A few that I have built I'll never sell, a couple were challenges to build, and they sound cool. Aion Blueshift (Boss Dimension C chorus), Madbean Naughty Fish (Mutron III), Madbean Uber Tuber (mini triode overdrive), Madbean Aquaboy (Boss DM-2 analog delay) and my DOD Phasor 201, original case from 1979, circuit is a GGG Phase 45 clone I built as the original circuit was ticking and I didn't want to desolder anything to leave it original. The rest I could sell tomorrow, and just build more :)
Edit: I probably won't sell my Aion L5 preamp, just because I wouldn't get what it's worth in parts, never mind labor and time lol. Same with all the 1590A's I've built, because they're small and were hard to assemble and I cover everything I'd need with them, fuzz (BMP), OD (Klone, TS), boost (Rangemaster, LPB-1, Fat [email protected]), compressor (Flatline optical, Orange Squeezer), delay (Deep Blue), tremolo (Colorsound) and phaser (Phase 45).

Earthquaker Devices Dispatch Master:
Hall Reverb and Delay. Chet Atkins slapback in a box.

Catalinbread Topanga:
Great Spring Reverb emulation.

Nobels ODR-1:
They call it a “Transparent Overdrive“, and I agree.

TC Electronic Hall of Fame Mini:
I use TC’s Plate reverb emulation for my default reverb.

Boss DM-2W:
Analog delay. A very natural sounding delay which I occasionally use alone, in place of reverb.

Can you share with me which builders you've bought from?
Shoot, I don’t know who they were at this point?
None grew into brand names except Big Knob did and Chicago Stomp Works are favorites that may have started as hobby builders.
These three came off eBay from hobby builders, great pedals using Aion or Madbean boards, with the one on the left I think being a totally hand wired build of the Fix’d Fuzz Deluxe.

Strymon Flint - the reverb is always on and the tremolo is the only modulation effect I truely need.
Strymon El Capistan - I got a few delay-pedals, but the El Cap is like.....bathing in the delay.
T-Rex Gull Wah - took me 30 years of playing until I got into wah, tried some, this is my favorite.
Hudson Dual Broadcast - different to all drive-pedals I know, but it cuts through the mix like nothing else.
Keeley Monterey - mainly for the fuzz, also for the rotary, the octaver is a nice plus.

I have an analog double delay pedal I built.

It’s two way huge aquapuss pedals in a single enclosure. Each pedal is modified to have double delay time and modulation. It used four original MN3005 chips.
