Sound — 10
I use my Westfield E1000 & Maridian SKAK10A amp with it, I must say, again, amazing, you only ever get crackling when you have the drive on the amp swithched on, and also the treble and bass are right up. The sound quality never fades and the pedal allows you to get the sounds from the song "American Idiot" by Green Day, and also "Dark Of The Matinee" by Franz Ferdinand, I haven't tried any other songs that actually use the distortion effects, but like to play anything with it! Sweet Child O' Mine sonds awesome with it as well.
Overall Impression — 10
Now I'm into the rock scene, so this pedal matches my needs perfectly, I've only been playing 1 and a 1/2 to 2 years now, but I still felt I needed this, I don't own any other pedals at the moment, but I'm planning on getting a Wah-Wah Pedal form my local shop, Ace Acoustics, where I got this pedal from. I don't feel as though I needed to ask any questions before buying, I got exactly what I expected. If my pedal did get lost or stolen I would for sure get another one! The only aspect of it I dont like is proboally its colour, but who cares aobut that? I cant compare it to anything that I don't own, and I don't think I would like to either. The only thing I wish it had would be built in Wah, but thats not gonna happen.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This is one pedal I would use in my gigs without back up for sure. Mainly because I know it wont fail on me half way through. Very dependable, and very reliable!

I already knew the Danelectro range were good, but my god when you actually buy one you uderstand exactly what I mean by holy hell this is great. The T-Bone Distortion pedal is a purple distortion pedal with attitude, it is just siimply awesome, for the songs you need to play with distortion, and you dont have a pedal, dont rush out and buy an expensive one, the T-Bone is good enough at 24.99! So the colour may not be to your delight but the price sure is. And considering it won the "Editors guitar player's Pick award" you can tell its going to be good! The manual with it suggests some starter/ideal settings for you, but if you are like me, you just like to fiddle about and get it how you want it. Good stuff!
