    Up until recently I've been all about botique pedals. I've in the past few months acquired a dc-2, and ps-3 and now I'm currently looking into picking up an rv-3 and a dm-2. Some of these older boss units are really blowing me away lately. Just wondering what other units might be worth owning(also on my list currently is a ph-1R).

    So, what do you guys think?

    The CE-1 Chorus ensemble, Da' big one :)

    quite possibly the best chorus pedal on earth, with vibrato :)

    Stock CS-2's are on a lot of pro's boards, including The Edge.

    My recent Boss acquisition although still in production (I think or just over), the LS-2, allows you to run parallel FX in a loop in addition to other functions like loop selection

    I'm going to 2nd or 3rd the old CS-2. I was ready to give up on compressors when I found one of these on eBay for $50 (years ago) and gave it a shot. Man is it so much better than it's successor. The CS-1 is a different animal all together though.
