      Comments about Danelectro Hodad DH-1 Mini Amp:

      For the price, you can't beat this little amp! I bought this for camping in the summer. out of the box I played my Stratacoustic through it and was really impressed with the sound you can get out of this little 9V powered amp! The tremolo setting out of the box is really choppy so you will want to adjust it, the echo effect is pretty good. I only wish there was a good way to attach a shoulder strap or belt clip to this.

        Comments about Danelectro Hodad DH-1 Mini Amp:

        This tiny amp sounds great for the size. I only dinged it one star because, compared with the Danelectro Honeytone, it seems a little overpriced. The latter is only twenty on MF, while the Hodad is fifty. They are roughly the same size and can use the same AC adaptor (not included, recommended). Both use a 9v battery, and the Hodad will burn though it faster.

        There's no question that the Hodad has a better, richer sound. Its has two speakers vs. one for the Honeytone, and the difference in sound quality is apparent side-by-side. But.. it doesn't sound 2.5 times as good. There're also the extra effects, echo and tremolo, which are nice and work well enough, but they're not a huge deal for me.

        Both have tone, gain, and a headphone jack.

        Recommended for portable or quieter practicing. If you want the best bang for your buck and just need to hear yourself play, get the Honeytone. If fifty isn't too rich for you, the Hodad will deliver a greater quality and variety of sound.

              Slightly bigger and louder than I expected. Nice gain but not a metal amp. Stuck a tube screamer in front of it and rocked just fine (keeping the pedal level at 4 or below). Love the echo, has a large room reverb sound. Tends to fall over as the jack is on the top. Need to move the jack location and include a power supply but other than that it's great for travel or sitting around.

                The vibrato and echo features are over the top for a unit this size. Gets good volme and overdrive with the use of the DC adapter. This is a great upgrade from the Hodad II! Plus, al my mini amps look cool on myshelf!

                I am a bass player primarily but play just enough guitar to be dangerous. My Telecaster sounds great through this little devil!

                I bought this amp just out of curosity. Plus I had a 25.00 credit.
                I glad I did. I am currently on lock down in a one bedroom apartment in NOME ALASKA. It was sunny out yesterday and it was minus 50 below zero. Long story short I dont go out much.
                This amp sounds much bigger than it is. I wish they made a 20 watt model, I would buy it.Perfect for a road trip.
                If you want to have a 60s FLASH BACK buy this amp. You can get your groove on anywhere.
                KEEP ON JAMMIN.

                Comments about Danelectro Hodad DH-1 Mini Amp:

                Since my last review I have been playing my Gibson Dobro Lectric through this little jewel... It has both a P90 and cone mounted Fishman acoustic pickups on it and I was very pleased at the quality of the sound using one or the other or both.. Playing with the volume knob at full tilt and a small amount of gain using the acoustic pickup produces an amazingly clean acoustic sound but not very loud. Turning up the gain and adjusting 50 50 between the 2 pickups is a nice mix of clean overdrive and full tilt gain and the P90 and I get great sustain which is a lot of fun for me since I only play slide.

                Inconsistent reverb effect. Very nice otherwise

                Comments about Danelectro Hodad DH-1 Mini Amp:

                I have yet to use a guitar with this enjoyable toy because I bought it to play harp with... I like everything but I could live without the reverb and the echo features though I can get a decent slap back effect with the echo setting and with the tone set on the low side I can tame the reverb down a bit... The overdrive available by turning up the gain knob is great and using less of it results in a clean sound that is great for playing straight harp accompanying acoustic guitars and vocals....A reverb adjustment screw like the echo has would make this a much better value for anyone that uses reverb.. Overall I have to admit that it has gotten used a lot in the week or so that I have had it and I am very glad to own it.
