I am a huge fan of making a guitar sound nuts. It may not take much talent but its still fun. Does anyone know of anyway to make crazy noises? I want my amp to sound like its falling apart. Share any pedals, setups, or tips.

Examples include putting two delays together or plugging in a wah backwards for the seagull effect. Thanks!

I guess a ring modulator. And whammy pedal too. Download Reaper, get a cheap interface, ASIO4all, and you can mess with all sorts of crazy effects. Or get a zoom g3x because that has a lot of options plus some cool sounding presets, and the expression pedal

I wonder what would happen if you ran a mxr blue box into a voodoo labs proctavia (or similar). That might be pretty crazy.

+1 on Miku stomp, I'd love one of those just for the banter

Haven't gone through all the unlabelled links but assuming they're not there Earthquaker Devices' Rainbow Machine and Arpanoid are both pretty fantastic for weird shit noises (I remember seeing a thread on here suggesting using both at the same time - I'd love to see how that turns out...)

Rowland S. Howard used to run an MXR Blue Box into a Distortion+ (or vice versa, I can't remember which), the crowning example of which is this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShFv4c5Hgno
Someone made a signature pedal which was called the Reuss RSH which was basically the two MXR pedals combined into one, and I believe is now sold without the attachment of Rowland's name as the Reuss Evil Twin. The concept is basically that combining an octave effect known for poor tracking with a distortion makes for some pretty chaotic noises. Just found this demo, the guy kicks in both effects at about 4 mins, and it begins to be clear how Rowland made so much noise with a Jag and a Twin Reverb:

Something that just came to my mind: one reverse delay with a long delay, and a second delay (preferably modulated) with very short delay and absurd feedback.

I actually need to try this at home. I'll report back if I survive.

I posted both, and have both. (Haven't gotten to try them in my rig yet, though.)

They're in the queue, right, along with the 97 other pedals you haven't even unboxed yet...

Dwarfcraft She Fuzz. Or any Dwarfcraft pedals really. The starve function on the She Fuzz gets some pretty wild oscillation and stutter effects.

I finally actually had time at home to look through this post and this is an absolute goldmine. I love you for this. The Rainbow Machine is by far the most brain-exploding thing on there, while on the other hand the Arpanoid is genuinely cool and I can see some actually usable uses of that. (especially with some spacey reverb and stuff)

I still haven't had a chance to try my double delay thing though, coming soon.

Here's a demo of one fitted to an Ibby from the factory. You could mount it behind the bridge without routing on say, a strat.

Glad to help!

Personally, I think that the Rainbow Machine and the Antichthon are about neck & neck, and the Glamour Box is a close third.

The Antichthon is... weird, but I can see some sort of reasonable uses for it, it seems more controllable.

The Rainbow Machine, on the other hand, seems like pure WTF IS HAPPENING generator.

The Ohnoho Chk Chk Boom isn't an inherently weird pedal- it is simply a momentary looper- but it does help you multiply the weirdness of your rack.

The Arpanoid in combination with stuff has a lot of potential:
