Yeah, they've obviously identified a massive gap in the market for dirt, chorus and delay. Only with stripes.

Those pedals are ugly. Hopefully these won't be re-housed starcaster pedals.

I'd rather they'd just re-issue Compstangs.

I like the sine chorus on the the Fender Mustang amp, if this sounds the same I might just get it.

I agree with johnnyseven on this one. Possibly headed for Toys R US, maybe?

Actually, my first thought was a blast from the 1980s, rather than cool comp stripes.

At least they're box shaped, and not Tele or Strat shaped.

The bypass switches look rather cheap and not solid looking.

The footswitch reminds me of Arion pedals.
