    I was going thu my closet selling off some unused equipment to help finance my DPLEIII Decade when I cam across these two pedals. I was going to off them for like $50 each till I looked them up and plugged them in again. Now I plan on keeping them and using them again.


    I found out this is a rather rare & sought after little guy who people are paying up to $500 for. I plugged it in and found out why, It has the warmest, clear, gentle phasing I ever heard. Push it and you get the great warble tremolo sound back off a bit and get smooth creamy warm waves , but never overiding your tone. Great effect pedal.

    Next up was my Boss DM2 Delay

    I always knew thas was a great delay pedal. I use to use it a lot. What I did not know is that it is supposed to be the best & last of the anologue Boss pedals and was only built for a couple of years, then they changed it. I read they are hard to find and again going for $200- $300!

    Cool pedals, but $500 for a DOD phasor? I find that extremely hard to believe.

    Ha, there has to be one too many zeros in there.

    I was looking into that Boss delay on ebay. I think it went for around $150 - not bad for vintage analog delay, especially when the new DD-6's are around the same price.

    That Boss DM2 is very highly regarded and they are not easy to come by. Dont hear of too many bass player using them but guitar players go nuts for them.
  7. You've heard of me!

    Man, frankly I think you're crazy to be selling a DM-2. They're awesome pedals... but waste not want not!

    I used it playing live for A Stanley Clarke funk pop sound & Pink Floydish stuff. A touch of delay fills out your sound really nice, and gave my tone a bit of warmth. The studio I use to record at had a Space Echo, this was the only pedal I could find that came close to it. I bought it new back in the 80's.

    I used it a lot playing live.

    I bought the Line 6 delay (green box) and have been pretty much using that. I do notice I can't get the same warmth from it that can from the Boss pedal.

    Anyone try the DOD Phasor?
    It's a really cool little pedal.

    Anyone else have a hidden Gem pedal besides the MeatBall & Akia Deep space pedal?

    I also used to have an amazing Flanger that was dark red Cast housing with two knobs that was really great, but was stolen. I can't remember if it was a MXR?

    What are some great overlooked pedals you have?

    Bought a new ART PhatBoy back in the late '90s but the durn thing went belly-up few years back. I finally found a used one at a decent price and added it to the arsenal. The presets are just that...preset. Aside from a wet/dry knob, the effects are non-tweakable but are voiced nicely. Its the perfect set-up for compulsive knob turners.
