Show us your pedals

Post by john » Sun Sep 21, 2008 10:19 pm

I just realized there is not a thread to show off your pedals in ...like in basses and amps.
I'm sure some of you have got some goddies we can ogle!
mine are pretty lame but just getting the ball rolling... :wink:

It's A lot easier that way in'it .
I never used to then I started and got a few . Then got sick of them and stopped completely . And now I'm back into using them . Depends on the style of music too I guess

Here's my collection...
An Arion HU-8500 Stage Tuner...have had it for around 15 yrs and love it! 8)
Has two sep outputs. One kills the sound when in tuning mode, the other doesn't.
Efficient on batteries, easy to use and tunes well.
I have a zoom multi as well... but I never use it apart from the built-in drum machine.

That fuzz/wah pedal you have there John is probably worth a bit of money - that was my first effect pedal and i bought it - wait-for-it - in 1973 - i recently saw one in a notorious instument store and they were asking (bad memory) about $500 - its a goody with a bit of crc (or is it WD40 you use on pots? - yes a real vintage piece.

Really?, you can have it for $499 :D
Seriously though that's a surprise , mine is a bit rough around the edges. So I don't think it would fetch that much.
Your thinking of electrical spray . I changed the pot in mine recently so it's all good .

Steve, I fear the rumors around entry into the Wellington Bass Players Hall of Fame may in fact be true.

Sweet!
I like how you got the stiegnberger in the shot :D

You seem to be a boss man.
How is the limiter? Been thinking of getting a limiter or compressor , well thinking of making an orange squeezer( cos it's simple )
The board looks good too. did you convert something ?
