    I am so easily impressed with pedals, I hardly ever sell any of them

    Mine has the Sniper mod, but still a relatively cheap pedal. I use it in my effects loop for boosting leads. Solid pedal. I’ll never sell it.

    Original, first-version (triangle knob) Big Muff. Well, it was a cheap pedal back then.

    Through the right amp it’s hard to beat a BD-2. Thick as flies and cheap as dirt used.

    Through any amp the Mr Vermin is a ‘real deal’ Rat with the LM308N for less than what a new Rat was in the 80’s. Got mine used for $55.

    2E5EB8E7-DE10-49E3-A407-8263F588BF70.jpeg This was an expensive pedal I never liked but wouldn’t sell because I was too cheap to take the loss when a few forum complaints about not having dual level controls drove the price down.

    Fast forward a few years, nobody wants them so it’s now a cheap pedal and I like it better!
    Go figure at least I didn’t sell it...

    I couldn’t choose just one
    I have to say the grunge pedal is one because it was my first pedal back in the early 2000s and actually doesn’t sound too bad
    I sold my original made in USA and kick myself all the time for it

    The small clone is just a great chorus and cheap

    I got the dod at a music shop that they just wanted to get rid of it so they priced it at 20 dollars and now it’s my favorite comp , I recently saw in guitar world that they are actually reissueing these again

    And the Dunlop uni vibe because it’s a great all around vibe / phaser and CHEAP

    Ammoon (rebranded Joyo) American sound and my Sweet Baby Overdrive. Both under $35.00 a piece. Both sound great
    with my Gretsch 5220 and my heavily modded GFS Tele copy.

    BOSS TU-2.
    It's a tuner.
    It works.
    Why would I sell it?
    I'm guessing mine is 16-20 years old. No clue when I got it.

    And under the category of "Had I only known better", if I still had my BOSS DS-1 (circa 1987) and my first-gen Barber LTD I would never get rid of them now. But tastes and knowledge change over time.

    Thing is, all my pedals are cheap, either because I bought them a long time ago, or because, well, I’m cheap. A couple of these might actually put a dollar in my pocket, but not enough to make it worth selling them.

    Bad Stone, bought for maybe $20 in the early ‘80s when it was just a used pedal. 45089852-ECB1-4188-9108-94636EBF2B60.jpeg
    Funny Cat, given to me by bro-in-law when he found it in his basement. It’s not like I can find anything to do what it does, whatever that is.

    Actual cheap pedals. If I’m using an amp with no trem, the Cool Cat does the job. No point selling it. The Bad Monkey I bought when everybody thought they were great, and I still like it even though the internet now tell s me it’s not good anymore. Stays set the way you see it, with very few exceptions. Basically just a boost. If I sold it, I’d have to find something else to replace it, so why? E222A6F8-9591-439D-8A7F-17AF982A5565.jpeg
    Morley Wah/Volume that I picked up at a little music store’s ”basement cleaning” sale for $50.
    26A59732-9ED3-46B6-B8D8-9DC31310412E.jpeg
    Clone Theory I bought the same day as the Bad Stone. $25. It’s noisy, but I drag it out now and then. Again, no point in selling.

    The Clone Theory is definitely noisy but they sure are a nice sounding chorus.
