"Trippy COOL fuzz/octave effect"
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
very happy with Danelectro products, and the French Toast is a sweeeet economical alternative to the glut of "boutique" stuff out there. Just because it costs and arm and a leg, and is made by some guy in his basement, does NOT mean it's better!
This is a FUZZ, not a distortion!! You know that dirty screechy COOL tone that Hendrix got in some of his solos? That's what this is for, not 80's hair metal. If you like White Stripes stuff, you'll like this pedal. It sounds very good, and for the price, it's an absolutley AMAZING deal. It's a tool, just like any other, and should be used for what it is designed.
It has everything it needs, but a 3-band EQ would be nicer instead of just a tone knob.
Ease of Use
I think the creativity factor of a fuzz/octave effect goes over alot of people's heads... but that's not the pedal's fault.
the knobs on Dano pedals seem abit flimsy, but I've never actually had a problem with them myself - just because they're called "stompboxes" doesn't mean you actually STOMP on them!
Danelectro gives BIG BANG for the buck - I will continue to be a repeat customer.
