    Diamond Compressor. NIB and was at a local shop that mainly does used books but also vinyl, musical instruments, and other items on trade. I turned in a bunch of books for store credit and got the pedal for no cash out of pocket. :)

    Joyo TS clone. Joyo OCD clone. Joyo US Dream (Riot Clone). I think I paid 35 or 40 CAD for each new. I honestly don't understand why anyone would spend huge money on pedals. The difference between a Riot and US Dream is so small there is really no way to justify buying the real thing. The Joyo TS is a TS. Why would anyone spend more than 60 bucks on a tubescreamer?

    MIMIDI Delay micro pedal $19.99 Amazon Prime. I use it with my Legendary Pignose. It fits inside the Pignose housing with Velcro to hold it in place. Also, stored with a couple of daisy cables and 9v battery. It goes with me where I don't have ac power (camping, etc.). It's a pretty dynamic little pedal for the price and this use. Gives that Pignose some depth when playing calls for it. Oh, yes, I bring an electric and an acoustic on my outdoor adventures and road trips.

    Boring answer, but a TC Polytune Mini 3 Noir. Aside from the obvious, the built-in Bonafide is invaluable.

    Probably my Lovepedal Amp 50... I think I paid $60 for it?

    It’s such a good sounding pedal and simple with just the single knob. It’s pretty dynamic too. :aok

    A 1980s boss DS-1. I got it for $30. The tone knob didnt work and it was a little dirty but some soldering and deoxit fix it right up.

    I have a couple rotating fuzz spots on my board. My DOD Carcosa ($75) and SUF Green Russian ($85) both spend time in it.

    I bought three because of this thread also: Mosky Plexi M; Mooer E Lady; Caline Pure Sky. The Mooer E Lady didn't work, so I sent it back. Hope to get the new one tomorrow. The Mosky and Caline sound fantastic.

    I love my BBE Wah pedal. It's everything I've ever wanted in a wah and sounds just right to my ear. I was able to score that thing for only $70 used, cheapest pedal that I currently use.

    Recent Pure Sky convert here. Sounds so good! I also have a Mosky B Box that is also terrific. Their Klon klones are pretty nice as well.

    Caline makes a BB Preamp clone too, Orange Burst (?) supposed to be nice also. The Calines I have or had seem to be better quality than say Mosky or Joyo, although they all have good stuff. DO I feel bad they are clones of boutique builders? A little. Just ;O)

    I bought a Caline Pure sky for a friend.

    I just bought one for myself. 26 dollars and sounds like a dream.

    This is an absolute no brainer for me. I'm floored by how good this pedal sounds. Add the fact that it cost me $70 shipped and I was allowed to pick the color of the box, led, and the bezel that holds the led.... :D

    I recently bought one, as well. It's an excellent fit for what I play, from low gain drive for blues or as a clean boost. I like having the bass and treble controls, to help with tone shaping.

    Joyo American Sound for $25 Canadian used.

    The switch died, but I disassembled it and cleaned it and now it's working great. Incredible pedal.

    Honorable mention to:
    TC Mojomojo $60
    Digitech Bad Monkey $60
    Boss FDR-1 $60
    Dano Fish&Chips $60

    (I seem to have a lot of $60 pedals !)
