    I dunno if this already talked about, but I was wondering, is there any boutique FX manufacture that MSRP around or under 150bucks? or to be extreme under 100USD?

    Ofcourse it depends om your location - but I think some Barber pedals might fit that category...

    But kind of by definition most are going to be more expensive...smaller production numbers and higher qaulity generally mean more money.

    I am in jakarta, Indonesia. Our market is still spoiled by Boss product. but I know some of my friend are looking for something different...
    Pricing always sensitive issue here, because low economy.

    The idea is to find one pedals that can bring to every gig..since gig usually using amps from sound rental company...

    Well, if you are looking for something different from Boss pedals, that will work relialbly and sound good at gigs, here are some more non-boutique recommendations:
    The current Marshall line of pedals is quite good (I have the Edward compressor and BluesBreaker II overdrive, the delay and reverb pedals from that series are also supposed to be good).
    The Danelectro Wasabi pedals are built sturdier than the smaller ones from Dano, and at least my Rock-A-Bye delay sounds great.
    Electro Harmonix has some nice stuff, too!
    And of course there's always the Digitech Bad Monkey for a great, inexpenisve OD choice...
