    Im wondering if there are any gems out there that sell for less than or close to $100. Anything that you would consider a must have for the reasonable price.

    Ibanez DE-7. Awesome little delay with a convincing analog emulation mode. I bought one for $45 and one for $35.

    A lot of the little plastic Dano pedals are great too. Like the French Toast, the Fish n Chips, and the Fab Flanger is also good.

    Lots of good things said about the OD-3. Supposed to sound more well-rounded and less mid-heavy than a tubescreamer. I think new for about $80

    Digitech Hardwire Tube Overdrive. does a great tubescreamer sound and has a mod switch to add more gain, 2 band EQ is very responsive.

    I like my Devi Ever Hyperion because I can play distortion and fuzz at any volume especially really low volume or the headphones and it sounds exactly the same. My other pedals only sound good with the amp cranked and I can't do that all the time at home.

    All of those listed and Boss SD-1, Dano cool cat vibe, Boss DD-3, Digitech Bad Monkey. You can usually find the Fulltone Catalyst and OCD right at/around $100 too. All very cool pedals.

    Bad Monkey and GFS Brownie. Both sound great and are far better than their $50 price tags would indicate.
