I'll have the CE-2, if it isn't too much trouble. I'll give it back if you need it.
I admit I made it personal to collect a few "cheap" pedals (Dod, Ibanez Soundtank) that I had seen in the guitar magazines I was reading when I was a broke teenager ;-) I still have the first pedal I ever bought: the BOSS SD-2 Dual Overdrive. I don't really use it anymore but I can't sell it. The Marshall Shredmaster was the 2nd pedal I purchased. It's funny because at the time I was into Metallica's Black album and although I had also tried out the Bluesbreaker and the DriveMaster, I quickly concluded they were not ballsy enough. If I had known the Bluesbreaker would cost that much today (3.5x more!!!), I would have saved money and bought a few ones ;-)
I've been a pedal minimalist for years, usually no more than 3 or 4 on my board. I've never sold any when changing up so I have about 7 that I've retired. I do still have my Boss BCB-6 pedalboard with original black label pedals; DM-2, OD-1, CE-2 and power supply.
Believe it or not, I keep my pedalboards very minimalists too. I have a small one that can fit 4 pedals for rehearsals and small gigs and a larger one that can fit 8 pedals max for larger venues. I stick to my 3 sounds (clean, crunch, lead) and add modulation or delay when it's required by our playlist. I wouldn't be able to balance 128 presets at sound check anyways ;-) Here's my big 'board last time I gigged with it.
I used to build pedals, 4 to 6 pedals a month. I must have dozens of Big Muff variants alone. Almost every schematic that was on KitRae's site. I think I have 4 banana boxes full of DIY pedals and switchers. I used to love having the big pedal boards, like Ed o'Brien of Radiohead. Think the largest pedal train board and I had two boards like that. None of that minimalist nonsense, with pedals I'm all about more is more. I built so many pedalboards over the years I could have gone pro building them for others.
I too have a bunch of pedals gathering dust. However, unlike guitars, pedals take up little space. I can put them all in one box and stick them up in my attic. You never know when you might want to revisit that one sound.
EvenTide took care of my pedal problem when they came out with the H9
now its just ibanez tube screamer>H9>dunlop mini volume pedal.
Whenever your better half tells you that you have too many pedals, show this picture. That should solve the problem!!! This was taken about 7 years ago. I'm actually putting a plan to sell most of my collection to fund other stuff (high end guitars).
Had a Big Muff in the closet for 45 years. Turns out, it was one of the first ones ever made. My Tech Guy called it a "Museum Piece". Sold it for $2000 on Reverb.com.
Id like the ce-2 if you still have it. Let me know price, and contact info. I have a ph1r but am also curious what you're asking for it.
Yeah, I keep surfing the BOSS ME-80 ads. But I would never have known what to do with it if I hadn't spent the time with individual pedals.
I've got a bunch of pedals that I don't use, however I'd never want to get rid of them. Pedals have a way of elbowing themselves back onto your board. Rediscovering an old pedal is almost as satisfying as buying a new one. They're guitar candy.
Just turn them into art.
I have a strat and a tele, both fairly new but not played. I'm over 65 and don't have a clue about peddles and I feel too ridiculous to go to a store to ask about getting the first one. I am not a guitar pro and am still a beginner. Which one would be a good one for me to "play around" with just for fun and what do they cost and now do you connect it?
The cost goes from around $50 for a cheap knockoff, to more often $100-$150. As for what pedal to get, what kind of music are you playing,.? You may want an OD pedal, a boost pedal, delay, and reverb. It depends upon your amp and the sound you are going for.
White Ibanez pedals, looks like.
