Tony Pay says:

<<I still maintain that anyone with an understanding of what they're doing -- or even anyone with any sense of proportion -- treats experimenting with that sort of equipment as just part and parcel of the constant experimenting that all playing is in any case. Yesterday's 'solution to
all my problems' is just 'part of everything' today, and might well be on tomorrow's scrapheap.>>

To me, this is so true, it's worth quoting.

Tony continues:

<<Some wonderful players don't bother with the equipment side of experimentation at all, and just stick with what they found to work for them in the first place.>>

To which I might add - I'm still waiting for some things to work for me in the first place!
