    Ibanez TL-5 Soundtank Tremolo,

    It sounded so sweet, and had a nice level coltrol. I don't know how to describe the kind of tremolo it is other than Schweeeet.

    Fulltone 70s Fuzz.

    I had it before I knew how to use it, and now I want it back.

    DOD FX22 Vibro Thang.

    Real weird, but I dig it.

    Digitech Luxe.

    Probably one of the sweetest, non-dated-sounding chorus effects (technically a detune pedal) I've ever had. Great with gain, too.

    Legend Half Stack. Ridiculously loud, built like a tank, and just so cool.

    70's Tele Custom scored from a pawn in the early 90s for very little.

    Scores of pedals.

    1 of only 2 HW boutique tweed Princeton clones with some tweaks, a boost and NOS Tung-Sol glass. Sold 15 yrs ago because thought it was a toy, not loud enough. Perfect today.

    Hilgen Basso Grande amp with 1x15 speaker
    My first amp; had a grounding issue so I would get a shock, but simple clean amp. Would be great to run through a 2x12 now.

    Music Man 65 410
    First guitar amp - great sounding, but sold it when I moved to a 5th floor Hoboken walkup. Heavy, but great sound.

    Univox Super Fuzz (orange with blue treadle)
    My first pedal, and didn't know how to use it - I just thought it wasn't giving me that Pete Townshend overdrive... Little would I know until Youtube that this is the pedal he used at Live at Leeds, etc. to take his Hiwatts into insanity for lead tones.

    Yamaha DX7 (original)
    This one pisses me off - lent it to a bandmate/friend; she was going through a tough divorce and sold it and couldn't remember who she sold it to. Lost all my original sounds...

    PEDALS
    Marshall Blues Breaker II - a friend still uses it in his studio for recording. Liked that it had a clean boost mode.
    DOD FX90 delay - just because it was my first delay and I'd probably appreciate it more now.
    Marshall VT-1 VibraTrem - sold it because I had trem on my Super Reverb, and rarely used the vibe setting. But now I have two other amps with no trem and would likely use the trem.
    BOSS DS-1 - because it was my first-ever stomp box, circa 1986 or '87.

    Truth is, none of these are that expensive to pick up on eBay or Reverb (or new with the DS-1). So maybe I don't really miss them all that much. Just last week I bought a different used trem pedal and never even thought to check for the VT-1.

    AMPS
    Dr Z Carmen Ghia head - great sounding amp. Very flexible tone control despite it's simplicity. Only amp I've ever owned that I would change the tone in between songs. But, for me, it just had to be turned up pretty loud to get to it's fun spots. At lower volumes it was just another cleanish amp.

    GUITARS
    1974 Gibson L6-S, all maple - the first "real" guitar I bought in 1987. Fell on a sidewalk once so had to have the headstock reattached. I sold it a couple of years ago because I was playing a Hamer much, much more often. But despite getting decent money even with the repair, I should have hung onto this one for nostalgia if nothing else.

    Real good Norlin era Black Beauty. Thing of beauty and power. Lawsuit era 335 copy, my first electric. That thing played amazing but the pickups were dead or dying. I had no idea pickups could be fixed, alas....

    Sometimes I miss my Ceriatone Champ clone. It put out some great raw tone at volumes that, if not "bedroom" level, at least wouldn't cause much hearing loss.

    1969 Vox Lynx guitar. Dark red with on-board wah, fuzz, tuner, treble boost and Bigsby-like vibrato. Stolen from my dorm room in 1971. Saw Mike Campbell playing it (maybe) about 2 years ago in Florida
    Orange metal flake Les Paul, soap bar P90s, Bigsby, year unknown. Also stolen.
    Roland 301 Chorus/Space Echo. Like an idiot I sold for about $250 so I could "upgrade" to a Roland SDE3000 Digital rack-mount.

    Laney AOR 50 Pro tube lead head. It was the first version with less knobs- had 6L6 power tubes in it. It was stolen after I lent it to a buddy for a gig.

    The worst part is, it almost came home. I saw it in Squid Music (local music store, got my first guitar there) about 2 or 3 years ago. It was easy to spot; it was missing the name plate and had some improvised knobs, as well as the 6l6 Mesa tubes. They were asking $600, and I had less than that. A lot less. So I didn’t win it back that time... Still looking for it...

    IMO, this Vox pedal looked cooler than it sounded.

    ( I owned and sold this one twice- on CL and here, years ago!)

    It was a Tube Screamer ( with the 4558 chip) and sounded fine- but I just remember the Tone Control having a crappy taper- either muffled or high. And not quite enough Drive ( I actually used TS's at higher Drive, than many)

    But it was still cool, and a great looker!

    ( I owned and sold the Vox 830 Distortion one too!- same look with red light)

    Those dang Soundtank pedals are frustrating!

    Cheap and sounded great- but the foot switches are a PITA, breaking!

    I had the Tube Screamer one ( gone) and still have the Echomachine- a great-sounding digital delay that sounds analog.

    When I use this one ( it's a backup or I use alone)
    since I don't want any trouble when using it- I will hit switch 'till it turns ON, leave it ON ( like during an entire set where it may be used for a few songs only), but keep MIX knob all the way down, until I am actually using delay- then put it at NOON.
