Firstly, Boss SY-1. Now you, too, can sound like an Atari ST game soundtrack (no jokes tho, I fucking love how wacky this is).

Boss MD200:



And some other stuff I don't care about as much:

Boss finally paying attention to EHX, Meris, EQD; sounds pretty good but a more preset and sanitised version of what those guys are doing.

The fact it has the freeze function gives it an immediate built-in flexibility that the others generally don't, aside from the EHX Freeze/SuperEgo variants.

P&FX take it to task in a far more natural exploratory manner

Boss and EHX are the all time best pedals.

£175 at Gear4Music
I quite fancy one, can't think what I'd use it for apart from messing about at home.

I can give you a better deal than that. I'll give you 175 UKP for only 600 USD.

I like the look and sounds of the synth compact A LOT but what Nick has said (dont know what it'd be used for except messing about at home) stuck out to me, because I just keep falling for that one.

SO many times I've seen such a comment about some sound like a keyboard instrument pedal and thought "anything you want; it'll change my life/the world, man" then I buy one and get tired of it in a few months or leave it off the next iteration of pedalboard. It generally ends up in the pile of pedals on top of my little practice amp that I use to see what they all sound like with sexy R&B chords after I learn some new ones.

It's best just to buy a synth.

But these do look cool, and I do want one

Yeah, I kinda feel the same; I nearby bought a EHX Mel9 so many times, but kept coming back to the fact that you'd be locked down to those few choices; you couldn't even change the octave.

So, I got me a midi interface and my guitar can be anything.

*plays Eruption but with fart samples*

That MD200 looks awesome. But what about a hi-band flange option?

I have recently been missing my Boss RV-6. I now have a Neunaber Wet and a Blue Sky (yes, I spoil myself, I'm worth it, etc). But there was just something about the RV-6. Magic tones when combined with certain cheapies like the Digiverb and the Cool Cat Chorus.
