    I have only the e-lady and love it. I believe the price to quality ratio in this case fits the purpose + it doesn't take much real estate on my board.

    For me, it’s either the Blues Crab or Blues Mood — it depends on how much gain I’m going for.

    The Blues Crab is a clone of the long out-of-production Marshall Bluesbreaker v1 pedal while the Blues Mood is a clone of a Keeley modded Boss BD2. Nice mild to mid gain at a cheap price. What’s not to like?

    I do enjoy my Rage Machine — it has a ludicrous amount of gain.

    Honorable Mention to the Lofi Machine because you won’t find a cheaper Bit Crusher pedal. (now if I could just find a musical use for it)

    I liked them well enough when they are $60 and below. At $100 I perceive them to be the same product that is now over priced and I buy the MXR and Boss options for the same $100.

    I have a few of their Preamp pedals. They serve their purpose but don't see them in the same category as Boss etc...

    Only have the Echoverb. I really wanted a tap tempo digital delay, and I got a b-stock deal on a mint one. It’s reverb sweep is a bit noisy but it seems to have a (quiet) sweet spot that sounds really good with a slap back in the delay. For the price and size commitment, it’s been fun to play with.

    I have the Black Secret, the Elec-lady and the Lo-fi Machine. I think most of the gain pedals are pretty good in their own way. Back when I prefered low gainers I thought about getting the Pure Boost. If I was looking for a simple chorus pedal, I'd get the Ensemble King. I have been thinking about buying the Trelicopter. I do have another tremolo and a couple of amps that have one so I'm still thinking....

    I don't have any individual pedals, but I've got both the GE-200 and GE-300 modeling boards. The 200 lives in my studio, and I use the 300 for gigs.

    Seriously underrated stuff IMO.

    I've always presumed that Mooer pedals (the original minis, at least... not their newer fancier designs) were pretty much the same as those from Donner and a dozen other rebranded chinese pedal lines... which are cheaper, so I buy those.

    But they clearly used that as a way to launch their business and are now making some more advanced, original products. Good for them.

    Donner all day! Deluxe Tuner>Boost Killer>Yellow Fall...all I need. Same pedals. More taste, less filling.

    that boost killer is awesome. I've got a Spark on the way, and I really can't see how it can be any better

    I agree Mosky and Donner tend to be better than Mooer

    (I only buy Mooer when there isn’t a Donner equivalent — it happens)

    I’ve owned four of them, and currently have two. The most used by far is the Radar. Great little piece of kit for what it is. The stock IRs can’t compare to the OwnHammer and ML Sound Labs files I’ve loaded, but once set up, it’s awesome.
    The other one on my board is a SkyVerb reverb pedal. It does a nice mild reverb effect, which is all I want, at present. However, for those who like freaky reverb fx, it becomes unnatural sounding. I felt the same about the ShimVerb, although it was even less versatile.
    The other Mooer, since sold was the Hustle Drive. I really wanted to like this OCD clone, but it just had terrible drive.
    As for Donner, I tried them once, and never will again. I ordered a Deluxe tuner from them, direct from China. The first one arrived and it just would not track the notes. I contacted Donner, and they just sent a second, making the first a door stopper. The second arrived and had a faulty display, but it also tracked poorly, albeit better than the first. Junk.

    I have the Yellow Comp, which ultimately replaced my CS-2, a feat I didn't think was possible.

    I have:

    • Reecho (nice but noisy)
    • Black Secret (very, very good)
    • Orange phaser (hmmm... undecided)
    Thinking about another drive, maybe a bit less gainy. Undecided between Hustle, Blues Mood and Blue Crab. This is for use with a Blues Cube amp.

    Or the two I have my preferences as a pedal is the Black Secret.

    On the other hand the Green Mile actually gets used more while playing as it suits what I do better.

    I’ve had a Hustle Drive and a Reecho on a few boards. I like them both.

    I’ve also had an Echoverb, Pure Boost, and Soul Shiver. Not too bad.

    Can anyone describe the difference between the Blue Crab and Blue Mood, sonically?
