Back in the homeland of Nikola Tesla, in the land of inspiration, is where Dawner Prince brand was brought to power. It was founded in 2009 and ever since we have been manipulating electricity and turning it into sonic art.
Our effects pedals are high-end music devices and we strive to maintain that level in every aspect. New approaches and innovative ideas in electronics are incorporated into the circuitries, making them more reliable, and endowing them with studio sound quality.
Each and every pedal is polished with innovativeness, versatility, functionality and aesthetics - all carefully hand made in Croatia, EU.
Our great wish is to spread the same inspiration, energy and love we feel while designing and producing our effects pedals to the pedalboards all over the world.
From the early childhood days Zoran fell in love in making music - playing drums with his mother's pots and pans. So, even though he builds a career in designing guitar effects, his first instrument and first love were drums.
He has always been fascinated with electricity and technology so, alongside with playing drums in different bands, he started attending Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
During his college years, his band guitarists were spending more on entertainment than on musical equipment so, strapped for cash, he decided to build them a guitar pedal. That RAT clone distortion in a clumsy enclosure was the one that set his path.
He is the founder and CEO of Dawner Prince Electronics. The name of the company is a direct English translation of his name and surname.
Even though he now has less time for the band, he enjoys spending his days developing new ideas and tweaking circuits for the new musical devices.
Besides music and technology, his other passions are freeride mountain biking, sailing, aquaristics and astronomy.
He still hasn't learned to play the guitar well.
Jelena has been a part of the Dawner Prince story from the very beginning and as the company grew she officially became the general manager.
With a master's degree in psychology, she is the mind that goes over heart in decision making and the one who talks a lot. Her creative ideas and an eye for the aesthetics make a great contribution to the final products.
Her second profession being a cabaret circus artist, she can successfully juggle the whole manufacturing process and her performing career. She assembles, tests, supervises, packs and even solders if needed. Plus, she can spin a hula hoop on her nose.
