I think the priciest I ever has was a Maxon AD999. I got it shipped over from the US back when the exchange rate was pretty good and not all packages got stopped for VAT + added comedy tax. I think it was about 150, I had it for about 5 years and sold it for the same price.

I had a Moog Ring Modulator once too, that was pricey but I have no idea how much it was, that was shipped from the US too and sold for more than it cost me.

Pedalwise, I think I've a few which about draw - a custom MBM Dreambox, a ZVex Fuzz Probe and an EHX POG2 which all cost about 120.

And my old GT-6 which I bought new pretty much as soon as it came out for 330.

233 for my Lunar edition Moogerfooger Freqbox and around 210 for my POG.

I suppose as a counter to this, and before the thread pops up anyway, I also paid 20 for a copy of a ZVex Woolly Mammoth (hint: it's really good for 20, it's really shit for the RRP of 200+ or whatever) and around 10 for a copy of the Fuzzgun, made by the same guy. In terms of shop-bought pedals I got my Big Muff Tone Wicker for 30 which was faaaaab.

200 for my Blackout Effectors Twosome. Annoyingly, I think I frefer my big muff tone wicker compared to the musket in the twosome. The fix'd fuzz is good though.

Will probably buy the minifooger drive. That's pretty pricey at 140.

Brand new OCD (v4) bought from Guitar Center Manhattan when I was in NYC a couple of years ago - can't remember what it cost, but it was cheaper than buying it here.

(Oh, and it's the best dirt pedal ever.)

Excluding the M13, because that's a multi effect, it's either (depending on the exchange rate at the time):

    - 147 for a TC Flashback x4 (last month, it's a cracker, wanted a second delay and a looper - why did I ever sell the M13, I hear you cry...)
    - $200 for a Skreddy Ernie (2011, hankered after one for years, immediate and overwhelming buyer's remorse)
    - $199 for a Paul C Tim (same time as the above, hence it's inclusion and me overlooking the dollar difference; always hankered after one, means I've got a monogrammed pedal, and wanted to support an independent builder who's also a lovely fella: that it's a brilliant pedal really helps)

Either my Boss RC-3 or MBM Multiplex Echo Machine. Both were about 170 IIRC. Both ace - no regrets whatsoever on either.

Having been sniffing around reverb pedals recently though and some of those are pretty toppy.

Probably about 135 for one of my Catalinbread pedals (DLS and FN5).

Yeah in fairness I don't at all regret spending so much on my Strymon. It's the best pedal I've ever owned and I've hardly scratched the surface of what it's capable of doing.

I picked up my EHX Cathedral for 140 or so. My RE-20 was even less than that - 120 or thereabouts. I felt like I'd got a proper bargain for a change, because those bargains on the 'bay that everyone talks about always seem to elude me and I end up paying normal RRP for everything (Re: the Cathedral).

I don't regret either purchase though. Both are excellent bits of kit.

Poly Chorus but I don't remember what they cost back then. They went up to far more later but it was still a lot, over $200 I'm sure.

Most of my expensive pedals were around the $150 mark: Digitech XP-100 Whammy/Wah, RAT Deucetone, Fulltone Supa-Trem, Akai Headrush... and I don't like even spending that much on a pedal, as there's been no effect I haven't gotten tired of eventually. Fun to experiment with but not something I want to break the bank on, nowhere near as important as guitars or amplifiers at the end of the day.
