So far, I think I bought in no order:

Jam Rattler
Fairfield Circuitry Four Eyes Fuzz
Boss FZ-1w (bought it last November, but recently got it, so I guess it counts for 2022)
Boss DD-2
Boss DSD-2
Boss MZ-2
Boss FZ-2

My small Boss collection is slowly growing with about 37 pedals now...I love them :)

Oh and I have a PRS Silver Sky SE on order too!

I've bought nothing but used pedals off of this forum and it's becoming a bit of a problem lol. I grabbed a Boss GE7 in December, a Boss DD2 at the beginning of the year and an Ibanez TS9 is currently on route. Every time one of these boxes shows up my wife kind of looks at me oddly and I feel obligated to explain to her that I only spent money from gear that I sold in 2021.

I dunno. Replicating the tone of an early-issue Electric Mistress CAN be done with current-production chips. It requires additional circuitry, to compensate for what came naturally to the Reticon chips but not to the Panasonic chips. But I think of all the owners of well-loved vintage effects who cannot find a replacement delay chip for love or money. To see this lot used for the purpose of new "authenticity", kind of bugs me. If either of my MXR Micro-Flangers went on the fritz, I could probably never bring them back to life. And they're not the only SAD-512-based flangers or choruses out there.

There is no denying that some of the very best flangers EVER used Reticon chips, whether 512-stage or 1024-stage. The reason is that the clock inputs on those chips had very low input capacitance, enabling them to handle very high clock frequencies, necessary to achieve the ultra-short minimum delays needed for dramatic and "chewy" flanging tones. The Panasonic chips have a much higher clock input capacitance, which tends to "de-square" the clock pulses it gets, once they get above 100khz or so. If the clock pulses are nicely buffered, however, the Panasonic chips can be pushed MUCH higher. I've personally seen one get safely pushed up to 1.5mhz. This is why I say the tone of the old Reticon-based flangers can be replicated with even lowly Coolaudio and Beling chips.

I don't wish to be critical of someone honoring a great design. But it starts to feel like someone shooting an elephant, in order to have the ivory to perfectly replicate the keys of a late 1800s Steinway.
I remember when Radio Shack used to sell the SAD-1024....early 80s.

Yes, and I bought a couple at that time. If you remember that period, then you'll be familiar with the sense of anticiation each August and September when the new catalog came out and you'd want to see what the "fantastic new chip" was that year.
