New pedals for my collection

Unread post by Mimasu » Thu Jan 31, 2019 8:33 pm

It was some time ago I could add some pedals to my collection but 3 'new' ones arrived today:

The situation at the moment:

PSE series, almost complete including the SB-40, SB-100 and SB-200, only missing the extremely rare OD;

PSE 40A modular system, :? , no, very hard to find;

SDS 10M series: 3 out of 6, CH, DI and GE to go;

SDS MII series: 5 out of 6, only the FL to go;

SDS 20M series: complete (but that's only 3 8) );

SDS 100 series: 11 out of 26, so a lot to go.

That's a lot of pedals. Have you ever seen a first series OD anywhere or are they really just unicorns?

I guess the price is steep. But they are pretty much 40 plus years old and they aren't making any more. So.............

That's the problem :? . Buying that OD-1 would cost me about 250 usd to my door. And every time I'm tempted to buy.... but I know it's ridiculous to pay 250 for a pedal only a few weirdo's fancy......... I'm not gonna play it (got much better stuff on my pedal board)......... and the only reason for buying would be the fact that it's the only of the first series I'm missing :cry: .

Leon

And yes I'm really tempted becourse this one looks great :pray:

13K yen is about $118 USD
Using a proxy service can be very inexpensive, only a few dollars plus local shipping which usually runs me about $20 for a guitar.

International shipping shouldn't be too bad. EMS, is cost effective to US. That is Japan Post international. To the US it's like $120 for a guitar. Should be significantly less for something the size of a pedal.

If you want to explore further and can probably get ship costs and all look at FromJapan or ZenMarket, both are cost effective. Rinkya is excellent service but much more expensive, although for this may not matter. They have the best service, but cost the most. Rinkya can probably tell you exactly how much will cost through their chat.

Checked through Buyee. The 13k yen one is ruined by some weird mods and holes. The other one looks OK. Got inland shipping first, than Buyee fee, international shipping. Than I have to pay tax over the total amount (pedal + shipping). When it arrivés in my country the customs are done by the shipping company (they sometimes open the package to check if they agree with the value on the package) and they send me an invoice for the tax. And if they do they have the right to send me an extra invoice for the work they have done. Taxes is more than 20% and the costs are up to 20 usd, yes even if it is a pedal I bought for 30 usd (all this trouble begins when the value of a imported item is more than about 25 usd).

Leon

BTW: thanks for the Rinkya tip.

Duties aren't as high here, but works similarly. EMS goes through postal service so fees are generally less, at least here.

I haven't tried it, but some also offer shipping by sea, which takes longer, but cheaper again. I should try sea, but not sure I have the patience to wait...

Though I'm a Yamaha lover and collector I have no Yamaha pedal on my pedalboard:

IMG_0044.jpg

That answers the question I presume :( .

Yamaha made some very decent pedals, but soundwise it's not top of the bill I think. But I'm a tone nerd and perhaps many others think they sound great.

Perhaps two exceptions: The early overdrives sound great, at least my OD-10M does. And the FL-01 is wanted for it's great "insane" sounds when used with extreme settings.

But perhaps it's not a fair comparison. Some pedals on my board cost 3 to 4 times the price I would pay for a vintage Yamaha equivalent.

I can put an acoustic in 'gtr a' and an electric in 'gtr e'.

With one of the switches of the Acouswitch Junior I switch from acoustic to electric, automatically muting the guitar not in use. The electric passes all pedals. The acoustic passes none. The 'amp e' is connected to my electric guitar amp, at the moment a Vintage Sound V15, the 'amp a' is connected to an AER Compact 60 2 for acoustic. With the other switch of the Junior I can engage the tuner for electric as well as acoustic.
