Danelectro Daddy-O overdrive

They look old but they're not. The name Danelectro goes back to the 50's when they were known for a good value for guitars. They missed the pedal bandwagon during the golden age of effects but reinvented itself in the mid-90's when pedals became popular again. They were still a good value for the money. The larger units were housed in a heavy-metal enclosure and were manufactured in China. The smaller units were plastic and more affordable and the larger ones didn't sell that well due to it's inexpensive reputation. You couldn't fool the masses with it's retro look but these devices will one-day be the classic it was intended to be. The Daddy-O has a great tubey Fender sound that can crank any vintage tube amp with smooth overdrive. For more info on the current line up of effects see....
