About to purchase my second one! My original one lasted 14 years!

By Timmy

from Montgomery, AL

Comments about Danelectro Daddy O. Overdrive Pedal:

I just wanted to throw in my review for this amazing pedal! I am about to purchase my second one! My original one lasted 14 years! Not bad for what was a $60 pedal at the time! The sounds this thing can produce just blow you away! I have used it for everything from jazz, blues, and funk to 50's and 60's rock, heavy metal, and punk! It goes from a clean tone that is smooth as butter, to a distortion that you have to bang on your strings to hear, to playing aggressive punk, to squealing pinch harmonics and bone rattling crunch in heavy metal. I also used this as a distortion pedal for my bass amp! I play a lot of Misfits, Samhain, and Danzig and this gives the bass that bass growl that the Misfits used. This has to be one of the most under-rated and unknown pedals ever. But, I was so impressed with the sounds this produces and the quality of my original that I am buying another one tomorrow! My original got fried and was my fault. The only reason I'm not buying one today is because today is Xmas day and the store is closed!

Amazing at low gain

By Brian

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Danelectro Daddy O. Overdrive Pedal:

I remember when I got this pedal. My dad had it for a while then gave it to me. I didnt think it was that good... I wanted it to be a really high gain kind of pedal (it was my very first pedal) but it didnt have that so I just blew it off. Today I was trying to get my solid-state amp to break up just a little like a tube amp so I decided to Break out the Daddy again. It added so much warmth and just a little break up JUST like a tube amp. It is what I've wanted for a long time and I'm adding to my pedal board to be left on the ENTIRE time. It's my new favorite pedal. If you want a pedal that will cause nice tube-esk break up, get this pedal!

Best $60 I've ever spent.

By Max

from Ridgefield, CT

Comments about Danelectro Daddy O. Overdrive Pedal:

Wow, this pedal is amazing. I bought it used about 2 years ago and at first didn't like it. But then I realized the magic of distortion. It's great for blues, rock, metal, and soloing. Just a tweak of the knobs and you can make any distortional sound you want. 5+ Stars.

sturdy, versatile, but a little harsh

By hare.29

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Danelectro Daddy O. Overdrive Pedal:

This is one of the nicer Dano pedals- medal case, medal button. The 3-band eq gives you more options for OD- turning down the mids can give you a nice scooped sound that I can't get with some other pedals. However, the OD itself can sound a little harsh and solid-statish. It doesn't do the nice breakup of tube OD quite as well, but I've had it now for ~10 years and I don't plan on getting rid of it. I also like the switch on this pedal- it's very soft, there's no noticible click like in e.g. EHX pedals. That makes it very barefoot friendly.

my oldest and dearest

By rubber_sled

from Richmond, VA

Comments about Danelectro Daddy O. Overdrive Pedal:

I love this pedal. The fact that you have a 3 band eq in such an inexpensive box is amazing. You can dial in any tone you want and adjust the drive and volume to suit the amount of overdrive you want. Makes my tube amp sound like i am going to blow it without actually blowing it. Well worth the money.
