    What pedal do you most regret selling?

    I can be stubborn when it comes to buying something anew that I regretted selling in the past, but I have conquered a couple of demons in the past few years (I'm talking to you, '80's RAT and '90's Dunlop Rotovibe).

    And I'm thinking about getting another Catlinbread Hyperpak. Never should've gotten rid of my first one.

    I had a Klon before Klon became a thing. After a few months, I sold it because I didn't really care for it. Today, I wish I kept it so I could sell it now and buy a vintage Fender Tweed (or two). :lol:

    Crazy how one pedal can become so valued. My ears just aren't good enough to appreciate a $2000 OD. :D

    I gave away a VS Jekyll & Hyde to one of my bamdmates. Though I'm content with what I have, it's one of the things that I know I'll miss someday. It was a mainstay on my board for a long time. Great pedal.

    Mesa V-Twin. I felt like the Blues setting was too sterile and rough and the lead setting was too over the top. Also, that the tone controls weren't all that flexible and effective. Now I'd like to give it another chance but I sold it long ago.

    My Jetter Gold Standard, and equally or more so, a Mojo Hand Magpie. The Mag was a necessary evil, though. Needed an amp so I sold it to a friend.

    I sold my MI Audio Blues Pro and should have probably kept it. The fuzz switch on it was just the taste that I like and seemed like I could just about live with just that one pedal. I got tired of all of my TS variants and sold them all off in a tirade, but someday, I'll probably miss the BP too much.

    I haven't gotten rid of any yet. I toyed with the idea of selling some that I never use, but I know how I am and I would regret it eventually.

    Excuse me sir, what aisle are the plastic totes on? :lol:

    Gosh...boss dimension C brand new out of the box...TS808 brand new...original Echoplex? This could go on forever, along with the guitars (seafood green strat, late 50s Les Paul Jr) and amps (blond faced and tweeds of all varieties)

    Bought a Century analog chorus back in the 1980's for $20.00 at a music store that was going out of business. I loaned it to a bandmate and never got it back.

    Recently found one on Ebay for $35.00 and bought it. Sweet sounding pedal, it was a knock-off of the Boss CE-2 made by an off-brand company, MN3102 & MN3207 BBD chips in it.

    A couple that I really regret selling / trading
    2nd generation Rams Head Big Muff, that sounded great, I paid $25 for it!
    A Boss DM2 , best sounding analog delay I've ever owned, paid $40.
    Boss Dimension chorus with the push buttons, paid $50 for that one.

    DM-2 - I'm the bandmate that never returned that one (sorry Todd...)

    DC-2 - That one cost me $200 to replace
