MGR/Anonymous's review"Danelectro Cool Cat"

Danelectro DC-1 Cool Cat Chorus
I was looking for a chorus pedal to add to my effects. I started by reading as many
reviews about chorus pedals as I could. Then I watched E-Bay for the pedals
I was interested in. The Cool Cat has an excellent review history and the price
on E-Bay was always pretty good. I picked mine up for <$40.

The Cool Cat is built like a tank. It is a very heavy construction.

The unit is very simple to operate. You can get some really interesting chorus
sounds out of the unit with a twist of its two dials - speed & chill.

As this was a used unit and I wanted the manual that came with it, I contacted
Danelectro to get a manual. They sent me one for free.

This is more of a warning. The unit requires two 9-volt batteries to operate. I would
highly recommend getting Danelectro's AC adaptor (wall wart) for this unit. Make
sure to get the 18 volt unit.

Excellent construction. Solid heavy gauge steel. Excellent quality.

If you can find one used for ~$40 get it!

Danelectro DC-1 Cool Cat Chorus
Analog Chorus with chipsets bbd circuit (mn3007), for a quite soft sound overall. all in a very wide very heavy box components do not walk on the inside.
conection: 1 in two out jack socket supply +
there are 2 versions of coolcat a version powered 18 volt and a 9 volt (most recent)


Classic standard rate settings depth max speed seems more matured than boss (I had a boss ce3 in time, but I can be the memory that falters, so to check)


The beautiful modulation, as comfortable with a guitar with an electric piano. good concurente the ce2 I think I found him not default.
a beautiful and good chorus.


Before you spend hundreds of dollars in vintage, listen here.
Having sold my ce3 japan (youthful indiscretion;-)), I found this coolcat analog sound I wanted to find away of digital multi-effects

Danelectro DC-1 Cool Cat Chorus
So I let that little notice .. has now QLQ years that I have ...

It's an Analog Stereo Chorus Leslie trends format Pedler (yeah the picture is the top I know!)
What simple

Just two knob on the surface: Chill and corresponding Speed ​​Rate and Depth on other pedals.
A button to initiate or trigger the effect.

on the other hand in 18V transformer! And yeah there are two 18V batteries in it so


Level simplicity it is served!

Not making you head is the sound 2 seconds.
The manual is just indicate the possibility of Pedler level wiring and quick explanation on the function of two knobs


A Chorus of his trs good quality .. Vintage trs on the other hand and in addition has a face! it was not beautiful?
Use with a Rectifier head Mesa / Boogie, Les Paul, the amp dito
I personally branch last in the pedal just before the amp so after Wah phase etc ... preamp and before then!

I prefer adjustable Speed ​​is 70% and 60% Chill. Chorus in its own clear and sometimes a little vintage Metallica you lower the quantity of Speed ​​(lol) and Satur is a limit Rotovibe (As my idol COMMON GROUND Zakk Wylde! It's a bit that I had to 'I took this pedal for that matter). The sound of the pedal is the image of the carcass that dress: vintage round and thick! Should be specified as hot!


5 years of use .. no ride .. not a problem! the Panard!

The more that is better is that it's simple .. trs certec'est a default for certain of not being able paramettrer more .. but .. scne tebaisse you settle for a hard 2sec!

Tla it slightly compared to Boss, but it's really different, the choice was made ear .. Price level since the time I have paid 500 francs without the transformer is reasonable ... well ...

With the experience I have with this pedal now .. yeah I do it again the same choice ...

Danelectro DC-1 Cool Cat Chorus
This is an analog chorus with two pots, one input and output deus. It works in 18V and it is a hassle to find a transformer.
Made in China
The pedal is wonderful in the spirit of the sound it makes: vintage.
The quality of the connection is really bad: Plastic entries are often parasites.


With two buttons one does not take long to find one that suits her.


The range of sound is relatively small but suits me perfectly.
This is very typical vintage.
Of arpeggios is a treat.
At this price (about 50th hand) I find nothing better.


Highly recommended as a pedal full range Danelectro elsewhere.
For a very reasonable price was under the foot pedal with a very good sound.
Shame about the build quality ...
With the experience I would do this choice.
