Effects pedal name ideas??

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I’ve just built a DIY pedal which sounds a bit like a cross between a Tube Screamer and an Overdrive pedal (very Blues sounding) and all the names I’ve come up with are a bit pony........Blues Overdrive, Blues Screamer, Dirty Blues Driver, Dirty Blues Box

See what I mean!!

Please post any ideas for names that you don’t mind if I use............👍

Tubedrive or Scroverdrive both sound just wrong 😉

Tuberdrive, with a picture of a potato on it for good measure.

Or Tüberdrive, because adding an umlaut makes any word sound heavier.

I'd say just paint it a colour or give it a number.

I like a Fuzzface or a Big Muff as much as the next man, but I personally feel that the whole pedal name thing has gotten way out of hand.

I agree some of the names are just over the top especially Metasonix pedals are named things like Butt Probe, Foreskin Soup and Scrotum Smasher and some are just plain weird and have nothing to do with the pedal at all like Swollen Pickle, Fat Sandwich, Aqua-Puss, Pork Loin and Pork and Pickle??

I just want a quite normal sounding name but I can’t come up with anything that sounds good?? And preferably something that hasn’t been used before just incase I decide sell it down the line (no copyright infringement)??.........🙁

In that case you could just watch the technical credits at the end of a 1960's James Bond movie and note the first names which will be mostly Bob, Derek, Keith, Brian etc.

I was kinda joking but because pedals have such random names now I’m surprised someone hasn’t called one that before!!.........😀

Blue Wail

Blue Scream of Death

Screaming Blue Murder

 

I did think of Screaming Blue Murder but when I did a mock up it was a bit too big to fit on the pedal........👍

Why not both? Yellow number 1, brown number 2 etc.

Or you could combine the random names thing with the whole pre-apocalyptic shouty thing and call it Stormin' Norman.

Personally, I'd go with Brian. You can then have a whole load of others in the range..... Dave (that'll be a compressor), Bob (modulation of some sort), Jeremy (Over drive), etc, etc

alternatively, you could name the other pedals in the range Florence, Dougal, Zebedee, Dylan, Ermintrude, Mr. McHenry.....

I'd go with 'Dirt Box' :D

If this is the name chosen please let me know, as I’m sure the guitarist in my mates band, Dirt Box Disco would happily use one.
