      Any other cool things about your studio we should know? Is it in an old church? Does your gear have history? Anyone notable recorded there? Etc.
      - hopefully, I'll be the famous person who has recorded there - it is a project studio. It does take up about half the upper floor in my townhouse.

        Wow, that's a good number of pedals! Favorite?

          Sorry late response - haven't been on here awhile.

          My favourites are the
          Earthquaker Afterneath - ambience, reverb, etc
          Keeley D&M Drive (on a pedalboard, so not shown) - overdrive and boost
          Garagetone Axle Grease - analogue delay, super open sounding - best delay I've heard that doesn't use tape and super cheap.

            Also not showing the other 6 or 7 guitars I have 😀
