    Hey guys.
    Being that we have to step on all out pedals and FX, and most of us don't play barefooted they're bound to get ugly. Let's see some pics of all your battered and bruised gear! :) Where's all those old TS9's and Wah wahs that look like they've been to hell and back? I've been looking through the pedal board thread, and I can't understand why everybody elses pedals can look so spotless while mine get's beat even when sitting on the shelf not being used.:confused: :BEER

    I don't really use the Sansamp much anymore, but I've had both pedals since '93. I recently started using the DD-3 again. I'd forgotten how great it sounded.

    EDIT: I just opened the old Japanese DD-3 to check for this "big" chip mentioned in a different thread (I couldn't tell if it had it or not). What I did find was a spider's nest.

    Here's how to tell by just looking at the back of the board. You can just take the back cover off.

    Here is my tried and true EH Small Stone - purchased it new around '74. Still my all time fav.
    If anyone knows where to get a knob for it, that would be cool....

    Thanks, mine is that very first version. I am always disappointed with other delays, for some reason this one sounds very good to me. Better yet, a friend gave it to me all those years ago!

    I like the way that the word distortion is very distorted. Something almost poetic about that.

    Nice, I bet it sounds all warm and fuzzy.

    I should start a pedal relicing business. What's the point of having a Nash strat if your pedals are all nice and shiny???
