Sweet Honey; Mosky Mini Muff; Topanga. Others are fungible but not those.

I get the feeling SHOD people don’t get on with Tube Screamers and vice versa. True for me - I try and can’t make use of a lot of ODs.

I don't have a single pedal of those. Let alone 5. If someone asks me and the price is right…? All can go. As guitarists, we live in glorious, happy times. Today, there are at least 3 equivalent or better alternatives to every very great pedal. Pedals are pure tools for me. Necessary. But nothing I'm attached to. With a guitar? Well... that's a completely different story. I can easily name 5 that I wouldn't give away for the world.

That’s hard for me to answer. Been playing since 1957 and during that time have only owned two pedals (other than a looper). One was the original Gibson Maestro Fuzz Tone I bought in 1962-63 right after they first came out. That was actually the very first guitar pedal made.

The other is just a tuner pedal that I still have but rarely use. So that and the looper are the only two of the three that I own.

I have a Robert Keeley modified Rat, from when he was just some dude modifying pedals. I have a Jaurnig DGTM overdrive that used to belong to Robber Ford. I don't know how valuable they are, but to me they're valuable to me. I have a Klon KTR from the first production run, but I'd prob sell it if the money was right. I have a Jetter 45/100 that turned me on to the whole Blues Breaker sound. It's switch is a bit faulty now and I have a replacement, but haven't sold the first one for sentimental reasons. I have a Spouse Black box that I don't think I'd ever sell. And probably my RC Booster like a few people have also said. I guess it's all overdrives for me!
Gots plenty of boost, drive, fuzz, distortion types & IMO those will be readily available. I won't sell my 2 Boss SG-1 Slow Gears, 2 Boss CE-2 Choruses (original MiJ not WAZA) & BOSS TW-1 T Wah.

I've kinda been on a pedal-buying freeze for a while, just because I don't realistically use anything besides a reverb & delay, but I could see myself selling either one of those; I'm not terribly attached to the particular models.

Boss Fender Deluxe Reverb pedal, for use as a backup in case my amp takes a dump on a gig. Other than that, the only effects I use are the onboard reverb and tremelo in my amps.

The first two pedals I bought, used in the early ‘80s. EHX Bad Stone and EHX Clone Theory. I’m too emotionally attached to them to ever… what? I did? When? Oh.

OK, of the pedals I bought with the money I got from selling those, I would sell any if I had to, but I’d prefer to keep my TC Spark, and my Cool Cat Tremolo. Not the end of the world if I sold them, as there are replacements, but I’d prefer to just keep them. They do exactly what I want.

The one I would really never sell is the Roland Funny Cat. I keep trying to find something that gives me the distortion tone I get from the Soft Distortion Sustainer side of that pedal, but no luck. I have to keep it, because that’s my favourite tone.

I have had my Strymon Flint the longest (5 or 6 years now) & would be the last to go.

I also love my Peterson Strobostomp tuner.

I have owned an Xotic SP comp 4 different times so I might as well keep my current one. Using it with my bass.

Wampler Tumnus. 3Rd time I've owned this one. My favorite OD.

Subdecay Super Spring Theory. Room setting adds to my bass sound. Best way to mix wet/dry signal for natural bass tones.

Keeley Compressor+ and Compressor Mini get an honorable mention from my guitars.

—Ibanez TS-9RI (again, easy to find a replacement, but essential to my rig)

I've got a Marshall Bluesbreak from the first year they were introduced and a Boss OD-1 from the first year they came out. Both in excellent condition withe the original boxes. I've used the Boss regularly since I bought it. I retired the Marshall about five years ago, just couldn't find a setting I liked when I switched to teles full time. Sounded great with my strat though.

Other than those two, I'll never say never again.

I had no clue there were so many pedals! I don't use many and only see what is in the shops, but the array on display here is stunning!
