About Valeton products:
“Since I discovered Valeton pedals, I was amazed by their sound. I use them live and in the studio, and they always deliver the best! Sometimes, when I travel and cannot take my full pedalboard, the Dapper reveals itself as a very handy and powerfull tool to get the best out of my sound”.
