    I've been on a sort of psychedelic and desert rock thing lately, playing around with lots of fuzz + vibe + delay (hoof reaper + micro vibe + obscura) and it's got me looking for some pedals that do unique "trippy" things in that arena.

    My list so far:

    -Catalinbread CSIDMAN
    -EQD Afterneath
    -Keeley Monterey
    -Zvex Lo-fi Instant Junky

    What else is out there?

    You need to try a phaser. Small Stone or Phase 90 are classic and affordable. Phasers are close to vibe, but different.

    Catalinbread Adineko. It's a psychedelic spaghetti western head trip in a box. Endless trance-out fun.

    ever considered a Ring Mod?

    Those things can def get trippy and since you mention the Lofi Junky, the pedal that comes to mind that has a little of both of those types of sounds is the Strymon Mobius. The Quadrature Algo is a Ring Mod and the Destroyer Algo can do the old scratchy, warbly record player sound in spades. And it has presets, so you can save and recall all the trippy goodness.

    Mellowtone Wolf Computer
    A/DA Flanger
    Montreal Assembly Count to Five
    FuzzHugger (everything is great, but for this I might suggest the AB-Synth, the Velcrobot, or the Phantom Arcade)
    Spaceman Sputnik (pricey but awesome)
    The Digitech Whammy

    Your tastes may vary, but I also like to incorporate the Boss Slicer (the big box) when I go space rock.

    Enjoy!

    I've just been searching around for a Danelectro Chicken Salad... Looks like they've discontinued it, which is a shame because for such a low price, that's a lot of vibe.

    Maybe get a synth pedal. The Sy300 is great, and can do lots of trippy stuff (and lots of non trippy stuff). I like sequenced ringmod waveforms and envelope controlled pitch bends for the craziness.

    The red witch synthotron was pretty fun when I tried it, and can do plenty of trippy low fi synth sounds with some trem and envelope filter thrown in.

    I'd like to try the bit commander, but the earthquaker rainbow machine seems pretty trippy.

    I'm guessing the pigtronix mothership can pull out the trips too.

    I saw a pedal called the psilocybe today, it's a phaser. With a name like that it had better sound extra trippy!

    It's a good one, an old HBE.

    Very chewy.

    I've been getting some pretty crazy sounds from my flint lately. 80's reverb with harmonic tremolo (which has phaser and chorus qualities) or either alone can take you to some good places
