    The only one of them I've had any experience of was the Corned Beef Reverb, which was pretty nasty. It's more of a slap-back delay sound than a proper reverb, and had a habit of self-oscillating into a wall of hiss when I played bass through it.

    I've heard good reports of some Danelectro pedals, and bad reports for others, so I'd definitely try them out before buying.

    the compressor is great for bass or guitar. Nice for smoothing out a bass sound.

    I have the flanger and the compressor. The flanger is actually pretty cool. The compressor works, but is too noisey for my taste.

    I would ship both to you for $30.00 if your in the states.

    I have had, and hated the Milkshake chorus. (The full sized Cool Cat is much better)

    I have heard really good things about the Fish & Chips EQ and the PB&J Delay but have never tried them.
  5. Sorry Mattski but i usually would want to try out used stuff before i buy it, but can you or anybody else post some sound samples of these pedals, i would really appreciate it

    Hey Mattski, would you consider shipping flanger that to Canada?

    Honestly, atleast in this area, the Dan-O pedals flooded the market and there were shops selling them for around $10 each. I figure like most pedals in that price range it's hit and miss. At that price, if effects are your thing, it's worth a try I reckon.

    For what it's worth I have a friend that says he wouldn't use their pedals even if they were holding his dog hostage.... and he loves that dog.

    I've tried the T-bone distortion, and the Milkshake chorus, and hated both of them, sold them both on within a month.

    The main problem I found with them was that they could only produce a very small range of sounds, not very tweakable at all.

    This annoyed me most with the distortion pedal, I found that setting the distortion knob anywhere between 0% and 70% of its range had very little effect, and would go up in huge leaps for the last 30% or so.

    Can't speak for any of the other pedals though, but if I could get hold of them for $10 each I'm sure I'd give them a bit more of a go :)

    I have the AutoWah - French Fries.

    It's a good, clean and simple effect, that does what it's surposed to do.

    I like it :D
  11. can you post a sound clip of it?

    Well I haven't got any equipment to make a Hi Class recording of the sound, but I'll see what I can do.
