    I got my Frogg Compu-Sound at Manny's around '74. Amazing wah tones, the best I've ever used. Also does envelope filter, pedal controlled phaser, and a cool harmonic cascade mode called Arpeggio.

    Advertised as "the first digital pedal" since the programs are called up via a keypad,but the signal path is all analog. Company went under within a couple of years.

    Tramello, by Wrightsounds. Very lush sounding.

    It’s rare, value is up, I hardly use it, so it’s for sale

    Neither is expensive or boutique, but my old Keeley-modded SD-1 and my JHS modded Boss Trem are likely rarer than most $$$/exotic pedals, and each is superlative. I've had a Mutron 3, old Klon, Boss CE-1, and other epic pedals, but the two inexpensive modded ones were the irreplaceable ones. (To be fair, my Klon was replaced with a KTR.)

    I guess ill add a couple more that are fairly uncommon
    5E923048-D28F-47CD-A210-793456148F05.jpeg
    The rat is an early 90’s Big box reissue
    Tube works is a mik version
    Boss parametric eq (it’s great but it’s not easy to use hence why they stops making it)
    Boss super feedbacker & distortion (post lawsuit, the originals said super distortion and feedbacker till dimarzio sued them, I’d like to add one to the collection)
    And
    Ehx electric mistress with the dot missing in “mistress”

    This one is pretty rare, and humongous too.
    Soldano says it’s the exact clipping preamp section of an SLO100.
    Shown next to tube driver for scale.

    The reason I bought it was the direct output. I have actually done gigs with it alone, where we'd play a club and I would just carry a strat, a wah and a bad monkey! :) Lazy I know! But it's an ok tubescreamer type overdrive.. I have 4 or 5 variations and would happily gig with any of them.. although I seem to be running a full cycle back to Boss pedals the last years, I've bought a bunch of them again.. :)

    Not so rare individually, , but I have a complete set of the Digitech Hardwire pedals, all were new to me. Includes the Supernatural reverb, rather than the RV-7. Ht6 polytuner, and the delay and all the drives and mod pedals from the range. As a set, I reckon they are rare!

    Marshall Drivemaster. Same exact circuit as the Marshall Guv'nor (V1) minus the (little-used) effect loop. The Drivemaster is cheaper and less sought after than the Guv'nor.

    edit: And also made in England.

    I have had or played hundreds of tremolo circuits in my time, whether in pedals or amps, and nothing has ever beat the original and elusive O'Face.

    Probably my Nobels ODR-S overdrive special from the mid 90s.
    There’s one one Reverb now for £250 plus shipping. Crazy as it was a fairly cheap pedal back in the day.
