  1. I did always want to get a pandora as a portable multi-effects for guitar. Does it still have 6.3mm jacks on it? It looks so small.

  2. This looks like a winner. I wanted to get a Pandora a few years ago but after a lot of thought I eventually went for a Digitech RP350 because it had balanced outputs. This looks like it could be a lot of fun and at $99 is a pretty good deal too.

  3. My Pandora mini is now displaying a "MEMORY ERR" message in the display, and will not function or exit this message. This problem is not listed in the "Troubleshooting" section of the manual. Any ideas?

    1. Yo tengo el mismo problema de MEMORY ERR en el display del PANDORA MINI y la verdad es que en el manual no hay más que una configuración para volver a los valores de fábrica y eso no soluciona el problema… Alguién podria ayudarme con el problema de software del PANDORA MINI por favor. Gracias!

  4. It's fried… you have to get it replaced. I've had 2 of them do this to me and had to get them replaced…

  5. Absolutely love it for headphone practice, The effects were decent for the price, some actually quite good. That was for only for 2 weeks and then I got the Mem Err and it was bricked. I bought it second hand so out of luck on any warranty. 🙁 Still I’m tempted to buy another one, I had other similar devices and this was my fav (For practice and learning effects). If you really had no other choice the effects are good enough to Gig for most styles of music. Still don’t expect it to replace a full pedal rig.
