    It must be flattering and irritating for Donner that someone is using His name to sell their boxes. Unless of course They have His blessing. Link.

    Am I the only one who does not find these pedals even the slightest bit 'Erotic'???

    I also notced that the ad said 'Hand made in the USA for extreme tone!'. I'm not sure I want extreme tone thank you very much.

    He's saying it has a faux Donnerbox finish. Unless He has Donner Rusk's permission to say that I'd think that's a problem.

    That seems taboo. I thought there was bad blood there... Maybe it has been resolved.

    A few things, one it's looks like an interesting pedal, two from a visual standpoint looks decent, but what is really strange is the "bid and I will set up a BuyItNow for you". So if you bid low does he set the BuyItNow price the same? Something I am curious about.....very interesting....

    This is the guy's website, looks like he is building most of the BYOC product line and throwing his name on it.

    I bought a Peppermint fuzz from a guy on ebay last year that was advertised as one of the original Donner box versions. It had the standard red and white Analogman graphics on it. I got a good deal on it but I had to let the guy know that it definitely was not a Donner box edition. Some people are just uninformed.

    Isn't this the same guy who sold a bunch of stuff last year and never mailed it out? I think he was using RetroFX, but I def remember the good karma studio name.

    IIRC someone sued him. Maybe he's all good now, but I wouldn't trust it.

    RetroFX, EroticFX..what will he come up with next?

    I warn EVERYONE I can to stay away from that guy.

    Donner..are you gonna get the auctions pulled? I wonder how much trouble eBay would make you go through.

    Off topic question: Donner, do you have "Donner Box" Trademarked? Just wondering. Might not be a bad idea if not.
