Amp Confusion

I have several amps that I love. I have one that I almost sold recently. I used it last night at a gig and fell in love with it again. I took down my Craig's List ad and now can't wait to use it again.

Why am I so confused about amps and my sound? Seems like I go from amp to amp... searching for something that I already have.

Is this a kind of musician's disease?

That's funny, Honeyboy. I'm not necessarily an amp-geek, but I can totally relate to your experience. For some reason, every now an then, I get really dissatisfied with my sound and then I start experimenting with all kinds of stuff (pedals, etc.) - only to realize that the best sound (for me) is usually just to plug the guitar into the amp and nothing else in between. It's like a revolving door, doesn't seem to stop ever. 8)

ah, the quest for TONE. it can be endless, futile, or rewarding. I play many styles and finally have a rig where I can be happy.......this month.
the ear always seems to be searching. enjoy the journey and don't take it personal. I think we all want more and more.
