    Turns out I have to make a business trip next Monday. The route will take me right by the little music store where I've bought several used pedals in the past. Now normally I wouldn't stop, but my Uncle wants me to pick up a set of strings for him. I fear that my membership in artdecade's "No N.P.D.'s in 2017" club is on shaky ground. I'm just going to look of course...not planning on buying any pedals...none whatsoever...better take some cash though, in case I see something non-pedal related I need.
    Right guys?

    Make sure you bring enough cash with you. Just in case...

    Don't feel too bad if you lose membership. A couple weeks after joining the "No N.P.D. in 2017" club I ended up ending my affiliation. BTW, the Black Cat D&S is a GREAT sounding pedal for classic rock tones and can provide a nice dirty-boost with the gain close to minimum.

    Sometimes a deal is just too good to pass up. Enjoy

    Not to worry, artdecade has a long time before the end of the year.:twisted:

    Have fun shopping. Maybe take more cash than you are planning.:lol:

    BTW, that Black Cat is kind of a darker blue for you isn't it? ;)

    You live in Oklahoma--not Bosnia. Your uncle should be able to find strings closer to home.

    So take it as a sign from God and get him his strings, but for you...

    Buy baby, BUY!

    Get something sensible for yourself, also something stupid, and blame it on him.

    (Did you actually expect any of us here to advise restraint in pedal purchases?)

    And it doesn't even have to be a GOOD deal!

    Experienced guitarists like myself have developed the psychological ability to make ourselves BELIEVE it's a good deal, and more important:

    Convince our wives.

    Right now, I'm looking for a $5 off deal on a MIM Tele Thinline that I have my eye on.

    Because how can I resist $5 off?

    Now THAT'S a deal!

    I had the Maxon D&S for a while. Cool Pedal! Wish I would have kept it.

    Buy the pedal. Then start a new thread pledging that you're not going to buy any pedals for the REMAINDER of 2017. And do this for the remainder of 2017 every time you buy another pedal.

    If you see something you think your Uncle would like, then buy it for him. Of course you can borrow it;)
