I hesitate before posting this as there are some really entertaining threads going, but what's the oldest pedal you have, working or not?

I'll set the bar low by starting with my custom DoD 270 A-B switch pedal from the 70's... someone added led lights, which is great except for the huge noise the leds introduce... :/

Tough call between my original Morely WVO and Electric Mistress.
I got the EM used some time in the mid 80s, not sure how old it was when I got it (and I'm honestly not even sure where it is or if it made it through our move in '94)
I got the Morely WVO new in '78 or '79, and a DOD Chorus.

I have four vintage pedals. The three oldest are the DOD FX65 Stereo Chorus, Ibanez AD Delay and Ibanez BPL Phaser. I’ve had these since the early’90’s. The other oldie is an Ibanez GE10 eq pedal.

I'm not sure which is THE oldest, but I have a Roland Jet Phaser and a Systech Phaser. From what I could find, both seem to have appeared around 1974 or soon after. But, probably older is my Univox Super Fuzz; no idea what year mine is but some research points towards them coming into production in 1968. The Memory Man is also quite old (70's); Howard Davis (EHX engineer) modified it for me so it can take a line level signal in an effects loop. You can see all four in the picture below' the herd has grown signiccantly since this phot was taken. :O

A few... 1965 Maestro(Gibson) FZ-1A "Fuzz-Tone, 1968 Vox Tone Bender in cast grey ali housing, a couple of Vox Treble/Bass Boosters in the plug-in black plastic box and also a Repeat Percussion from the same era. & a Jordon BossTone from 1967.

My Maestro MFZ-1. Mid-70's vintage. It has been my #1 pedal since the early 90's.



The cool thing is how we can get killer vintage clones like it is nothing, now.

@Alligatorbling built Colorsound One-knob Fuzz in the blue box. I have a Colorsound Overdriver clone, too, and another 'Bling built Rangemaster Treble Booster clone.

Next pedal will be a Super Fuzz clone of some type.

I have a Boss OD-1 from the early eighties (?) and a Boss DD-3 from the late 80’s (?)...

The DD-3 was always and is still on my board

I’ve got a mid 80’s Boss DD-3. It doesn’t work but I’ve got it.

On a side note, anyone wanna buy a mid 80’s Boss DD-3 that doesn’t work?
