    I would trade 1 choice for a mythical volume pedal that doesn't suck tone.

    Sorry, I can’t hear you. There seems to be an echo here. :)

    Reverb is excellent. I've had stuff languish on Kijiji for a three weeks that gets snapped up within a few days of being posted on Reverb.

    Check out the Strymon Deco for that kind of chorus.

    I should probably give Reverb a whirl. How do you handle shipping? Have you found there to be an average cost for shipping a pedal or two?

    I don't want anything new.
    I'm downsizing and have 8 pedals for sale cheap in Buy, sell section :)

    1. EHX B9 - concerned though, does it still drone if you use an isolated power supply ? I would hate to have it on board and have to run its own power supply
    2. JAM pedal Rattler, Rat clone..To fill a tonal niche that I don’t currently have, but again I don’t think I really need it..and while I have a Ubangi stomp that I mainly use in its intended low gain application I suspect that I may be able to tweak my Ubangi to sound similar
    3. Mystery Brain..for a minimal roots rock set up, with the Ubangi in front ...although I do have a Rumble Seat pedal already ...what can I say I’m a gear glutton
    4. An AnalogMan King of Tone...but it’s too expensive and frankly I think I get this type of tone more than satisfactorily using a Barber Direct Drive v2 into a Greer Lightspeed..but I’m still intrigued
    5. A fuzz that gives me a retro fuzzrite tone but that is more controllable and can have a buffer before it..I have a Catalinbread fuzzrite but it is so accurate that it is hard to get the fuzz to volume tone right, I think I may need to tame it with my ParaEQ set after it...and it definitely needs to be in front of any buffers

    My fave pedals this year are:

    *Nocturne Mystery Brain
    *Alexander Sky 5000
    *Neunaber Neuron
    *Mooer Radar cab sim
    *Strymon DIG

    Unfortunately(or fortunately?)they are not “bucket list” because I own them.

    Very similar pedals IMO. Do you have a favorite between the two?

    I have found the average for me has been $15-20 in the States and that’s even for the big heavy dual Boss pedals like RC-20. And for that price it included that I had added Signature required as well as the Reverb protection (both cost a couple of bucks, not sure if I’ll do the protection thing in the future). Reverb has a thing you can estimate shipping by typing in the weight and size of box. And after you sell you can pay for shipping through Reverb if you want and simply print label and drop off. It’ll give you options between USPS and UPS. When you sell it’ll even give you a packing slip.

    As a new seller, they’ll hold the payment until the package is delivered for the first couple of sellings. You can also type in your routing number and bank info and they’ll deposit it straight into account number. If I remember right Reverb lowered the percentage of their cut for doing so.

    I’m hoping to test one out soon. I won’t be buying anytime soon, pending some eye surgery and unknown expenses associated therewith.

    Yep, and I’ll be looking forward with new lenses in my eyes. I’ve had some perplexing vision issues of late and found out that I have cataracts. Easy enough to fix; they don’t even knock you out for the surgery.

    Quite honestly, not similar at all.

    Sky 5000 is an ambient machine with dripping infinite reverbs, shimmer, octaver, and yes assorted delays..........

    DIG is a digital delay with some great sounds.

    I'm in Toronto, and within Canada I've shipped as far as Victoria on the west coast, and Newfoundland on the east. Each time it was about 22 bucks for shipping a pedal via Canada Post regular parcel. You can handle shipping costs a few ways. I usually just list the cost plus $20 in shipping. If I lose a few bucks on a long distance shipment, no worries, I make it back on the next closer shipment. I've used Canada Post to ship pickups to California and Florida, it was only about 20 bucks. With bigger items (like amps and guitars) just list $100 shipping, and note in the body of your ad that the shipping cost is an estimate, and will be worked out based on the location of the seller. I shipped a small 5W practice amp to a guy in Washington DC that way. Sent it Canada Post, it arrived four days later.

    Very fickle. Remove that VO-1.
    I’m hot on the ES-5 this week. I would own one if I was in Saskatoon.

    New pedals and order:
    Boss ES-5.
    Two Notes Torpedo C.A.B.M. or C.A.B.
    Neunaber Iconoclast. There was one for sale not long ago here. It may show up at the guitar sale in April.
    Unidentifed pedal to interface with balanced effects units*
    Missing the phaser on my old Peavey Heritage. Anyone know what will do that sound?
    see @ 4:00 of this video

    and 3:30 of this video, he calls it a well known phaser.

    *Maybe someone could help me with this. I recently listened to a whole lot of Guitar Nerds podcast episodes and some GAK podcast episodes. At some point [Matt?] says he may buy some rack versions of certain effects, but thinks they may have balanced inputs and outputs. Earlier in the same episode [Joe?] mentions a new pedal that will do just that, and laughs, “Who would ever need that?” What is that pedal? Or am I confusing the Radial Twinline?

    Me too. Except the few that I will have the time to built, maybe... Or some vintage derelict abandoned items... I mean : I have nothing on target.

    I remember a Fuzz that I made some years ago that captured SW RF noises and mixed it with the guitar signal. You could vary the noise shape, intensity and tone by turning your guitar knobs and switching pickups. On some settings, the noise was triggered by the notes you played : really interesting :cool: !

    Like an idiot, I noted nothing, took no picture about it... Idiot, yes. :mad: I'll try to retrieve how I obtained this... and built a definitive stompbox ! :confused:

    Been there and done that. It’s true, it’s not a huge deal, they do them one at a time and you wear a patch over the eye for a while after surgery. I didn’t have cataracts but lifelong severe myopia - so bad laser couldn’t touch it, so this is what was recommended. Since then my vision has changed very little, so now I can get away with quite weak glasses many years later. Hope it goes smoothly, you’ll get plenty of Ativan or some other good relaxing dope so you won’t even care what’s going on. :p
