The Donner Alpha Cruncher is an analog style multi-effect pedal that combines three essential effects in one compact unit. First of which is the distortion effect, with classic Brit style hi-gain tones, second is chorus effect that's described as having a bright and warm sound, and finally, it comes with an analog-voiced delay.
