Daphon effects

Post by john » Sat Dec 27, 2008 3:46 pm

Anyone have any. what are your thoughts ?
I just impulsively bought one off trade me , because it was so cheap. Now I'm wondering if i was a bit to hasty :| .
So if any of you have had experience with them lets me know what they are like. I got the pedal tuner BTW

I would not be surprised Ruben .
One other thing I am worried about is it not being true bypass, and sucking tone when I am not using it . might have to make a bypass/mute box for it . will see when it gets here.

Hey. If I where you I would not get it.
It sucks ass on the tape wound strings (Guess it needs the harmonic content ) and is not that much better with rounds , to slow, had a go on our gat players Boss, was much better

not an enthusiastic endorsement.
I see Fender has one that looks like the venerable Boss Tu-12

anyway I've got to clear house and get this pedalboard built before I can buy anything else :o

Yeap i done the same. I bought the chorus. Its built solid as, I reckon you could drop it off the top of a building onto concrete and it would still work.

But.....

Sound wise-very very average. It works as it says it should, but its definatly missing something. Im being very subjective/vague here but i feel as though it adds a "twangy" noise to my tone. Which i dont want.

I ended up pulling it apart and taking the power supply jack to use on a pre-amp project :D
Plan on taking the footswitch out when i need one next.

So the moral of the story - It makes a good pedalbox, but the electronics are only good for parts.

I suppose I should state that I have only tried the chorus in Daphons range.

IMO of course
