This is the first thread I think I've started here.

I want to admit I am a GearSlut.

Right now, I think i would be embarrassed to tell you how much gear i have.

Why? Because I do not have much music to show for it.

I spend more time buying gear than I do using the gear to make music.

How many others are in the same predicament? Or have experience being in the same place? Or know what I mean?

I love this forum and community and think it is a treasure of information and brings together great people.

Gear lust isn't bad. Perhaps I shouldn't be ashamed. But I do want the lust to go away long enough for me to produce some great music. We all love music.

IT always feels like a technical endeavor when you haven't had a good musical project in a while. And, every new endeavor has a good chance of requiring new tools. Even just a new group to sit around and strum with once a month.

...that is, until you are saturated. Then, you can pull out previously used tools as needed for new situations. Except for digital crap: That you just have to close your eyes and update every 8-10 years. Get newish technology and ride it for a while. Damn Firewire went Tango Uniform, so I had to get a TB-3 interface this time.... At least the 16 channel FW-enabled mixer found a home where it's used....

But, Mics, Guitars, Amps, stands, cases, and so on.... all good - just have to manage the heard. Got plenty for now (actually, I'm a bit out of space...).

Nah. You take your 12 steps down and 11 step pier! I like buying gear. Most of it gets used and I have plenty to donate to worthwhile causes. Besides, different gear makes me make different music.

Good luck, and thanks for the bad coffee.
