    This 600ms delay is a dream came true for me;When I first started playing guitar I wanted a delay pedal but couldnt really afford one being everything decent was hiiigh hiiigghhh in price. Any of the cheaper delays sounded real bad. NOW Danelectro comes out with a 600ms delay pedal for 25 bucks? So yeah its 600ms (which can make tasty sounding lead style delays)and yeah its plastic housed but THE sound is there. The delays are not distored or pitched up or down, no noise when clicking on and off, controls are simple and to the point and has a small foot print for your pedal board. Cant ask for more can ya? I actually replaced my dd3 with this pedal and thinking about getting another to set as a slapback. Either way.. BUY IT!

    I've been playing electric guitar 48 years. I have nice professional delays on my pedalboard but wanted a knock around delay I could sit on an amp without hooking up a pedalboard--since a delay and a good tube amp are my main sound. All I was wanting was a slap back delay that I found with the repeat set to lowest setting (1 repeat), time set=10:00 and Delay=2:00 perfect for my delay needs. As far as the sound the pedal seems to add a bit of treble to the signal--so in my opinion the pedal does color the signal in that way a bit. It does sound kind of digital or a little sterile. All and all I can live with that for my purposes--it sounds overall pretty good to me. I hate a dry amp and this provides the extra bounce I need.

    The disappointment to me was when I hooked it up to my power supplys and got a loud humm. I get my power supplys from flea markets like for a dollar or 50 cents, rewire it for the negative center pin and positive outer and make sure I match the voltages and mA for each application. This has worked well with every pedal I've got except this one. I had to order the Dano DA-1 power supply because delays eat up batteries like crazy and batteries are very expensive these days. The DA-1 claims to be "hum free" so I haven't got it yet--so I hope it delivers hum free service. If I knew I was going to have to purchase a special power supply, I probably would have bought another pedal and spent the extra money on a higher end pedal. Since I discovered my mistake after the fact, I will live with it and mark it off as experiance.
    With Delay, Time and repeat settings, 9V adapter jack, on/off light and switch you got all the features of just about every delay. The controls are responsive to provide just what it says in the 600 ms range.
    Lets be honest, you can't provide a quality product for a very budget price. This is a platic housing and who knows how delicate the inputs, controls and switch is. Time will tell. I plan to handle this very delicatly and hope I get many years of use out of it. Last cheap Arion Delay I bought lasted about 3 years. I hope this one does a lot better.
    I chose this delay because I was looking for the most features for the least bucks. After very much research on the net I decided on this one. After using it I can say it pretty much delivers what it says. There were a few suprises listed in the overall rating below.

      Comments about Danelectro D-8 FAB Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

      The Danelectro D-8 FAB Delay is fine for what it is: a cheap delay pedal in a plastic housing. It isn't an Echorec, or even a Carbon Copy, and you shouldn't expect that for what you spend. Rather, what you should expect is given to you in spades by this insanely cheap little delay pedal: a nice little slapback echo for retro stylings. Will this replace any other delay pedals? Well, no. It's OK, but I'd never use it for anything other than a leave-it-on slapback sound. Luckily, what I'm doing right now requires that. I dial in the delay time to around 80 or 100 ms, set the repeats to 1.5 or 2, and the delay to somewhere near the top of its range. There, it gives the slapback I want, and doesn't color my sound too much.

      Yeah, it's digital, but it sounds OK for a cheap digital delay. I didn't expect very much and it far exceeded my expectations. It will never sound like a tape echo, or even a mid-priced analog delay, but the D-8 has a nice warm sound, and only adds a bit of color to your tone. It does what it does well. Just don't expect it to be your main delay pedal. Definitely a good choice if you already have a delay pedal that you plan to use as your "real" delay. Set this one permanently as your slapback, towards the end of your signal chain (but before your "real" delay) and have at it.

      I like it for what it is and what it does. It gave me one of the things I want out of my rig for what I paid. How much more can you ask? It showed up in pefect working condition. I have no idea how it does with batteries, since I never use them. I can't imagine anyone getting uptight about how many batteries one of these goes through when the danged thing was so cheap, and you can easily use a 9-volt adapter.

      I'll be gigging with it, and expect no problems, based on what I've seen. It seems sturdy, as plastic pedals go. I tend not to throw all my weight on pedals while wearing iron boots, so I have a hard time understanding how anyone breaks a pedal that way, to be honest. I'll update this review if anything funky happens at a gig.

          Comments about Danelectro D-8 FAB Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

          For the price, you can't go wrong. This is a great choice if you're looking to buy a delay pedal for the first time. It doesn't sound bad at all, and is super cheap.

          It's probably not ideal to use in a more "professional" setting, but for home use or as a backup, it's a good option.

          I've gigged with mine a decent amount and it doesn't show any wear.

          It certainly doesn't sound as good or have as much versatility as more expensive delays, but for the price, it's a great deal.

          This is a pretty good little box for the price easy to use and got a good sound after you play with the settings. down side is the plastic shell so you have to use care when transporting it but for a cheap slap back I would deffently recommend it to my friends.

              Comments about Danelectro D-8 FAB Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

              This pedal has been on my board for many years now.

              I can't say anything bad about it - I keep trying to replace it but there is very little that sounds better.

              It'll get short slap back delays all the way up to Pink Floyd "Run" style delay - and it sound AWESOME!

              I am building another pedal board and this pedal made it again - it sounds so good I can't go without it. It has become part of my sound.

              FYI - if you can't get a good sound out of this pedal you are doing something wrong - this is an easy pedal with only three knobs - an IN and an OUT - and power - how can it be hard?

              Buy one - NOW!

              My FAB chorus pedal is first then the FAB delay pedal is next. The added body and tone it adds to my 16 watt Kustom makes it sound really great.
