    Tube Yeller. Yellow pedal that's a beefed up Tube Screamer. Graphics kind of like this, but a vacuum tube instead of a hand and maybe facing in the other direction:

    The Faker. A rather non-descript stomp box that makes the user sound better than he actually is.

    Rock One Billy - combination slapback delay and oil can reverb. Shaped like a '57 Bel Air hotwheels car, and the hood scoop is the switch.

    Wha? Pedal.

    A multi-effects pedal will 99 unusable pre sets and an impossible to use interface for creating your own.

    I think I have one of those.

    I always liked "hairy".

    Marmite Crumpet, British sounding pedal, although I'm not sure what kind of British sounds it would make.

    The Chime-Diggity. A combo circuit combining compression, blendable octaver, subtle chorus and tone control for a faux jangly 12-string vibe. I've stacked these effects with some success, but you need a light hand.

    The Mullet,
    Has two knobs, Front and Back which blend a reed type distortion and a sweeping stereo chorus. Also comes in a rackmount version.

    Cork Sniffer

    It has a straight wire from the input to the output, and three 20-turn vernier pots that aren't connected to anything.

    I actually wanted to have a pedal that made a guitar sound somewhat like a Clavinet (the keyboard at the intro of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" and Jonny Lang's "Lie To Me"); talked to several electronics dudes and none of them had the desire or vision to attempt such a venture.

    I even drew a markup of the pedal's looks (not the circuit board, though)...named it the "Clavinator".

    I eventually figured out how to get a similar vibe/sound with an extremely tweaked EQ pedal and a Phase 90, while using a weird fingerpicking technique. When my EQ pedal died, I soldiered on with the Phase 90 and the picking technique. Close enough for my goofy band.

    I'm a little intrigued by the Electro-Harmonix keyboard emulators: B9, C9, MEL9, and KEY9. I'm pretty sure you could get come Clavinet type sounds out of one of those.

    It's just that they're made by Electro-Harmonix.

    Chicken Pickeler - The Chicken Picker in a box; delay reverb and compressor in the right order and correct settings to get you that classic old country tone. Just add a Tele, clean amp, and some spring fingers.

    One button, no knobs or switches. Just a print of your own face on the front.
    A push of the button mutes everyone else in the band.

    The Guitar Hero

    Basic five knob Shredmaster clone, but with a blue tooth mute feature that allows the singer or band leader (or drummer for that matter) to mute the lead guitar when it gets too heroic.

    The 420.
    Adds chime, reverb, and a touch of slapback delay for those reggae tunes.

    Tiny Elvis pedal. Every time you step on it, it hollers "hey man!"

    The Baloney Donkey- A mid hump overdrive pedal. Takes 47 watch batteries and is too big for a pedal board.
