My Danelectro Chicken Salad arrived
I recently bought this Danelectro pedal on eBay. It looks well used, but that don't matter. As soon as I got home I plugged her in and wow, it's got some cool sounds in it!
It is called a vibrato pedal, but it sounds more like a vibe to me. It can do a fairly decent Uni-Vibe imitation, although to my ears it doesn't sound quite like Jimi's - I can't say I expected that from a $18 dollar pedal. Still, it's a cool sound and I dig it!
The sound is really fun to play with, especially with some overdrive or distortion. I could sit and play for hours with this pedal. It has a very nice swirly sound. It is not for just any song, but just for improving it's very inspirational. If you like vibe and leslie sounds, check this pedal out. It doesn't cost much but can be a very handy effect in the right situation.
I'll try and find the time to record some clips so you can hear it.
