- That thick, warbly Andy Summers tone (low speed, high depth)
- Subtle doubling (low speed, low depth)
- A passable rotovibe/leslie impersonation (low depth, high speed)
This pedal does all 3 just fine and only cost me 13 bucks. There are only two concerns with it:
- There is a significant volume boost when the effect is enabled, and no way to adjust for it. Could be a problem in a live setting.
- The battery cover is held on by a metal screw in a plastic threaded post. I can't help feeling those plastic threads are going to strip out eventually. If you're not planning to use batteries this probably isn't an issue.
I have used it both with guitar and bass and did not notice any tonal degradation with either one. Lows and highs seem to be preserved. Despite being plastic, the case feels really solid. You'd have to be pretty violent with this thing to break it.
The bad: the size, it is wider than a standard Boss pedal. To make up for it, they put all the jacks on the top side, where they also put the dials. On a crowded pedalboard, the cables can easily interfere with the dials. Speaking of the dials, they face away from the player, so the controls feel backwards and you can’t see the indicator on any dial unless it’s between about 10 and 2. The “stomp” part of the pedal is relatively small and hardly raised, so anyone with above average feet could have trouble toggling it on/off.
This is not a great pedal on its own, but it is worth it at this price if you’re on a budget, looking to explore new sounds and don’t have a complicated pedalboard setup. And you have small feet.
Pro's; Bargain for those needing a usable chorus. Decent sound. Case heavy enough not to slide around.
Cons; plastic case, (seems heavy enough though and good enough to last a long time ), Plastic knobs and plastic thumb screw for bottom cover, (please change it to metal dano - I'll explain why below in conclusion),. Blue led sure is overly bright in our opinion. Sound; isn't the best or worst - but very usable and versatile.
Conclusion; I have another chorus but needed a second for a different setup. Didn't want to spend much. I'm happy with the dano. It does the job well enough indeed. The sound is not as 3d as some of the more costly others, (if that makes sense),. Yes, it does all the different various kinds of chorus but they're a tad flat, (don't get mad at me - just another guy's opinion),. I'd chose something else for recording if the chorus was a key element and I was being picky, (again - hope that makes sense),.
I put a battery in it, placed my foot on the switch, (maybe a speck too hard?), and a very loud cracking sound occurred. I thought, uh-oh, I broke the case first try,...or the pc switch board inside. All was o-k. Apparently, it's easy to miss the small grove for the bottom plate. If using batteries, care must be taken replacing it - at least on mine. I put pressure on the device and the base plate must have snapped extremely hard into place. That made me worry about the the plastic thumb screw holding the bottom plate on. Don't want to strip-it.
Would I buy it again? Yup! Love danelectro stuff. Just giving user feedback is all. And, since I love danelectro; the family knows well that I want one of the axes for Christmas.! I made sure of it, lol.
