Has anyone ever pedals a pedal from akai? Before people get into it yes I know they're a better constructed Biyang pedal. I just snatched 3 of them that are normally $179 a piece for $30 each on stupid deals of the day.

Now today I get another email saying that my order is cancelled.  WTF, Musician's Friend?  I thought you were my friend?

Hey Bruce - I saw those - and I was very tempted - but I am on pedal overload right now.  I also was jonesing for the Aphex Big Bottom Aural Exciter when it was $99 - but I passed on that too.  But - they have been having great deals on pedals.  Those Akai pedals look very sweet.  Nice score. 

 

@tymj - I've learned - that when you see the deal (no matter where it is), you have to buy quickly - b/c online is always changing (Stock, price, etc.).  Sorry to hear your order got cancelled.  That really sucks!

Soooo I really like them. The overdrive pedal has the same exact circuit chips as a tube screamer. The blues overdrive is nice too. The distortion pedal is ok, its got only one decent setting. I might resell that but time will tell. I did just order the mesa throttlebox

oh cool - let me know how you like the Mesa pedal.  This will be year 2 that Mesa won't be @ NAMM.  That coupled with the fact that they are making pedals - tells me that perhaps amp sales are down?  My best guess.  If so - it's a shame, b/c their quality is top notch.  Too many copies at a fraction of the cost.  I suspect that caught up to them.

Look into Biyang pedals. They're EXACTLY THE SAME, but way cheaper. Akai are simply rebranded, I have the Biyang AD-8, it works as well as any other analog delay i suppose
