    Boss SD-1 comes on and off the board and mainly used as a boost with mids. I’ve bought and sold and bought the Barber Direct Drive at least 6 times. Between it and an LTD/Gain Changer, I have found every bit of what I need. Sounds great into Fender or Marshall voices amps.

    Boss BD-2 Blues Driver. The first pedal I bought. It just works. There is a reason it's one of the biggest selling dirt pedals ever.

    I have been noodling for over 30 years and keep changing all the time.

    I currently rotate through an 80's RAT, a BOSS DS-1 (very usable as an OD at low gain settings), a BD-2, and a Mooer Blues Crab.

    I've tried but not been satisfied with the TS-9, Timmy, and BOSS-OD-3, though they seem like crowd pleasers for others.

    KoT, because it is the king.

    Works with anything. My fiance even runs her hair-dryer through it for superior volume and shine.

    Honey Bee and Timmy an undefeatable combo on my board for about 5 years now I think, maybe more. Still looking for the third box to complete the trifecta, that will sound good fed into the honey bee and also provide a contrasting overdrive sound on it's own. Picked up a king of tone clone the other day, based on the responses here, may be just the ticket. :)

    Chase Bliss Brothers. There are just sooo many sounds in there it’s hard to get bored. I also love being able to save and recall presets via MIDI.

    1) Silver Klon's been on my board for about 12 years.
    2) My OCD v.1 which I bought the week it came out.
    3) But I'm partial lately to my Timmy which I bought 10 years ago - I think it will displace the OCD.

    I've bought two new OD's in the last month, but I'm still digging those golden oldies.

    Keeley BD2. its more a grab n go/back up pedal to my #1 (Kingsley Jester).
    I like its range. and it generally just works with anything i put either side of it.

    ive had the one i have since '06

    No, I have a BB Plus as well which is also great, but I prefer the MB. The BB Plus is more compressed
    to my ear.

    Three come to mind...

    Lovepedal Amp 11 - it has come and gone three times, but the big box version is here to stay.
    Barber Gain Changer - for my last band, it lasted as my primary OD pedal for over 2 1/2 years... No pedal has ever done that before.
    Keeley 1962x - the best MiaB for my needs and I tried so many. It's so good I even bought the standard version for small board.

    For me it’s the Blackstone Appliance OD.

    I have 2. Wampler Tumnus Deluxe & Boss OD-3.
    Tumnus Deluxe to boost the Dirt chanel on my DSL40C.
    OD-3 to boost the clean chanel.
    Simple as that.
    One $190 pedal and one very underrated pedal that goes for $40 used in my country!
