  • Danelectro contest : Dan Echo vs. "Reel" Tape Echo

    So which one of these is actually overall better, and which one is the best deal for the money? I am really interested in these two pedals, and I am wondering if it is worth the extra money to get the Tape Reel, or I should just simply get the DanEcho, as many seem to love it.

    I prefer the Wasabi Forward/Reverse to either of these, primarily because of the flexibility. My second choice would be the Reel Echo, primarily because I like the sound quality of it more than the DanEcho or the Wasabi. The DanEcho would be my third choice, but it's still a helluva pedal.

    I'll probably end up with all three.

        I'd probably say exactly what he said.

        Though I do prefer the tone of the Dan-Echo and Reel a bit more than the Wasabi, I still think the wasabi is the most practical delay and it does sound great.

          I have a Danecho I leave on all the time for a very subtle delay at the end of my chain. A faux reverb of sorts. It's a nice sounding pedal.

            I agree. The Wasabi is not the best-sounding of the three--just the most flexible.

              the Dan Echo is pretty amazing....It has become my delay of choice for soloing....I have a DD3 I use for more "specialized" or longer dealys....but the Dan Echo is just perfect....I love analog delays and this sounds very close and for the price - well, its simply in a class by itself, IMO.....My favorite pedal right now....

                i have the same thought..
                Yeah, non-guitar playing friends don't care.
                But non-violin playing friends probably couldn't tell
                the difference between a Stradivarius and a Suzuki.
                That doesn't mean the differences aren't there, or that
                they don't matter to people who care about them.

                  I have a Dan Echo and a Dano PB&J. I actually like the PB&J better.

                      If you have to settle for Dano, the Dan Echo is the best sounding and most problem free of them. It's still a flimsy piece of **************** though.

                        I'm looking at the Carl Martin Red Repeat too, but reviews are sparse.

                            The versatility of the Reel Echo is hard to beat. I'll never get rid of mine.
