    This is a solid pedal for the price. With some tweaking the FAB Fuzz has a couple of useable/situational tones. It wouldn't surprise me to see someone lining this next a boutique stompbox in their pedalboard, it has that type of tone. Did I also mention how cool the Purple Sparkle finish looks?
    Looking down at the pedal from the floor the knobs are left to right Level, Fuzz, Tone. Under the Fuzz control is a 9V adaptor input. On the bottom is a 9V battery compartment with a snap cover. Pretty standard. Effect is housed in a metal casing with a Purple Sparkle finish, which I do like.
    Any guitar pedal housed in a metal casing is always a good thing from a durability standpoint. Knobs and 9V adaptor input are tightly spaced, which can be a pain even for players with small hands. Also, the knobs being placed on the front side rather than the top of the pedal makes on-the-fly tonal adjustments difficult. Tonewise, this pedal is very bright. Because of this the pedal gets a bit noisy, although turning down the Tone knob helps a bit. I'd also recommend using the FAB fuzz with a darker/midrangy sounding amp. The lower fuzz settings on this pedal seem geared more towards Texas-Blues/SRV type tones, while higher fuzz settings lead to the buzzy/flatulent voices commonly found in most fuzz boxes. My biggest gripe about the FAB Fuzz is the lacks the singing/blooming sustain found on some of its cousins like the FAB Overdrive, Cool Cat Drive, and Cool Cat Fuzz. Even at higher gain settings notes and chords start out well, then they just seem to whither and die at a certain point.
    Given enough time a decent guitarist could find the shortcomings in most guitar stompboxes, high or low end. Despite its design and sonic flaws, the FAB Fuzz is still very useable for a pedal that costs less than $30. Kudos to Danelectro for continuing to improve the sonic character of their products while maintaining a reasonable price point.

    I tried this fuzz on bass guitar first. It's a very bright pedal so I had to turn the tone all the way down. The fuzz knob is like two modes. 1-5 is mild to moderate and 6-10 are not useful. I had the fuzz on 1 for bass. For guitar, an SG and a Strat, it was still too bright so down with the tone again. The fuzz comes to life at 5 and anything past 5 is overkill on rhythm. You could go past 5 for lead though. I wouldn't buy it again if it were stolen. Save your money and get a better one.

      Comments about Danelectro D-7 FAB Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Strange pedal. Sounds more like a distortion than a fuzz to my ears unless the gain is turned up near max, and even then the notes bizarrely fizz out after a second or two. Makes it great for quick, choppy chords/notes, but not for stuff I'd normally use a fuzz for. Incredibly treble-y, even with the tone rolled all the way down and run through my dark Marshall amp. All that being said, its cheap, and its surprisingly well made, and it has it's own unique voice. If you're somebody looking for your first fuzz pedal, look elsewhere. I know I've made this all sound very negative, but honestly I like the little thing for what it is, just don't kid yourself into thinking it's something more than a cheap toy.

          Comments about Danelectro D-7 FAB Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I'm looking for the fuzz sound of the 60's that can be heard on songs like In Da Gadda Da Vidda, Spirit in the Sky, Revolution, etc. I had an Ibenez fuzz and it was awful, especially for the price. The Danelectro fuzz is much better, although not quite raunchy enough; but I like it, especially the unexpected volume boast. For the small price, it is very nice. Next up is the Mini Mod Fuzzer which I just ordered. Will let ya know. Rock on!

              The tone won't cut the highs enough, and the result is too bright for my setup.

                Comments about Danelectro D-7 FAB Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

                This is an update to my last review. I've had this pedal a couple of months now. If you have a really bright amp I would avoid this pedal unless you have a good eq. If you have a darker amp this pedal can rock. I was using a Peavey VK112 with a 12AT7 phase inverter tube and Celestion Rocket 50 speaker and it was all treble. I now have a Kustom 4x12 loaded with Celestion Super 65s. I'm using an Ibanez TSA15H head in 5W and 15W mode and this pedal rules. It was too bright for bass too but it works if you have a bass eq and even better with a bass limiter.

                    I'm going to go ahead and give this five stars. You should already know that this isn't as good as the EHX.
                    I put it in front of my Hot Rod Deville drive channel, more gain engaged. I try to emulate an old school Marshall with my amp's high gain channel. I put the fuzz on about 8 and adjusted the volume and tone. I sounds really, really good but sounds a little bland compared to my Tube Scream. I would definitely recommend this pedal to anybody on a budget. You could play gigs with this thing if you had a decent amplifier.

                        Get your amp pumped up, your overdrive cranking - and then wrap a blanket around the strings - and you have this effect. I use it very little, but it's great when I want a warm, deep, muted tone.

                        OK, this isn't as warm as my fuzz face, and doesn't have the gain of the Big Muff, but for $26 I had to try it. It has a beautiful warm fuzz sound. my only . . . . not complaint. . . but . . It doesn't have much gain. you can only dial in so much fuzz. I wish the fuzz knob went to 15 instead of 10, but it's a great pedal none the less. for the money, this is a fantastic deal.

                        If danelectro offers other pedals, I'll still consider them
                        The unit works smoothly, however, it reaches the sound of a blown speaker too quickly to adjust
                        into it and work out a sound compatible with the amp. I used it on two amps, one tube and one transistor, and the tube amp put out a better sound. With much adjustment I got improved
                        sound out of it.
                        The black screw used to tighten the bottom into the top requires much work to align
                        I own several danelectro pedals. For the price, you get what you buy.
