    Mine is undoudbtedly my zvex super super 2 in 1. One stage of it is on all the time and it just extracts all the goodness and sparkle out of my amp and pickups. Second stage is the perfect boost, subtle or completely nasty! I have tried countless boutique overdrive/distortion/fuzzes on all ends of the price spectrum and, although some have been great pedals, nothing beats my orange ad30htc cranked even further by my zvex super duper 2 in 1. It is the only untouchable item on my pedalboard!

    And please - no tuners!

    Integral part of my tone, therefore most valuable: Fulltone OCD

    Lovepedal COT 50. On almost all the time..
    This is subject to change though.. new pedals are coming in and I haven't been able to test them with the band still.

    I think the most I ever spent on one pedal was my Fulltone Clyde wah. In second place, it was my JangelBox compressor.

    I use the JangleBox almost all the time, in all three of its tone settings too. So, I will say that it's my MVP.

    Anywhere is everywhere and nowhere is nothing.
    In the last 20+ years, I've had many pedals come and go, but the one constant has always been my Boss DM-2 Analog Delay at the end of the chain.

    CMATMODS Tube Slammer. This OD works the light grind, the heavy metal and it is not partial to my Tele. Strat or LP. Works at high Vol and at low Vol. and I can get it at unity, below or beyond. Just absolutely perfect.

    Boss Tu-..ops...! :Devil

    Now, responding right, I have 2 untouchables items on my pedalboard:

    Maxon OD-808
    Boss CE-2

    And then I have some "touchables" wich comes an go according mod:

    Mosferatu
    Rat Deucetone
    Marshall Drive Master
    Boss OD-3
    Ibanez Super Tube Screamer
    Boss Delay DM-3

    I wish I could have a XL pedalboard to put all of them, but I confess to lazy to carry it anyway, and I want o keep it simple too, no more than 5/6 boxes (including tuner...hush!) ;)

    +1 on the BJFE SBEQ.............this and a SHANNON PHASER are currently the only pedals I have. I have been through a ton of OD's and still haven't found one that works for me, although I did like the COT 50.:D

    The Tuner is pretty valuable, as is the graphic equalizer,

    The Tuner is pretty valuable, as is the graphic equalizer, which is used for solo boosts.

    Beyond that, I utilize a Keeley modded Boss CE-2 the most, for a little sweetening for some of the clean sounds.

    If MVP means never leaving the board, the one constant is my Peterson Strobostomp Virtual Strobe tuner. I use it as a standby when switching guitars and keeps me in tune at all times. Effectwise, it's probably my Fulltone Fat Boost.

    Ditto on the Analogman Bi-Comprosser. I never turn mine off! Either one side or the other is always switched on.

    Uhmmm.....
    1. I'd have to say my Klon. It's just flat out awesome.
    2. I also really dig the original Expandora. It can do so much.
