    This kind of thread actually pops up pretty often... but it'd be hypocritical of me not to respond since I do it too.

    I'd say... Either Lovetone or Boss.

    Eventide would be a safe bet, too.

    Have to be EHX. Assuming I can also get a backup of everything, and I can get free replacements when they fail.

    Maxon, hands down. They have the best balance of variety and quality of any brand out there. There are certainly many other brands that make more exciting or unique or covetable pedals, but those brands typically only have a small number of pedals, and are usually just dirt variations. Or in the case of EHX, they have a huge unique variety but they all have so many flaws that they're not worth it to me. And there may be some boutique builders with higher quality standards, but I would even say the large majority of handmade pedals are not in fact better quality than the upper end of Maxons.

    I used to own 6 Lovetone pedals. I got them brand new when prices were relatively low, then they tripled in value.

    I was forced to sell them (at a hefty profit), due to a mistake on my employer's part which resulted in me oweing the U.S. Treasury over $4000...

    I'd love to have my Lovetones back, but now I can't justify their prices.

    Didn't we just do this?

    I find EBS stuff a bit too hi-fi for me and their modulation isn't the best, but they make solid stuff. Lovetone would be a good one. And a pedalboard full of Guyatone minis would be cool. Maybe with one biggie like the VTX or the Ultron.

    But if BJFE and Mad Professor count as one company (same designer after all) I'd go that route.

    Otherwise I'm with Bongo, I'd take Maxon

    Boss. Big variety, acceptable quality.

    Godlyke is a distributor, not a manufacturer.

    I answered this one seriously last time. Perhaps this time as well.

    probably EHX
  20. ToneCzar.

    Dove> Openhaus> Halophaze> Custom Super Reverb I'd have Ed make> EchoCzar.

    This of course would leave out the Whammy as I don't see Ed being able to clone one. Would a ToneCzar modded Whammy count?
