I was looking for a small, battery operated amp to play when i didn't want to lug a big amp around because I am very lazy. This thing can create a wide range of sounds, and the tone is so rich and old school. I have recommended this amp to everyone i know, and i urge you to give it a try. I love the "sweet potato pie" setting shown in the instruction manual. Every time I play thru it, I am still amazed at the sound coming out of an amp I can hold in my hand. It has a button for tremolo, which you can adjust the speed of with a screwdriver. It has another button for echo, tone and gain controls, and a plug for an AC adapter, which is not included.

I recieved my Hodad DH-1 Mini Amp today. The Reverb works, the tremelo works. There is no clean at all. At any setting it sounds like the speakers are blown. I wanted the clean sound. If it's turned really low, too low to enjoy, then it is close to clean. I am debating if I should send it back or not. I probably will. I am sure there are better mini amps for the money!

        Sounds like a big amp, but it's a small amp! Good price, portable, nice effects for such a small thing. Comes with a battery so you can open it and start playing right away.

          Not only does this have the coolest look of all mini amps, it's quite versatile when you start experimenting with the volume and effects. Tons of volume.

              For the price, you can't beat this little amp! I bought this for camping in the summer. out of the box I played my Stratacoustic through it and was really impressed with the sound you can get out of this little 9V powered amp! The tremolo setting out of the box is really choppy so you will want to adjust it, the echo effect is pretty good. I only wish there was a good way to attach a shoulder strap or belt clip to this.

                Comments about Danelectro Hodad DH-1 Mini Amp:

                This tiny amp sounds great for the size. I only dinged it one star because, compared with the Danelectro Honeytone, it seems a little overpriced. The latter is only twenty on MF, while the Hodad is fifty. They are roughly the same size and can use the same AC adaptor (not included, recommended). Both use a 9v battery, and the Hodad will burn though it faster.

                There's no question that the Hodad has a better, richer sound. Its has two speakers vs. one for the Honeytone, and the difference in sound quality is apparent side-by-side. But.. it doesn't sound 2.5 times as good. There're also the extra effects, echo and tremolo, which are nice and work well enough, but they're not a huge deal for me.

                Both have tone, gain, and a headphone jack.

                Recommended for portable or quieter practicing. If you want the best bang for your buck and just need to hear yourself play, get the Honeytone. If fifty isn't too rich for you, the Hodad will deliver a greater quality and variety of sound.

                Disappointing, only one good sound

                By Richard Egnot

                from Cleveland, OH

                Comments about Danelectro Hodad DH-1 Mini Amp:

                I was so excited about this when I ordered it. I love Dano/Evets' quirky touch to their gear. After waiting for two weeks due to GC's constant lack of having things in stock, 'twas mine! I was disappointed in the size (especially compared to the Fender Mini-Tweed I traded this for) and I couldn't get a decent sound out of this to save my life. Now, I am not a tone freak whatsoever. I like the strange, obscure and weird side of musical sound. If I can get a cool tone by running the speaker out of my Marshall head into a potato, i'll do it. BUT, this little amp's only aurally pleasing tone was the slapback echo tone, which sounds excellent, but really has no application other than playing rockabilly/surf, which I do very rarely. So, it was back in the box with this one, and off to be traded for my excellent Fender mini.

                      Slightly bigger and louder than I expected. Nice gain but not a metal amp. Stuck a tube screamer in front of it and rocked just fine (keeping the pedal level at 4 or below). Love the echo, has a large room reverb sound. Tends to fall over as the jack is on the top. Need to move the jack location and include a power supply but other than that it's great for travel or sitting around.
