    Hi!
    Obviously not! They weren't in production yet when he was still alive (may he rest in peace)...Also Cliff was unique, everybody is, for that matter...Check it out, and if you like it and/or it points your sound in the direction you desire...use it! But no gear in the world can make you sound or play like somebody else...

    Don't get me wrong - I think Danelectro's effects are great - I own their Cool Cat Stereo Chorus pedal and I love it! The Fab Tone is a great distortion pedal from what I've heard, and you probably can get some good bass distortion sounds out of it - I just wanted to say that you shouldn't expect to much...getting a good/perfect distortion sound with a bass is almost like rocket science....

    I own it and love it. It's exactly what I want in a distortion pedal. But, It dosent sound exactly like Cliff. I believe cliff was just overdriving a Mesa amp, with a morley wah.
