Overview

Danelectro puts the D-2 FAB Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal in your hands without wiping out your financial portfolio. History was made in 1975 when a mom-and-pop store in California commissioned the production of just 200 of what is perhaps the best guitar overdrive effect ever. Unlike any other effects unit, that pedal authentically simulated the breakup that occurs when a tube amp is run at full volume. You will occasionally see an original in the stage rig of a major artist. IF you could find an original offered for sale, you should probably sit down before inquiring about the price . . . The Danelectro D-2 FAB Overdrive pedal features Level, Tone, and O.D. controls.

I've been using this for a while now. Let me tell you, you can't find a better deal. I've used a lot of pedals in my day, and this one has the sound I've been looking for all my life, not to distorted, just a nice warm overdrive, like early Stones. Yes, it's made of plastic, but if you don't abuse it, it will last you a long time. Mine is still in perfect condition, take care of your equipment, you'll be better off that way. Just try it for yourself, it's only $15.00.

This pedal is a discrace. First of all it is incredibly poorly made. The pedal itself is plastic and I feel as though if I were to "stomp on this stompbox" it would break in half. Second off, the controls are unconventional and not the easiest to change. The button part of the pedal is small, making it hard when your rocking out and trying to turn it on. The sound, well lets just say its no Boss distortion or Tube screamer. Save your money, save your ears, buy a better pedal.

Surprising find!

By William

from Tampa, FL

I was hesitant to buy this pedal because of the price, but I was pleasantly surprised when I received it. The heavy gauge plastic it is made from is very solid, you would have to stomp it like an elephant to break it. As far as tone quality goes it's great. Nice distortion effects without giving lots of excess noise in background. Almost sounds like a fuzz box from years ago to some degree. Pedal is powered by a 9v batter or you can get an adapter. Easy to use, easy to set up and easy to carry. If this is in your bag of tricks you won't be disappointed. For the money it's a good bang for the buck!

Best deal on an overdrive

By ANTHONY L

from WA

Well Iv been on the market for a overdrive for awhile, I bought an OCD but wasn't impressed with it for the price and returned it. Well I stumbled upon the FAB Overdrive used at guitar center. It has the exact overdrive I'm looking for, not gainy at all, just the right amount of crunch and very warm. Only thing that's cheap about this pedal is its plastic but if you aren't ridicules and literately stomp on this thing you'll be good to go. I love this pedal, I haven't stopped playing with it since I bought it. This is worth every penny, try one of these before spending $140 on the popular OCD or the tube screamer. I recommend this for Blues. Grunge, Punk, Rock, definitely not for Metal or anything heavy like that, just keep that in mind.

i dont own just tried

By jake

from gaylord mi

ive tried this pedal at the store and when i get the time and money to buy it IM GONA! its a wunderbar pedal and totaly worth the fifteen bucks to buy it. i recomend if your budget is low and you need an overdrive that you get it because you wont be let down. but it is plastic so thats the downside just dont abuse it and dont call it a stomp box.... because thats one thing it isnt.

Danelectro D-2 FAB Overdrive Pedal

By Thomas Greenhalge

from Westminster, CA

This pedal works great for my OD needs. It's an inexpensive pedal, but works as well as pedals costing twice as much. I own several Danelectro pedals, and they all do what they're suppost to do. I consider them a great value. Thank you, Danelectro and Guitar Center for your support.

Fab2

By lostart

from AC, NJ

A great overdrive pedal to compliment any amplifier package. The limitations are just within the players willingness to experiment all the possibilities. Can't say anything but the price is exceptional!

Great for the money

By Randy

from Tennessee

It has tons of volume gain and can be set from slight over drive to high gain. I use it with a small practice amp at the campground. Works great for this. Does not use battery when input is unpluged.

Worse Pedal I've bought,only one good thing!

By Fran

from Fountain Hills

When you play with it,there is constant "White Noise",Hard to perfect tone,hard to not hear "crisp" string noise (unless thats what your aiming for,I personally recommend using a regular wah-wah pedal set on high) Overdrive isn't too great,this pedal hasn't been in my loop since I can remember,only great for beginners,I suggest not realying on this pedal all too much...

Broken Already

By Gig

from OKC, OK

I bought this pedal for my son last Christmas and it didn't even make it until this Christmas. Sounded OK while it worked. I wouldn't trust this line of products.
