    I'm a huge sunn O))) nerd so I got the 1000-copy limited edition Life Pedal, even though I don't have a amp head anymore. Excited to try it out, probably once I get an amp head with my next paycheck.

    I love my Bad Monkey. It was a really cheap, but excellent, tube screamer that's no longer manufactured.

    I love my looper pedal for writing songs. Looking into grabbing this booster as my next probably. I also use a cheap compressor fairly regularly.

    The one effect that I love is the good old Cry Baby Wah pedal. If I ever get an electric guitar again, I will get one, along with a tuner & a looper.

    My 2 favorites right now are my Fargo Fuzz (designed based on an 80s Big Muff Pi circuit and assembled in a smaller pedal with custom local artwork on it) and a Green Russian Big Muff Pi (newer smaller housing version). The Fargo Fuzz blends with my guitar pickups and Tube amp to produce the perfect light and crunchy fuzz that still lets you explore a versatile selection of playing styles.
    The Green Russian has a thick bassy fuzz that's perfect for hypnotic stoner riffs.
    I use a Boss CS-3 and Boss DD-6 fairly often in combination with those fuzz pedals. As much as I like the DD-6 it also has occasional glitches where the delays noticeably stop like there was too much information put in and it crashes for a moment. Otherwise it's pretty easy to use and sounds nice.

    Unless I come across something special I think my next pedal will be an Equalizer pedal or a tuner. I was using a modeler as my tuner and recently took it off my board.
