    I bought this pedal purely out of curiosity, and because I love delay pedals. It's probably not a true delay, as it has no delay time control, but it does produce a slap-back effect. If that is what you are looking for, then it is without a doubt the biggest bang for your buck. I had reservations about it being made of plastic, but the enclosure is quite rugged, with a heavy metal base plate. You would have to abuse it to damage the housing. It has only two control knobs, and tiny ones at that. Mix is on the left, and repeat is on the right as you look down at the pedal with the FAB Echo logo facing you. There are no numbers to indicate knob directions, and the "instruction sheet" doesn't tell you either. Turning the knobs clockwise when oriented as above increases the effects. Besides lacking knob numbers, the knob pointer marks are all but invisible in low light. I suppose some white paint would solve the problem, if you don't mind modifying your new pedal. The on/off switch is big enough to find with your foot, and seems to work as intended. It has a bright LED to let you know that the pedal is engaged. I noticed no noise, it's a quiet pedal. It is powered with a 9 volt battery, or a power adapter. The sticker on the base plate tells you not to use a power source which exceeds 300mA. This just doesn't make any sense to me. So are they saying not to put it on my pedal board and power my pedals with a 1 Spot (1700mA) or similar power source, or you will fry the pedal? With my limited understanding of electronics, I always thought that a pedal only consumed as many mA as it needed to operate. So being curious, I spent the next hour and a half trying to contact Danelectro customer support. This is where it got interesting. Apparently they are owned by the Evets Corporation in California. They list no phone number or email address on their internet site. After a thorough search on the web, I found several phone numbers, some disconnected and some with recorded messages. My question is, do I really want to buy pedals from a company that is so elusive? The FAB Echo seems to be an inexpensive, good pedal for slap-back (and not much else). I guess the company expects their customers to shell out the money, don't ask any questions about their product, and just throw it away and buy another one if it breaks. I do believe that I have bought my last one...

    For the price, not a bad pedal at all. As stated in other reviews, it makes a nice reverb effect. If you are looking for that "awesome" piece of gear you might want to invest a little more cash. This pedal is what it says it is...nothing more, nothing less.

            Comments about Danelectro Fab Echo Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I have several other FAB pedals. I am quite satified with the quality and sound of the FAB products. I bought the FAB Echo specifically to add some depth to the sound of my touch style guitar. It does exactly what I wanted it to do. So far I have only used it in a practice situation and powered by a battery. So, I cannot comment on how it would work live powered by a pedal board. It is very quiet on battery power.
            At the end of the day, this is a bare bones echo, well built with good sound quality.

                Great small FX box @ a nice price. The third Danelectro box I've purchased and used to a great extent, also have a Fab Metal, 6 years now and a Fab-Tone purchased twelve years back, all working fine. All used for home practice & recording. I'll be back for more.

                This is good little effect that helps my little practice amp that has no reverb sound better. Is the best I've ever heard no but for the price it really does the job.

                  An inexpensive way to play around with your guitar. Mix it with FAB Metal & get some awesome feedback echos going. If you're looking for equipment for professional recording or performance, you may want to aim higher than the least expensive effects you can find. If you are starting out, on a budget, or just looking for cheap fun- get it.
