If ever needed putting one of them in a tube sock would produce an excellent improvised defensive weapon .... those things could take getting run over by a semi truck.
That is why I always leave mine unplugged... for quick chucking. Seriously love the EKO 'pedal'.

you find a ton of old dod and arion pedals floating around really cheap. one of those old dod filter pedals could be a lot of fun. or their old delay/sampler pedals, which were some of the first digital delay pedals.
Yep. Love the legacy pedals of DOD and Digitech for some oddness. Some are pretty pricey these days though.

I recently sold five pedals without buying a single new one. I think I'll pause for a while, although I still think I need a couple of HOTONE pedals: Krush and EQ-V possibly.

... yup, for those gigs where there is chain link fencing protecting the stage from drunken bottle slingers ... y'know, your everyday average shitty gig attended by ordinary average people ... 'cause you're an ordinary average guy (sorry, that Joe Walsh song is stuck in me noggin for some reason).

You mean this place has hot chicks, morning drinking, and free vomit? ... I'm all in!

I would generally run a raw extension cord to the façade to keep the 'fans' from clawing at me, but I found a fire extinguisher works better for a fast getaway.

Serious though, the Hotone EKO has a fair amount of variation between the modes. Living on my Micromoog currently and does a nice enough job.

I have a pair of Behringer VD400 delays that I use for stereo experiments. Noisy and cheap. Now I see them selling for more used than new?

Good times.

Mooer Black Secrets have gone up but you can still get a pretty good RAT in a wee enclosure for $30 used.

Those DOD pedals are getting ludicrously more expensive all the time these days, with only a handful of exceptions, which sadly don't include the FX25 (Haven't looked at 25B prices in a while, though) or the Delay/Sampler pedals.

People are charging Buzz Box prices for original Death Metals now that they've become a well-worn Internet "meme"/Instagram photo-op or whatever. It's a fucking travesty.
