Sound — 8
A Fender Mexican Stratocaster. For some reason, if I plug certain cables into it certain ways, it squeals and causes nasty amounts of feedback. I haven't figured that one out yet. You only get weak tone if you have no volume from the guitar and turn the tone pot all the way down. I don't fiddle with a certain sound much. I just match a reverb to make a fatter, fuller sound to match the artists that I listen to.
Overall Impression — 7
I play almost anything rock, metal, acoustic, folk, punk, and this pedal goes well with all of them. I love the two knob setup. I hate the fact that I hit the knobs when I hit the footswitch. The knobs need to be recessed, kind like Boss pedals. That'd ease my pain when I play barefoot. Those knobs can bruise. I wish it had more than just reverb. A nice echo would be really cool.
Reliability & Durability — 8
If your cables make it feedback, no. I would use another analog reverb, or my Zoom 05 #2. Quite durable though. These pedals take a huge beating and keep working. I've even seen examples of one that had a half full beer can spilled on it. Dry it out, and it still works. I was very impressed.
Ease of Use — 10
It's easy to get a good sound. From a gentle mid-size room reverb, to a stadium reverb, to a near shower room reverb, it can do it all. Plus, only two knobs and a footswitch. Can't get much simpler. I borrowed it, no manual. I didn't need one though. It is quite easy to figure out. That's what I love about Dano pedals. They don't sound like a $400 effects unit, but, they're easy to use.
