Bought as a gift. Fast delivery and no issues.
Vraiment hot cette petite pédale
i love the sound it makes still playing with it but very happy.
This one s all new to me. I’m 63. My bream play on stage even an old folks home would do. Old people love music. Brings back memories. That’s my goal
Sing songs they knew. They grew up with. I’m not professional but I don’t want to sound bland either
I own 5 Donner pedals and like them all. This one is my favorite. Super musical, harmonically rich sounding distortion pedal. Does a high gain, mid gain or low gain sound exceptionally well with lot's of tonal options in the knobs and switch. If I had three thumbs I'd hold them all up for this pedal.
The first pedal i got was a Rat in 1988. I bought thedark mouse as a backup in case the sad day ever came it quit on me. Not only does the dark mouse nail the sound i use my Rat for, to serve as a backup, it's soo musical in all settings i have it on my board as a new addition to arsenal.
Sounds just like a vintage rat, plus the little punisher style mouse graphic is cute.
Really loving this pedal (I have quite a few Donner pedals - including several distortion pedals). The function, tonal quality and build are excellent. The Donner pedals that I have sound as good or better than any pedal that I have used over my 50 years of playing professionally (and I've had tons of them). Price is not the issue for me - I believe in paying for quality gear to get the sound that I want. However, I see no reason to pay the crazy prices out there when Donner pedals give me everything that I need. Get one of these (or any Donner product) - you'll love it ! Bruce G. - Buffalo, NY
I love Donner pedals, and I especially love the Dark Mouse. Classic, raw, paint peeling distortion. Just the right amount of fuzz, great tones, and singing sustain. These pedals are built well and sound pro. For the price, you can’t go wrong.
Great pedal. Worth more than the price.
It's a great pedal for the price. It has heavy lows and rich highs.
its making a weird noise when on... a spinning sound.?
Dark Mouse is a fuzz-like high gain pedal, especially for heavy metal players! It is suitable for heavy rock! Great!
Love the Dark Mouse Distortion pedal! It has a classic Rat flavor but feels richer and deeper. It can be adjusted to have a warm, mild distortion (great for blues and indie rock) or crank up the distortion for a full-on 80's metal sound. It sounds awesome and I plan to keep it as a permanent member of my pedal board!
Love it. I owned an original big box ProCo Rat and this sounds just as good if not better. Fantastic pedal.
This is a great pedal for the money. Full sound, no drop in signal whatsoever. Sounds great and the hyper setting is loud as heck!!
just what i wanted...showed up quick....i always recommend donner
this is an awesome gritty metal distortion pedal that really performs well if you like that sort of sound. I have bought all Donner distortion units and honestly I think they are all great. the difference in the sound of the distortion is unique with every item. I recommend buying all of their products.
I wanted a distortion pedal that could deliver heavy distortion, and boy am I happy. From the light overdrive of its lowest setting, to buzzy fuzz, and everything in between, this pedal delivers. The tone knob can make it Slayer bright, or Sabbath dark. I could not be happier with my choice!
This pedal arrived the very next day after I ordered it! Loved the tones portrayed on a YouTube demo, and it works really well with my pedal chain. This pedal is great for anyone wanting to play hard Rock!
This is what arrived! To date, I have not been able to reinstall the switch - my hands are just too big.
i just needed a pedal to distort/sustain my guitar sound and this works pretty well for that. but it also brightens the over-all tone so i really appreciate that.
Exellent sound! This pedal is very versatile and its range is really good. I think hyper mode is my favorite. The quality of this pedal is incredible for its price.
I love this pedal. The range of distortion on the Dark Mouse is impressive! From a lightly overdriven tone to a full-on distortion assault, you have it all here! Very true to its inspiration, I really like the filter control and the micro switch to select between classic and hyper. It delivers loads of tonal choices for any style. Great pedal at any price, but a stellar bargain from Donner! I highly recommend it.
Very good pedal, very easy to use. Level and filter quite sensitive, the tone switch is good and the distortion knob is also good. Overall a nice little package.
Nice and loud. Lots of good options for the distortion, loving the Hyper mode the most so far.
Works great with my two basses, one fretted and one fretless.
Along with the Dark Mouse I have the Donner Morpher and Extreme pedals. In searching for "my" sound, the Dark Mouse seems to be the Goldilocks "just right" pedal between the other two. To my ears the Morpher has that kind of thicker British sound and the Extreme has a kind of brighter scratchy sound running through both a Peavey ValveKing and a Vox ac15. The Dark Mouse is brighter than the Morpher and smoother than the Extreme, especially in the bass notes. But there is so much adjustment room in all the pedals that you can get a lot of variability in the sound too.
These Donner mini pedals are a great bang for the book. Built well, and work nicely.
The dark mouse is an awesome pedal! It sounds close enough to the rat for me and it has more tonal range. I also own the Donner dumble drive and the sophgate and I'm very impressed with the quality of their effects pedals for the cost.
A really good version of the ProCo RAT with a Hyper mode that smoothes out the distortion but keeps that Rat punch. If you want to try a Rat or loved that classic distortion sound, this is a good pedal. ITs built well, has low hiss and really gives the 70's gritty overdrive/distortion sound.
Love this distortion pedal. I usually set the distortion at around quarter and pair it up with the donner delay pedal to get a nice lead tone. Turning the distortion up is great for playing heavier stuff.
Well made pedal and great value and quality at that price !
Been a few years since I owned a R*T pedal.As far as I can remember,the Dark Mouse nails the sound very well.I like the way the filter control functions in the same direction as the original.I leave the switch on Classic.Hyper is a little too intense for me.I run the Dark Mouse into your Yellow Fall pedal and out to a small 15 watt tube combo with 6V6's.This is my "bench rig" at my job at a Guitar Factory.Tons of Fun!
The Donner Dark Mouse sounds amazing!! I have already used it on a few recordings. I own several Donner pedals and this is definitely one of my new favorites.
Good pedal, sounds like a rat, as it should. Recommended.
I play mostly classic rock and needed something to provide heavier distortion than my Boss overdrive. The Dark Mouse delivers the thick, saturated distortion that the Boss doesn't. Very surprised how well it cleans up with the distortion turned to a lower setting.
The only negative are the very small level (volume) and filter knobs. My 65-year-old eyes aren't what they used to be.
Overall, it delivers the thick distortion I need for certain songs. Excellent value.
A great pedal. I really enjoy the fuzz tone. The hyper distortion has alot to offer as well. It's like two pedals in one.
I bought the Donner Dark Mouse on a whim instead of a rat. I'm really glad I did. I like this pedal more than I thought I would. It can go high distortion and get on the edge of fuzz territory but I really use it with lower distortion and it adds a little bite to my tone. It really jazzes up a solid state amp giving it more of a tube like vibe. Earned a place on my board among higher priced pedals. It also feeds directly into my Yellow Fall delay pedal.
