It's a great sounding analog delay pedal. Comparing to the vintage DM-2 or the recent DD-5, it costs a lot less. I really recommend it!
Model Year: 2001
Price: $100.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Timbres Instrumentos Musicais
Features:
- Controls: repeats, speed, mix and high cut knobs and a hi-lo switch.
- Powered by a 9V battery or PSA AC adapter (9V regulated).


It's an analog delay effect pedal. Quite big if compared to BOSS effects. It features everything a delay pedal usually has. It would help if it had the option of an external effect amount control switch, like the BOSS DD-5.
Sound Quality:
I play this using my complete rig (several stomp boxes and 2 amps - Fender and Marshall) and it sounds awsome! Very natural sound (remembers the old BOSS DM-2), much more natural than BOSS DD-3 or DD-5. You can get any kind of delay you want: rockabilly sounds, U2 delays or a warm delay for leads, for example.
Ease of Use:
Just 4 knobs and a switch. Very easy to use!
Durability:
The box itself is strong but the switch looks a little fragile. It's still working here but I never took this thing to a gig.

In a nutshell, awesome pedal soundwise; but hard to adjust if you are in a hurry between songs or in bad stage lighting. I would shop around before getting a new echo, but wouldn't be surprised if I came back to this model.
Price: $150.00 CDN (new)
Where Obtained: a store
Features:
Danecho has four turn controls and a two-way selector switch and this all gives you a vast range of reverb or echo effects. Get an adapter too if you buy this -- it eats batteries very quickly and if you are playing a gig and in the middle of a song, goodbye volume.
Sound Quality:
I use this mainly for slapback, and it does this great with my ASAT and Peavey Classic 30. It sounds drastically better in the effects loop than in the guitar-to-amp chain. I also use it for longer echos and volume swells and it does these things just swell. It is quiet and so far very dependable. It adds a lot of needed depth to my amp's single 10 inch speaker.
Ease of Use:
I love this effect's sound, but it is so hard to see the controls on a dark stage in between songs. I'm thinking of putting paper white out or some glow-in-the-dark gunk on the dials so I can see where the settings are easier. Of course this isn't a problem if you will just be using one setting all the time, but to get a wide range of effects for each song, mama mia, you better have the nightvision of a cat.
Durability:
Very, very solid. You would have to be a complete moron or insane genious to damage this effect.

I would buy this one again, if my got up and left. This bedal has the most excellent sound of any pedal in its class.
Price: $40.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Ebay
Features:
This is another in the standard line of Danelectro Pedals, those steel plated retro looking pedals. It's powered by a 9v battery or an AC wall wart, which I bought.
Sound Quality:
This is the last pedal in my sound chain before the amplifier. It's very quiet, doesn't introduce any spurious noise. This is a real full sounding echo. Which with the vaious controls you can set from a mild reverd to almost a delay or doubling like effect.
Ease of Use:
With four nobs and a hi cut switch, it's no the easiest to use. But the manual comes with some great suggested settings which I've pretty musch stuck to.
Durability:
Heavy duty, bulletproof you name it this thing is solid,
