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?

The Danelectro Fish and Chips EQ may be an inexpensive dish, but it's NOT worth gambling on IMHO. For starters, the plastic body/jacks and exposed switch design are fragile. I've owned two of these pedals and gigged one for about three seasons. One day, with no warning, mine simply died (only makes an ear-shattering scream). The replacement I bought failed after a mere day of light use and made the same noise (note: I want my AXE to scream, not the pedal). I returned it to MF and paid the difference for a Boss, thus completing my Danelectro "catch and release."

After my negative experiences with the brand, I can't recommend Danelectro--not to newbies and not even to bargain-hounds. Musicians need reliable equipment. If an "economy pedal" fails and must be returned/replaced after only a few seasons (or days), then how economical is it really? For gear less-likely to let you down and cause you heartburn, pass on the Fish and Chips and instead pay the money for a Boss or MXR . . . at least until Danelectro decides to freshen up this offering.

A Deal.

By CheesyFakeName101

from The Beach, DE

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

This has been on my pedal board for about 5 years, I use it as a clean boost. The sliders all work fine, it's not noisy, the frequency bands are just right, if set flat there is no real audible difference between bypass/on. I'm impressed. My only real gripe is everytime I stepped on the footswitch my toe moved the sliders... so I drilled a small hole in the footswitch button (it's steel, how funny!) & screwed a strap-button into it. Now it sticks up like my other pedals. This thing has been great, & still is. Cool cheap clean boost for any instrument.

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.

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

    I wanted to make sure an equalization pedal would tame an unruly amp with too much mid to low freq. before I dropped a bunch a cash on a high priced one. Wow, what a difference this pedal made. I read some reviews about this being noisy, not a problem. I think I'll save my money and buy some more danelectro pedals.

    Ideal little gadget for fine tuning amplified guitar tones. Easy to use. Sounds good with almost no hiss or hum.

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

    I love retro stuff and Danelectro is all about retro..was excited about getting this..it was cheap and had good reviews. The first 2 weeks it was great..then it started getting very noisy. Then the high pitch squeals started..at gigs of course. Had to remove it from my set-up. It would probably work fine for home use...I wouldn't play shows with it.. replaced it with an old school MXR model.

      Great in a pinch for an acoustic pedalboard. Perfect secret weapon for gigs when the Amp isn't enough or you play through a PA. It's a little buzzy but it is what it is.

      I like this pedal, it was inexpensive so I gambled. I'm glad I did. It adds needed treble to my lead channel and acts like a booster for my clean channel. I like it, looks cool too.

      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!

      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.

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

        I have had this pedal for years. I can't remember how long. I perform 2-3 times a week every week and this pedal is always with me. I have used it in bar during snowy winters (meaning, possibly using it with wet shoes) to dry hot outside beach parties. It's still working and, working well. I use it for a lead boost only and have gotten some very sweet smooth sounds out of the eq and by raising the overall output, got some mean clean sounds. I use this for both full rock band shows and acoustic.

        I'm kind of looking for another eq that looks and feels a little beefier because this one feels cheap and dinky but, I did misplace it for a bit and panicked. I've even thought about buying a backup just incase it finally goes. I've had newer pedals that seem to be built way better that have died on me. This little guy keeps on going.

        If your using the AC adapter, make sure you get a proper adapter. It does not take a lot to power this pedal. I've powered mine at 200 m/a for the longest time and it's still going.
