    I'll start. About 15 years ago, I owned a big box DMM, a Marshall Shredmaster, and an 80's Rat. I think I sold the DMM for $200, the Shredmaster for $50. If only I'd known he future...

    Analogman SunFace NKT 275.

    I remember paying a little under $200 about 8 or 9 years ago, used. Not used Klon territory, but still silly money to me. I did like it though.

    Ibanez TS-808.

    Bought it in 1987 for $35, sold it in 1995 for $100 and thought I was getting a good deal. :facepalm

    Several Ibanez TS-10 pedals. Bought and sold for $40-$50 each.

    Univox Superfuzz. Bought it for $15, traded it off a few months later.

    I was given an original Univibe in perfect working condition. I sold it and used the money to pay for most of a Cunetto Relic.

    I had no idea the Tim was selling for so much. I have one I never use. Hmmm...

    Too many to count. I sold a Slow Gear mint in box for around $100. I sold countless TS-10s for around $50. I must have repeatedly sold Shredmaster, Drivemaster, and Bluesbreaker pedals for around $40-$50 each. It depresses me to think of others.

    Same here...had a '90s reissue big box DMM with the MN3005 chips...decided it was too much of a hassle to get it Analogman modded so I sold it for a little more than the $200 I paid for it. I regret it often.

    I don't know if I consider a $100-200 price difference big money. At the time, selling my pedals was probably worth more to me than that. I would consider 3x-6x times selling price like a univibe or Klon to be big money.

    Former bassist sold his 60's Vox AC30 super twin head/speaker and Unixox Superfuzz for a sh*t drug habit. :Devil

    Someone spilled beer on my 70's Memory Man years ago. Toast. :FM

    Not a pedal, but I sold my backup RE-201 for $200.00 in the 90's.

    I sold my CE-1 for maybe $75.

    Grey Ross Compressor. I'm still not sure why I sold it. I guess I was going through a no compressor period.
