spend it. Last time I went on a buying spree, I bought my USA RI Big Muff Pi and love it, a new guitar strap, a few DVD's, CD's and some other stuff.

 

This time I'm going nuts, bought myself a new pedalboard, EH Bassballs, some new mic cables, a poster from a concert I went to, bidding on some microphones for the band, and what the hell is wrong with me? What else do I need? :D

 

No, don't need any more basses, parents notice them. But I can slip the effects by :D

My wife's out of town for the weekend...so I bought a new speaker cabinet.

 

It's an SWR Big Ben.

 

Now I'll be playing through my Jr. Goliath 2x10 cab and the Big Ben 1x18. The top is an SWR SM-400.

 

You'll probably be able to hear me no matter where you live.

 

Our gig in San Jose went pretty well today, except they said I was too loud. Moi?

 

I'll be playing in a park in Suisun City on Monday afternoon. I won't know the name of the park until tomorrow night.

 

If you know where Suisun City is, give me a holler.

Perhaps as a blessing in disguise, I don't have the money to have GAS, although I did recently get me a distortion pedal with money I rounded up, and I'm sad to say I'm pretty dissapointed with I also had to lie about how much it cost.

God help me when I have a steady income...

The GAS thing is hard to stop. Especially when you're young. I'm at the point now (after 34 basses in 6 years) that I'm settled on my gear. Fortunately.

 

I guess when I'm GASSY I gotta step back, think, and answer - "Do I NEED this?" If I can't come up with at least a few valid and needed reasons, I don't buy it.

I struggle with GAS every day it seems. I am trying to like what I have. For the most part, it is good. I did see a nice combo online this morning of a single space EQ and Compressor from Ashly. I have debated putting an EQ and compressor in my rack, so this would be pretty cool.

 

I have a 4X10, but tried my rig with a 1x15, too. That sounded sweet. I may have to add a 15" to my rig. I was working on getting smaller, but I am headed the other way.

My GAS is controled by the fact i am a gear testing freak. I hate to buy something before i have tested it live, in the studio, and at home to see just what it can do. i just hate to know that i spent my money on something that i don't need or something that dosen't do what i want it to. the power amp that i just purchased, i spent two months researching and comparing it just to make sure it was the one i wanted and needed. I guess it's just because i don't really have the money and I'm too lazy to buy, try, return, and re-buy.
I didn't come here to play. I came here to make babies.

Hey, Tim,

 

Could you try sending the Fender logo to me in one piece? :D
