Five guitar effects pedals by Boss, Moollon, and Pearl. The first two of those are long and thin with a rocking top part for adjusting with a foot

Five guitar effects pedals by Boss, Moollon, and Pearl. The first two of those are long and thin with a rocking top part for adjusting with a footWhilst having an effects sort out I put my 1986 line up back together (with the Moollon substituting for an Italian Crybaby that died long ago). By the end of that year I’d decided it was far too much effort and didn’t use effects live again for twenty years.
