    I was given a broken EHX Graphic Fuzz by someone.

    Not only is it pretty big, but it's also going to be a big PITA to fix it, too.:mad:

    I think Helix is technically my answer, but probably not what you are looking for. Big Sky and TimeLine are the biggest pedals in my board otherwise. Boomerang is huge, but it is not on the board.

    biggest is the original size Holy Grail reverb, unless the Stereo Pulsar is as big.

    My biggest single purpose pedal is a Maestro Phaser. Here's a pic of it beside a MXR Phase 90.

    the Tube Driver, not exactly eee-uuuuuge, but larger than average...the only pedals in this photo that are still on the active board: the Tuner and the Tremolo; life goes on...

    Probably my Soldano GTO which is a two 12ax7 distortion pedal supposedly being the same circuit as the dirt section of the Soldano SLO. Massive and heavy with just V/G/T knobs. It's the first version with the built in AC transformer.
    I also have a Samson era Matchless tube ABY pedal that's similarly big and can boost individual outputs.
    I really never use either of them any more now that I fell into the pedal board trap!
    Got a Fulltone Choralflange and even that's too big for a board, plus I'm just not needing those sounds enough to give it space.
    I used to love the VS Rt 66 and also have a Jeckyll & Hyde but those have never been on a board, used them before on the floor though.
    Almost anything you need to do to a guitar signal can be crammed into a vintage MXR size case and that works for me.
    I do run an AD900 on my board though because it's pretty much the best AD I've found.
    I bought a smaller 18v first gen AD-80 but find the mix knob setting between off and too much is hard to get just right so it's not in use now.

    Biggest is my Strymon El Capistan. Not a fan of unnecessarily large pedals.

    I have two vintage Tube Drivers and had an even older one, also have a Radial tube dirt pedal and had an Ibanez Tube King and a couple of others including a Bad Cat that popped loudly and the Soldano I mentioned above.
    Reached a point where I feel I can hit the first preamp tube in the amp with a SS pedal and get actual tube dirt without having a tube on my board. Can't say I'll never go back though and I'm not selling my tube drivers.
    Forgot I also have an old Chandler/ Butler rack mount Tube Driver.

    Tube dirt pedals al have a varying amount of noise and my favorite of the four Tube Drivers was also the noisiest.
    The Soldano V1 has a rep for being noisy due to the transformer proximity to circuitry but mine is not really noisy.
    Muffs are wickedly noisy but some of mine are quieter than others.
    Again, some of my favorite pedals are sadly noisy little buggers.

    I just remembered, I had one of these.in College ( late 1970's) and did not use much.
    In 1980 I had my first guitar/amp/pedals stolen ( in basement) after crazy Halloween Party, but THIS was not with the stolen stuff.
    Never used it again, and I sold it way too cheap in the late '90's!

    Not counting my Cry Baby (which sits, rarely used, in the spare-pedals drawer) it would be my Grand Canyon, followed by the DIY Triangle Muff.

    Right now I'm using an old Digi-Tech RP 250 for reverb and low to mid range OD/Distortion. But, I've been researching and I'm about to add a couple of "regular sized" pedals and get rid of it. Planning to add a Digi-Tech Hardwire CM-2 Tube Overdrive and possibly a Joyo Tube Screamer clone. I'm on a tight budget, but, haven't decided on the best budget priced reverb box. My amp has no reverb.

    I remember a band mate getting one of those when they first came out. We were blown away.

    1970s Morley RWV Rotating Wah. 15 pounds! Got it at a guitar show around Akron Ohio about 1985 for the princely sum of 40 dollars. Works great still. Also have a Boss CE-1 from late 70s guitar shop.
