    For me,it was an early '80s Nady Tube Overdrive (12AX7).
    Sounded like a rhino vomitting through every amp EXCEPT my '59 Bassman......that was a perfect match,incredible touch sensitivity and complexity across the entire tonal range!:shock:
    Of course,I sold it to a fellow picker for $50,then I heard the old recordings.:slap:
    How about you?

    1970's Electro Harmonix Small Stone Phase Shifter. Wished I'd kept that one. I think that was the first pedal I ever purchased... Gibsonblues... :)

    My brother has one of those old Nady tube overdrive pedals. It sounds like crap thru some amps, but thru others it sounds decent.

    I sold a ton of old Electro Harmonix pedals to a pedal dealer a few years back. Probably should have kept them all, even though they are built like a chinese motorcycle and break if you look at them funny.

    I had doubles and triples of the 808-style and 9 series Ibanez pedals, now they are worth a lot too. Some of those at the time I sold them were very underrated like the AD9, now everybody wants them.

    Had one of those ancient DeArmond tremelo units like Billy Gibbons uses. It had a little motor inside and shook this little bottle of mystery fluid around for the trem effect. Crazy shit. Some pedal dealer wanted it worse than I did, so I sold it. Never seen another one since.

    Nowdays I just keep any vintage pedal I buy.

    When I was going to college in Boston I used to spend a lot of free time hanging at the "original" Wurlitzers on Bedford St. in Boston being a PITA. I was hanging there when the first shipment of original Vox wah's came in and managed to pick up the 1st one out the door for a "poor college kid discount" price. Years later I gave it away to a keyboard friend who converted it into a volume pedal! :( Also had a cool Premier reverb unit that used to sit on top of my Marshall for years..I have no clue what happened to that one; it disappeared when I bought a Twin reverb...but I sure wish I had it now.

    I've got one of these (original owner on top of that) and still use it every time I have a gig.

    The pedal I miss the most is a A/DA Flanger. No flanger in my opinion comes close to this vintage pedal.

    Vox was mine too, I traded it in late 70's for a HSC man it's probably worth about 300.00 now, ahhhh live and learn, but I did love the wah on it, IMO better than the crybaby

    i think this is going to sound wierd but the pedal i regretted letting go was a japan made Boss DD3.

    I couldn't get it to sound right no matter how i tweaked the knobs. Until the guy i sold it to taught me how to use it. You got to use it with a tube amp to get the realistic reverb sound. And you can't get the same efx with the current MIT DD3 cos the chip and parts are different...

    and i could have sold it for much more $$$ :( ouch.
