I just bought one of these over a week ago after I acquired a vintage, 1988 Fender Studio 85 amp a few weeks ago. I was using a Digitech RP-50 for effects, but I had to trade that as part of the deal in order to get this amp so, I needed something for effects. I used to have one of these over 6 years ago when I was using a 1997 Crate GX-65 and it worked wonders with that amp , so when this came in, I was not let down at all. It now makes my amp sound more fuller and can hang with it's more expensive counterparts IMO.

This isn't really much of a chorus pedal. There are 2 things you can do with this: set all the knobs at max so you can make really strange alien noises (which is the only good thing about this pedal), or you can keep them moderately low so it can add a slight bit of depth, although this makes your changes your tone and makes it really annoying. You should really test this out before you buy it if you won't take my word for it. The only good thing that came out of this is that i found out that the Fab pedals are a bit more durable than they look, which might be useful in case I give a different one a try. Note : definetly get this pedal if you are going to start a band that dresses up as aliens.

    Comments about Danelectro FAB Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I love this pedal. Might not be as versatile as other more expensive pedals , but , for my playing , it's perfect. Love using it on Byrds tunes as it makes my guitar sound like a twelve string. Still discovering ways to incorporate in my playing. Also , it is very substantially made. Even though made of plastic , it ain't gonna break.! Plug in and PLAY ! Nuff Said.

      Cheap chorus experiment. Didn't really care for it on the acoustic. Kind of sure I don't like chorus itself, actually.

      Great for the hobby guitarist. It's a wonderful addition to my VHT Special 6 Ultra. No issues at all with knob placement or plastic housing. Buy it!

          This pedal does what it supposed to... nice analog sounding chorus. Not noisy, adds an amazing fullness to sound (specially solos) and shimmers nicely. Its a meat-and-potatoes chorus effect with standard tweaking. I don't have much concerns for durability despite the hard plastic enclosure and it appears quite sturdy. Happy with this purchase.. can't beat this value.

          Comments about Danelectro FAB Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

          How is this pedal selling for so cheap?!

          Yes, the pedal is plastic, but it is surprisingly sturdy. I cannot imagine this pedal breaking without seeing serious abuse, like being thrown against a wall repeatedly or smashed with a hammer.

          Yes, the pedal will give you a variety of alien abduction and seasick tones if that's your kink, but it has plenty of solid usable tones too. You will have to put down the hash pipe to play with the mix, depth, and speed dials a bit, but all of the dial settings from max to min are usable IF they are balanced against the others correctly. Many subtle and overt shades of chorus can easily be dialed in.

          While there are fewer chorus options when compared to the Digitech sea machine, the sound quality on the DanO remains indisputably, remarkably good. Better than some other more expensive chorus pedals, and chorus circuits on amps, that I have played with in the past!

          My primary complaint about this pedal is the location of the knobs: located in the rear, making the direction of max to min counter-intuitive, as well as difficult to pinch above the connector cables. Sorry DanO, you lost one whole star for this engineering fail!
