DISTORTION

Description

Danelectro DD-1 Fab Tone Distortion from Dano original series. Made in china around 1997. Distortion from original series.. Since all the others have certain vintage vibe to their tones, i had no expectations one way or another. On the other hand, i’ve had this unit for years now and it’s not that easy to write about it as this was my first encounter. There have been rumours about the design being a slight derivative of Boss MT-2 Metal Zone. Sure. Both are guitar effects. There is a floater schematic available. Huge image, and there are some similar parts in there. But i would not call this a Metal Zone. Nor even a derivative for that matter.
