When we met up with Danny in this beautiful seaside location a few weeks back, we were lucky enough to have him perform for us using his Critical Mass Stompbox! This song is called Pack Up. You can find it on Danny's Self-Titled album "Danny Olliver"! Find it on Spotify here: http://bit.ly/DannyOlliver

ARTIST: Danny Olliver
Equipped with a guitar and a strong sense of self, Regina, Saskatchewan’s Danny Olliver has made a global name for himself.
Olliver learned guitar on an abandoned three string Yamaha he saved from being trashed. A quick study, he added three more strings and began writing his own material. Taking inspiration from guitarists like Don Ross and Antoine Dufour, Danny focused on fingerstyle pieces. His musings as a fingerstyle guitarist gave him an exceptional edge as a musician when he began writing his own songs and singing in 2008.
There’s nothing like having a large and enthusiastic audience singing along with you. CRITICAL MASS puts that magic right at your feet in an easy to use stompbox.
Sing Along Style
Whether you’re pounding out arena rock-style anthems or leading worship at your church, having group vocals on demand allows you to set the mood and engage your entire audience. Choose from “melodic” or “gang” style vocals that suit any style of music with no key or scale input required.
Reverb simulates a physical space, allowing your voice to fit into the music perfectly. Whether it’s the ambiance of a small room or the massive reverberation of a concert hall, CRITICAL MASS’ 3 vocally tuned reverbs always brings out the best in your voice.
Personal Sound Tech
CRITICAL MASS’ Adaptive Tone (equalization) with compression, de-esser and gate automatically control the timbre and shape of your sound, ensuring every note is pristinely clear and intelligible. When the crowd hears exactly what you’re singing, they can join in – and there’s nothing better than that
Ease of Use
You’re a singer first and foremost, so getting knee-deep in technology probably isn’t what your gig calls for. That’s why CRITICAL MASS automatically sets your mic gain to the optimal level, allowing you to concentrate on giving your best performance – night after night.
CRITICAL MASS gives you the option of either plug-in power via the optional POWERPLUG 9V adapter – or battery operation for those occasions when you’re just doing a short set, or house power isn’t readily available.
Your Best Performance
Whether you’re playing at the local tavern or a huge festival, your vocals always deserve special attention. CRITICAL MASS gives you the tools to always sound your best with vocal doubling, state-of-the-art reverb and automatic pitch correction – all in an ultra-simple stompbox designed to elevate your performance to the next level.
