Between this post and some other memories I pulled the trigger on the big old MXR yesterday.
When the Rolling Stones Emotional Rescue record came out is the same summer ('80) I got my first Telecaster. I was playing in a pretty heavy band at the time. The guitar really opened my mind. This song in particular. I was on tour and I had a cassette and I kept rewinding it over and over.
I found out the MXR was what Keith was using. He still uses it. I had one. It got stolen. Excited to get it back!
That's fantastic. I'd buy one of those if I stumbled across one. Similarly, I've always like the sister to this pedal (the old MXR 117 Flanger) and have always been tempted to pick one up. May have to put it on my list. Nothing sexier than a pedal with its own power cord !
I have the old gray MXR 117. It's without a doubt the best sounding flanger I've ever heard, and I've owned a BUNCH of em!
I know this analog delay sounds great as well.

roscoenyc: Almost every piece of gear I have except for my tuner has at least one knob. Those are for adjusting. PSA for the "too much bass" crowd.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
