    I like this boost. Has some tonal magic going on. Pretty much the same as the DBK, perhaps a bit more output. Still not a lot of gain going on, but the leads SING when engaged. Honestly left it on at practice and rode my volume knob..

    Nice having a separate bass control, keeps it from getting farty....can be ice-picky if you don’t roll the treble knob but I’m all over it....

    I like the Muzizy. To me it is slightly darker than the DBK at the same settings, but I have only done a very brief comparison at low volume through my PJ3.

    I will probably send mine back to the vendor. The output jack does not click securely around the cable pin when I put it in, and in fact the cable on occasion pops out. I'll ask for a replacement. Possibly it is not as well made as the DBK, or just a fluke component issue.

    Yup a bit darker than the DBK, but translates well into the Pro Jr. A tad gainier perhaps? In a good way.

    It's funny how I'll be blown away by something like the Boost Killer and then file it away. I pulled it out earlier to pair with a recent Lovepedal find and it knocked me out all over! I can't put my finger on what it's doing; it's not mids-happy at all, it's not gainy in the least, to my knowledge there's no "voltage pump" business happening (yes, I'm a total layperson).

    So, clearly it's mojo. It's the only logical explanation. ;)

    Anyone here running this Donner power supply? I just ordered one for under $27 after using today's Ebay PRONTO15 discount code. It seems to have great reviews and for my board, it was the only one I could find with the leads from the power brick to the pedals having one straight end and one right angle end. I think this will give maximum flexibility for connecting them.

    I am sure it will be fine. I had a smaller Mosky power supply a while back, and even though some tell us that these cheap power supplies aren’t “really isolated”, they do reduce noise and other issues. I’m not an engineer so I can’t tell you the difference in design between these types and the expensive well known brands.

    Yup. I have this. Paid more but no complaints regarding the unit. Works great.

    Been struggling to find an affordable Reverb/Delay pedal in one, then Shane drops this cheap and cheerful bombshell on my YouTube :)

    Can any of you who have experience with both Donner and Mooer pedals tell me how their foot switches compare?

    I've heard that the Donner switched are pretty stiff, and my concern is that since I play barefoot at home the switch may be too stiff to comfortably press with my big toe.

    The only pedal I currently have with such switches is a DigiTech Whammy, and that's really easy to press.

    I haven’t had problems with the switches on either Mooer or Donner pedals.

    Just joined. Wanted a tremolo and opted for the Donner. Nice vintage sound through my Origin 20. Bargain for a home player. It's the only donner on my donner board, but it's a keeper.
