i noticed something about myself...

anybody else do this with gear you spend well over $1,000 on?

1. get new piece of gear
2. instantly think it is the greatest piece of gear ever (or hate it with a passion in which case skip to number 5)
3. use it for everything...even if it really does not work
4. get tired of it and realize it might not be as good as initially thought (probably because i never took the time to figure out how to use it properly)
5. stop using it after finding the next greatest gear (new piece of gear process begins again at 1)
6. after some time, give the piece of gear a try again
7. finally figure out how to use the stupid thing the way it was intended
8. use it properly when appropriate
9. sound like you might know what in the world you are talking about on gearslutz...

I normally find out some of the best gear is the piece I just sold and I have to buy it back tutt, the really great gear is the stuff I dislike or unsure about it when I first get it.

Funny, this is exactly what I do. It's not necessarily a bad thing though, it's another way of learning. I learn by falling forward.

I think a lot of people do that, but often they do #9 first.
