C. Hare picked a complete line of floor-demo Danelectro Cool Cats pedals from Sam Ash at a closeout price of less than $10 each. “Pipe it through a decent practice amp like this Four Force EM-1, and you can get some good mojo,” Hare says. “The amp was $149 from Hello Music, and it really is worthy of its Winter NAMM ‘best in show’ title. It doesn't sound like it's mostly made of ABS, but it weighs almost nothing and it’s tough. The ex-HP engineer behind it has some really good ideas. It’s light, it sounds good, and it’s louder than hell.”
