I guess that many of you are pedal nerds like me… I really like to collect vintage effects, it feels like owning a piece of music electronics history somehow!
I have 4 pedals that are “collectible”:
- Boss Hyper Fuzz FZ-2 (these things are getting rarer and rarer!)
- Boss DD-2 (first digital effect in stompbox format!)
- Univox Superfuzz (love it!)
- Maestro FZ-1A (one of the first fuzz ever made!)
This things seems quite expensive, but I always look on listing website, and with a lot of patience you can get these for pretty “affordable prices”.
I usually buy non working vintage effects and repair it. That is how I got the Super Fuzz and Maestro FZ1A!
Here is a picture
My next dream would be to get and Ibanez Session Man. These things are distortion + chorus, 80s spirit all the way! With the DD-2, I will be ready to rock an old pink Charvel haha!
And you? Do you got some vintage stompboxes?
