I like DanElectro hardware, particularly its 'retro' style. Although a non-metal body, the slider controls are firm and tight with a decent selection of frequency notches (as well as separate gain slider). Only first-impression negative may be it's a bit too small; but if that's why it's comparatively inexpensive, then it's all good.
Of course it is new, and not extensively road-tested, nor used long enough to judge durability—that'll just take time. But for the price, hard to find fault, since it does as advertised. What more can you really ask?

I had this pedal for a few months and it worked great...I was basically using it to achieve a little more sparkle with my Hot Rod Deluxe. However, last week I'm practicing with the band and I started to get a horrible noise out of my chain. After examining all my cables and pedals I found out it was the Fish n Chips causing the problems...Basically the unit overloaded and got fried, and I had it at the start of my chain, set with no boost at all. Took it home and it smelled like burnt plastic. Now its complete junk - didn't even get to gig with it.Bottom line, works ok - but it doesn't last. I'd say spend the extra money if you are serious about your setup.

      Comments about Danelectro DJ14 Fish and Chips 7-Band EQ Pedal:

      This pedal is an incredibly affordable solid EQ. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a 7-band EQ, regardless of their budget. It will accomplish anything that more expensive EQs will. Even though it's plastic, it's pretty sturdy--mine's never given me a hint of trouble. The bottom line is that you need this pedal. It's great for shaping your sound, and there's no financial risk.

          I purchased two. I bought the first one and it was working fine, so I purchased a second one. The first one began to have a loud ringing tone in it and then the second did the same. This all happened within a month.

          I wanted to try a eq to tweek my sound. I was going to buy a more expensive one, but this works great. Even though its plastic case, its still very functional. Good buy, looks pretty retro.

          Comments about Danelectro DJ14 Fish and Chips 7-Band EQ Pedal:

          Got this instead of the more expensive EQ's (Boss,MXR,ETC) to see if an EQ would work for my application...and it does! I'm using it in front of my amp as a volume/mid boost for leads and it's really helped my get more "cut" on a noisy stage. When used this way (in front, not through an effects loop) it also adds some gain but also some hiss...but not really any more than some amp's gain stages when they're run "hot"...so it doesn't bother me. You sure don't notice it in a live situation when you're just kicking it on for leads. I did take some "sticky tack" and kind of wrapped it around the sliders to keep from kicking it out of whack when I step on it...looks awful but it works!

          I worry a bit about the build of the thing but so far no problems! If it does fail on me, I'm not sure I'd upgrade or just get another one of these...we'll see I guess!

          Hope my "two cents" helps!

            The VHT Special 6 combo 1x10 and Excelsior 1x15 amp benefit greatly from this seven band eq. Takes all the boxy sound out. Adds a complex and sophisticated tone to my combo amps that lack sufficient equalization. It's plastic, but it has a good solid feel. No added noise. I'll probably get a second one. Great price.

            Comments about Danelectro DJ14 Fish and Chips 7-Band EQ Pedal:

            I own a Peavey 5150 2x12 combo amp and I was looking for something to shape my sound and control unwanted noise. I had a credit on my MF account and this pedal was really inexpensive so I figured why not give it a shot. I had a few buddies tell me they used this pedal and it more than did the trick for them and I read some good reviews as well so I was willing to take the risk. My first impression of this pedal was the casing was just hard plastic, but two thing that went through my mind with that was you get what you pay for so for it's price I can't complain and I'm only using this pedal through my effects loops so it's not likely to fall and break where I have it placed and even it if did at least I didn't pay a lot. Since it's places on top of the amp with a carpet floor and it did fall once because I bumped it no damage at all occurred so it was sturdier than I though it would be. This pedal also came with a battery as well which was cool, I didn't have to run to the store and buy one which was nice because I could get right to the music. It also does have a AC adaptor as well which is another nice touch so you don't have to replace batteries a lot, I do recommend unplugging this pedal every time you're not using it. Even though it may be turned off if the cords are plugged in it still can drain the battery just as these same cords drain batteries from active guitars as well. The controls were a little firm feeling and a tad hard to move, but still workable. The bypass buttom was kind of dull feeling, but again at least workable. The sound it added I'd say is good, but not excellent. Again for the price you pay I'd say excellent if that factor is added in. I know of some amp pedals can be a hit or miss because certain amps can be funny how they respond to some pedals, but this pedal works great through my Peavey 5150 combo and even better through the effects loop. I originally got this pedal to shape my tone and to clean up some unwanted noise, but this pedal I later realized is also great signal booster. When I ran this pedal through my chunch channel on my amp and enagad this pedal I was able to achieve an actually good heavy metal tone which I would of normally had to get an overdrive pedal to do. After realizing that I'm going to get a second one for that purpose, it's a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a Ibanez TS or a Boss DS-1 and I think it works better too(but that's only my opinion and others may disagree). I think you could possible use this for live gigs, but I'd try it at practice first to see if it holds up and you may want to buy a spare one in case it breaks, but for money you pay I don't see that being a problem.

              I use this with a VHT Special 6 Combo and an Excelsior. This pedal makes the amps sound fantastic. Like a secret weapon. Like a boutique amp. If you have an amp with a boxy sound, this cures it. This pedal is so good. Can't believe how good this sounds.

              Comments about Danelectro DJ14 Fish and Chips 7-Band EQ Pedal:

              This pedal really helps me shape my tone further. The three-band EQ on my amp wasn't enough, and I really needed something to sculpt the sound further. This little guy does the trick and didn't hurt my wallet. Produces very little noise on my rig. Once you fiddle with the settings on the pedal and on your amp, you'll get everything set how you want it and there will be an instant increase in tone quality once you switch it on. Good for any genre of music - I use it to improve my tone for everything from death metal to classic rock and clean guitar playing.

              CONS - it is in a plastic housing, which doesn't quite feel flimsy, but not as sturdy as a metal stompbox. The button is somewhat difficult to engage and you must be careful not to crush the pedal.

              This pedal adds to the fun of playing and makes my already good tone great. I recommend it. My friend, who I play guitar with regularly, loves it.
