When we ran The Pinwheel through its paces here at Music Experience, we were impressed by its durable, player-friendly design. It all starts with a rugged yet lightweight, anodized aluminum chassis that's tailor-made for heavy stomping. LED-backlit knobs make it child's play to see your settings on a dark stage. Swapping out batteries is a breeze, thanks to a patent-applied-for magnetically latched 9-volt battery door. Want a rotary speaker pedal that really delivers the goods? Look no further than The Pinwheel.
