this should be interesting..
what is the most crazy pedal you ever experience with ?
I enjoyed the Snarling Dogs Mold Spore, the Catalinbread Teaser Stallion (with Semaphore to control it) and the Zvex Machine & Fuzz Probe. The modulation on my Blackbox Quicksilver is mighty insane too so combinations of any or all of the above = insanity.
Lotsa noisy fun in those uniits :AOK
The Metasonix Butt Probe ranks very high in that category, as does the LAL Sick Pitch King (wish I still had that one), as well as the 3MS Triwave Picogenerator. Haven't tried any of the Mid-Fi electronics stuff yet, but I reckon they'd feature prominently in this category.
Right now the POG, though I just got my first Octavia and that's a pretty insane pedal to play with. I think I will try them together at some point this weekend. The Deluxe Memory Man gets lots of insane sounds as well, as do the Boss HR-2 and RC-20 (playing backwards w/ external footswitch)...
The old Pefftronics Rand-O-Matic comes to mind, which I always wanted to try... I just googled it and it seems there is a new version! This would be awesome with a ToneFactor or BargeConcepts feedback looper (there should be one with several loops/control sets in one unit, like 4 of 'em!)...

Moog Murf, E.H. Hog, or effector 13 disaster fuzz
Maestro Ring Modulator- the most wacked-oout warp machine I ever heard! I sold mine a few years ago for over $500 but kind of wish I still had it.
The Boss PS-3 can make some mighty strange noises.
Craziest I've personally owned is the Walco Sustainer. You play a note and for like a couple seconds nothing happens. Then an insane wall of noise starts coming out of your amp and building on itself. At least that was my experience with it. Even as a noise effect I think it's too rude!
Prob not too crazy compared to some of the pedals you guys listed but the craziest pedal I own is the Fuzz Factory
Weird enough on it's own, but in "swell" mode it is the ultimate ??confussion machine?? to put infront of auto-filters and other volume triggered effects.
It's also got some BIG-FAT-CHEWY goodness when run without octave/swell engaged
yup, and it works great on bass also.
My 4MS Noise Swash OD/Distortion with LFO can be programmed to play itself. Then as I play it replaces what was playing.
And the Lovetone Ring Stinger can be an Octave fuzz or fuzz Ring Modulator. It's LFO effects both. Switching between the two is insane.
Fatback, great clip. Would the BYOC version of the Boss SlowGear achieve that (in line with my discumbobulator, KR Doubler and one of my fuzz/OD/boost pedals rigged up in a similar manner)?
Tycobrahe Pedalflanger & Foxrox Octron.
+100 on Effector 13 :NUTS
Effector 13 is to pedals what Ed Wood was to sci-fi movies. :AOK
The Lovetone "?" Flanger, by a long way the craziest thing I ever plugged into. If a fly landed on a dial, the sound changed forever, sensitive does not acurately describe this pedal's response to the dynamics of what feeds it. It's a monster that I could not tame.
Hmm. I'm not sure. It might get close, but the interaction of the pedals wouldn't be the same. It would sound cool though.
I havnt played any more than about 4 months but i have gone though a few pedals.
the crazyest one i own right now and love the most...the magicstomp....best pedal in the world for my use.
does not even need an amp to work if ya think about it....
Nathan: would love to know more about the zvex machine:angel
