    Not crazy about the marketing, but the Spinning Speaker looks interesting.

    At least they put Controls on the top/ plus normal footswitch-

    I gotta say as a ( previous ) owner of the Cool Cat Series ( And I had and sold the Dano V.1 TOD, and Dano V.1 Drive and Fuzz- all very good sounding) and cheapo FAB Distortion, the Control placement ultimately was a real deal breaker for me, for gig use. Drove me nuts.
    The BOOST one sounds pretty good, and the Spinning Speaker would sound good with an OD- and it looks like they are affordable.
    Don't dig the 'Billionaire' tag but that's not a big deal

    OMG, they look like a part of a medical equipment. Say a footswitch for this:

    The "Billionaire" marketing thing is disturbing, but the Battery device is intriguing, especially considering I'm building up a 4 pedal grab n' go board.

    I don't understand what the battery thing does? It's not just a power port/adapter, as it has batteries, Right?

    You don't suppose it is designed so that one battery powers 4 pedals?

    I liked the sound of the boost.

    Not diggin the prices though

    Also puzzled by the battery box, but I guess the idea here is that many drive pedals sound better with old school batteries, especially ones that have weak output. If you've ever used Dano branded batteries, you might have noticed that they have that half-dead quality to them. so I guess the idea is that your drive/fuzz pedals will sound better if you run them through this brick which is powered by their batteries, and you don't have to mess around with all the little trapdoor compartments? I dunno

    Kind of confusing- Dano ( and I play a Dano RI guitar, love it) is always pretty invisible when it comes to info and support, ' contacability'...They put something out there, and then they disappear!
    Prices could be a little cheaper, but I guess there's nothing else ( maybe JOYO or Biyang/GFS? ) this cheap?

    Hahaha actually laughed out loud at this! Horrendous design! Can't imagine they'll sell many.

    Spinning speaker is interesting. Prime for DIY re-boxing!

    The point of the battery box is having one switch to turn off your fuzzes without having to unplug the input jack or plug in dummy plugs on several pedals every time you turn off.

    I actually like the battery box concept, no need to worry where the wall jack is or openning up pedals that are already fitted and velcro'd to the board. A foot switch and led for on and off would be preferrable, but I understand why those would be harder to fit.

    Agree with everyone else on the "billionaire" branding not making sense, but as least they're doing a theme and something diffetent.

    The battery one is odd.... It's just a battery tray that holds (4) 9V batteries for $50. Why not four LED's for Low Battery indication? I mean, make it useful.... The battery tray hasn't been sold yet (that I recall), so I guess that's what they're banking on.

    EDIT: There's not even an LED to remind you that it's on!!

    Couldn't a power supply with faux half dead battery mode (same principle as variac.) work? Guess you wouldn't sell batteries then. Maybe something like this already exists.

    Granted I know next to nill about electronics, but I dont think it would be difficult. I remember those all in one radioshack (Realistic) brand adapters with voltage selector switch from the 80's.

    Wow it seems kind of inappropriate in this day and age.Surely they could have
    come up with something else.
