i got this given to me after i made a trade with the singer of Maylene and the sons of disaster (Dallas) it was supposedly used on their third album. i am pretty sure it was him because i noticed his tattoos and comparing them to photos after i got the amp in the trade.

he either is legit, or he is a fake with strikingly similar tattos. i dont know. i do know the band is based around here. i did the trade in Sarasota.

this was all a year or so ago.

surprisingly the pedal doesn't sound as bad as i thought, actually seemed usable. i was inspired to try it after the other thread was talking about "metal pedals." its only the second time i used it.

but anyways i realize that they are no longer manufactured. if my information is correct 1993-1998.

mine was made in Taiwan, i dont know if that means anything or not, good or bad.

AF38939 is the serial.

they are a bunch listed on ebay under completed listings anywhere from $45-60 shipped, but on another site (in the US) had one for like $120 and sold for that i guess.

this is the only boss pedal i have ever owned. i don't really like boss.

what should i do have it collect dust? sell it? keep it? [although unlikely] potential for appreciation?

i know some boss pedals that are discontinued to appreciate, but i have a feeling not anything in 1993-1998.

it is in impeccable shape.

it is kind of cool to have just because it was used on Maylene's album and more likely than unlikely it was their vocalist, literally unless somebody had the same tattoo work done.

i guess the only reason why i posted this is see if there is something i am missing.

Dude I love Dallas! I've enjoyed him since Underoath. I also own a piece of gear used by a semi famous musician. If anything it's a good conversation piece. The only thing I can think of that would make a boss sell for more than what the ebay ones are going for is maybe it was MIJ compared to MIT? just my .02.

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

okay, thanks. he was surprisingly very chill. he didn't even plug the amp i traded him into the wall before we left. we talked for a while, it was kind of nice that he wasn't trying to rush me out. genuine nice guy. the amp i got from him is the Trace Elliot Speed Twin. apparently one of them picked up the amp on tour in Europe and brought it back and had a tech replace the transformers, mercury magnetic transformers even.

i think i will hold onto it, i sure as hell don't need $60.

I did a bit more research. Boss had moved to Taiwan before they started production of the Hyper Metal. More than likely the pedal you saw being sold for twice the ebay price was someone trying to scam a misinformed soul.

MIT is normal. MIJ Boss pedals are the good ones.

Semi off topic, but why do dislike Boss? Seems strange to me that you don't like them, yet you've never owned one before this one, which you've basically never used.

i have played quite a few of them and haven't been happy with them. some of them would be passable, some not.

the problem is that they aren't that cheap, and i can find something better sitting on TGP or eBay for the same price, whatever it may be. i don't mind spending more for something better. that doesn't mean i wouldn't buy a boss if it sounded great to me. after trying a bunch of them over the span of my playing, i haven't found one worth owning. :shurg: everybody has their opinions though.

That's true. I'm certainly not trying to judge you.

Though for what it's worth, I love the shit out of my HM-2. My MIJ GE-7 was nice too.

no worries about judging. i would definitely like to hear some of the MIJ pedals, IIRC some of them are awesome, but they tend pretty pricey. i know there were some rather amazing chorus pedals a few decades ago that i would certainly like to try/own.
