    After my '86 RAT, the DMM is a close second.

    It's actually not on my board (which holds 3 other 'permanent ' pedals) but first in line ( on the floor, before the board) is a 1998 Boss Blues Driver

    I don't use it on every gig ( depends on gig and amp)- definitely the oldest
    ( the other pedals aren't much younger)

    This one is unusual because it has the later period PCB with four delay chip sockets (made for the MN3008 chip), but was assembled with 2 MN3005 chips instead. Apparently EHX found some MN3005s and used them up on the new boards after they transitioned. So I sent it to Analogman for him to put 2 more NOS MN3005s in it, and now it has about 750ms max delay time instead of 450ms.

    Strymon Flint. Got it last Christmas but it’s always on and was a gift from my wife.

    I think it’s my MXR Phase 90...might be the Crybaby that I modded and personalized (making it a MWA-95)...

    Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter for ~20 years. Its contemporaries have been swapped/upgraded. It was the first pedal I seriously researched before purchasing.

    Boss GE-7, since 1991. Been using some variant of a Tube Screamer since the 80's but not the same model. I added an analog delay around 1998 and a tuner pedal to replace my Boss TU12 around 2009. I feel like four pedals are too many, but they serve me well.

    It's either my E.P. Booster or the Way Huge "Saucy Box". I do frequently use the SB but now that I have the Chase Tone Secret Preamp I use my E.P. Booster in a different way & not as often.

    I've used the same Dynacomp pedal I bought in 1979 for 41 years on every iteration of every pedal board I've ever put together. It gets replaced every once in awhile for some "new flavor" compressor, but always finds it's way back to the front of the line.

    My Maxon AD999 Delay. Bought it used for $130 about 6 or 7 years ago.

    The only other delay that I liked as much or better was the Analogman Delay which is very similar.
