My favorite old quote:
“What the heck did that guy do for a living to be able to afford that house and pay for that trip with all those kids?”
I think the same thing when I see some Mormon families.
Holy crap... 8 to 15 kids? I used to have trouble feeding one!
Like Al Bundy selling shoes, with a nice suburban house, two kids, and stay-at-home wife.

Checked out Brian May Red Special pedals on Reverb not so long ago. UK price, used, over £400. Stopped looking.

Edit: checked again just now. Cheapest is £360 with replacement power unit. Others over £550. Stopped looking again.

Most of the pedals on my board were under $75*





*I built the board in 1980
My pedal collection started in 2015 or so. Most are between $30 to $105 US but some were quite pricey. The Supro Tremolo was $235 US and I have a Montreal made pre-amp pedal that cost me about $150. That one got the builder a cease and desist letter from Roland because of the graphics and overall external design.

I had a DanElectro Tuna Melt tremolo... it failed.
Got JOYO; it's "ok".
Not terribly Fender® deep.

None I really need; would like a compressor, but know I wouldn't use it.
A good wah would be nice, would over use that.

Phase shifter like MXR would be good; but it's so antiquated, that phase sound.

I'm not even going to add up what I've spent on pedals in the last few years.
I think I've got 4 Fulltone devices, a couple of MXR, and a half dozen Boss.
Been eyeballing the new Roland Space Echo.....

And it's funny, because for the last 10 years, 90% of my playing has been straight into the amp with a little grit and a little reverb.

I believe I have three dozen pedals. Because individually, they're cheaper than guitars and amps :laugh2:
And yes, when I do decide to pick up a guitar, it's usually plugged directly into an amp.

I bought a Tuna Melt before I moved away. I have an MXR Phase 95 that has two flavors of phase. I have the wah, compressor, hell, I have at least one pedal of every type. Waiting for delivery of the vibrato pedal. A Leslie can be approximated by linking a tremolo and phase, sorta.

Always go straight into the baby Marshall - the red channel is really sweet. Use a Joyo Metalhead with the THR because its high gain setting is a bit too polite for my liking.
I put a lower gain tube (12AT7 or 12AU7?) in V1 of my DSL1HR to tame the fizz in the red channel.
