Gear Acquisition Syndrome – Pedalboards

by on Mar.06, 2014, under Dave's Must Haves, Music

All musicians have heard of (and have) GAS. It’s the uncontrollable need for that next toy. I have it, and it plagues me constantly.

My current issue is my sound. I *want* to move to analog, but I sometimes want digital. And, I want to be able to travel. Which means I need to be able to quickly disconnect my gear, box it up, and then quickly set it up.

I solved my analog portions with two pedal boards, a nice SKB, and a crappier Boss BCB-60. That lets me take lots, or a few pedals out, and then set them up, pack them up.

But, what about when I want digital? My GSP-1101 is racked with a power station that feeds all my equipment (PA to Bass AMP), and a patch panel. I think my next little investment needs to be a 2u rack (and a rack tuner :)) to allow me to take the gsp + controller in two small packages.
