The first reply and I agree. They are built like a tank. The enclosures very, very durable.

James Brown’s design and features on some of his line is also impressive, as an aside.
Agree with that too. Terrific pedals you could also use in a rock version of Clue: "It was the manager backstage with the TightRock!"

Fulltone pedals feel built to last a lifetime.

Boss pedals are for sure well designed/indestructible.

I’ll also add

Analogman
Diamond

Both of those two use exceptionally high quality components and just feel super solid.

Boss pedals feel indestructible to me and I’ve never had one even give me an issue.

After that, MXR and Way Huge pedals are also very solid and cause no worry. My Barber direct drive is really well built too.

Incidentally, I have had several Boss and MXR pedals die on me. Most recently, an MXR bass compressor that was handled with kid’s gloves quit working. Not that they’re bad pedals, but I’d say their quality is standard and not in the upper echelon of well-built pedals. Strictly my own opinion, mind you.

Boss... I still use a CE-1 on occasion. Still works well.
Strymon
Wampler
Keeley among the few.

The only pedal I didn't care for was a HOF v1. Didn't care for the design of the footswitch. YMMV

Thorpy FX are built to British military spec allegedly.

Beetronics, Spaceman & JAM Pedals have some extremely well built guts.

Monsterpiece always has clean work.

Effectrode & Kingsley have tube driven pedals built like a brick s***house.

I've never had a ZVex or Earthquaker Devices pedal fail me.

I'm sure there are dozens more, I'm just going off the top of my head.
