Hehe, I know but I had to ask.
Doing just fine. Hope the desert is treating you both well.
I had a 70s script logo MXR Dist+ that I sold for some idiotic reason which I can't justify today. I guess the rarest pedal I own today is my Reverend Drivetrain II which you don't see too much these days.
Boss DS-1 Distortion. One of less than 7 million ever produced. This particular piece is an ultra rare “Turny-Knob” version — later knobs turned, but they didn’t go turny-turny like these. An eBay search would turn up fewer than 400 listings. You’d be lucky to find one for less than $15. This unit was originally owned by Scott. Who is Scott? I don’t know. Nobody does. This rarity is shrouded in mystery.
Spiral Silverburst (edition of 10, I think?)
(I've got a handful of other limited pedals but they're all pretty random)
We're good on our end, so far. Thanks for the kind words.
I feel you, I sold an original marshall bluesbreaker for some idiotic reason.
I went to see Chris’ then-band, the Headless Horsemen, all the time! He told me about the Ludwig when I was chatting with him after a gig, and said I should come in and try it. Totally freaky. And you could never ever get it to do the same thing twice.
My old Brooklyn housemate John Culhane said, after playing through the Phase II, “Man, you don’t play this thing. This thing plays YOU.”

Don't know what I'll do if this ever goes. Bought it new in '95. Have used it regularly since.

BJFe Purple Humper #42 out of... well, probably under 50 still.
Acid Tone Buzz Face - was built as a backup for a one off pedal that later got liquidated on ebay.
I used to have a bunch of Spaceman pedals but I just got bored with them after a while. I'm still big on BJFe stuff though and it's all pretty low volume.
I have one of these, sort of rare.
I built clones of the Lovetone ring stinger and Flange? With No Name, and the DBA Flaming Lips Space ring (Dead EndFX has a ton of very rare, weird and complex effects PCBs for sale).
love Randy Jacobs, great player, we worked on multiple projects with him, rhythm ace, we were talking fondly about him just a a couple of months ago
Roger Mayer Metalloid OD must be rare since no one ever talks about it. It's fairly unique with parallel OD processing of treble and bass OD and three outputs (choose either HW bypass out or 2 buffered). Great for multi-amp set ups and as a boosty buffered drive at the head of a long, complicated signal chain. It warms up and 'loudens' a solid state amp and clips gainy tube amps. I guess that sounds Metal on a JCM type amp. Got it for about $150 a long time ago. Rear-panel jacks are very close together and it eats batteries in two days if the input jack is occupied and totally shuts down on low voltage, so it's not a simple or traditional OD. I can't find any technical discussion of its function.
No idea how rare this is. It’s an “Aquarius Fuzz” by Anonymous Pedal Creations. I think I paid $45 for it just as a “why the hell not” purchase. It sounds pretty incredible, and try as I might, it hasn’t been bested by some that are far more expensive.
"Worth" is subjective. You don't actually Joe Gore stuff?
2 chip AD-900 not too rare, but my rarest
I guess this is kind of rare due to its age. 1978 MXR Phase 100 - bought it new, and it looks almost as new as when I got it!

Maybe a little more unique than rare; 1995 BD-2 that I had sent to Keeley in the early 2000's for his phat mod. Got it back and was playing it one night and it started to sound really good....then the battery died. I called Robert and told him how great it sounded just before the battery died. He said to send it back he had an idea......he sent it back with a 3 way switch added that goes from full power to 2/3 power to 1/3 power....I have never seen another one like it!
