  • Akai Pedal Fever...

    I'm all for a great deal, but did you listen to their own factory demo vids before buying?



    Yikes...

    I sure hope they sound better in person!

        Looks like rebranded Biyang stuff.

          Yeah, I saw that video. It was pretty uninspiring, but I bought the Tri-Mode Overdrive anyway. $19 with free shipping, so what the hell. It's just a rebranded Biyang overdrive, but the Biyang gets great reviews by just about all the users here on HC in the User Reviews. I've pissed away a lot more on a lot less with ultimately not even a pedal to show for it.

            Fortunately they don't fit on my pedalboard, not to mention, I already have enough dirt pedals. 4 of them on my pedalboard and another 3 or 4 sitting in a closet. Although I do plan on getting one of the Mooer rat clones at some point. I think I'm done buying stuff just because it happens to be a great deal....with a few exceptions of course. I tried getting one of those $12 Roland Space Echos but no dice.

            A whole bunch of stuff!

                  Whoa, never even saw that Akai pedal before. I'm going to have to store that in my memory bank in case I ever run into one somewhere for a cheap price. I would have just past it by before this.

                        Its only priced like that because its out of production and Chris from Muse uses it.

                            Wonder if they'll be better in person?

                              They are Biyang so I have no doubt they are good.



                              There have been several "boutique" builders whose operation was

                              to put epoxy over the innards of unbranded Biyang pedals, paint them

                              with wild colors, and sell them for 6 or 7 times the cost of a Biyang pedal.
