What are some pedals you think are under-rated / sleepers?

    I'll start.

    EHX Cock Fight.

    I have pedals that I've paid 10x more for on the same board, and I can always find ways to incorporate the Cock Fight and get some wicked sounds from. The fuzz in it is surprisingly good (I completely assumed it to be something I wouldn't engage) and the ability to fine tune the EQ/Tone using the knobs OR use it as a classic wah using an expression pedal, make it super versatile. It's cheap as dirt, makes a ton of great quality sounds, and does more than pedals twice it's price in the same category.

    Super useful in a lot of different ways, you also get a nice buffer and doesn't use much space.

    Still a mystery to me why people aren't talking about that pedal.

    Question is underrated by whom?

    I think the Alex’s Productions Sunbeam Magic Drive is excellent. But few here even know the builder exists, so they have never tried it to “rate” it.

    The masses I guess.. the "effects pedal" community in general. For instance I'll see posts for Chase Bliss, Strymon and the like all day, and a bunch of favored fuzz pedal builders.... but I can't remember the last time I heard anyone talk about the Cock Fight, or seen it on someone else's board.

    I guess that's why it says "sleeper" too

    Way Huge Drive.

    An incredible, wonderful dirt pedal. Basically a Sonic Distortion clone, but with more dynamics, headroom, and a usable tone pot. Stacks like a bitch.

    DOD Gunslinger. This will always have a place on my pedalboard.
    Heavy Electronics Grind Fuzz. I've only ever seen two of these locally and I own one of them.

    JHS MilkMan- personal fave. Tiny footprint. Great variety of slapback-specific delay with dedicated repeats mix/EQ/length knobs and a separate footswitch EchoPlex Pre style boost. Used 100$. I throw mine right before volume pedal and use the boost for volume swells...cause they’re never loud enough.
