Ok, why not call it simply "THE Box" to say anything else is not it.

Or "LA Boite" for a french cuisine mood...

Adjust it to your taste.

Where's the silver solder? I am in possession of titanium bottom plate screws that enhance second order harmonics if used with a Coleman gas generator for the power supply.

Also, the ckt must be covered in boutique goop. I have Vintage Elvis Vomit ( from med overdoses) that when gooped on the pcb, will give a unique Sunn Studios vibe to the ckt.

Sorry to ruin your fun but I suggest not using nothing "The ... Box" in the name. Very big european music shop has product line named just like that. And these are cheapos, for the masses, low budget. We don´t want anybody thinkin this product is like that.

How about LA Studio Excalibur Professional

We'll call it the "CIA Box"...... so secret is the mojo, that you can't even hear it. Nor can anyone else. But trust us, it's there :wink:

yours truly R&D dept. is already working on a tube-version of the
"no-gainer"; (who`d expect s.th. else?....)
as soon as the prototype is available, a copy of it will be sent over to
the "New at ROG" labs, to make a jFET implementation/emulation/sim...

(by passing the design thru a couple of departments/stages/phases (!), we could claim it to
be a "BBD" topology: Bucket Brigade Downhanded).

(anyone noticed, that up until now, the unit is capable of
True Zero Flanging?) :P  :lol:  :P

After all these secret weapons inside, you should add on the box: "Not tested on animals", or "Not tested on real people"

MusicToyz ("in stock - limited"),

ps: here`s wondering, which clone will follow first:

I have a question for R&D, why are you guys proposing to throw potential profits out the window in the form of TONE SUCKING (Gawd, they use opamps!!) components? I propose the base model should be a gooped up solid core wire, from input to output. This design features an extremely direct signal path, totally void of tone sucking components. Your fans won't even think your using a pedal, but you know better and that’s all that matters.

Yes! And a tube version from that!
"this is a 100% all-tube circuit that for optimum response and minimum coloration of *your* signal we have painstakingly made sure has no relation to the signal path whatsoever"

If anyone tries to remove the goop, the circuit must self-destruct INSTANTLY in a very stinky mess that gives off choking clouds of red smoke! Can do?

Well 'course!
That's what *we* know that battery is for ;)

Wow, is this a long thread!! All I wanted to do was build a distortion box and incorporate many of the "secret" mojo elements just for kicks. I'm still working on designing my circuit, then I was going to start swapping out components for the mojo ones. Of course, I'm only going to use the components that I actually thought sounded better, but I'm sure that there are parts that would make no difference in the resulting tone so I could probably use lots of funky stuff here and there -- just for the mojo factor.

I think this thread is pretty funny, but it is a little off from what I was originally looking for. But I did get a couple of good "mojo" ideas.

Don't forget that when the enclosures are sanded and prepped for finishing and need to be washed... make sure that they get a dip in the mighty Mississippi River. This will infuse the box with that elusive "Muddy Mississippi Water" vibe.

THis joke box you are talking about..

it exists, and it DOES sound good and sells a lot.
Z Vex SHO, Bad Bob, etc. They have the volume knob
attached but a buffer pedal DOES have it's uses and can improve
your tone.

Good things you cynics were not around 100 years ago, we would have missed all the fun PT Barnum gave us. Don't believe  a NOS tube sounds better than a new russian tube? Dont buy it! Save some of the good stuff for me, I can hear the difference.
