    I have a CS-2, a CE-2, and a DM-2 from the '80s. I did have have a PH-1r, but my ex escaped with that somehow. Not that great of a pedal anyway, low headroom. I still use the CS-2 on my board to this day.

    The Bad Stone and the Funny Cat are still in play. The Morley Wah/Volume occasionally. The Clone Theory... well, I guess chorus isn’t really a thing for me anymore...

    I used to have one of those! When I was a kid I took the guts (one transistor and a couple of resistors!) out of it and transplanted them into another case, then another one... the electronic bits are still in my garage, might try to make it work again one day: but the case is long gone.

The MXR Distortion + was the first effects pedal I ever bought ($25 used circa ‘85/‘86). I bought the 2 Maestro pedals from a coworker in the early ‘90’s for $15. The fuzz doesn’t work but the Mini Phase does and, although it has some tone suck, I always liked the Gilmore-ish “Any Colour You Like” sound it can get.

    My first effect! Used it to push my 70s Princeton into crunch mode.

    Fuzz Faces : Cornell (grey), Dunlop (red and black). Well, not really vintage except the Cornell that I rebuilt with vintage NOS selected correct parts (specs and look). All are gone now.

    1987 Peavey Hotfoot Distortion. Essentially a LM308 based Rat clone with a buffer and a non-reversed tone (aka presence) knob.

    Yow. I'm the outlier here, that's for sure. I purchased, and then gradually sold, some pretty classic vintage pedals: Mu-Tron 3, Boss Chorus Ensemble 1 (the original, big one), various first-issue Way Huge pedals, Klon (yep), among others. Because I play and do not collect or invest, I eventually replaced all of these with more current versions, like the 3-Leaf Proton, KTR, etc. I made a load on the sales, and in all honestly, find the newer makes to be every bit as good sonically, and in most cases, much easier and more reliable to work with. The Proton is, IMO, significantly better than the Mu-Tron; the others are all terrific equivalents for the originals, IMO. I A/B'd the Centaur and KTR before selling the Centaur, and in my rig there was no significant difference to me. A Sun Face is great for me. I love the old stuff, but when it comes to pedals, I just don't do that anymore.

    Original Clark Gainster, Michael told me it's one of the first 10 or 20 he made....hand signed on the interior....it's a great overdrive, imho, the equal to my original Klon....
