It's hideous. Why does that make me want it more?

EDIT: Oh, god! There's more of them!:

They don't even sound cool... What home electrical department associate designed these dimmer switches anyway? :?

PS: Listening to 4 minutes of boring white guy stadium blues-rock guitar has me wanting to smash one of these pedals more than anything.

This is a fuzz pedal:

It's actually pretty amazing... The cynical jerk in me thinks this is a totally ridiculous gimmick that would only appeal to spastic children, but the spastic child in me is geeking out hard over such a cool and creative idea, regardless of how they sound (I haven't even checked)... Either way, I want that fuzz pedal mounted on my front door.

Really curious gimmick, like Danelectro-meets Power Rangers-meets Cronenberg. Imagine a whole table of these weird Beetle Borg/Lament Configuration-looking things at your next HN gig:

I bet noise people would like the Spektr.

And that Basswitch pedal is $260!

Dr No has a whole line of pedals that appear to be mostly about their packaging
