most reliable pedals? which brand

as the name suggests, which brand of pedal, based on, durability, sound quality, and reliability, do you find best?
#2
I heared that Boss Pedals should be really reliable and have a good sound quality...
I have a Behringer TubeOverdrive and it sounds good if I use it with my ValBee. But its plastic-case is... wuah! I don't want to write "****"! I know that some DigiTech-Pedals have strong metal-cases too and the sound quality is fine.

So I would recommend Boss or DigiTech...

Electro-Harmonix are a very reliable pedal.

AMT pedals. Covered in metal :p and they sound good.

Lee Jackson pedals sounds effing good, and looks solid. But I've never tried one.
Ibanez s540 with gold Schaller bridge and OMGGOLD hardware

Ibanez RGR320 with Lo-Edge Pro bridge and scalloped fretboard

Lee Jackson XLSC - 500

I'm going to vote against EHX, I've heard bad things about their Holy Grail's breaking easily

It really depends on what kind of pedal. EH make a nice chorus and reverb pedal, MXR has a nice EQ pedal and their Noise Gate isn't too bad either, Line 6 makes some really nice delay pedals.

I've always loved Boss pedals. Very reliable and heavy duty. Also I've had a Digitech Multi Effects for ages and it's lasted great.

those are a few very different questions. Durability/reliability are easily measurable but sound quality is subjective. Id say an Maxon/Ibanez Tube Screamer is a decent pedal to have. For distortion I like the video of the Landmine pedal thats on youtube.

Btw; this doesnt belong in the Electric Guitar forum.

Gibson Les Paul std faded, Godin LG

ehx pedals are notorious for falling apart
digitech (dod)used to have s(&**y switches and dodgy sound quality but are ok if more bland now(tho my whammy pedal disintegrated)
mxr are great
my dunlop crybaby is solid and awesome
and i have used several boss pedals as hammers
old marshall pedals are great.. the new silver ones not so
Shut up and play your guitar!
