First thought. It's like he's digressed. From pedals nicely racked with a controller and techs that could fix shit behind the scenes to sloppy pedalboard with odd effects and a tiny tuner I doubt he could see ;)

It's like buying a suit off the rack at Macy's!

I was talking about how the cables are being ran. They're twisted and some are too long. Just not pro like. I could care less what pedals he uses.

I would like to check out the H9. I think it has a really cool concept.

I'm not sniffing corks regarding his pedals. His setup is a mess: cables run poorly, long cable runs, cables against knobs, power loaded on top vs under, etc.

After enough years you'd think he'd at least run a GCX or Cutler setup or something to keep his gear in a good spot behind him and if tweaking is needed at eye level.

The usual tough crowd.

Yeah Bobby, you amateur. Get with the program.

There IS something kind of comical (or perhaps ridiculous) about the fact that there are likely a dozen or more people on this board with nicer "Bobby" rigs than Bobby himself.
