I needed to expand my guitar effect arsenal and came across the Danelectro Fab 5 Chorus. At first I thought at the price, it could not be particularly good, but the reviews from other purchasers suggested otherwise. Buoyed by the positive reviews, I ordered one for myself. It sounds great, has a wide array of chorus intensity and speed to choose from, and has a wonderfully warm sound.

I usually go with the higher end effect pedal such as digitech but being out of a job and needing to rebuild my musical equipment collection after it was stolen. I was VERY happy with this item. I paid $15 for it and it was well worth it. The effect it's self isn't spectacular but its it rivals some $60 or even $80 dollar pedals I have used. For the price I give it five stars but as a musician I must look at the pedal it's self and not the price and in my opinion it's a pretty descent chorus pedal! I give it four stars and until I am working again I think I will be buying more of these cheap danelectro pedals to help me get the effects I need for the music I write.

I just bought this pedal and I am really impressed by it. I was apprehensive about buying it at first because of the low price (you almost always get what you pay for), and because of the fact that it is made primarily from plastic. Because of some strong recommendations of some other Danelectro products from a good friend, I decided to give it a shot, and I'm really glad I did. I am just a hobbyist, so I can't really justify spending a ton on something like an effects pedal, but at the same time, I wanted something that would provide some other sonic possibilities for me than just my little Fender amp alone can provide. This pedal does exactly that.
The pedal is made from plastic, but it is surprisingly hefty. I feel pretty confident that I don't have to baby around with it for fear of breaking it. The light on the face of it is nice and bright, and does a nice job of letting you know that the unit is powered on. Even in the darkest of environments, there is no question that this pedal is active/inactive. The knobs have a nice, positive feel to them, and you can hear the difference when they are adjusted, as opposed to some other pedals that I have tried in which the knobs seem to be non-functioning.
I would describe the sound as a generic, basic chorus effect. Somewhere between the built-in effect on a combo and a middle of the road chorus pedal. I have some experience with built in effects on various amp models, and I've always found them to be lame. This is much nicer than any of those.
There are plenty of other Danelectro effects available, and I will be getting some of them as well.

This was exactly what I wanted to make my acoustic sound stand out, not only that but the response was prompt. The seller seen that shipment would not make it as ordered and they upped the shipping from 3 day to overnight so it would be on time rather than email and late arrival (which was what I expected) I wouldn't doubt buying from this company nor using this product should i need this sound again. A great sound for $15 and it works good a person just couldn't ask for more

Yeah these petals are made from plastic, but shouldn't break unless your stomping on them. Great for startes. Chorus pedals mainly blend the sound together, good for clean solos with no distortion added in. Cheap price, decent sound quality, 4 star.

chorus is a cheezy effect, so you might as well use a cheap pedal. sure the tone is different than a small clone, but i personally like this better. this is my second fab chorus (the first one i had and gigged with for two years and then it was stolen) so i'm pretty happy with it.

i'm not a huge fan of the pedal's physical design, since a standard foot switch (a la small clone, big muff) or a boss pedal is much easier to hit. you're definitely going to be doing the "correct" thing of planting your heel in front of the pedal well before you hit it, just to make sure you hit it right.

HOWEVER, with the placement of the knobs, you won't accidentally change your tone with you stomp down *cough big muff cough*.

then again, some people like to change their settings with your feet, and you won't be able to do that. it's all a trade off.

This is a great product considering that it's cheaper than a large pizza. My rating factors in the cheap price. If you are looking for a lush chorus or you are just trying to experement with pedals, this one is a keeper. Yes, the build is plastic and the knob placement is somewhat annoying. What do you expect for $15? It sounds really good. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it lacks true bypass. It's not an egregious tone sucker, but if you run a long pedal chain like I do it starts to matter if you are using multiple pedals that lack pristine bypass. It matters for me because chorus is an effect that I use infrequently so to justify having it in my chain at all it needs to have great bypass. For that reason, I can't give it the rating that says "I love it", but it certainly fills a niche in the pedal market and it gets the job done admirably for the cost.
