Effects with misleading names

I've got a Catalinbread SuperCharged Overdrive and I love it, but there is nothing overdrive about it. It is a distortion pedal. The Tube Screamer sounds like a name for a distortion pedal, but it is clearly an overdrive.

I didn't try a SCOD for the longest time because my Hot Cake and OD808 had me covered for overdrive. I stumbled across it when I was looking for distortion and saw some of the other pedals it was being compared with.

What other pedals might people be missing out on because their name sounds different from what they do?

Crybaby's do not, in fact, make small children cry.
Way Huge pedals aren't actually that big.
The Hot Cake is in no way edible.
Big Muffs are not, as it turns out......</snip>

Well it does clearly state that it is 'Super Charged' right there on the box...

:p

My screwdriver is useless for driving screws.
My Pink flesh is black and kind of hard.
My psilocybe although tasting terrible has not lead me to one mind altering revelation.


Skreddy Mayo is terrible on sandwiches.

All my fuzz pedals are bald.. no fuzz at all..:eek:

You just don't get out enough: the Fox pedals were ALL fuzzes (fuzzy?)... There's no flanges on my HF2, high or low. My Playboy HFO doesn't make bunny girls appear. I got my Diamond delay immediately after I sent my money. My MXR Pitch Shifter not only doesn't pitch, it stays resolutely in one place!

My Cherry Red OD doesn't taste like red cherries :(
My Lovetone Meatball doesn't work when submerged in tomato sauce
My Lovepedal eternity got sold off a month after I got it (j/k)
My Openhaus didn't help sell our house when it was for sale
My halophaze didn't help me beat halo 3

These are all really bad, so just ignore them, please.

You obviously have never hear ME play one!

Not only can I make small children cry, but at the same time curdle milk, call moose, wilt flowers, and make grown men tear out their hair.

The Vibutron is misleading just read the last Harmony Central review but if you're literate you're okay. :)

The Decimator, while not exactly an "effect" does not decimate, according to any of the senses of the word.
