    I’m sure their hearts were in the right place.

    Doesn't seem any worse than Chibsons, Chenders, or monoprice.

    Look closely at the pic...nothing to do with rip-offs. And FWIW, I think nothing is worse than Chibsons and Chenders. I'll accept nicking an old circuit, but not a rip-off clone, meant to deceive.

    Maybe whoever set up the board was really trying but was out of their element.

    ...or else I won't buy it.

    Actually I have heard some good things about those Amazon pedals. Not that I can remember them now, but there were some positives. At least you can get your feet wet on a certain effect to learn about what it is/does.

    Looks a lot cleaner than if they had done it right, though.

    Not to worry, it looks like the jack in the Looper output isn't plugged all the way in anyway. :rolleyes:

    Photographer set it up & got things wrong. I doubt when a photographer takes pictures of a plane...they could fly it. We're nick-picking a bit...& we guitarists never do that. ;)

    These are rebranded pedals already being made & sold all over the place under a hundred different names. Battery makers do this...tube makers used to this. GE or Sylvania tubes rebranded as Admiral for Sears. If I wasn't so lazy, I could spend the rest of the night posting pictures of OD pedals in green.

    Out of curiosity, I tried looking them up on the Amazon app...good luck getting anything other than the delay pedal to come up on a search. Amazon basics od pedal, Amazonbasics guitar pedal, Amazon tuner...

    I disagree. They offer no info on how to use these pedals. Some newbie following that setup would be screwed if he even got a signal to the amp.
