    I had a friend once tell me…
    “You don’t want the gear that someone is willing to sell.
    You want to buy the gear that they have to sell.”

    With that in mind, what pedals/effects are you willing to miss a couple of meals to hold on to?
    These feelings might change in the future as you A/B new equipment to feed the G.A.S.
    But at this moment, what piece(s) of gear will you not part with?

    For me,
    my custom Wren & Cuff Pickle/Phat/Pie/Phuk
    or my Darkglass B3K will not be out of my possession any time soon.

    EA Iron Pig isn't likely to be flipped anytime soon.

    Mine would be my takelfightpedals' The Goose fuzz. It's extremely unique and has several different fuzz "voices" to choose from, as well as a clean blend, though the wet signal doesn't lose much of its low end anyway. Considering they've been recently discontinued, there's no way i'll be letting mine go.

    EXH Bass Microsynth. Mine's falling apart, which is scary to me since I don't have the dough for a new one right now.

    YOU SAY THIS ALL OF THE TIME :p

    I seriously love my pedals, they all could be a goner for the RIGHT piece of synth gear though. I would probably hold onto my PitchFactor though because it could cover a lot of ground while I would rebuild the pedals. This is an unlikely scenario though.

    I would never sell ANY music related gear just to eat, only to buy more gear.

    Disclosures:
    I'm allergic to lentils, lima beans and Hip-Hop.
    On the contrary I'd be better off selling all my pedals and going clean with an Avalon 737, but I just can't help myself. All those colored boxes and strange tones... They're just so stinking fun!

    ElectroniX/Zeibek GeminiDrive
    and Earthbound Audio Iron Pig

    With those two I can cover so much ground that the soles on my shoes wear thin before I'd ever wish to pass them off.
