    That's the one. Definitely the strangest thing I have ever heard.

    It's called the Korg Miku. It's based off Hatsune Miku, an animated Japanese pop singer; she pretty much the biggest "celebrity" in Japan. I've tried the pedal out before, and while it is weird, it was oddly satisfying to play melodies on it. It tracks pick attack, bending, and vibrato very well. It may be an odd pedal, but I can't help but think it may actually have a use to someone.

    Earthquaker makes a ton of weird, wonderful, yet useable sounding noise boxes.

    The MXR Blue Box was strange, for sure. Ditto for the Fender Blender, very hard to control.

    Weirdest demo had to be an original Heil Talk Box a guy was trying in a music store full of little kids and women. He apparently thought repeating the phrase, "I want to %@#$ you!" 47 times was cool. It wasn't.

    I just got mine on ebay (from Japan) for $100.00 shipped last week.

    The most you should have to pay is around 120 or 140.

    It is rut busting bliss and forces you to play COMPLETELY different music.

    I was about to share that same demo. Never tried it, but the Korg Miku is the weirdest pedal ever. Lol

    Definitely weird styling and a bit too much in a single box.

    It was fun but would've been too much of a novelty for me

    It's not a pedal, but there's a very odd preset on my POD HD that's called "Haunted Toys". It's one of the most impractical effects I've ever heard. When you hit a note, it just makes a bunch of creepy atmospheric tones that are washed-out by reverb. If you tried to play a melody on it, you wouldn't be able to hear it. I'll have to upload a clip of it sometime.

    Beat me to the Blue Box.

    The Korg Miku pedal from Japan.

    I have one.

    The weirdest pedals I've played through were the Devi Ever Bit Mangler, or possibly the original Fender Blender. Crazy fuzz with unpredictable octave / oscillation effects. The Z. Vex Fuzz Probe earns an honorable mention for some of the crazy sounds it can produce, but it's a lot easier to control.
