He's just like a little kid when the big Christmas catalog comes out. My hubby that is; he is drooling and really wants this: mxr super badass distortion pedal. My answer is "No" until he admits that yes, he can play well. I am tired of all of his negative comments, but then starts in with how he wants this and that item. Or, if he sells off some of the multiply amps, then possibly he can buy this pedal. We shall see!
