    Another thread got me thinking.

    What pedals have you sold or flipped, and then ended up re-buying?

    Bonus points if you flipped and repurchased multiple times.

    Regretted selling but needed the $ at the time.

    Repurchased shortly thereafter. Lesson learned.

    Dunlop Q wah-wah. Sold it after I left a Hard Rock band in 2005, got another when I rejoined them in 2019.

    I took an extended break from playing, and also needed the $$.

    So far the list of reacquired effects is:
    Lexicon Vortex
    EHX Small Stone Phaser
    ADA Flanger
    Vintage TelRey Power Fuzz Wah

    Still on the list, but will probably have to go with a reissue/clone since originals are crazy pants $$$ now:
    Mutron III

    Bass Fly Rig - Used it for awhile, hated it, sold it. Went ampless and now it's all I use. (It works better when I run my basses in passive mode.) (Also saves me from buying batteries when only using passive mode.)

    Boss ME-50B - used it back in the day to fill the sonic gaps in a three piece. Sold it when I moved on. Missed it. Bought it again. Sold it again. Bought it again. Went to trade it, fell in love with it when they tested it in front of me. Kept it. Keeping it. Not using it.

    Only one for me - EHX Q-Tron. Love the sound, not optimal controls for me, but couldnt find better one.

    I've had at least 5 or 6 BAssmasters, BassBallses, and Octron2s!!! I keep either needing the money more than the sound, or i just fall out of love with the sound again. Reminds me, I'm about due for another BAssmaster.... LOL

  11. So far, the Morley bass wah. Stupid thing is, I sold it again but really want another one.
    A while ago I thought I was going to switch over to Helix so I sold my Flashback delay. Big mistake. There was this one toneprint that was just perfect for my needs. But then again, TC have just released the Flashback 2, so maybe now I can justify buying a new pedal...

  14. I miss my EQD Park Fuzz. I haven't bought it back but will wait for used prices to drop a little more. I can wait it out.....

    Not sure if it counts as a pedal, but it does sit on the floor and has buttons for my feet. VoiceLive2. On my third one. First one I left the band where I used it, so I sold it. Got another one down the road, then it needed to become Christmas presents for the kids. Finally on my third one.
