Christmas of 84 got a Squier Bullet and some SS Fender amp that I don't remember the name. Played that "rig" until the summer of 86. Dad bought me a Peavey Bandit 65 and I bought myself a red Squier HH Strat. Played that "rig" until 2015 when something happened. On a whim I bought a Blackstar HT1. Played that for a year but it didn't have the clean sound I like. Bought a VHT Special 6 ultra. Played that for two years then traded it and a bunch of cash (big mistake) for bought a Princeton Reverb Reissue w/12 inch speaker. Got gas again right after Christmas and am now the owner of a TMDR. How is it that I did fine for 29 years with a SS amp and a Squier and have purchased 4 amps in 5 years? Oh and wile I'm here, since 2013 I have purchased 3 Mexican strats, a Mexican tele, Epiphone les Paul, and a partscaster. What the heck happened to me? And why?
