    I'm not knocking Dano for this, but I'm thinking they are literally doing just that- repackaging some of there popular pedals ( throughout their various series) into maybe some improved ergonomic/practical boxes. Can't imagine there is a lot of R&D going into real circuit design- Dano is a $$ -making 'pedal copier' right?, so they can copy their copies...

    The Spinning Speaker sounds good. They look fugly. They seem inexpensive.

    Vintage Batteries improve your tone. Seriously?

    No, you were right. I downloaded the Pride of Texas manual. It states, "No Battery Inside", and then instructs how to connect an external power supply.

    No. Not vintage. But in many drive and fuzz pedals carbon zinc type batteries give a better or at least smoother sound than modern type batteries do.
    There was a power supply device some years back meant to mimic those

    But, like someone said earlier, if you can't hear the difference, don't worry about it

    They could have made more pedals with those names, they never made a Cheeseburger or Sloppy Joe, did they?

    Maybe they'll make a Gold Poupon and Russian Caviar for the new series.

    Those pedals always made me hungry.

    At least these new pedals use "funky name - what it does" in the naming. Those old pedals you didn't know if Chicken Salad was a Spinner or a Drive or what it was and no time to memorize the thirty quirky pedal names when I have this hunger urge to go to the Deli and get a real sandwich.

    I guess I'm just old school.
    What if you just want to do a jam or gig where all you want to carry is two guitar cables and one OD (w/ battery) pedal?

    >> DC supplies and alkaline batteries eat your tone.

    Don t their pedals modify your tone too ?

    They'd probably do better if they just marketed the pedals as the Fugly Series

    You'll just have to settle for one of the 100,000 other pedals on the market that take batteries.

    If these are repackaged classics with better bypass and better access to the controls, is that a bad thing?

    Their pedals always sounded GREAT to me. Not good. Great. But the terrible bypass in one series and silly control layout in another moved me out of them.

    Let's see, tone wood, tone caps, tubes, bridge, saddles, nut, cables, pots, strings, etc., why not tone batteries?

    I got a Pedaltrain Volto rechargable 9v supply, used, for $75, it works great, I'll never buy a battery again. OTOH, $6 - $10 for each 4-battery set? Hmmm. Yeah but their discharge is...different. It's crisper. :rolleyes:

    Guess they're going for a retro vibe 50s 2 tone thing and something different so they will stand out.
    I liked the sound of just about every Dano pedal that I have owned. Even the really cheap plastic ones.
    These probably sound good but I think they missed on the appearance.

    When you make cheap pedals and call them the "Billionaire" line, I guess there is a sense of irony there. If I say anything else I'll cross lines I shouldn't here.
