    My first 'proper' gig was 50 years ago!

    I think I started playing for money in 1971, so it's been over 50 for me too!

    OK, I just checked and you of course are right. I must have bought this stomper in the early '80s. It has rocked for a good long time, and now I have a new TS9 to carry on the tradition.

    Anyone use a blender pot?

    Yes, I have wired that same setup as Intune to several of my Strats, and I've found it quite useful. It is subtle onstage and doesn't make a huge difference, but playing at home I enjoy having it.

    When is too much gear too much

    I'm down to 20-something electric guitars, and I regularly play around 15 of them. I also have 3 basses and an acoustic guitar! Oh well, I have to be excessive in something.
