    Nothing too exciting but my wife and I were painting and remodeling the bedroom and ended up finding these in a cardbox box full of old TV cables, ISDN modems and an old tin of Altoids of all things. Looking forward to trying them out this weekend. Images pirated from teh innerwebs as I'm at work.

    I don't know how old they are but I do know that the box hasn't been opened in at least 20 years.

    Very cool! The Mutron stuff is really great sounding.

    I was just thinking that. Last time I was in the crawl space all I came up with was a couple of mouse skeletons. Sure love to find a DMM and MuTron down there but it ain't gonna happen.

    Really, really cool- You'll get ONE TON of psychedelic 60's sounds out of those three pedals, "stacked".

    I picked up a reissue Memory Man as soon as they came out in the early 90s, but mine came w/a hard-wired AC cord (unlike the current production DMM, which comes with it's own power supply) - so I was under the assumption that the old ones were were also AC.

    Can't see a cord in the pic. Is this one wall-wart powered? If so, I hope it's somewhere in that box of modems!

    That Mutron Phaser sounds great. When I saw Birds of Avalon, one of their guitarists were using it and it is the very definition of analog.

    LOL at stacking all those! Set phasers on Stun, Sulu!

    I just got home and took a crappy iPhone pic of the actual haul. I forgot about the Boss one. They're all pretty grungy, I'll have to clean them up. The MM is indeed corded.

    The Ibanez, on account of the logo, dates to the mid 70's. That was their logo back in the lawsuit days. Very cool haul! Some guys have all the luck. All I found in my attic was a couple birds and their huge nest they had been building.

    Awesome haul. I'd be overjoyed at the Memory Man to say the least.
