    strictly in fun, folks, so have at it if you choose:

    1. You get to name it,
    2. What would it do?
    3. Any cool knobs?

    Like:

    Miss Remember
    a Fuzz Delay with
    "build" and "conflate" knobs

    Feel free to create your own celeb effect pedal for anyone... Kanye, etc.

    I've never thought very much of him, but I'm still not seeing the joy in kicking a guy while he's down....ya know?

    Don't forget the "presence" knob, goes from 0 to -forever. It is now set to -6 months.

    Make your guitar sound like something it's not.

    Being that he's on a leave with no end in sight at the moment I would make the pedal a bypass switch. Not true bypass though. HEYOOOO

    Gotta be a distortion pedal.

    (And if we're still just talking the helicopter ride, I'm not in the fire him camp).

    Well, it would be painted the same color as the helicopter, have a button to simulate the feeling and sound of getting hit by an RPG and a second button that serves as an "OH- CRAP-WE-BETTER-BAIL-OUT" switch.

    Well, I don't know what it does but it probably doesn't have a number of features that it was promised to have......

    I'd make it so you pay upfront for it and I tell you it's a 6 month waitlist. Then your money gets suspended in my bank account for 6 months and since I'm not going to be on the internet, TV, radio or answer the phone number you'll have, you'll have no recourse except to bitch about it on internet forums while I lie on the beach for 6 months. After that time, I'll resurface, apologize, resign and disappear again.

    Naah, that'll never work in the real world...

    It would give anyone playing through it the ability to play very familiar songs that we all thought that we knew that were in fact totally improvised.

    He wrote down a quick circuit for fun on a napkin during his NASA years, supposedly found by a cleaner that was an Arbiter Electronics employees 3rd cousin.

    Later to be known as the Fuzz Face.
