I understand the "bought" part of this. But can you explain the "sold" thing? Is that like something where a [pedal goes away or something? And if it is, how do you accumulate them then???I’ve bought & sold almost every classic & boutique pedal. Currently have six pedals all very popular/talked about. Chances are they could all change.
Hullo!:Hmmm, I'm going to have to go with classes of pedal rather than individual examples.
1) Maxon AD including 900, 999Pro, AD9Pro, 18v AD80 (six or so)
TS10. I bought it when my TS9 got stolen out of my gig bag, would have been some time late in ‘87. Needed dirt, and it was what was available. Also taken was an EH Electric Mistress which I tried several others trying to replace it, with no joy.
1st gen Ibanez Stereo Chorus is number two, dad bought it about ‘83, gigged with it extensively, and used it on at least a couple of his albums. It made it onto my about ‘88ish, when he went keyboard for awhile.
Numbers 3 and 4 are 1st gen Boss pedals. PH-1 Phaser, BF-2 Flanger. Both of these came to me within a year of each other, and when you could pick them up in the $25 to $40 range, during the time almost everyone had abandoned their pedals, going multi effect pedals, or an amp with built ins. The PH is a silver screw and the BF is black screw.
Pedal number 5, and yes, I should be ashamed to have this on my board, Tone Monk Om. Yes, it’s a rip off of something else. Yes, it was likely built with components acquired under false pretences. Yes, it’s heavily gooped so when someday it dies, there will be no repair possible. But, it just sounds so darned amazing. Anybody else still tethered to the naughty tone monk?
So that’s my 5.
just one addendum after some play today...they(TS10's) do have a decent amount of drive...just not the over the top Marshall midrange crunch type drive.Agree, TS10's(have 2>late 80's purchases). They are not on my board(s).They sound best as stand alone units, to these ears, so they stay solo, in my playing space for when i just want one pedal into an amp. Guitar >TS10> amp. I did many open stage jams ,with just this simple signal, and great sound resulted, no matter the amp. Nothing warms up and smooth's the sound like a TS10.Great boosts not heavy on the drive. So if i had to go with just one that i do own...but the question is 5...
