Digitech Synth Wah pedal.
the wah sucks cept for some settings it has, and the synth sounds so ****ty, and if u play more then one string at a time it turns into a cloud of ****!

A Behringer X-V Amp. 200$ of pure crap.
It's not even a natural distortion it's a ****.

My Peavey Bandit 112 ain't **** anyway!

Marshall Valvestate 100 watt half stack.
I only really lost $25 after re-selling it though.
#10
endless cables that suck, the blue and plaid ones. i must have wasted 100$ before i went to a wireless/monster cable setup. as for serious gear, really nothing, but the spider 1 has horrible tones and effects, but i dont use them with my pedals.
#12
crate xt30RC-- what the hell, crate. horrible harsh sound, absolutely could not control the dynamics or or tone. it could hardly handle the 11 gauge strings on my strat, the cheap speaker would muddy up terribly on the low strings.

fender standard made in mexico strat--bridge or saddle or something is so cheap and loose that my high e string won't ring properly. and i wish the frets were bigger so i could fret a little cleaner like on an american strat.

buying a roller nut for said strat--the guitar tech said that would help. thanks a lot numb nuts.

dunlop strap locks--incredibly annoying rattle, also the screw that came with it wouldn't fit on my ovation's peg and i accidentally messed up the peg hole, gotta get it fixed now.

martin sp strings--the coating on the plain strings corrodes more than the plain steel on uncoated ones does in the first place! i keep cleaning the strings and brown keeps coming off of them.

danelectro mini-pedals--some didn't work at all, the reverb would squeal loudly when the battery was low

haha, damn, I can't believe those are $300. More so, I can't believe you paid for it .

I can't say I regret anything I've bought. Most my gear has been bought for me from ex's besides, my amp & guitars [though, my one ex scored me the Gibson for $200]. Though I do have a MT-2 pedal I bought used for $40 I'll never touch again [ew, wtf is with pedal distortion?]
My gear:
'96 Ibanez S540FMTT
'91 Standard Gibson SG [w/ Bare Knuckle Warpigs]
Peavey Triple XXX 112

being a noob, and just going by the Marshall name, I bought an MG for my first amp. Didn't like it, so I upgraded to an AVT thinking it was going to sound like a tube amp. lol Wish I had known about UG back then.

Probably a Line 6 Uber metal.


Yeah, its definaly not meant to be your main distortion like it is advertised. I remeber when i used to have one...all u could hear was distortion, no tone at all. I traded it for the dime distortion, it was a good trade, but i finally figured out how to use an uber metal and i'm never gonna get it back...oh well.

My worst is probably $50 for a Crate XT15R it was 50% off at Guitar center and I needed a starter amp. It works great though, but if I was smarter at the time I would have went a little more expensive and gotten something slightly better for a starter.

I don't buy expensive stuff without being sure of it first since I used to swap gear all the time, that being said, the 2mm Dunlop Big stubbies suck, I rounded off the tip on countless from downpicking.

Hmmm... definately my capo. It cost $50 and I hardly ever use it.

Mesa/Boogie V-Twin, never got a nice tone out of it with my Peavey classic 20. seems to made only to work with Mesa amps. Cant remember how much I paid, but what ever it was it was too much.

$425 for the WH-1 Whammy. I never use it. Only for Audioslave/Rage covers. I guess this means I'm not as creative as Morello?

I Spent $299 on a piece of **** called the Crate GT1200 head. I dont know what i was thinking when i bought it. I guess i was still just a dumb kid thinking how badass it would be to have a half stack. Worst Tone ever ive ever heard come out of amp. But i guess the good thing that came out of it was that i ended up trading it for the my awesome head that i have now. I dont know how i got away with that one but the salesman at my local shop traded me a Peavey Ultra tube head for it straight up.(its an earlier version of the XXX).

Ibanez Smash Box for ?89,-. Waaay to much gain. Sounds like they turned the gain to 10 and then ripped off the knob.

Epiphone '67 Flying V Reissue. Worthless piece of plywood which I bought for about 200 euros. Sold it for 250 though.
