    I'm a Bad Monkey fan.
    I've found so many cheap pedals to have plastic casing, but the Monkey is solid as well....

    At. $49.99 with free shipping from MF on ebay, the DOD 250 is ridiculously cheap.

    For under 25 bucks delivered, the Myomorpha (cheap Asian mini pedal) is worth every penny. Doesn't sound like my white face, but it does the Rat thing pretty well. Metal case, nice big stomp switch. Had it a few weeks now, gigged it and no-one noticed. Pretty nice for a cheapo.

    Arions were being sold out at US$20 each a few years ago. My SCH-Z and MTO-1 are still working fine.

    I like the GFS Delay. About $50. In fact I have three of their pedals and all sound good.

    Ibanez DE-7. Very nice warm analog sounding delay.

    Okko Diablo. Sorry... I'm just trying to kid myself that I didn't just fork out so much on one pedal. :oops:

    Another vote for the LPB-1.

    Nobody has mentioned the Arion Tubulator, which I bought new for $12 about 10 years ago.....

    I do love the Dano deli lineup, still have the Tuna Melt, Fish and Chips, and the PB&J.

    EHX Satisfaction fuzz: surprisingly good sounding fuzz for CDN$60 new, and way less hiss than some other EHX products I've owned.

    Behringer Superfuzz: basically a clone of the long discontinued Boss FZ2 for CDN$25 new. I picked up an FZ2 for cheap last year, and the Behringer sounds almost identical. The Boss is better built though, of course.

    +1 DanEcho. Forgot about that one. Haven't used it in a while. Great set and forget live pedal. Was on my band board for 6 years or so. Plastic jacks and all. It's just got such a sweet warmth going on. Great delay pedal.

    Behringer Blues OD is great for the money; half the price of the Boss SD1.

    But twice very little still isn't much - so I'd still say the Boss is better value.

    LPB-1 is pretty decent.. Its not a pedal I use regularly being a scooped metal head guy, but what it does is awesome when I crank it into my already cranked Vox.. $20 not bad..

    I would've said my $25 Behringer Boss HM-2 knock off, which nails the Boss almost to a tee.. But there is no way in hell that plastic casing would survive gigging night after night so it stays home for studio work, while the real HM-2 stays on my board to do its job it was born to do..

    Daphon analogue delay, 35Aussie $ and it works reliably, sounds terrific.
