Danelectro Retail Pedal Board

About 12-15 years ago I took lessons at a small local music store. The owner sold very very little guitars and accessories as he made most of his business from lessons alone. He did however have Danelectro pedal board that demonstrated all of the mini pedals like the PB&J delay, the tuna melt tremelo, and the grilled cheese distortion.

Are there many of these demo boards still out there? What would it be called? Where could I find one to buy?

dont. not worth the money you would have to spend. Also they probably only give them to stores as a point of sale display.

Build your own board and get different pedals. there are a lot of better pedal makes out there. Don't get me wrong. Danelectro make a handful of decent pedals but not all of them are great

Not true. They sold the entire board with the pedals, which should tell you how cheap they were! I remember them being in the MF catalog.

They're going for around 150 on eBay. I'd just get a multi-fx for that price. I just punched "danelectro board" into ebay and a bunch popped up.

I mean, they offered them for sale commercially. Whether they sold any is another question. I never saw one in the wild.

Some of the Dano pedals sounded surprisingly good, but the majority of them were just ok, and they were all made very very cheaply. Plastic jacks and housing, cheap knobs and footswitches. Not the most robust things in the world.
