    I don't usually write reviews, but this pedal really blew me away with the sound, build quality and features that it had for the money. This is my first tremolo pedal and I was looking for something cheap since I didn't think I was going to be using it so much. Low and behold, I'm addicted to the sound that this nifty little pedal creates. **There is a very slight volume boost when engaged but I do find this beneficial when playing with my band since I cut through the mix more** That being said, this pedal goes from subtle to hard-hitting tremolo breakup with a simple turn of a knob. Don't hesitate with buying this pedal because for the money, it doesn't get any better than this!
    It features a speed, depth," and a knob which lets you choose a hard or soft waveform. It claims to be ""true bypass"" which I do believe it to be since I don't notice any tone suck. I'm running 8 other true bypass pedals with the exception of my Nova Repeater which has a nice buffer. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a flashing LED light nor is it tap-tempo", but that's just me asking for more than what I paid for.
    Feels like a sturdy and heavy piece of die-cast metal that can be stepped on for years to come. The switch feels sturdy and reliable with a nice, loud click when pressed. The pots feel secure as well, not loose or flimsy.
    I can't stress how much of a steal/bargain this pedal really is. Most people would be diswayed by the brand or price (not saying that Danelectro is a bad effects company), but looking up YouTube demos and reviews really solidified my choice in purchasing this pedal.

    Super value for the money, it is true bypass, & good traditional tone. The only problem is - even with no trem effect dialed in - there is a very noticeable signal drop when engaged, which is unacceptable. There is a tiny level pot in the device as documented on the internet which could be adjusted, but a user must dismantle the pedal to get at that circuit board & would certainly void any warranty. I returned it & got the Voodoo Labs pedal with user-adjustable level balancing.

        Bought the tremolo unit a week ago, plugged it in my Peavey Renown 400 amp and the controls did what they said however the hum & added noise was unacceptable.

        I have a Gibson Discoverer Tremolo practice tube amp and there's no comparison. I sent it back.

              This pedal has an amazing tremolo sound and for the price, it can't be beat. Before I bought this pedal, I had a Guyatone tremolo pedal and the volume 'boost' was so awful (I believe they were trying to compensate for the typical volume drop-off that many tremolo pedals have). This pedal, however, has no volume boost or drop off and it sounds amazing with other pedals.

                    I have bought other Danelectro pedals and been happy. With this one I truly feel you get what you pay for. It functions but if I had it to do again I would have spent more and bought a higher quality unit.

                      This has a metal enclosure, sturdy switch, and quality (MUCH better than the old plastic Dano I have). It sounds great and does everything that you expect a tremolo pedal to do - easy to dial in with the sound you want (anywhere from subtle to trippy). It's kinda ugly but that's okay.

Very well built, excellent sound quality, and very well-built and durable. If you are looking for a tremelo pedal without having to spend mass amounts of cash, this is the pedal for you!

                                This is a decent pedal for what it does. A tremolo pedal.
                                I use this sparingly, but it gives me exactly what I need. The speed and rate options cover about anything you could want a trem to do, and its a bitter more solid than most Danalectro pedals I've seen. Never been a fan of their products, but this one is great. It has true bypass and isnt noisy at all. For the price, I dont think you can beat this one. Why pay 4 times as much for the same thing?
