    Well, I haven't revisited a pedal, but I have repurchased an amp that I sold. A Tech 21 Trademark 60. It's a weird little amp but just seems to fit what I need every once in awhile.

    And then I had a girlfriend that came back once and wanted to do it all over again, but I thought, "Naah..."

    I have “consciously revisited” pedals, like the Metal Zone, DS-1, Ibanez CS5, Ibanez MS-10 Metal Charger, the Boss Blues Driver. Others I have re-bought in the years after the Eastern pedal blight wiped many of them out. One interesting thing about these pedals is that some of them got an upgrade — the OCD went up a few revisions, the 535Q went from 18V to 9V and got a red Fasel inductor, my Mini Q-tron became a Q-tron +, the Polytune was two revisions newer, and the BMP New York got a fresh paint job when I bought a new one that didn’t have all the scratches my friend had put on the old one.

    And my favourite double-mint pedal story: I had let another friend borrow my Tech21 U.S. Steel. I knew he would have it pretty long-term, and I thought I might want to use it before then. So I bought another one.

    Had a Cry Baby wah which I didn’t like. Sold that and got a Vox wah (which is one of the Dunlop versions). Still have that.

    Had a script Phase 90. Someone stole the circuit board out of it. Think it was my old keyboard player. Jerk. Bought a more recent one which I still have.

    Had a real Maestro Bass Brassmaster. I think that same keyboard player opened it up and scratched the circuit board up with something (he hated effects on bass). Built my own years later.

    Also had a Yamaha Rex50 effects unit. The old one broke back in the 80s. Bought a used one a few years ago on eBay.

    OT, but how close was a Foxy Lady to a Big Muff?

    Currently own two Boss NS2s.

    Works great with my big rig - no tone suck whatsoever, but does add a bit of buzz to clean sounds but that's easily filtered out by my ear plugs.
    Not so great with my small home setup - chews up some of the high end and without ear plugs in, the added buzz when playing clean gets annoying. Still does the job fairly well once I move into high gain territory.

    You could have two similar EQ in your board...

    It was a rebranded Big Muff. Even said Electro Harmonix on the circuit board.

    The older Foxy Lady was a two knob distortion from EHX.

    I had one of the "version 1" MXR Wylde Overdrives that I LOVED and I still have no idea what compelled me to sell it. I bought one of the later versions that had different knobs and all that, and it seemed to be built so much cheaper, didn't sound as good as I remembered and then the switch broke and I just threw it out in disappointment. Not sure if I'll buy another since I have my eyes on other overdrives and I have a perfectly good TS already.

    Another that I may own again soon is a Russian Big Muff. I had a black box as my very first effect pedal, and it didn't sound like Slash so I returned it, and here I am years later wishing I had it now that I know its applications better. Oh, to be young and dumb.

    I had a green Russian Big Muff. I didnít like it. Didnít have that smooth tone like my old one. I eventually sold it for more than I bought it for. Lol. It was mint, and I still had the wooden crate it came in. Funny how we all like what we like.

    Boss SD-1.

    Had one, sold it because it was just a tad too quiet and didn't reach unity gain with hot pickups. Made my OCD click, so I got rid of. I recently realized it sounded killer, and that it doesn't really matter if it's a tad quiet since it's getting lots of gain dropped on top of, so I got another one. Honestly, might do the same about the Duncan 805 I sold a few weeks ago, LOL.

    I had one of the Green ones in a wood box and never cared all that much for it. I have one of the new EH reissues and it sounds light years better than the old one, but it's pretty much a dedicated bass fuzz for the band now. I much prefer my stomp under foot civil war muff.

    Totally, sonic maximizer. I instantly regretted selling and got it back. Line 6 POD I sold and bought back. I did it with an amp before, A Fender M80. Oh yea, been there a bunch.

    An original Fender Blender. Stolen in 1972. Years later, bought a second one. Stolen. (Won't buy another one!)

    My original VOX Wah was stolen in 1972. I replaced it with a Thomas Organ Cry Baby. I've also acquired a modern CB Classic, and a newish VOX Clyde McCoy, but the old Thomas is the one I use.

    I have at least two Boss DD-3s around. I have a Carbon Copy original, and a new CC Bright.

    I have an old blue MXR 10-Band EQ that I used with my old SUNN Solos II 212 combo, and I bought a second one years ago for a backup. And then acquired a new foot switchable model to use with my Taylor acoustic, but I could never get the warmth out of the Taylor I wanted, even with the MXR.

    I've replaced my ailing Boss PH-1r Phasor with a PH-3. Like the 1r better. Replaced a TU-2 with a TU-3, and now I've bought the WAZA version.

    And I've acquired several SNARK Super Tight tuners and Korg CA-30s. I tend to acquire stuff and hang on to it. And if I like it, I'll buy multiples, if I have a need.

    When you've had budget guitars for a number of years, you may find that your old instrument is holding you back. A quality guitar can inspire you to write great songs, improve your understanding of the Gdim chord while in the Lydian Mode, cure the heartbreak of cystic acne--and help you find true love in the process.
