Name This Pedal Contest - Free Sausages....
« on: August 23, 2019, 07:59:18 AM »
Been working on something new for a few days.  Wanted to try a tube-based pedal...

So ended up going with a 2 stage Valve-Caster (VC 2.) with the extra "boost" mod.

Everything except the power jack is PCB mounted.  Laid out for a 1590XX.

I am to the point of doing the labeling, and cleanup...  and I just have not been very "inspired" to come up with a name..

Ideas come to mind--

The tube/toob/Twob thing.. similarly the boob thing.
2 stages... like a rocket maybe?
and just found this thought funny.. Arnold Schwarzenegger saying something like "It's not a TOOBER!!"... OK.  whatever.

Suggestions welcome please!  I need something to inspire the artwork.

PS, thanks to the peeps on here that have helped me along with this process with ideas/advice and tech support!

No affiliations. If I glowingly mention specific merchants or products, it is because I like them without having to be paid to like them.

Narrow it down... 

And, I am thinking of possible artwork/clipart as well.. since I only acid etch... I keep that in mind.

It's Not a Toober!
In Case of Emergency Break Glass
Bottle Rocket
Bottle Hoppin'
Schnitzengruben  -- although I like it... it is probably too obscure of a joke for younger folks.
Double London Underground
Double Trouble -- I'm a huge SRV fan, I like this one a lot.
Super Double Secret
Dopple Gainer
Heater Beater
Electron F-Bomb
Battle Bottles

Thanks guys.. I kind of had writers block on names... these are great.

Votes?

Now I have to sit down and walk thru the traces and make sure I got everything right.

Come up with a name, and finalize the labeling...
