Ibanez
7. Tube Screamer TS-10
8. Tube Screamer TS-9 Keeley Modded
9.Analog Delay AD-9 Keeley Modded (80's )

Pearl
10. Overdrive OD-05
11. Chorus Ch-02

Misc. Pedals

13. Menatone Dirty Blonde (early version)
14. Earthquake Tone Job
15. Amalgam Smooth Overdrive
16. Bruce Bennett Brown Sound (1st version)

I’ve got a bbe tunbescreamer style pedal I haven’t turned on for more than a minute or two in years. It’s not a fancy high end unit, but it isn’t bad either.

I got it to push my vibrochamp when I lived in an apartment and it did that pretty ok. I got another amp with better built in OD and then another and somewhere down the line it just ended up on the shelf. :dunno:

I have an island of misfit toys in my studio. I really need to sell them off, but have been too lazy to deal with shipping. Pile includes a Boss Metal Zone, TC Electronic chorus, Boss looper pedal, ProCo RAT, and some other things I can't recall. I also have a 5 knob Tube Driver that gets used for recording now and then, so that one won't get sold...

I have a Mtcrovibe and an original Marshall Guv'nor that have been collecting dust. But then again, I was never a pedal guy anyway.

Timely thread! I'm just re-doing my pedalboard (an explosion of cables, connectors and soldering tools all over my bench right now)

These two must go.

P1080285.jpg







The Dunlop Rotovibe....bought it for one recording session in the mid 90s. Used it that one day and never touched it again.
The Boss GE-7 graphic EQ. Too clean and characterless (which some people would likely prefer) I have the GE-6....it's predecessor....bought it around 1980. It's dirty, noisy, rough, impolite....and I love it!

Holy jumpin catfish!

First I'll apologize to Lefty for being flippant and changing my mind about selling the GE-7.
I was about to sell it so I looked up what it might be worth. But I ran across descriptions of mods people have done to this thing so I decided to keep the pedal and try the mods.


Just finished performing all the mods. Swapped out the ICs, tantalum and electro caps for films and while I was there I modded the ACA to PSA power spec. (yes, I had all parts in inventory)

This thing sounds like a completely different pedal....like a veil has been lifted

After all these years i have resurrected my TS10(on TB's list) and am loving it.Original issue made in japan.Especially nice with a Fender guitar when you jockey the guitars volume up and down, the way i use it.
I leave it on all the time.
Nice light drive characteristics,and i like the way the notes interact with each other when i do this.musical.

I've sold all of mine that I hadn't been using. A Keeley Blues Driver, two versions of MJM London Fuzz (great pedals, those), Colorsound Overdriver, TS9, Phase 90 and Small Stone phasers, Budda Wah, Bogner Red and Blue Ecstasy mini, Carl Martin Plexi Drive, Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret, Xotic BB Preamp, Ibanez Flanger, Megalith Delta, and plenty more. I've gotten rid of almost all of my dirt pedals since going Mesa.

I have an Analogman Germanium Fuzz that I never use, and a Wampler Compressor. Also a Snouse Black Box... I'm sure that there are more that I should just sell.

I'll buy the CE-2, send me a PM.

I'm considering an Ibanez Weeping Demon wah after watching this video (some really cool playing at the beginning and end):


I may actually like the way it works. Otherwise I've played guitar for decades and just done without a wah pedal.

Since getting a Fender 5W Vibro Champ (switch down to 1.25W) and a Marshall 1W (switch down to 0.1W) in 2013, my JAM Pedals TubeDreamer88 OD pedal has been in it's box!

Hi I’m Wuuthrad and I’m a distortion pedal addict.

I’ve got more than I can use at once, but I like to chain them the right way, using them as intended, and I also like to stack them in wrongly and mess about a bit.

Fuzz, distortion, gain, you name it!

Hey Freddy,

Are you considering using Mogami 3368 cable and plugs of your choice for your new setup?

A guy on Reverb sells it @ $2.20 a foot. Probably lower in bulk. Says in 10' lengths, but I bet you can get longer if you message him.

Might be a not too crazy expense for improvement?

Nah...I've got a secret weapon cable. Shhhh...Belden 8218, 75 ohm coax video cable.
THE best, lowest capacitance cable around. I use it for all pedalboard and rig connections (pedalboard to amp and back). The only thing I don't use it for is the main lead going from my guitar to the pedalboard because it has a higher than desirable handling noise and also it's not as soft and pliable/memory-less as a good commercially marketed guitar cable. But in a static situation (where I'm not moving the cable around) it's perfectly quiet.

Thanks for the Gumball Mickey!

I respect decisions based on practical reality AND performance.

Perfect balance.

Bless me OP, for I have sinned...

I bought 4 Two Rock’s and 2 other amps built by Bill Krinard (I know I have a problem), I haven’t touched any of my dirt pedals. Delay in the effects loop interface and I’m happy.

Now to have a tag sell for all these pedals...
