I'm a huge fan of the Roland RE-20 Space Echo simulator. It sounds are stunning and its tweakability lead to countless lost hours tooling around in the outer reaches.

I also love the analog Deluxe Memory Man. It has a beautiful organic sounding delay that is a slight notch above the RE-20.
You really should try the Timefactor, it'll change the way you look at delay pedals.

I wonder which road they're riding?
The housing is fine, it's the things sticking out of the housing that break. And the circuit boards inside.

My favorite pedal has to be the Nova Repeater. I love modulated delays and it's Cocteaus in a box (just need some reverb) when used with my Tele.

I also have a Blue Monster Growler which is a fuzz pedal with a boost function. It's the balls of my pedal collection.

Not a pedal, but...

Samson s-gate-4:

Not the coolest device, but with some imagination, it can be one of the most useful tool in a setup.

Currently enjoying the Strymon El Capistan. Only does tape echo & spring reverb (virtually speaking), but it does it very nicely...

Very interesting... but I've checked an image of the pedal and I haven't seen a spring reverb knob on it (??).

That's because the knobs have "hidden" second functions, accessible if you hold both switches down while twiddling. It would be nice if they'd marked these on in a differently coloured text maybe, but it's not hard to remember what they are in practise.

The Strymon site has all the details and some nice demos.

If it had a stereo in, I'd take it right away.

No prizes for guessing what it does.

Recently acquired one of these :

Totally amazing pedal, can make even the most basic single OSC monosynth sound like something else entirely.

If you are looking to buy an analog delay pedal, look no further:

The sound of this pedal with my Voyager is amazing. It has double the maximum delay time of other analog delay pedals, has adjustable modulation, self oscillates, and to my experience has the perfect tone. It's not too dark like some analog delays but also not too clean like a digital delay.

My Boss DD-6 probably covers more ground than anything on the rest of my board. But then it was the first pedal I've ever had and it's never been off my board, so maybe it's just 'cause I've had more time to figure it out.

My favorite pedal is the Boss PS-3. mode 3 for making a Souvlaki Space Station, mode 7 for faking a gigantic string section on guitar, mode 5 for faking organs on guitar, and mode 8 for making cheapo romplers sound like analog synths. The 'whammy'/exp pedal mode is the only one that sucks and I'm not sure why they made it so unintuitive.

Other than that, the only pedals I use for recording (aka not easily replacable by vsts) are the Boss RE-20 and the Biyang FZ-7 (which would be THE big muff/MT-2 killer if Akai or Alesis or whoever just licensed it knew how to advertise to the Zakk Wylde kids at all).

Fav rack is gonna be the Digitech IPS-33. shame mine took a dump.

Well played Cryabetes, I love Slowdive. I'm branching out from guitar to synth, and have a few pedals i'm using with my Miniak- Z.Vex Fuzz Factory, Boss Dm-3 and DD-3, EHX Cathedral Reverb, Micropog, and the Small Stone. I know it sounds like heresy, but I actually prefer the digital delay for quality of repeats and longer delay time
