After a decade of restraint (aka "a period of intense and thoughtful research during which many TalkBass Members provided excellent advice") I gave in to the GAS which had been building within me and started splurging on new gear. On Monday, I took delivery of a new amp. On Tuesday, I picked up a secondhand speaker cab. On Wednesday, my new Zoom B6 Pedal was delivered. It's now Thursday evening... and I still haven't tried out ANY of them. "What is the secret to this incredible feat of self control?" I hear you ask. On Monday, I discovered I lacked a necessary cable. On Tuesday, one son returned from school camp and fell asleep before I could make any noise. On Wednesday, other son began night shifts at hospital, now sleeping while I'm awake. You know what's worse than a bad case of GAS...? Sitting in a room with a bunch of cool new gear that you can't use! (Rock and) Roll on the weekend!
