This revolutionary product dramatically changed the concept of a multi-effect unit, placing great sound and unheard of versatility into a compact body. Constantly evolving, the Korg Pandora Series became a long-selling favorite for guitarists and bassists around the world.

158 "REMS" powered effects

In a body so compact it might be mistaken for a tuner, the Pandora mini packs in an astounding amount array of features. Despite the small size, there has been absolutely no compromise in sound quality. The amp models and effects are realistic and varied Analog characteristics such as a vacuum tube's distinctively fat sense of drive and the airy feeling of a speaker cabinet are all perfectly replicated. In addition to tried and true standard effects, the Pandora mini also provides unusual effects such as an intelligent pitch shifter for produces musical harmonies, an acoustic simulator, and a guitar synth. It's the perfect unit for every style of guitarist or bassist.

200 stage-ready presets including song preset programs

Just connect your guitar or bass to the Pandora mini, and you're instantly ready to play serious sounds. 200 Preset programs cover a broad range of genres and playing styles, so you're sure to find plenty of favorites. Choose one of the 115 Song presets and instantly capture the signature tone used by legendary guitarists playing your favorite hits. Use the Aux input to play along using to any CD or MP3, or take the spotlight and play that classic performance note-for-note. Of the 200 Preset programs, 160 are designed for guitar and 40 are designed for bass.

200 easily-edited user programs

Of course you can also edit your own sounds and store up to 200 of them as User programs. In conjunction with the presets, this gives you a total of 400 programs. Up to seven different effects can be used simultaneously. The effects are organized by category, and you can use the value dial to intuitively edit the parameters. Some effects provide multiple parameters, allowing more detailed control over your sound. You can also assign your favorite programs to the four independent program memory buttons for instant recall.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Idea, a couple problems"
Value: For $99.00 you get what you paid for Manufacturer Support: Have not used any support Overall: So the idea was this- attach the thing to my guitar and be free of having to hover over a foot pedal for the entire gig. Just plug the output into my wireless unit and wander the stage at will. A couple of things keep this idea from happening. First, almost every sound comes with a plethora of digital noise that will not go away no matter what. This is such an obvious problem it's hard to believe that a fine company like Korg would not address this issue before releasing the product. The second issue is actually more about me than them. I wish there were more than four assignment buttons on the front so I could access more instant sounds on the fly. Just two more buttons would help a lot.I love the shirt pocket size of the unit but unfortunately for my original idea of foot pedal independence, tuning on the fly requires me to unmount the unit from my guitar so I can look at the face. A series of two tuning lights on the top would solve this problem nicely. And speaking of mounting it on my axe, a metal case that can attach to a smooth surface by screws or heavy duty velcro would be very cool as well. Now, I know that Korg didn't design the Pandora for this but it would be great if they would consider a future model with these features. I'd buy one immediately.The Pandora as it is makes a nifty practice unit. The sounds are fun to play with and several of them are outstanding. A pair of headphones and only one AA battery and your good to go. It's pretty rugged too with a sturdy molded case and easy controls. If it wasn't for that damn digital noise I could rate it much higher. Not for use in the studio but great for practice.
Style of Music: Just about any genre imaginable.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very cool headphone amp"
Sound: I use the Pandora mini with my Fender American Deluxe fat strat for practice. With an inexpensive pair of Sony Walkman headphones it sounds great, although the volume is not real loud. Feature: I ordered a Neutrik 1/4 inch male to male adapter to connect directly to my Stratocaster. Very clean hookup and easy for practice. Ease of Use: The Pandora mini is almost intuitive to work. Even if you can't figure it out, the manual easy easy to understand. Quality: Very simple and rugged case. I'm a little concerned with the audio connectors. The headphone jack is a bit scratchy. I had to wiggle the plug a bit to get audio in both ears. Value: For a multi-purpose guitar headphone amp, this is probably the best unit and well worth the ~ $100 price. Manufacturer Support: I have not had to ask for support! The Wow Factor: Nice layout of controls. I like the black mini. Overall: This is a keeper. I would buy another one right away if it was lost, or stolen.
Style of Music: Blues
