    How about it? Road Worn. Or Closet Classics, or even the Historic Line! A line of pedals complete with chips and scrapes. Painted with nitrose to help let the metal "breathe". Make your pedal sound vintage. Bring out the natural sound of the metal. Crack open the back to reveal some dust or cobwebs. Maybe yellow the white wires up! Blow some cigarette smoke and pour a little beer in there to give it that true Road Worn feeling!

    Before someone starts this line of pedals, add your 2 cents as to what you as the pedal owner wants to see in your new Closet Classic. I want mine with cigarette burns in the paint! Make it look like its seen countless nights in the juke joint! No puke though! Hold the puke!

    Oh yeah! I forgot to add this. The Road Worn Closet Classics will cost double in price!

    weehbo's line also kind of mimics a relic'd pedal. I think they were more after emulating a sort of "bad-ass industrial style" though.

    Haha! Did they charge double the price and claim it would give your tone a more organic sound?

    Well I am sure people were doing this with tube screamers trying to pass them off as originals for a while but then the bottom dropped out of the vintage TS market and killed that. LOL

    Pretty much every early BJFE pedal made.

    Every Wah pedal would have bent jacks from drunk people stepping on them and beer splatter.

    +1 if it actually smells a little like old beer and generic bleach with a tinge of puke.

    Didn't Joakim release a few Himmelstrutz pedals with a "firehouse" finish? Think he threw acid or something on the boxes to make them literally look like they were in a fire...

    I still think that Boss is sitting on an absolute goldmine. It's been my idea for YEARS that they should:

    • reissue ALL the old 2 and 3 knob pedals
    • Call them the SILVER SCREW series, complete with silver screw
    • Use original analog components, etc according to the original Japanese production
    • Give them some road worn paint job
    • TRY to incorporate some sort of new, relay controlled true bypass system to satisfy the boutique world

    Imagine that? The old classics like the CE2, DM2, OD1, etc.
