    I guess the title says it all. My guess is that my super hot wife, who's sitting right beside me, will likely give me a monetary limit (i.e. $100 or so) and say something like "love of my life, what would you like me to get you for your birthday this year? You can have some money and spend it on whatever you like...etc."

    What should I get though? I've got a: Keeley Rat, Bodenhammer TS9 DX, Mutron II Phasor, Line 6 MM4, BYOC Delay, Dod EQ, and Crybaby wah.

    What's missing from this picture?

    Get something used at a discount. Maybe a RMC Wah? Could be a nice upgrade.

    Can Timmy's be found for under $100?

    What about the Boss OD3 or SD1?

    Or whatever.

    It is clear that she's sitting next to you. The way you worded the whole post gave that away.

    Ask for forgiveness for all of the pedal-purchasing guilt you have had, for now, and for the future. Think how wonderful that would be!

    My birthday was yesterday, I didn't want to take a chance so I bought myself a Fulltone Clyde Deluxe Wah for my Birthday.

    To the OP, at least you're talking with her about it, not sneaking gear into the house like many here have admitted to.

    the timmy WAS 105, but is now 129ish i think.

    the boss od3 is under 60 used. awesome pedal.

    I wonder if the OD3 is cooler than M Audio's new Multi wave distortion pedal.

    My first thought was a bypass-looper maybe? http://www.tonefactor.com/proddetail.php?prod=FourChannelLooper

    'course you'll need some cables ($), too... :eek:

    Or if you don't already have a tuner maybe a Korg Pitchblack! :)

    Have a Happy Birthday whatever you get!

    Good idea about the compressor- I've heard good things about BYOC's Ross clone too. That's worth checking out.
