Better than any spring emulation
17.06.2014
If you need a consistent spring reverb that will always travel with you (so that you are not dependent on the built-in reverbs of the amps you play, and want to be foot-controllable), but you do not want to carry a pedalboard unfriendly reverb tank around, this is the best solution. The Danelectro Spring King is not completely analog, as it has a digital pre-delay chip, but it does not matter as long as the sound it produces is very natural and you can actually hear the srings vibrating in the sound coming out of your amp.
The footprint of the pedal is huge, but it has a real spring tank inside, so it is inevitable. The knobs are chicken-head, which makes it easy to control the parameters with your foot between or during songs.
The pedal is not very versatile, as it gets you only 1 type of reverb - spring - but if it is what you are looking for, you won't be disappointed, as it is better than digital any spring emulation in a reasonable price range, and has loads of decay on-tap.
I must admit though that I ended up buying a digital pedal with a smaller footprint and more versatility, though it cannot quite replace the Danelectro. I would still highly recommend this pedal for Spring reverb lovers, especially guitarists playing surf music.

Surf's up
GlenS, 02.05.2015
I have had this pedal for a few years now (bought way back in 2009) and until recently its been a mainstay on my effects board, I say recently because I finally purchased a real Fender tube reverb unit making this little guy a bit obsolete.
However until the new unit arrived this managed to cover all the splashy surf spring sounds I needed and it did it very well at a fairly good price. Its much better than the digital pedals mainly because it has a real spring inside so every time its working its ever so slightly random and more organic sounding. Even the kick pad is a bit of fun when you want that thunderous crash sound effect so often used in surf music.

"Unique" looking!...sounds quite good too...
09.05.2016
Bit of a big bugger isn't it?...and there is I gather some digital magic going on in there though the springs are "real"....
I've only used it with practice amps as my bigger ones all have reverb trays built in or I'll take an FRV to save space but its a decent sounding unit for that purpose...possibly a little thin but then its being used with amps in the 5W Zone with cheap 6" speakers...
Get a PSU...but then that holds for any and all Reverb/Echo analogue or digital I've used..so I'm not counting that as a "con"
It takes up a lot of real estate,more than the size of the spring tray seems to warrant which could be an issue for placement in a live rig...
The "kickpad" is kind of a gimmick but may as well have it as not!...probably as much to prove to us the springs are working as anything else!
The folded steel case is rock solid and I've always liked the switching used by Dano on their older pedals...reacts to even a light touch and is very positive in action...
Overall its actually a more practical unit than the slightly cheesy looks suggest and more analogue than any others that I'm aware of at this price point if you're a digiphobe...

Best spring reverb pedal You can get !
Ernests, 12.11.2019
Pros :
Great, legitimate old spring reverb-tube amp sound
Very sturdy ! All knobs are great etc etc
Cons :
The size and weight are a bit uncomfortable. Because its an real SPRING tank ! When I bought a pedal bag there where no problems, but when I had to take it to gigs in a backpack it was pretty heavy.

Anyways if You are searching for the best portable spring tank or the most legitimate spring tank sound in Your non-tube amp, then this is the real deal. Would suggest this pedal to anyone, loving it !
