A little package arrived today, all the way from Dawner Prince Electronics in Croatia!
It is surprisingly tiny, not that I have ever seen a Binson Echorec IRL… but even for a pedal this is tiny!
Weirdly the only demo vids are all by guitarists… this one compares the Boonar with the Strymon Volante
Will update this with some initial feedback after I’ve had a decent play with non-guitars!

▶ Fascinating article about Bong Joon Ho’s brilliant film PARASITE:
“Bong’s blending of genres often involves special, sometimes contradictory demands on his music coordinator — in Parasite’s case, 37-year-old South Korean composer Jung Jaeil. For the film’s opening sequence, for instance, the script called for a piano piece that was “hopeful and very anxious at the same time.” Over months, Jung composed four versions, all of which were rejected by Bong. “After he passed on the fourth, I felt very depressed,” Jung remembers. Jung drank himself into a stupor and “just slept on my sofa.” The next morning, he woke up with a terrible hangover and began improvising over a narrow middle section of his piano. “I had basically lost all hope, but that was the version he accepted.”
