I love gear that sounds great and doesn't break the bank. That said, I own a couple of Strymon pedals, both of which were birthday presents from family members (a couple of years apart). So, they were free to me, and awesome gifts. All my other pedals with the exception of the analog delay and my tuner and my Pedal Power were purchased off Craigslist used at around half price. That would be another fun thread...…..:"show us your Craigslist/Ebay/Reverb etc. scrounged pedal board."
