    I'd love to hang with my bretheren of the effects forum. I'm thinking that it would be really cool to get together with a bunch of us and make noises and get to try out each other's pedals and stuff since it's pretty impossible to do that in music stores.

    It'd probably have to be in California since a lot of the people are there (jetpack, bongo, mysticboo, ericf, etc.). We don't have to set a date or anything, I'm just trying to see if people would be interested and if someone knows of a place we could do it?

    I'd be willing to hop on a plane, train, or drive to jam and make noise.

    Thoughts?

    PS. I don't mean to exclude are buddies in other countries, If we can get a lot of people to head over there, I'm all for that too.

    I'm leaving CA in just over a week, and don't plan to visit back here anytime soon. :) Otherwise I would have loved to participate.

    OK, OK, I'll hire a lookalike and send him in my purple suit. I'll give him some flash cards with random technobabble that he can read off ostentatiously. If anyone asks him a compressor question, he can look at them and say "click the link in my sig!"

    no, no, you're getting it wrong. It has to be in NY so
    a) I can be there
    b) it's easier for toasted and tayste:)

    I always bring my pedalboards to the NY GTG's anyway, it ended up getting monopolized by a certain few FX forum members last time... you know who you are ;)

    New York would work well for me. I could just drive. The West Coasters would have to fly.
     
  10. I might drive too!! :meh:

    U lucky buggers!
     
  11. Do it in Chicago so that I can ride my bike.....

    (If I start in the morning, I could get there by 2 in the morning or so....hmm...)

    I'm also in Southern Cali...it's sunny here, and the women are all cuter here ;) I vote cali as well...especially cuz I'm poor and in college and there's NO WAY I could make it out of state like that.

    SoCal is good for me :D

    The reality is that my family and job demands are such that traveling for a GTG is pretty much off the radar for me.

    See? All us SoCal people should meet up sometime. What part of Cali are you in? I'm an LA area type.

    Another vote for So Cali :D I think it would be awesome to see all the cool effects that everyone has! Although, I am sure it wouldn't help my GAS list any, and you all are probably much much better players than I am :D.

    Also, I'm in the greater (read: the very fringes of) Los Angeles County area (Where LA county borders on San Bernardino County).

    +1 for cali! this sounds like it's gearing up to be a microcosmic/"various-parts-of-the-globe" effects GTG. and that is all good.
