not anymore Alan, so I'm the unsanctioned.  After July I sold them all. 
  I actually left them at y2k4, totally forgot them and had to drive 
back up to Santa Cruz to get them.

I do use processors though and have a good time with noise and such.

I understand that these things cost a lot of money.  i get them off of 
eBay because they're cheap.  I'm looking at my stuff: Marshall JMP-1, 
Carvin Tone Navigator, Apex 204, Digiteck TSP-12,  Digitech Studio Quad 
and a stereo guitar.  I'm not immune to this stuff.  I am a teenager 
too, you know and still have trouble realizing I'm not.

It's just music that gets sidetracked when you've got a gear hankering.
