    Pretty good if you want to have a really different sound on one or two songs but then use a different distortion pedal for other songs. Its pretty cheap so you can afford this and another pedal. It gives a 60s psychodelic distortion sound that you can't easily get with other distortion pedals. It pretty much does the one thing so it's a one trick pony but its cheap so fun to have it in your pedalboard. Ive gotten compliments and other guitarists asking how i got that wierd hollowed out and phased out distortion sound - and when i point to the grilled cheese pedal they laugh.
    Not much to this pedal - level and resonance. The resonance changes the peak frequency of the hollowed out sound. This is kind of a hollow phased out distortion. You can't really change the distortion amount - just the overall level of the thing. This would have been a better pedal had they added a distortion knob. It pretty much just does the one thingy.
    Made of hard plastic. I've used mine now for four years and it's still in one piece. The hard plastic is surprisingly rugged - not that easy to break unless you slam it against a brick wall. The plastic knobs could easily be broken but the thing will still work as long as you can turn the posts. OK for a cheap pedal.
    Pretty good value for a cheap pedal. This should not be your only distortion pedal - you should have this only for that occasional "wierded-out" psycho pop, phased out 60s distortion. Use it for a few songs but have another distortion pedal. Its a good value because its so cheap you can easily afford this AND another distortion pedal.

    I deal a lot with Danelectro products. I've owned the Cool Cat, Daddy O, Fab Tone, Pepperoni, Pastrami, Hash Browns, Milkshake, Bacon & Eggs and of course, Grilled Cheese. I got this one in the mail and couldn't wait to plug it in. Boy was I upset when I tried this one. The settings are so limited. It took me a good hour to get a sound that was servicable for some low level punk. Way too much on the high end. Not a single trace of a bass sound. Imagine turning your amp to 10 on treble and 0 on bass. Not a single setting worth a damn. Great price. I would say it is a good pedal for a beginner with a low budget. Other than that, no thanks. Not even sure what I'll do with this thing now...wanna buy a pedal...LOL.

    Grilled Cheese indeed

    By Dennis LaPak

    from connecticut

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    not a bad investment - i'd have to say it will be coming in handing
    easy to use - would recommend getting the 9v adapter as it does seem to use up 9v batteries rather quickly
    i like the sound it gives me - nice levels of distortion
    good, reasonably priced purchase

    I'm a fan

    By Trip

    from Boston

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    Everything everybody else said about this thing is true. Think about the solo in Janis Joplin's "Summertime" only a bit more nasal. Some people just can't handle it. I like it a lot and use it all the time. Maybe you have to learn how to use it - not as much plug it in, leave it on as a Boss Distortion pedal. Anyway, mine has proven to be cheap, indestructable, and awesome for years now. I like when people ask "what is that thing - that's insane". Also, you don't have to run it flat out. All these cheap Dano pedals have a sweet spot or two - you have to find them.

    Just takes some imagination.

    By JCarrasco

    from Tyler, TX

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    This pedal is the only pedal I know that makes the sound that it does. I've bought this pedal twice. I bought it the first time when I was jsut a beginner then when I thought I'd graduated to big kid distortion pedals I got rid of it. But I never could get any of my high dollar units to sound like this one. So I bought it again. So yes, it's cheap, low quality and not suitable for most applications. But try it. You might be surprised. It just taked some imagination.

    The tin can effect

    By cadaver-rsHPt

    from Superior, WI

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    Have you ever replaced your amp's speakers with big tin cans? That's what people might think if you use this pedal. It has a distinctive tin can sound. The sound clips this web site offers and right on the money. Never mind what guitar you are playing - this pedal makes them all sound the same. If you are looking for a weird, alien like alternative sound, this pedal is perfect for you. If you want your guitar to sound more like a buzz saw, go ahead and order. Otherwise, hold your cash. 3 for features because there's only two knobs. 3 for quality because it's plastic but pretty hard to destroy. 5 for value because let's face it, it's pretty affordable. Overall this bad boy gets a whopping THREE POINT FIVE. Good day!

    dano pedal

    By johhny fish

    from goshen, ky

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    This is a great pedal and I was amazed at how good this is. It is not the pedal for every one because it is a diferent sounding distortion but for the music I play it is perfect (I play a lot of clasic rock and experimental). it is fairly strong (it hasent broken on me) but it is one of the plastic made danelectro pedals so it isn't as strong as the original metal casing ones. Overall this is a great pedal and would buy another if anything ever hapened to the one I have.

    Burnt Grilled Cheese

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    I have this and also the Hash Brown from Danelectro, I have no problem with the flanger but when I hook this distortion up, all I get is feedback in the form of an extremely high pitched squeal, not at all like theirs sounds.

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    I have been playing guitar for 5 years now and have many effects. I do not like this pedal. It is not very well built and sometimes work and sometimes does not. I have a Danelectro U2 guitar and that is great sounding and plays great. Skip it.

    It's good for what it is.

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-10 Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal:

    The Danelectro Grilled Cheese Distortion Pedal does what it's supposed to do and nothing more. The best thing about this pedal is that it makes it very easy to get a good '60s tone, and the "hollow tunnel thing" makes the sound unique from other pedals. The controls couldn't be simpler. You have the Level knob (for volume, not level of distortion) and the Resonance knob, which gives you an extremely trebley sound when turned to the left and vice-versa. However, this simplicity is also the pedal's downfall. The style of distortion is not practical. Don't buy this if you don't have any other distortion pedals because it is a specialty effect. For '60s-style music, by all means get a fuzz pedal first. So, if you have some extra cash and feel like trying a different effect, give the "hollow tunnel thing" a whirl.
