The ghost of pedals present: DOD YJM308, soon to get the Analogman treatment; MXR Classic OD; Barber Direct Drive; Fulltone OCD; EHX Big Muff Pi w/ tone wicker; MXR Blue Box; Visual Sound Angry Fuzz.
The ghost of pedals past: DOD Death Metal distortion; Boss DS1; Boss OS2; Seymour Duncan Lava Box.
I'm sure others have come and gone, but those are the only ones my sleep deprived brain can come up with at the moment.
This is what I think. If you like it, keep it. If you don't, send it right back.

Let's see how clear my memory is... this should be a fun exercise.
DOD FX55B Super Distortion (you always remember your first)

Boss BD-2 (I kinda miss this pedal?)

As a child I played with Matchbox cars. I cherished them. Now it's pedals.

Hmm, let's see whether I can remember them all...
Barber LTD (my all-time favorite OD)
Barber 1/2 Gainer (two footswitchable versions of my all-time favorite)
ODR-1 clone (my second favorite)
Award-Session JD10 (the first really good low-gainer I got years ago)
Klon clone (seriously underwhelming)
FD2 clone (not bad, but the LTD kills it in the low gain dept.)
Digitech Fuzz (one of the worst pedals ever)
Tonebender fuzz clone
Fuzzface clone (amazing how many fuzzes I built, I don't really like using fuzz a lot)
Zoom PowerDrive PD01 (I own 2 of those - they are ODs but I use them as boosters - got a backup, because I love it so much as a booster)
ROG Professor Tweed (modded)
Red Llama clone
Germanium treble booster clone
Orman Mini-booster clone (modded)
Mosfet booster clone (modded)
Danelectro Wasabi Rock-A-Bye (delay with seperate overdrive channel)
don't own anymore (sold/lost/given away):
Barber Direct Drive (too much gain for my kind of music)
Digitech Bad Monkey
Marshall BluesBreaker II
Ibanez SixtiesFuzz SF-5 (my very first dirt pedal)
Ibanez Tubescreamer (the 1990s grey type)
Subdecay Liquid Sunshine (great, but I couldn't justify holding on to it, since I used my LTD much more)
I also bread-boarded quite a few other circuits, but never finished building them (the clones listed above are the only circuits that made it from bread-board to actual build...)

Fifteen for sure. And I'm just getting started!
The one I regret letting go the most was my Maxon OD-808. It had the richest harmonics ever.
The best thing you can do to increase your value as a guitar player is learn to sing. But most guitarists don't want to hear that, so we mod instead...hoping it will compensate.
