Hey, I was looking at effects, and noticed the danelectro fab pedals are really cheap, but Iwanted to know if they were really any good.

I think a lot of them are pretty good. I have the Fish & Chips and am very happy with it.

That said, the low cost is glaringly apparent in the housing. These things will not last if you're energetic in your playing or take them out a lot.

TL;DR: Insides good, outsides bad.

I know some people rehouse their Danos, but that's probably only really for the TOD V1. At that point you're already looking at at least EHX prices (which generally aren't much more and are worth the cost, btw).

I've owned a lot of the FAB pedals. Some of them are okay. The red distortion and silver overdrive don't sound very good. The chorus and flanger are probably the best sounding of the bunch but they don't have much range in terms of settings.


That said, the pedals are only 20 bucks, but if you're looking for a cheaper overdrive pedal I would recommend spending a little bit of extra cash on something like a Digitech Bad Monkey or a Boss Super Overdrive. Those 2 pedals sound pretty damn good considering their lower price point. They're also pedals you might still appreciate when you get more experienced as a guitar player compared to the FAB ones.

The fab flanger is actually good I have had mine for almost 3 years now. I annother fab pedal break on me but that was due to battery leakage.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

Just a general rule of thumb OP, any sort of gain/drive pedals (overdrives, distortions, whatever) sound terrible if they're really cheap. ODs start getting decent around $50, Distortions start getting good around $120-150.

Most of the Dano FAB pedals sound pretty good but the internals look like that mousetrap game. For just experimenting with different effects at home for the first time they are a fairly good choice really.

How many threads about pedals are you going to start before you listen to the advice that's being given in them all?

You're still a learner, focus on learning. You don't need pedals for that.
