    I think for me that would be the TC Electronics Chorus+. This model remained on my board for about 12 years before I replaced it with an Anolog Man. The second longest would barely hit the 3 year mark so hardly worth mentioning (yet).

    BTW - tuners don't count.
  2. EHX BassBalls and/or Bass MicroSynth. I'm not sure, but I love 'em both, and they're the oldest pedals on my board for sure.

    Interesting question, only because for me, it's also the pedal I use the least ...

    EHX Micro Pog.

    Not sure how long, but more than 3 years. Whenever I do you use it, I remember why I leave it on there :)

    Iron Ether Oxide - I've only been into effects for about a year now and this guy has been the only constant. Every time I think about selling it, I play it on a song and remember why I love it.

    Interesting that so far - each response is different - no one pedal stands out as a common, long-term favourite.
