www.banzaieffects.com

There are some clips there. They have a reputation for being on a par with / better than the Fulldrive 2, and they're slightly cheaper. So i'm interested in playing with one...

so no dealers in the UK then? that would explain the difficulty in trying one out before purchase... now i really want to try one! i might try emailing them about sorting out distribution in UK, surely a big enough market.

the 'changer' sounds pretty cool too - changes the position of an effect in the chain, nice.

just emailed banzai about potential dealers in the UK, this was their response:

www.soundsgreatmusic.com will soon become a Banzai dealer/distributor.
Please contact them about trying one of our pedals. <hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=2 id=quote>
