    I don't think it's that rare, but probably this:

    I've probably got several that you don't see often, but were originally mass-produced. I don't count limited editions of an existing pedal or special paint job versions.

    There were only 25 made of this, so it's probably the most rare.

    That pedal really makes me think someone has to source some old telephones with a rotary dial, and make it an art project multi-effect pedal where you dial the number of the effect you want, or 0 for bypass.

    I like it!

    Would you wear shoes with a special attachment or go barefoot and wiggle a toe into the dial?

    I have a first-gen ProCo Rat. I got it off a pop metal lead guitarist in the Bay Area that my friend sang with. He was always going through new pedals. I got it in maybe late ‘80 or early ‘81 for $20. Only thing done was a switch was installed so you could leave it plugged in and it wouldn’t drain the battery ;)

    I have no clue how to post photos but here is a link to a pic I found for a listing on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/i/323778409106...MIj5iYp5LB6QIVBNvACh16igRCEAQYBCABEgKmD_D_BwE

    Jeez! These things go for over a grand now?!? Hmm, I’d been considering selling it.

    Not certain.
    Might be one of my PTD pedals.
    (original version Kush OD, or the Tornita fuzz-thing)
    Or, the Keeley/George Lynch “Time Machine Boost: Mr.Scary” version.
    :dunno

    don’t think more than a few dozen have been made. Total impulse buy when I saw this online. Randomly got one in the first batch. Super fun delay.
