Danelectro DD-1 Fab Tone Distortion Pedal

Sound Quality

I am using a Washburn Mercury series guitar with a humbucker in the bridge position and an Ibanez Custom Talman with Soapbar Neck and Bridge pickups and a Lipstick in the middle. It adds some noise but nothing that you can't cancel out with a gate or a nice thick chorus. You have to keep the bass cranked up or it sounds flat and weak. Danelectro should have included a Mid eq knob on it.


It's a nice solid chunk of metal. Definitely no worries when it comes to reliability. One thing: DON'T RELY ON BATTERIES!

General Comments

I play hard rock and this thing is killer for solos if you turn the distortion level all the way down so that it's essentially a fuzz box. I've also played some slide on it and it sounds great. If it were stolen or lost I would rush right out and buy another one (although I doubt I could find it as cheap again!). I love the fact that it has instant response from the switch, so it's great for playing live.
