    What is it? Danelectro DT-1 Dan-O-Matic from Dano “Original series”. Made in china around 1996 or 1997. This model was the very first of tuner pedals in the Dano pedal catalogue.

  • Danelectro DSD-1 Shift Daddy

    What is it? Danelectro DSD-1 Shift Daddy Echo Pitch Shifter from original series of rocker pedals. Made in china around late 90’s. I must admit that i was interested.

    What is it? Danelectro DD-1 Fab Tone Distortion from Dano original series. Made in china around 1997. Distortion from original series..

  • Danelectro DW-2 Trip L Wah

    What is it? Danelectro DW-2 Trip L Wah. Made in china between 1996 and 1999. This is one of three rocker pedals i’ve categorized as belonging to “Vintage Series”. Enclosure design. The biggest thing that separates Danelectro from the rest. Same thing goes to their guitars and amps too. I’m under the impression that the […]

  • Danelectro DJ21 Black Coffee

    What is it? Danelectro DJ21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion from Mini series. Made in china around mid-00’s. Finishing up with the Dano mini series with the last unit.
