    I can see your house from here.
    Two for me- the LS-2 Line Selector and a PS-2 Pitch Shift/Delay.
    The LS-2 is useful and was a good purchase several years ago.
    I bought the PS-2 new in 1988 for reasons unknown. I don't use it much but it's fun for getting crazy sounds.

    Back along I had a Blues driver, and Ce-2 chorus. Currently, have the white tuner but haven't used it in years ... not that I have anything against Boss. Prince sure loved them.

    I have several, four of which are on my main board right now. I love Boss pedals!

    MT-2w, BD-2w, DS-1, SD-1, GE-7,

    I recently sold the TR-2 and that keeps me out of the More Than Five bracket.

    I think I have four, but ten seconds ago I thought I only had 3 until I remembered I have an AW-3, so I might just as well have another that I’m forgetting, so I won’t vote.
    As far as I remember I’ve got:
    -Blues Driver (won it in a guitar center contest around 2012)
    -TU-3 tuner (got it for Christmas in 2013 I think)
    -AW-3 auto wah (got it for $20 on vacation in South Carolina a few years back)
    -MT-2 Metal Zone (bought it for super cheap last year— partially for the meme of it, and partially because it’s a fantastic pedal to run drum machines through for industrial sort of stuff)

    Edit: and just like that I realized I was forgetting at least two more, meaning I could vote for the “more than 5” option. I somehow completely forgot that the boss FV-30 is my absolute favorite volume pedal, and I have the high impedance version at the start of my electric board, and the low impedance stereo version at the end of my stereo acoustic rig.

    CE-2, had it the longest of any pedal I've owned.

    My BOSS EQ-200 is my always on pedal. It's the tone shaper I use with all of my electric guitars. This pedal lets me roll off high frequencies to eliminate ice pick from single coil pickups. It lets me roll of low frequencies to improve clarity from humbuckers and Filter-Trons. It also serves as a clean boost that gives me 5 watt cleans at volume from my Boogie. My EQ-200 doesn't sit on the floor like a pedal. It lives on top of the amp.

    I have over a hundred pedals and 100% non-Boss.

    I had a few and got rid of them in a great gear purge after an injury to pay bills. I kept a few pedals and have added back more than I sold, but have avoided Boss mainly because I like a stomp switch more than the Boss design. And I wanted different sounds and there are now a ton more choices compared to 10+ years ago.

    There are a few that I really like and want again, just haven't yet.

    I'd love if Boss offered them in a Hammond enclosure with a stomp switch, make it true bypass/switchable buffer. I'd quickly be several hundred dollars poorer.

    Being a Boss fanboi, I used to have the Boss GT-3, GT-6, GT-1, GT-100, then when the IR technology came around, I opted for the Headrush Gigboard because the GT-1000 was too expensive. When the GT-1000CORE came out, I bought one. However... I was disappointed with it. As a Boss fanboi, I wanted to like it. But, it wasn't working for me. So, I stayed with my Headrush.

    I have...

    SD-1, OD-3, RV-3, LS-2 (I'm in a Radiohead tribute band)
    TR-2, BF-2, BC-2, DA-2, SY-1 (No excuse for these five other than that I live in Japan and they are cheap here) with the bolded items currently in use on my board

    Never thought I'd find myself ranking high on this forum for number of pedals owned (2nd so far, unless I've miscounted)

    3C95CC93-3A20-4DBD-9FA5-3E5CC2B70C64.jpeg I’m down to one...my old Boss TU-2. I’ve tried everything and have found the TU-2 to be easy to use, reliable and I’m ok with it not being true-bypass. It’s gone from board to shoebox and back again countless times.
