Picked up a Mint condition Wampler Plexi-Drive Deluxe in the box for $125.
I already have one on my main pedal board but now I've got a backup. It'll be nice to toss into the back of a combo amp and slag it to rehearsal without hassling the whole board. They're a great MIB style pedal and it works well with most of my gear. Not very fussy, and the original price was $169. I couldn't pass it up when he went down to $125. Not bad for a like new $239 street price pedal...it was a good day.

Nice find. You are right. It's a good MIB pedal. I cant find much use for the boost feature though. I kind of wish they had left it off and went with a smaller box. I like the better EQ more than the original version. I'm just nit picking though. I push mine with a Clarksdale.
Just ordered a B-stock Pinnacle Deluxe V2 a couple of days ago. I'm becoming a real Wampler fanboy. Also got the Faux Tap Echo Deluxe on the way--in the demos it seems to compare very well to the Strymon el Cap.
Z-Lux combo: red/ZW Cure Friedman Mini Dirty Shirley and matching cab
A dozen other Z amps/cabs I've sold or traded. I may have a problem--but I'm an excellent customer.
I’m so far behind you guys that I don’t know what MIB is...
Or Bluetooth, for that matter....
If yer not pullin' my leg, Bluetooth is a short range wireless technology specification for using wireless headphones, controllers, or for connecting your phone to your car's infotainment system etc. It's low power and short range. For example, I've got Bluetooth headphones and if I walk more than 20 or 30 feet from the TV it drops out. Its okay when it works but it can be a pain.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
