    I know. Kinda has me worried ... like when a movie is released and they refuse to screen it for critics first.

    Still ... you can have transparent overdrive for $49!

    could be a cool small rig (the pedalboard and a couple boxes) for jams, and the like....when you don't want to bust out your analogman or Klons...

    I used to have the Dano compressor and tremolo, and although the parts were cheap the circuits were great.

    Interesting that they are now using metal boxes and true bypass.

    I'm not overcome with the looks of these, but I bet they are great bang for the buck.

    I think they would do better if they used some type of retro looking cases instead of the goofy looking cat paws.


    When is that?!?!?!?! :D

    biker bars you're unfamiliar with or don't have "in's" with the local scooter club....dive bar jams were you might get your **** jacked.

    haha, I play some shady places, and almost always bring out the "good stuff"....but it might be nice to have a "b rig" to just leave in the truck for jams and the like.....

    The thing that I haven't liked about some of teh cheap Dano pedals is the tone suck when off. True bypass would be a huge improvement, because other than that I thought they've had some nice sounding pedals.

    I wish they had gone with these features in the first place. Some of those mini pedals sounded great, but they couldn't hold up to the stress of actually being played.

    Just googled em up, no luck finding a dealer yet.
    I like the TB notion there though.
    Quirky and colourfull and quite interesting.
    It seems dano are paying attentionto real neads.

    I think I'm in for one or five once they are available. Price sure is right.

    If they're pushing the all-Cool Cat pedalboard idea they REALLY should have made a tuner :/

    A tuner and a delay and a reverb. But that said, those all could be coming (I'm guessing they are).

    if the vibe is the mini chicken salad rehoused and with TB, then that will be the best vibe for the price, period. heck, the chix salad may have the title already even with it's shortcomings!

    +1, I just purchased the Chicken Salad and French Toast. Still debating the PBJ but it was good when I borrowed it once. They actually have very good sounding circuits indeed however, the tone suck when off is unbearable on my board and I leave them off to the side which is a shame really.

    Now these have bypass switch, as advertised, and a diecast case!!?!, I think I missed again on my timing.:jo
