    Finally, light is acceptable this afternoon (it's even sunny springy :) ) and I found time to get a few pictures.

    I cannot feel other than their looks sucks. I'd seen so many of them close to DX7 and other crap in stores back in the 80s. I can understand that they may look vintage and cool to younger ones, but I don't like their looks.

    I hear ya....definitely magenta but it kinda suits its effect. Spendy little peddles. Paid $200 per n didn’t think twice about it. Modded one to take the 9v supply.
    Good added sparkle with this Delay, clear n spanky bit of boost also.. good Billy analog slap back..

    Not a matter of color.
    Rather their shape, which looks pretty 80s techno, crap compared to "beautiful" / even DIY-like oldie pedals.
    Also reminds me of the kind of music that actually got airplays back in the times. There were real good bands, but that's not what you could hear on the radio or at the supermarket. Terrible period :(

    The true music of the Times was never or hardly ever played on air, other than on iconic DJ’s shows like LA’s Rodney Bingenheimer’s Rodney on the Rock...or the Sex Pistol’s Steve Jones-lunch hour both now gone the way of the Dodo bird...

    These "couples" can be related in many different ways, right??
    How about color scheme?? These 3 are unrelated otherwise but I love the look of all three... 5 Gretsch G2622 Streamliner Walnut Stain.jpg 6 G&L ASAT Tribute Special Irish Ale.jpg Squier Standard Tele 1.jpg

    File this couple under doublecut, red rockers w/ wide nuts ;) It's pretty crazy how similar these ones feel to me & they each own the trashy crunchy stuff w/ their own great twist on the same general sonic attitude:
