    I had a few in the closet at one point, but I traded them all to GC just to get rid of them (this was before I discovered CL/OfferUp).

    I have a Crybaby from Hell that I recently replaced with an Ibanez WH-10 v3. I like the Ibanez, but I'm not yet convinced I don't want to keep the Crybaby around for certain things. We'll see.

    I also have an EHX Ravish Sitar pedal I like, but I'm looking into something else that's synth-y but less specialized. I'd keep the Ravish though, and switch them out as needed.

    I don't have a ton of pedals, but run about six in my chain.

    The only things that found their way off of my board are chorus and delay..I just don't have a lot of use for those sounds.

    I replaced them both with more overdrives :lol:

    I shedded most of my unused pedals and now down to two. One is my old switchblade Boss LS-2 that could easily be thrown back in for a variety of reasons. The other is the CB Belle Epoch which is boxed, photographed and ready to sell, but it is sooo good in both the pre amp and the delay that I hesitate ... for about three years now.:rolleyes: I'm just not a delay player, nor do I need a pre-amp ... right now.

    Only you can prevent the hurt and agony of an abandoned pedal. Adopt one in lieu of buying new from a pedal farm!

    I've been up and down on the pedal herd. Right now it's a basic setup. Volume pedal, Keeley compressor+, EP boost, Tubescreamer, Orange BB, Flashback for short delay, Alter Ego for long delay, and the Viscous Vibe. A few are still hanging out in the garage i.e. some large floor tuner and the wah wah. That's it. Sold the rest. I can do country clean and with compression. Alternately I can do some blues and rock when required.

    Most of the time I enjoy just straight into the amp.

    I've owned A LOT of pedals over the years, but this is just what's left that I don't use anymore.

    I had a bunch that I was holding on to for no reason, and then realized that I'd rather sell them and let someone else use them..

    Sold last year after sitting around 2+ years
    Paul Cochrane Timmy
    Keeley Compressor
    Suhr Shiba Drive
    TC Flashback (2nd one)
    Keeley Katana Boost
    TC Ditto Looper

    Bought, tried, sold after less than a month:
    Friedman BE Overdrive
    EH Pitchfork
    Barber Direct Drive v3 - smaller footprint than original, doesn't sound as good.
    Ibanez SF10 Swell Flanger

    Sold this year:
    MXR Distortion II
    MXR Phase 90
    TC Helicon Harmony G-XT

    Left on the shelf:
    Ibanez TS9, Keeley-modded
    Ibanez AD9, original
    MXR Paperweight


    I actually used the TS9/AD9 for a Labor Day garage gig plugged into a Roland Keyboard amp (KC500). wasn't horrible... the paperweight haven't decided what to make of it yet. could be a fun footswitch for Tremolo on my Fender amps...

    That's got to be 50 pedals. Nice collection.

    I use a Boss Compressor, I used the 1st edition one from the 80's until it died. That's the only pedal I ever wanted to mess with. And when I do need fuzz, my pal gave me a Danelectro Grilled Cheese Fuzz, which supplies all the hissing death of 30 pedals that I ever need, then I put it back in the desk drawer until the next time I'm on cold medicine.

    All I have laying around is a Joyo American Sound, a Danelectro Fish 'n' Chips, and Vox Tonelab SE, all boxed and ready to sell. I only use a Boss GT-100 now, and I got rid of everything else.

    I have 39 and use 14 regularly. I should really think about selling some!

    Mojo Hand Iron Bell (Big Muff)
    DigiTech Polara reverb
    EHX Micro POG

    I've never seen those white Ibanez ones. What are they?
