Seriously, I really like my set up and it 's already large! Everything, current on the boards 27 pedals... on the shelf: about a dozen more, on the workbench: 4 more... plans to build: about a baker's dozen... on the list of wanna buys: 6-8 more That's over 60 pedals... that I actually want to keep... and only about 5 that I feel like I will eventually sell. Every pedal has some sort of unique quality that keeps me interested. My current boards are basically partitioned into 4 loops and a looping station board. I also have a guitar specific board planned. If this keeps up I will have 6 modular boards... each about the size that most people would consider effects junkie status. I keep my band set up to about 11-12 pedals and rotate some out. The music that I do on my own is crazy enough to warrant my entire set up, but beyond here is really just about the enjoyment of playing different circuits... Lost in a wormhole? maybe... but it's a fun wormhole. I still haven't learned how to make the call on allowing a pedal to "beat out" another in the collection... even some of the "cheaper " pedals have character. So what tipped the scales for you guys to simplify and stop hoarding?
