I've been using effects on an off for years and I finally got round to building a proper board.
And that proper board stays in it's case, while I plug into a cranked Tiny Terror.
I think I have come to the conclusion that after many years of obsessing and lusting after stomp boxes, I buy them, but never use them. Virtually every time I play now I use my Tiny Terror with the guitar straight in. My TH30 is seldom use as I have it set up for pedals in the loop, but can't be bothered to use them.
So having had this revelation I think I'm going to de-pedal my life, strip back to the simple pleasures of guitar, tuner, amp.
I have to say it's an incredibly liberating moment!
