Or it confirms my suspicion that he does also not like the smell of early '80s BOSS Pedals, just like the problem I have with MIJ BF-2 pedals.
Yeah, possibly. It never worried me ... smells like vintage money 8-)

There is nothing obvious visually. Actually, it is one of the cleanest looking DM-2 boards I've ever seen.

I wonder if it was previously in the home of heavy smoker?
Maybe, but it is definitely burnt electronics smell. Like you'd swear a capacitor was blown or something. I have 2 of these and the other doesn't smell at all. Thanks for the help!

I know the difference between "vintage" or old smell. This is a distinct electronics burnt smell, exactly like when a capacitor is fried. I have 2 of these and the other does not smell like this

Okay, then it's very strange, because the board does indeed look very, very clean.
