    So how much money have you spent on your pedalboard? This should get interesting, especially for guys like Tayste.

    Unused
    Digitech BP-100: I think we spent a mere $60 on it at the time.

    Used
    Aphex Punch Factory: I think $100
    Digitech Whammy: $200
    Marshall Guv'nor: I think $120
    Dunlop 105Q: $100
    Rocktron Silver Dragon: $90
    Rocktek Phaser: $8 :hyper: :D :smug:
    Line 6 Echo Park: $150

    So that comes to $828. That's without tax, cables, power, shipping, etc etc. Kind of unsettling... :p
     
  2. OK, here's mine, all in Canadian dollars

    EBS multi-comp: 230$
    Mini Q-tron: 120$
    big Muff:100$
    Bassballs: 90$
    dunlop 105Q wah: 200$
    digitech digidelay: 220$
    Digitech BSW: 100$
    Morley pro bass wah II: 120$ (sold)
    Zoom 607 (something like that) 140$ (sold long time ago)
    MXR phase 90: 100$


    Boss:
    noise suppressor: 150$
    tuner:100$
    Synth bass SYB-3: 250$ (sold)
    Bass EQ: 65$
    Bass Flanger BF-2B: 60$
    Auto wah AW-3: 80$ (sold)
    Tremolo TR-2: 110$

    I don't count the connectors and cables.

    No one should answer this question unless you want to cry a little. BTW, I am still paying for my bass!

    My pedalboard isn't huge, though I'd like to fix that when I actually get some money... A new bass is more important, though.

    USD here.

    Digitech Bass Synth Wah -- $80

    Boss OBD-3 -- $120 (Local music store was out of the OBD-3, and I'd gotten a Digitech BSW, love it, and thought the Digitech bass Driver would be the same quality. I was horribly wrong, and I finally sold it back for half it's purchase price. So $80 for the OBD-3, $40 for the Bass Driver, I count it as $120.)

    Dunlop 105q -- $100

    used ProCo vintage Rat -- $25

    Boss BF-3 -- $120

    ----

    $445 total. I want to add a Digitech Whammy and a Boss DD-6 after a get another bass, so I guess it'll end up being almost $800 total for pedals... Damn. I need to start buying more used stuff.
