Danelectro D3 FAB Metal

Metal-Distortion Effect UnitDanelectro has been known for years in the effect unit scene for cheap and original ideas, both in design and sound. With the FAB series, there are several interesting pedals (after the mini-series) at outrageously low prices.

The FAB Metal does what its name says: the modern Metal distortion with a powerful foundation and overtones to the point of rocking - to produce artificial harmonics and other harmonies! And if someone does not want to believe that you can produce something like this at this price, you should go listen to the sound samples on the Danelectro homepage!

  • The metal pedal at an incredible price
  • Colour grey-black
  • Controls: Level, Tone, Gain
  • Power supply optional (NT AC / PSA, Art.108096)
No JavaScript? No Audio Samples! :-(

Black and has character

nuferom, 13.08.2017
I am into distortion stacking to achieve unique tones, so tried adding this to my set. Not much to lose at the price!

With only three knobs, this is (thankfully) not just another clone of the infamous mid-scooping Metal Z...
The most interesting sound I've found so far is actually somewhere between fuzz and metal in character and is found with gain set to (or at least very near) minimum and the tone knob somewhere midway to fit the rest of your chain (and that includes your ears).

I see no problem with the plastic casing, and the switch feels a tad more convincing than on the Danelectro "Food" series. The positioning of the knobs may annoy some, but will force you to actually 'listen' to the tone rather than looking where the knobs are. Oh, and you get a black carrying pouch, always nice.

Good Little Pedal

19.08.2014
I Got this after playing with a friends denelectro pedal, and a passion for metal :D It impressed me a lot when i first got it, the tone it could give me out of my tiny amp amazed me! Now i have a Masrshall half stack but i still come back to this pedal if i need a ridiculous metal tone! It delivers so much gain it incredible, but sill gives some good clarity. and even though it is made of plastic I have been stomping on mine for over 6 years and its still going strong! and the controls being on the back mean they are only changed when you want them to. All in all this is a great little pedal for someone who like high gain on their guitar and maybe a little metal :)
