Pedalboard complete, time to sell the multi!!!  I sold my Korg AX3000G with hardcase for P10,000.  Also, I was able to sell the MIM Strat for P20,000!!!  So, I had additional pedal GAS funds.   :money: :money: :money:

The following week, my pedalboard looked like this…









After a couple of months, I was walking in Greenhills when I saw the ZT Club at InTune.  Being a Lunchbox owner, I felt like I needed to test this bigger version of my beloved amp!!!  Darn!!!  I loved it!!!   :drool: :drool: :drool:

After I left the store, I called my wife right away.

Me:  Babe, GAS.
Wife:  What this time?
Me:  Amp.  The bigger version of the Lunchbox. 
Wife:  If you can afford it, go for it.
Me:  Ay lab yooooooooooooo!!!!

The following day, I filed a short term loan at our office’s credit union.  And after 5 days, the Club went home with me.   :-D :-D :-D











Gear update:

Added a Boss NS2 on my board.
Still have the Yamaha acoustic and the Fender Strat.
ZT Lunchbox and Club





(Next:  A good acoustic guitar would be nice...)

bitin pa din bro. i was holding back on the lunchbox kasi nga maliit n mejo duda ako kung kaya sumabay.but after reading this thread im getting a lunchbox

Basta hindi metal ang tugtugan, kayang-kaya ng Lunchbox, bro.  I laughed at Doubletrouble when I first saw his amp.  After a few months, bumili na din ako ng Lunchbox.  Hehehe...   :lol: :lol: :lol:

wow.... no time was spared for GAS. noice!

Yes, bro...  I was (past tense talaga?  hehehe) really like that.  Pag may gusto ako, hindi ako matatahimik until makuha ko yun, which I think is very unhealthy kasi naglo-loan pa ako for GAS.  Jefisipbata could attest to this.  Hehehe...   :lol: :lol: :lol:

If my memory serves me right, P14,000 ang kuha ko dun.  Hindi kasi naka-sale that time e.  Galing ako Yupangco kahapon, nakita ko naka-sale ang DD65 ngayon.   :)

I was having a blast with my set up.  I could get all the crunch I want from the Jekyll & Hyde through the Club.   8-)

I was able to sell my ZT Lunchbox with Baluti Bag really fast after I posted it here on the classifieds.  Got some extra cash!!!   :money: :money: :money:

One day, I was with my wife and daughter and we were walking around Glorietta.  My wife decided to go to Fix Salon to have something done to her hair.  I was left with my daughter so we walked around the mall while waiting for my wife.

My daughter said she wanted some pizza (she only eats White Pizza from Sbarro) so we walked to Glorietta 5 and had some White Pizza from Sbarro.  After eating, we passed by RJ Guitar Store so I went inside and checked out some Taylor guitars.  The prices were written on pieces of paper attached to each guitar.  The cheapest non-baby Taylor was around P50,000.  I tried it and I really liked it!  Dang!  I thought my Yamaha acoustic guitar was good sounding already but when I tried this P50,000 Taylor guitar, I got hooked!  :drool: :drool: :drool:

So, I talked to the salesperson.

Me:  Brader, P50,000 ba talaga price nito?  Wala nang ibababa?  Bertdey ni RJ ngayon, di ba?  (LAWL!!!!)
Salesperson:  Naku, kakatapos lang po ng birthday ni RJ, sir.  Hehehe…
Me:  Awwwww…  Sayang naman.  Gustong-gusto koi to kaso hindi ko afford.
Other Salesperson:  (Sumali sa usapan.  Bisor yata sya or something.)  Sir, pwede ko ibigay sa yo yan for PXX,XXX (sorry, can’t remember the exact amount)…
Me:  Ay, mataas pa din po.  Sorry hindi ko po afford pala talaga.

I left the store together with my daughter and went to Fix Salon to fetch my wife.  Here comes another husband and wife talk…

Me:  $#%&na!!!  May magandang gitara sa RJ kaso napakamahal!  Acoustic!
Wife:  Magkano?
Me:  Singkwenta mil ang lintek!!!
Wife:  Ngeeee!  Mahal nga…
Me:  Kung around trenta mil lang yun, ipapangutang ko sa credt union yun!
Wife:  Hintay ka na lang ng birthday ni RJ.  Hahahaha!



After some time, this thing found it's way to my house.  :-D

Fast forward to the current year…   :-D

By January 2012, I was able to sell / swap some pedals here and there.  I also ordered a Shredhead from MarkV. 

My loving wife went to the US on November 2011 so I ordered some Lava Cables online and had them delivered to my wife’s hotel.  Of course, 5 patch cables is not enough so I had to order some Lava solderless plugs from The Gasfather, Turi.

This was my set up at the start of the year:














The problem with this board was the sharp corners of the aluminum.  My big toe  got cut more than once.  So, I got really mad and decided to post the pedalboard with Baluti bag on the classifieds right away.  After a couple of hours, it was already sold.  Yes, a couple of hours only.  Low price leads to faster sales.  LAWL!!!   :lol:

So, after selling the aluminum board with bag, I texted The Gasfather right away to ask if he has stocks of Pedaltrain Jr.  Negative response.  I wanted to get a PT Jr. right away, on that same day if possible.   :| :| :|
So I sent a PM on Facebook to one of my coworkers who was in the US that time.  I asked him if he could bring home a PT for me.  He said yes so I ordered from Musicians Friend right away and asked MF to have it delivered to my coworker’s hotel.

While waiting for my PT Jr., I sold / traded some pedals and bought some also.  After a week, my PT Jr. arrived and this was how the set up looked like:









It did not end there.  I heard about this bowteeeek pedal called Wampler.  I researched about it a little, listened to some demos, and asked some experts.  After a few days, I was already in touch with Jefisipbata.  He calls me Mr. Excitement.  LAWL!!!

Cut the long story short, this is my current set up:

Alam mo, bro...  In 3 months, nabago lahat talaga.  From pedalboard to the pedals mismo.  Yung NS2 na lang ang naiwan sa pedals ko nung January 2012.  Hindi ko din maalala ngayon kung pano ko yun nagawa.  Hindi ko maalala kung saan ako humugot ng pera.  Seriously.   :money: :money: :money:
