I got to use a Phase 45 back when I was in high school around, I'll guess, 1982 or 83. I remember it being a cool sounding phaser. If I ever head down that road, I think I'd want both a 45 and a 90.
After growing accustomed to the 45, the 90 and 100, to my taste, are too saturated. The 45 has a brighter more subtle sound. Wish Dunlop put a blend or mix pot on them all.

I replaced my original 45 with a script reissue that has Analogman's mod.

I have a Shin-Ei Companion FY-2 fuzz around here somewhere. Late '60s, early '70s. If I re attach the tiny wires inside it will work. One pot has a broken shaft but that can be replaced. Nasty sounding pedal.

Shin-Ei has reproduced it exactly, so they say. Only $349 US, available Nov 29.

My '76 Thomas Organ Crybaby. I got a Big Muff Pi at the same time but that's long gone. My other 2 real old pedals are a '83 SD-1 and an Arion SFL-1 stereo flanger which is pretty awesome.

My first pedal in action

70's Morley Volume Pedal (Abrams Tank)

Can't upload a picture. Now they're all too large. Whatever.

Then an 82-83 Boss Flanger in brand new condition.

Guess oldest is my MRX 10 band graphic eq.... I don't use it anymore but as it goes straight in the wall socked instead of using a battery or powersupply. Guess it is seventies or eighties. Bought it really cheap few years ago, just saw on reverb what they ask for themo_O... Should have an old wah somewhere too no idea how old. Never bought a pedal new.
