    I'm not big on selling but I have traded a few. The most notable trade was a DOD Mystic Blues and Danelectro Cool Cat Chorus (the 90's 18v version) for a 1993 Fender Duosonic.

    One I've kept and still use often is a 1987 Peavey Hotfoot Distortion. It's essentially a Rat clone.

    I've downsized significantly for quite some time. However, those couple of pedals stay with me:
    • Analog Man King of Tone
    • Keeley Super Phat Mod
    • Strymon Flint
    • OKKO Dominator
    • Dunlop Fuzz Face - Dallas Arbiter
    I replaced the Polytune with a Peterson StroboStomp this year. And that's just because I can read the Peterson better.

    Wow. I hope your breakup with Lovepedal was congenial. Looks like you had something long term going on.

    My list will start with the ones that’ll stay. I have purchased more gear this year than any year in my life and most of that I haven’t heard yet because I am in Japan on business. I sell very few pedals because they were usually well studied and researched before I bought them. My impulse purchases however dont hold such a good record. Three categories for me are Keepers, Secondary board and Shelf dwellers.

    Keepers for me include:
    Various Rat derivatives
    *Mr. Vermin Chicago Stompworks
    *94’ White Face Reissue
    *Jam Pedals Rattler
    Ethos OD Preamp
    Boss BD-2
    Boss DC-2w
    PlethoraX5 (havent heard it but I am very familiar with TonePrint pedals)
    Moollon Fuzz 14 MkII (SI Fuzz Face)
    Moollon Lotus Octah
    Cali 76’ Compact Deluxe (Ok, havent heard it yet but very confident I’ll like it.)
    Digitec Ventura Vibe

    Secondary Board Worthy:
    Flashback II
    HOF II
    Hyper Gravity Comp
    JHS Angry Charley AT
    BYOB Silver Pony Klone
    J Rockett Blue Note
    Moolon British Octah
    TC Alter Ego x 4
    EHX Pitchfork

    Shelf Dwellers:
    Source Audio Nemesis Delay (impulse)
    Behringer Trem/Pan (impulse)
    TC Mojo Mojo (impulse)
    Nobels ODR-1
    Neunaber Wet II
    TC Viscous Vibe (Impulse)
    Seymour Duncan Shape Shifter Trem
    Fulltone 69’ Fuzz
    Moore Hustle Drive (impulse OCD clone)
    Moore Reverb of some kind (impulse)
    ProCo Rat2
    EB Vol Jr

    Purchased ( good pedals I need to hear):
    Ethos TWE-1
    Pedal Pawn Fuzz
    Xotic EP-Boost
    Boss SD-1
    EB Vol/Tuner Jr

    I was a guitar player, but went back to bass in 2000. I had my fair share of individual pedals and multi-fx too. I don't use effects for bass...but I picked up a Taylor acoustic-electric bass which is decently loud (acoustically) for its mini size. It has a preamp in it but I later discovered that the output from the piezo pickups (one per string, I think) is LOW. I did my homework and learned that I needed a clean boost pedal. Almost got the Spark clean boost but considered building my own, because I have decades of experience fixing amps, pedals etc, however I discovered a pedal that was cheaper than either of those options - Electro-Harmonix Linear Power Boost LPB-1. $54 Canadian bucks shipped, brand new. They still make this thing (for decades) and by the way it works great with the A-E bass.

    This brought back memories... between 2002 and about 2008 I must have bought and sold literally hundreds of effects. It was an ebay habit/hobby and I was buying at least one a week sometimes 4 or 5. My band had finished and I guess I was just looking for something to keep me interested in the guitar.

    Eventually I kind of burned myself out, I only own half a dozen now, no board and never use more than 2 or 3, often just 1.

    Eq at home is key. I can really dial things in. I have a lot to learn. One day I hope to be able to be able get it all figured out. Probably will never happen. I'm just getting started playing electric guitar after playing acoustic for 30 years. I own a handful of pedals and have found the Eq to be very useful and versital. Dig it a lot.

    Wow, that is a list. I'm afraid to list all of the pedals that have come and gone.
    I have two pedals that I got rid of and regretted it enough to buy them again: The Xotic BB Pre and the JHS @

    Ha! Well I tried to like Lovepedal, but there are very few that I really actually liked. In the end, I'm not crazy about that company, but some others are.

    I don’t really sell pedals. I have in the past but I’d rather keep them. I like to mix and match. The only ones I have on the block are a source Audio Orbital Modulator(Not my thing) and a Mooer E7 Synth(don’t bother).

    That happens. Sometimes the overall tonal preferences of a company just don’t jive with me.
