Sound — 7
I don't have a certain style of playing so I play some rock, alternative, funk, soloing, country, and whatever I feel like at the time. You control it with the volume controls on your guitar when it is being used alone as a mini amp. I haven't had the chance to acctually use it as a distortion pedal, hooked up to another amp, but from what I hear it does it's job ok. It is what I would expect from a effect with a tiny speaker. It does have the possiblility to be loud but it doesnt't sound that great loud, it gets all staticy. Again I haven't used it through a larger amp, it might sound much better.
Overall Impression — 9
For a small inexpensive guitar distortion with a built in speaker and the capeability to be used alone, it is worth what it cost. I'm not saying that it is the best thing I have ever bought and eveyone should go buy it, but I am saying that it is worth the money and maby a little bit more. It is fine for what I have used it for (playing with friends in random spots around town and for trips that I couldn't bring a regular amp). I would definitly buy another Danelectro product and I plan on buying some more effects from them. It could use a volume control on the acctual unit though. For it's size it is very very good, I mean the thing is tiny after all.
Reliability & Durability — 10
It is dependable to play good if it has good batterys in it, enless you have it plugged in the wall which it works non-stop fine. It has been droped from up fairly high and steped on too, and so far it still looks and works fine. I didn't use it for a long time and when I plugged it back in it worked just fine.
Ease of Use — 9
Not to much to say about features, it is a guitar effect, and has a built in speaker so it can be used alone. It has a single buttion on the front with a small speaker and one green light. On the top side there is an input and output standard jacks and also a DC 9Volt in spot. It is definitly small enough to fit into my pocket and has a reall smooth classic look to it.
