Here is my two cents worth;

TritonTrem
Triton Tremolo

In Greek mythology, Triton is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite and lives with them in a golden palace in the depths of the sea. He rides the waves on horses and sea monsters and he carries a twisted conch shell, upon which he blows either violently or gently, to stir up or calm the waves. Triton is represented as having the body of a man with the tail of a fish, but sometimes also with the forefeet of a horse.

My favorite so far is "The Ripple Effect" from SolderBoy, that has a very unique quality to it.  Not to harsh or soft sounding.  It is like the name fuzzface, very unique and catchy.  If you pick "The Ripple Effect" maybe you could add a teensy bit of echo which would suit the name better and also make the effect more appealing to musicians.(almost like a slapback echo/reverbish) :wink:

If you want to get really catchy and play off of "the ripple effect" name you could label the reverb/echo pot  "Splash"

As for my suggestions only ones i could think of was something like "whiplash" if it is a really throaty heavy sounding tremolo or some kind of name that refers to those little Hawaiian Hula Girl Dancers you put on the dashboard of your car that go "wobble wobble" for a softer smoother sounding tremolo.(Come on Aron, there's gotta be a Hawaiian name for tremolo.)


Another idea that might spark a name is a name that summarizes the relationship between the Moon and the Sea. You know, how the Moon pulls the ocean water to one side, then the other side, that is why there is tides.  (Thought of it while listening to an album called Electric Ladyland,
Maybe you guys heard of it?)

Moonbeams, Moontide, Riptide, etc..(<------i know they suck :lol: )

I can't really think of any good names, :cry:  but maybe i sparked some inspiration in someone by my lengthy post. :wink:

Oh yeah, the Belly Dancer by Jimbob was a good one.

Now on to my variants.

First of all, you have the I-Ran-Out-Of-Names-For-My-Pedals variant. :)

- Shaker-Maker

- T.N.T. ("That Nasty Tremolo" (or any other adjective beginning with "N"))

- Automatic Volume Controlling Pedal (call the jacks "instrument" and "amplifier" and paint it brown - voila - instant vintage pedal)

- Coughing Parrot. Of course, that would need an integrated fuzz effect.

- Cool Vibes

- Thomas T. Tremolson, Thomas McTremolo

- Fred (I've always wanted to call things "Fred". :P Plus, you'll have the advantage of using the Fender font and have that fender-ish capital "F" in front of the name.)

LOL, now we're getting creative. No more tremble/tremolous/trem/etc combinations, now it's all about names. :D It's gonna be rude.

I laughed my arse off over your second variant. :D

I still think Fred will win any name contest out there.
