One of those Fab Tones. Picked it up used for 20 bucks. Not bad. So far Im liking it!
Tell us again after a week... those pedals don't seem to last very long.
Hope your wrong because I bought one a week ago. But I don't plan on playing live
Now, I've had my FabTones since just about the first week they came out. Still working fine. The whole 'stomp' thing doesn't need to be taken so literally...
Ive had a Cool Cat since the mid 90s. No problems. This is one of those big metal ones not the plastic ones.
Eh, even if it does......oh well ....it was 20 bucks.
If he bought it used and it's functioning, it's probably good to go unless he swims with it or drives over it.
I have several FAB pedals. I bought them for goofing with. 2 years of casual years.......no trouble
I have the Fab echo. No it's not fancy, nor built like a tank, but it sounds very cool and, for the tiny sum I paid for it, it wouldn't worry me if it didn't last all that long.
So are you guys talking about those plastic cased ones? Ive never had any of those. Just those big metal ones.
They also sound good with synths, drum machines and vocals.
I have the red plastic Fab Echo. Simple and sounds good. I've had it over a year and it is still working. I also have the silver plastic Fab Overdrive, but found it to be a muddy mess, so it it sits in a drawer. Still working, should I ever take leave of my senses and plug into it.
^^^ I don't gig with it (don't know why) but the little red FAB Distortion actually has a very good rich OD>distortion and a lot of range in its controls-powerful little sucker! $15!
I have three of the Cool Cat pedals and love them, although, for balance, I also tried three of the mini-"food" pedals and didn't like any of them.
Absolutely LOVE my Danelectro Tuna Melt Tremolo.
Im liking it so far. Im more of a mild overdrive guy, but a good nasty distorton is always good to have in the arsenal.
Its replasing my DS1 which is starting to have problems. Its like 15 years old.
I'll buy almost any pedal for 20 bucks, ya know. This one I think is worth it!
The cats, and "dan-echo"s are the only ones that I can actually trust. The FAB series are kind of cheap and plastic - doesn't have my trust.
I love my danecho and the fish n chips eq. The tuna melt and the fuzz with octave up (can't remember it's name) are both pretty cool too. I actually have been looking for a version one cool cat transparent od. I think Dano is pretty good for the money.
+1 on the Tuna Melt. I bought mine when they first came out. Still works great.

I have the Danelectro Cool Cat Transparent Overdrive (Version 1) they sound great! I bought them new for $30.. I couldnt find them in the larger stores, and they were selling like pancakes when they came out.. I didnt like the version 2 very much.. but I was lucky I found the last stock of the version 1 in one small guitar store in the mall...
love the tones on these pedals.. They are housed in a metal casing too.. Unless you consider stompboxes as cockroaches when you step on it... I think they pretty well built.. they kind of heavy too, not as heavy as the Boss Pedals, but they are of substantial weight.. if I can find another version 1 again, I'd buy it.. they're just great pedals for the price...
