  • Worst names of guitar pedals

    Some people do it right with these names of greek or egyptian gods.
    Other names are obviously just trying to be clever and wind up sounding pretentious. Like "Organizer" and "Brigadier".
    Many of the names also just have this marketing stench to them like "Ola".
    What happened to more descriptive, suggestive names like Big Muff, Super Fuzz, Tonebender, Flying Tomato, Super hard on, Tube screamer, Holy Grail, Swollen Pickle and Electric Mistress?

    Now we have names like "Big grey distortion"..
    but my least favorite of all has to be "Mojo mojo".
    It's sickening I tell you.

      lol mojomojo really pisses me off for some reason. I think it's because it sounds ridiculous when you say it out loud. They should've just named it Mojo Jojo

        Mojo Mojo is pretty lame... but I really don't have an issue with most of the other pedals you named.

            I hate all of skreddy's pink floyd themed pedal names. There's a million of them and they all sound the same to me. That's the only reason I never think of skreddy.

              Maybe it's a double entendre and less lame than we think.

                  Only a genius would make such a conjecture.

                      oh, and the FUHO gas begins! I'll be gooping it and naming mine the "**************** You Anne Frank Distortion".

                      How about the Philosopher's Tone? Whyever that's always bothered me. Dano with the food themed bucket. Way Huge crosses the line. Mike's Salty Romance Explosion (dwarfcraft). I take it back, that one is awesome.

                        I finally realized like a week ago that it was Philosopher's Tone and not Philosopher's Stone. To be fair I don't like compressors so i never paid attention.

                            How is Flying Tomato descriptive or suggestive? What am I missing here?

                              I like my Mojo Mojo.





                              Also, I think the TCE Rotweiler is a cool name for a high gain distortion pedal.
