Very useful piece of equipment
Victor423, 20.12.2016
Fabulous piece of kit for the money.

Bought to use direct onto the desk to save carrying heavy rig around and it does the job very well.

The effects loop is excellent as it means you can add your own reverb and modulation via a couple of micro pedals and still keep the footprint tiny.

Also, unlike it's main rival the FR5 it has a tuner on board which is so important to most players that I cannot understand why any company would not include one but Tech 21 do not.

Sound is great and the distortion section can be used as a boost to the overdrive section should you be looking for a lead kick.

Another great application is putting the Dapper straight into an Electro Harmonix .22 or .44 calibre power block which again offers a very compact and powerful tone engine.

The build quality at this price point is also absolutely extraordinary!

I thought the delay was adequate but nothing to rave about but I must stress, it is more than serviceable when wrapped up in the overall Dapper feature set.

Also runs at 9v centre negative so you can run it from almost any power supply or pedal power block

Cannot fault this product. Buy one!!

Compact, great value for price, totally satisfied with it
15.01.2017
I'm mainly using the strip on a Fender Frontman 15G amp, which is great mostly on clean tones, I needed something more "crunchy". The multi effect is very thin and handy, can be attached to other effects becoming.
The connections are robust and well made. I don't use very much the delay function for now, but it is nice, also you can set the timing directly tapping with the foot the time, nice feature. The distortion is the effect I like the most, tweaking with settings you can really have a dirty, aggressive sound. Overdrive is very good too. The tuning switch is handy even if the green light is so strong it can be annoying. Keeping the tuner on disconnect all the other functions. Someone might find it annoying, I prefer this way. The strip is super compact and solid, with I guess aluminium finish, you can take it with you easily. The only thing I don't like are the knobs for setting the effects, pretty small, you've to sit down and set them.

First thing to say, as usual service from Thomann is great, fast delivery and great packaging.

Now for the piece of kit itself!
Very impressed by the quality given the price. Even the switches are very smooth.
The OD is very sweet and creamy, the distortion can be very aggressive and the delay does its job, with the added value of a very practical tap tempo feature.
I plug it directly into a tube amp so I cannot rate the cab simulation.

All in all, a very good pedal for very tight price (and footstep, this think is tiny!), go for it!

Costa poco rispetto ad analoghi prodotti.
Il suo obiettivo è mettere a disposizione del chitarrista un insieme di effetti indispensabili. Ci sono un OD, un distorsore e un delay. L'obiettivo è assolutamente raggiunto.

C'è è poco da dissertare, quindi:

PRO:
leggero,
robusto,
gli switch sono di ottima fattura,
"Tap tempo" sempre disponibile,
accordatore perfetto,
feel analogico,
loop send/return (prodotti più costosi non ce l'hanno)
ottimo se si usa un amplificatore.
Sta comodo dentro la tasca della custodia assieme a un paio di jack.

CONTRO:
la luce dei potenziometri è talmente forte che risulta difficoltoso leggere le scritte.
La simulazione di cassa (probabilmente solo una equalizzazione) è praticamente ininflutente.
Suono in PA piuttosto "scuro"
Necessita di alimentazione di rete (non va a batterie)
