    Anybody own or use any of the STL Tone Hub Kemper tones? Curious about the new 5153, as well as Andy James and Angel Vivaldi packs.

    I might get flak for this but, consider staying off the forum for a few weeks. If you’re anything like me this place is a mild (or stronger) form of kryptonite for your wallet.

    For the next few weeks just practice/learn more songs and anytime you feel tempted to window shop, go play some video games or something instead. It’s way better to get lost in a few $30-$60 games for 6 weeks instead of making multiple $300-$900 purchases in the same time span. If you have GamePass, even better.

    One thing I've done is to keep a pretty strict gear budget. I set aside $50 a month and then keep $500 to use for bigger purchases occasionally. If I don't use it, it just keeps filling up. When I sell gear it goes into the same thing, so it encourages me to sell stuff before I buy anything new.

    I do this at Ally savings. They let you set up buckets within the account so you can separate money for different goals. You could also do this internally with a normal savings account and a spreadsheet, or just having a dedicated gear account.

    I bought my last guitar through Affirm purely so I could do payments, which I said I wouldn't buy anything else until those payments are done.

    not to side track the thread, but I have bad allergies. There is only one thing that I've found that helps. ...it's an internet home remedy that sounds like BS, but I swear... it works.

    Put some vaseline in your nose. I swears it works. I haven't had allergy problems, or been sick period since I started doing it a couple of years ago lol

    It basically keeps all the crap floating in the air from going up your sinuses.

    Not sure if that'll help with asthma though. But for breathing in general it's been a huge help for me.

    More than any of that, really learn to dial in your gear. Learn the eccentricities and quirks of each dial. Also, don't have too much bullshit hooked up. While there are some artists with Mission Control at their feet (Frusciante, for instance), a lot of the pros have minimalist, bare basic pedalboards. The happier you are with the gear you use, the less you want to buy and try the gear you don't have.

    I wished it could be that simple but thanks ...its Asthma, all the X-rays, cat scans with dye, breathing tests confirm , hey but i did lower my cholesterol by a table spoon of apple cider vinegar a day...

    Breathing is the current of life , so all the NP's and PA's ive dated told me to start with the air that i breath..make sense , many drugs to try out for what works for me ..

    Ok ... back on checking out some cool gear people are buying !

    You like cheap DIY stuff like me, right? I have several box fans with furnace filters strapped to them sitting around my house, lol. Cheap easy way to filter the air!

    I was leaning more towards a blood splatter but we'll see. I still have to finish up some other projects first.
