The deal with these type batteries is the difference in the way hey discharge as opposed to the modern alkaline type. This does make older vintage type or pedals designed in the old school style sound better. Some folks hear the difference and those with tin ears can't. Tone freaks will love these batteries. They have a long life in the pedals, don't know about shelf life as I just buy four of the two packs at a time and that is about once a year for the pedals that require them. Have the high speed pedal board and new type pedals that sound good plugged into power but some pedals just like the battery and get there best performance from the old school Danno bats. They look kool too!

I bought 24 of these bad boys based on the reviews and value. I have to say, the battery I put into my classroom metronome is going on two months of daily use and is still working perfectly. I've used them in the active pickups on my guitar, and on several different effects pedals with absolute amazement at how long they last.

I decided to run a test by using two matching Boss tuner pedals and one of the Danelectros and a Duracell. I wouldn't call the tonal coloration drastic, but mellow is the best way to describe the tone variation.

Now, for the CON - I use a pair of Shure PG58 wireless mics daily when my school is preparing for plays. I slapped two of these bad boys into the mics and within 10 minutes they cut out and were dead(ish). I know "deadish?" what does that mean? Well, I could cut them off and back on again and they'd work fine - for another 10 minutes or so. Needless to say that just isn't going to to do the job.
I'm not going to return them - after all they're a great value and they work FOREVER in pedals (as well as my clock on the wall). I just have to suggest that you look for something else if your going to need to push juice into a handheld wireless mic.

Crisper Effects!!

By Duane Kramer

from The West Coast of America

About Me Quality Oriented

See all my reviews

Comments about Danelectro 9-Volt Vintage Style Batteries 2-Pack:

These are, in my experience, actually better in effects pedals than modern-style batteries. Few other reviews mention the difference; I've found they make a fuzz pedal a bit crisper and fuller, and less likely to get muddy and cut frequencies at volume. My wah-wah has a more even response across its range, with noticeably reduced annoying volume peaks at certain positions, and more clarity/transparency. Even the result of putting one of these in a 9V-powered condenser mic for recording was a bit crisper and clearer... Basically use these in anything that needs a bit more crispness or less muddiness.

    Matches up nice with Danelectro effects and the little mini amp. I don't really know if they are better or worse than a standard battery, but they look cool and are priced resonable.

    Danelectro 9 Volt Review

    By Jeremy

    from undisclosed

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Danelectro 9-Volt Vintage Style Batteries 2-Pack:

    Picked up a set of these just for fun. They seem to be a good quality battery, haven?t noticed them going down any faster than a standard store bought 9 volt. They look very cool, everyone who sees them laying around has to ask about them. If nothing else, try these out because they are the same price or cheaper than regular 9 volts and they look a lot better.

        Comments about Danelectro 9-Volt Vintage Style Batteries 2-Pack:

        I have a little tiny Danelectro guitar amplifier that has both echo and tremolo, plus a gain knob.
        After using alkaline batteries, I noticed that the amp distorted easily and I figured it was just a toy that got broken from volume abuse. After reading about the discharge rate being uniform with this type of application, I wonder if this battery would have avoided that.

                      These seem like good general use batteries. I have had one in my tuner now for awhile. I mainly bought them to round up an order to meet a discount requirement, and because they are cool looking. Really cool looking. Of course no one sees them once in service!!
