1) I believe this thread was made to form a platform of levity, to remind fellow musicians that there is going to be life after isolation. I don’t believe this thread was begun to start a morality debate of how people are choosing to spend their time. If someone is in a position to purchase something, outside of the necessities, and enjoy life, then go for it. Musicians of all walks of life should honor and understand that :-) before this pandemic gripped the *entire* planet, there were people who couldn’t afford the newest Strymon, Gibson Elite, or hand-wired Vox, so they settled with what they could afford, give them the best bang for the buck, until a time presents itself that something else could be purchased. We are all still musicians, making do with what is in front of us.
2) I’m probably going to get a simple reverb pedal, maybe the aforementioned holy grail or something similar. Just deciding which one is what’s delaying it. Enjoy the pedals purchased so far, and hope everyone comes up with some amazing riffs during your isolation!
Food for thought on a simple reverb. I just got a T.C. Electronics Skysurfer pedal brand new for $75 Canadian. Does the trick for me. Has spring, plate and hall settings. It's not complicated but it works well and seems like a good quality unit.
