    I'm getting a colorsound overdriver clone made, it needs a cool name, which will be across the pedal in cinemascope lettering.
    I could just call it "overdriver" but thats a bit boring.
    Any thoughts???My only idea was "riffdriver"
    Ideas please!!

    Technicolor Drive is good.

    If you like that angle there are tons of possibilities:

    Prism Drive
    Spectrum Drive
    Kaleidascope Drive
    RGB Drive
    Rainbow Drive :dude :D
    Huey (hee hee...get it?)
    Paint Can

    I actually prefer crazy names that hint at the sound, like Hellbilly, Mosferatu, or King of the Britians.

    Here's a few (just spitballing here...):

    Can o' worms
    Pandora's Box
    Sunday Driver
    Designated Driver

    Ok.... now I'm just getting sillly.

    No matter how clever the name, we will need to know the FIRST name of the guy who makes the pedal. We don't care about the last name. Because, usually when we talk about pedals, we like to say the guy's FIRST name, like we're best friends. For instance: "the ___ really cuts through the mix. ___ is a great guy to deal with!"

    I do like the cinemascope lettering idea. You're doing it by hand, right? :)

    Viagra. If note sustain lasts for more than 4 hours seek immediate medical attention.
