    Get the Clean II as well. I have had all three and that has been my favorites. It has the greatest versatility for overdrive. I also had the Clean Fusion with HRM, but found the HRM always had an "active sound" to it and the fusion was too over the top.

    I paid market price for my AM KOT v4 and original run AM Sunlion about 8+ years ago or so. Both were well worth the price of admission and are two of my favorite pedals for sure. Can't remember what the most expensive new pedal I purchased was.

    The Piercing Moose, Original Green Rhino and Screaming Beaver were my favorites of his original line. The gain on the Screaming Beaver was notched and had an amazing sound. Surprised he never released that in a series. As for "had", tastes change. My oldest pedal that I've had now is my Toneczar Openhaus. Built like a tank and sounds like an amp.

    Where did you find that? Never seen one of those. Sounds cool. Love the old Genesis tunes.

    Gigrig G2 would be my most expensive box, but it is probably cheaper per square foot than my Cornish P-1 or G-2.

    I have a vintage DMM. Rest of my stuff is basic stuff you could get from any music store.

    The most I’ve ever paid for a pedal is $450 for a Spaceman Mercury IV. In retrospect, having experimented with it for a few weeks, I would have paid $150 max. Fortunately I was able to sell it on for zero loss.

    After that, it’s a toss-up between a Chase Bliss Spectre (solid it; very noisy) and a few D*A*M fuzz pedals.

    VFE custom/refurb, $300, but considering it’s actually 3 pedals was only $100 a pedal.

    That last setting that starts at the 1:56 mark sounds amazing.

    I purchased a new Hughes and Kettner Replex many years ago and paid around $600.

    I had an original Univox Super Fuzz years ago. Sorry I sold it ! My first ever Fuzz box, and it sounded horrible through my first amp ever, a SS piece of garbage. I think I got $20 for the Univox. What a mistake selling that was ! Seen them going for as high as $750 ON EBAY...

    I'm fairly sure it would sound cool through one of my vintage amps now, as an over-the-top fuzz, dang !

    I set myself to an average +300€ for each pedal I have (el cap, flint, the duellist, vibe machine, Unit67, RMC10).

    Original Triangle Big Muff - $550.

    It's since been sold but it was a great sounding pedal.

    I paid around the same for 2 different Mu-tron BiPhase units some years back. Wish I had one of them back.
