Distortion ground effect deviceDanelectro has been known in the field of flooring for years for cheap and original ideas, both in terms of design and sound. With the FAB series, again there are interesting pedals (at the mini-series) at incredibly low prices. The FAB Distortion is a ground distortion that produces the distortion sound of the legendary 70's. Not quite as smooth as classic overdrives, but also not the solidity of modern metal aggregates; But sensitive to dynamic finesse and subtle overtones - like the Japanese model from the later seventies. And if anyone doesn't believe that you can produce something sensible at this price, you should get the sound samples on the Danelectro homepage and see for yourself!
The distortion with the legendary 70's sound
Colour: Burgundy Red
Controls: Level, Tone / Gain
Power supply optional (Thomann NT AC / PSA, 108096)
It is well-built, feels like it could take some punishment and has a fairly small footprint.
Was surprised by the sound. Managed to get some very pleasant tones out of this with very little effort.
If I was being very nitpicky (which I am) I'd say that I wasn't in love with the placement of the knobs. It's in no way a deal-breaker. And, let's face it, you're probably going to find a tone you like and never touch the knobs again.
This pedal has a smooth distortion. It has alot of gain and you can overdrive it alot, but it never loses control. The sound is a little high on treble and low on the lower frequencies. So the overall sound is bright and buzzing with a smooth edge. It is made of plastic so it seems alittle fragile, but I have stomped on it hundreds of times and it is still here so it is alot tougher than it loooks. It can run for a long time on a 9v battery, so no need for frequent battery changes. Overall I think this is a good pedal with alot of distortion, it just does not have the depth of more expensive pedals.
