That was the pedal du jour around here once upon a time.
I had the orange one. I think it just read "Overdrive" on it. Best damn overdrive I ever had.
G&L F-100 Series II >Peavey Overdrive >Peavey Encore. It was a tasty rig, trust me.
The Bad Monkey near me is $50 used, so I think I'll try it out. I'm sure I won't lose money on it.
I've seen Phil-X do some awesome things with one... but, you know, Phil-X.
Is there the usual worship of older versions vs. newer with special mojo in the old ones?
At one time I had a Roland Jet Phaser from the 70's but my ex stole it. also from about 1980 I have a Morely phaser I've never seen another one of those. I almost forgot an EH Screaming Tree-someone gave it to me and I never really use it
Boss CE 1 chorus. It was my first pedal to play with a Fender Rhodes. Still have it.
I had only ever seen one of these and it was hard to find info on at the time. I eventually sold it as it seemed little more than an SD-1 as far as the sound goes - not sure what the circuit is though - it was pretty cool pedal for looks (boosted photo from Reverb, not the one I had)
I think I got it at a garage sale. It's not coveted by anyone and probably not very rare. But of all the pedals I have, this is the one I see most infrequently on Reverb and elsewhere. It's like having a Ford Pinto in perfect condition. Uh, yeah, but it's still just a Pinto.
Nothing too exotic- a mid 80s small box RAT.
Those are very versatile! Great, underrated pedal that does more than metal.
I've got a Colorsound Power Boost. It's a 1990s one but a friend won it from a guitar magazine competition back in the day and it has 'prototype' written in pencil inside.
I don't think they made many of these without the master volume at the time and it's an absolute MONSTER pedal...I've tried it side by side with a boutique clone of the original 18v circuit and that didn't come close. I read somewhere on the internet that it was the last project Dick Denney of Vox worked on before he died, which is pretty cool. Not planning on selling...
Not sure how rare but had this from new mid 70's
This is mine, set for flat response. Any deviation from these settings produces Plex-y goodness.
None of mine are rare, although prices on my Cluster Flux have skyrocketed since Moog discontinued the moogerfooger line of pedals. I can't say it's worth the $700-800 they sell for now, but there's really no other analog modulation pedal that does everything it can do.
This one. EH Queen Triggered Wah, the one in this ad is not mine, but same Vintage and condition.https://reverb.com/item/35832808-vi...en-triggered-wah-envelope-filter-guitar-pedal
Mine's a Digitech WH-1 Whammy, which I was told was the version Digitech used to demo the pedal in the Netherlands.
Closest im ever getting is my BadgerPlex EP3 Preamp pedal
No longer made, even have a spare unobtanium JFET for it
You know how youre always looking for that last 10-15% for your tone, well thats what it does, it soon shows you how its actually more than 15%...
Even a simple open B string (think the dived open B on Wicked Game - this gets you there) sounds like crud without it turned on, which is why you never turn it off...once you turn it on you can never go back
I will never sell it, i might give it away to a friend when its time for me to quit playing, but ill never sell it
I have stuff on my board (1st ive ever had) worth 4/5 times as much, but thats a keeper
Mine would be my PA:CE Automatic Double Tracker. Dirt, modulation, delay; it does it all.
Picked it up for $20 a few years ago. If I had to pare my collection down to a single pedal, this would be it.
IDK if it's that rare, but it's at least no longer being made. I have a Maxon ad-900 that I really like from the 80s.
Just make sure you keep that before your boost in the chain--you know what happens when you hit a Pinto too hard!
