OK,
Daddy brought home a bunch of boss pedals that a guy at work doesnt use anymore.
No, he's not just giving them to me.
They're all 1980's jap pedals,
I'd like your opinions on whether they're good or not, and how much they're worth.

Digital Delay (DD-3)
Heavy Metal (HM-2)
Chorus (CE-3)
Super Overdrive (SD-1)
Distortion (DS-1)
Power Supply & Master Switch (PSM-5)

They're in a boss pedal board.
Thanks Boys

(btw, realistic prices, im the one who has to pay )

I'd keep some of those man, some of them are good pedals. At least the DD-3, the SD-1, and the DS-1. Maybe get the DS-1 Keeley modded then sell it for more?

That HM-2 is actually pretty great for that old school death metal tone, it just nails it.

Keep the chorus and the delay and maybe the sd-1. How much are you paying?

Don't worry about the conversion, I'm Australian too.

Ill go down the list and give you info for the one's im familiar with and recommend getting.

DD-3: Great pedal for basic delay sounds; ping-pong, slap back, or just thickening up your tone. Very nice for leads and solos as well. If you're into more far-out or spacey/trippy sounds, its not what you're after. $80

SD-1: Good at what it does, but it only does 2 things. You can use it to get a really nice bluesy tone on a clean channel, or to push your overdrive channel into, well... more overdrive. Basically, that means more gain without sacrificing that tubey deliciousness. A great thing about this pedal is its cheap, but really moddable. $30

CE-3: Chorus pretty much makes it sound like more than one guitar playing at once. It splits your sound in two, modifies one part, and mixes them back together. Pretty cool, and if you tweak it right, you get a nice vibrato-like sound. However, CE-3 is prettyy far out of date, so I wouldn't pay much for it. $15

DS-1: Pretty much a piece of crap in my opinion. Unless you get the Keeley mod, then its a sex in a box. $10 (Buy it and get the keeley mod. Seriously, do it.)

EDIT: Sorry, all these are USD prices... I would convert, but I don't know the current rate.

EDIT 2: Wait, I just looked it up and now that I know 1 USD> 1 AUD, then just tell your dad those are the AUD prices

The CE-3 went for 80 dollars on Australian eBay.

The Boss delays go for a bit but aren't often on eBay.

The SD-1 would go for around 50 dollars on eBay.

The DS-1 also would go for around 50 dollars.

I have seen them at this price.

Just because it goes for a certain price on ebay doesn't mean you should pay that much. The CE-3 is old and out of date, and the CE-5 goes for 90 bucks brand new. The SD-1 is $60 new. The DS-1 is even cheaper than that ebay price, its only 40 dollars new.

The HM-2 is a great bass distortion.

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

I'm not saying he should pay that much for them, i am notifying him of how much they go for on eBay so he can get a rough idea of how much to pay, but still not paying 80 dollars for the chorus. More like 40 or 50.

About the DS-1, 40 bucks new, not in Australia. Prices are jacked up, which is why they go for 50 bucks on eBay used.

Hang on, because these are from the 80's surely they are the better quality Boss pedals compared to modern equivalents?
#13
Get him to go as low as you can, but really, the Japanese Boss pedals from the 80's are the only desirable Boss pedals (IMHO). They often sell for more than their brand new counterparts. I don't think $400 is a bad price.

Check completed auctions on ebay and see how much they're selling for. Make sure you specifically look up the the Japan 80's ones.
