    I have the original (Orange) Twosome, but was dissatisfied since you couldn't have both on at once and couldn't switch the order. The Seriously Special (which I also have) allows both on at the same time and order switching....

    The following info was related to me by @Guitar Josh , who I bought it from. I have one of three LoveKraft DeathStar OD pedals. It's a TS808 based OD (Mojo Drive), dual gain with a boost, and a rotary knob with 8 different clipping diodes to choose from. I'll never sell it. I do wish I had a listing of the diode types. Someday, I'll pick it apart and see what I can determine. Supposedly, this was Ethan's personal one. The box is marked 1 of 3. I tripped accross Josh's listing when I was hunting a Mojo Drive (which I had one of, then sold and later kicked myself for selling). My understanding is that the Mojo Drive was loosly based on the Landgraff LDO, which was all the rage here on TGP back in 2007 when I started lurking here.

    I'm still looking for a LoveKraft Crawling Kingsnake, which was Ethan's take on a Marshall Bluesbreaker. I've been told this should fall into JHS Morning Glory territory.

    Yeah, I love stacking the two! I often use the Fix’d side first, using it as a filter and then hitting the Blunderbuss. There are so many tones to be found from this pedal.

    I didn’t know about the regular model not having these options, good to know!

    I have a rare Chase Bliss Thermae from the limited run of 10 that they did for a store in Bath, England when it was released. It has a different colour scheme, which you can see from the following link:

    Chase Bliss Audio Thermae Limited Edition
    https://reverb.com/item/14167008-ch...are&utm_campaign=listing&utm_content=14167008

    As if this pedal wasn’t complicated enough already, mine has an enclosure from a prototype run that were printed a little bit differently so it says “normal” instead of “modulation” on the dip switch and is called a “Harmonizer” on the top instead of a “pitch shifter”!

    I messaged them when I bought this and Joel very decently replied to me directly to say there were only around five like this and that it is a very rare pedal I have.

    I’ve got a 1/10 ZVEX Purple Sparkle Fuzz Factory from that old one off era, but there were tons of small batches, and color is a lame way to say something is rare.

    FoxRox Captain Coconut 2 is actually decently rare.

    Prophecysound Infinitphase mkII really is rare. 23/30 I think.

    super cool! I remember they had a problem with eventide because of the word harmonizer, that was the original one. I might changes the knobs to blue, looks cool!

    Acid Fuzz Zoink Machine Zonk machine copy. Used by Doyle Brammhal 2 and super rare. I waited 2 years for that one. I also had one of 2 Quinnamp Mantis fuzz pedals. He changed the name to Prophet after a legal TM came up.

    Original Vintage Technology BFD Tremolo (15V)pedal. Greatest Fender type Tremolo pedal ever.
    I also have the BFD built by BadCat, it's not close to the old unit with the 15V battery,

    I've had a few that I've sold for pretty decent sums (Digitech Space Station, Spaceman Aphelion), but a few others I haven't been able to part with (Silver Klon, super early EHX Micro Synth that might even be a prototype, a couple White Dot NKT275 Sun Faces).

    I think the rarest by far though is a Schumann Lion I bought from Main Drag in Brooklyn, probably around 2004 or 05. The only other one I've ever seen for sale is a super crusty one that sold years ago on Reverb. Mine's in excellent condition... I fantasize about selling it all the time but dunno if I'll ever be able to pull the trigger haha.

    I have those too, Platypus #022 & Green Rhino #082. I have maybe another 10-12 originals from Jeorge too. Heard of a WH Pig Foot?

    Technically the custom sustain pedal I had made for me because it's a one of a kind thing. But, other than that...

    I'm a DOD/Digitech junky. Have been since the 80's. And I have a number of oddballs from them in my collection. FX15 Swell, FX45 Stereo Reverb, and the 650 Mini-Amp would probably be my top 3.

    SIB varidrive overdrive pedal. Runs off a 12ax7 tube. Its like adding another stage to your amp. Best overdrive I could find. Have a regular varidrive and a dual channel varidrive. The dual channel is the only one in existence. It is the prototype and was made just before they closed up shop . they are back now. Everything they make is top quality. Couldn't figure how to put a picture of them on here off my drive.

    I have a pretty old wah-wah, a predecessor to the cry-baby that was made by Thomas Organ before Dunlop took over. Also, I have a Maestro Phaser from the same era....a few years ago, I took them to my local genius amp/pedal tech and had both brought up to original condition. the phaser was very difficult to find the wiring diagram, but we found it on line. Both work and sound great, but I don't think they are too rare?
