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!

- 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.
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.
Just 4 knobs and a switch. Very easy to use!
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
Heavy duty, bulletproof you name it this thing is solid,
