    Got this for a tenner off of Ebay - just arrived today.
    A lot of the reviews say it's solely a metal distortion, but don't you believe it. Thick slabs of greasy, fat, sleazy blues live within that little box, run through a clean valve amp. VERY pleasantly surprised!

    I bought one of those when they were new. I remember I didn’t care for it and sold it. I wish I could play it again today. My ears, amps and tastes have changed so much. And I’m better at tweaking the knobs now. Enjoy it!

    I have bought, sold, given away, thrown out a few pedals from every Dano pedal Series ( except the overpriced new ones)

    and for one reason or another, NONE of them made the cut, for use on gigs.

    Honestly with me, the deal breaker has not been sound, so much as ergonomics- hard to reach or tiny Controls, weight ( my Daddy-O Drive weighed as much as a brick), hard switches on the Cool Cat Series
    When I had to chose between a Dano, or another similar effect pedal for gigs, the Danos lost.
    BUT I've played THIS regularly since 1997 and it is awesome:
