I have lots of pedals, but a small number of them are my favorites. Here are my favorites:

Barber Burn Unit (dual overdrive)
Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe (compressor)
Strymon Timeline (delay)
Fultone Clyde Deluxe (wah)
Rim Rock Lil Mo and/or Aluminum Falcon II (Klon klone overdrives)

What are yours?

Do I have to own them or merely love what they did?

Favourite pedals I have (had), in no particular order:

Fulltone OCD
Strymon Big Sky
Diamond memory lane jr

One of my favourite pedals to use however is the Dr. Scientist bitquest. That thing brought many epic moments to tracking LP3.

I fixed a couple pedals for a guitarist neighbour two weeks back. One of them was an old blue MXR 6-band EQ. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed and missed the one I used to have in the 70's. Makes a great OD pedal.

I very much like the Pearl PH-44 phaser I picked up used. Has ramp-up/ramp-down. I really liked the old Univox compressor I had at the same time as my blue 6-band, and like the clone I made for myself recently every bit as much. I'm just exploring it now, in the free moments I have between building and yardwork, but I think the Chase Bliss Condor I was gifted with will continue to grow on me.

Still up in the air is a PAiA flanger I started building in 1992 and hope to finish this year. It should have an amazing sound, but I have to stop yielding to distractions to know that for sure.

This is a bit of a Cop out but... The best pedals are always whatever is on my board. A few on there that aren't going anywhere any time soon though are a Big Box DMM and a BJFE Honeybee!

I really wasn't sure whether the $100-ish I spent on this (used) would pay off, but it has turned out to be my most trusted and useful pedal, bar none.

For my purposes:

Visual Sound Garagetone Axle Grease. Killer analog delay tones at a low price. I've yet to find a delay to replace it as my #1.

Boss CS3. It twangs, I twang.

I really miss my 1983 Small Stone phaser. The one that got away.

Here's the companion question to what started the thread: WHY are these your "best" pedals? Is it because of what they do that's different, or how they differentiate you, sonicly,from other players? Because they absolutely nail a sound you like? Because of their versatility? Because they are reliable and never let you down or disappoint? Because they are "immune" to other changes in equipment? Because they were an absolute bargain?

It doesn't have to be one of these, and your individual choices could be for any constellation of reasons. I'm just curious about why people's bond with a given pedal is somehow "special"in their eyes.
