I recently reviewed the Danelectro 'budget-priced' EQ-pedal (Fish 'n' Chips) favorably; adding to this is now that company's equally inexpensive overdrive-pedal (T-bone): the pedals are used in conjunction, for voice and harmonica respectively, and as shown in photo.
Basically I'm attempting to emulate a pseudo-1930s radio sound. Since the purposes for the effects pedals is not the norm (that is, guitar-based), if nothing new as an idea, it might serve others looking to create a similar sonic envelope. (Even more unusually, the two sources are then combined as one signal sent to the mixer, via 1/4 inch cable.)
Anyway, review-wise, kudos for 'T-bone' and both of these Danelectro products; the idea works well enough in a live performance situation. (I'll likely get the pedal board to place the two effects and so power with a single wall-wart.)

i bought this as a beginner with no idea about pedals. now that i'm a lot better and i know what music sounds like, i have basically bought all new dist pedals. so for a beginner, probably don't buy it. it's cheap, but when it comes to pedals, you get what you pay for. you'll find yourself regretting you ever paid for this. if you're looking for a good buy for about this price, get a digitech grunge distortion. it's kinda got this sound, but 10x better.

T-Bone Love

By jzero

Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

It's a tiny plastic box of sweet funky love! The T-Bone has a wonderful vintage distortion sound. If you've got an otherwise good amp with junky distortion, the T-Bone is the perfect mate. It also is nice to throw inline in front of your amp distortion to get that super-saturated sound. I'd give it all top marks if the case were metal and slightly larger. In spite of its small size, I find the switch works much better than Boss pedals. The low price of these puppies makes them a gift to humanity in my eyes.

Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

I wasn't expecting much for the price, but and decided to give it a shot. I was pleasantly suprised. It has that awesome "right on the edge of feedback" tone. I would recommend it to anyone.

Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

This pedal is surprisingly good.It is very muffled though so make shure that have your amp clean set good just a little tip.I play through a Peavey Valve King 112 I dont like this pedal for rythm all the time but its good for like Sabbath and leads and things like that.But Nice though.

    I bought this thing 2 years ago. Let me tell you all now, Save Your Money! This things tone is awefull. The overall design is junk and it eats through your batteries realy quickly. Buy a Digi Tech, Boss, or even Line 6 effect pedal.

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    This was the first pedal I ever bought and honestly, well I wish I would have just saved my money and bought a better one. Not only is the tone aweful but both knobs popped off of it. If your looking for a good pedal try Digitech, or Boss. Not this piece of junk.

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    ... Well, it works. The battery lasts some-what long, but this thing buzzes (but I have noise gate on my Line 6 and that cancels out the buzz). overall, Unless you have noise gate or something like that, i wouldn't buy this.

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    don't buy this hunk of junk. it's plastic, cheap, and sounds like utter trash. It has no tonal qualities whatsoever, and totally rapes your guitar tone. it sounds like cheesy chunky fat fluttery nasty grinding fuzz distortion and it's almost worse than the grilled cheese. In fact it's just like the grilled cheese without the nasty fixed wah. Most of the dano mini's suck, and this one is no different. Except maybe worse than all the others. Stay away!!!

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    I really wished I read the reviews on this before I bought it. A complete waste of money. I tried every way to tune the knobs differently and it sounds exactly the same. And the sound you do get is full of base and no treble. Not very defined sound at all. Don't waste your money.

    By coolguy 20

    from ct

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    This pedal really isn't that bad, you really get bang for your buck. I own a big muff, and this pedal sounds pretty similar, this pedal has a decent sound to it, and it really does sound vintage, I wouldn't really recomend this pedal to anyone, but if you have a low budget, you should get this, but if you don't get a big muff, or a digitech bad monkey.

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    I don't like that it doesn't have a tone control, and if you turn the level to about 3/4 it gets scratchy (in a not good way). Also, I can't get much palm-muting out of it, but that might be that my guitar isn't very twangy because when I turn on my wah to get twang I can palm mute. Overall, the distortion is great and meaty, and for the price it can't be beat (I got mine in a mini pack).

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    The features are limited. Only level and distortion but I think the tone is awesome either way. Very meaty tone to it and it works wonders with my Crybaby. I line this guy up with my Tubescreamer and my Daddy-O and it gives me a nice third outlet for overdrive/distortion. One other complaint I have is that this pedal is a little tough to trigger with cowboy boots but as long as you wear traditional shoes then you'll be fine. I couldn't be happier with the tone though.

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    Its a good distortion, ive had it for 5 months now and its great for giving me that Nirvana type sound, its not stage material, it could have more sustain and a little more gain. All in all this is a nice pedal for the price, I do recommend this.

    I use this pedal and for the price it's a solid bargain. I use it for a more over the top distortion than my Tubescreamer will give me. Danelectro products perform well on stage. I read another review that ragged on this pedal, I disagree..It's a great pedal!

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    It's not so bad if it had a tone knob. I'm not that mad about buying it though because it's so cheap but it's still not worth it. It also has way to much bass especially for my taste and the feedback is pretty bad. It's not a good buy, if your looking for a cheap pedal get a BOSS DS-1.

    Comments about Danelectro DJ-2 T-Bone Distortion Pedal:

    My friend has one, and I played my les paul through it and a '67 marshall stack with a vox wah and an arbiter fuzz face and I didn't like it. It also looks like something you would get in a happy meal or something. I took the arbiter off and it still sounded like total junk. Just use an arbiter fuzz face alone with a wah and you'll sound like hendrix.
