Doherty's's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Stainless rules!"

Danelectro DJ-9 Surf & Turf Compressor
daneletro compressor, caracteristic as all products of the brand unbson vintage typed

Perfect for the garage rock 60'S, surf music rock'n'roll, rockabilly ... but also more modern stuff like "The Hives"


as always with daneletro configuration is very simple: two buttons,
three minutes by car Simone! Moreover, the turquoise blue and chrome v pedal recall the old American cars of the 50's
dispensable manual!


one little tablet has the same kind max intensity across the strings as if they were attached to them, for those who do not know the compressor imagined you scraped the strings with a cloth wrapped between the bridge and hand to yours its most extreme, refer to dick dale for clean sounds and the hives already saturated ca will give you an idea.
the sound is typed as much as look after if you want a versatile product'll see bosses and colleagues daneletro it's the vintage, but for those seeking sound of war until after the mid 70's the brand Ideally, it sounds cheap and c.


it makes a pay as I use it and it still works as well
a Bb for those measuring more than 45 in the savate, the pedal is quite small, you might tend to cover completely, the only downside that access to the battery with a Phillips screw plastic that is quite impractical and especially vulnerable

Danelectro DJ-9 Surf & Turf Compressor
This is an analog compressor
Small box that does not look but is tough.
Access to the battery is not great: how long before the threads of the screw plastic renders the soul?
Personally, it is in any case external power supply via input 9v.

This is my ninth Danelectro pedals and so I knew what to expect: it makes the job well for a great price reasonable.
2 years, none dropped me. on the other hand, it is the second that I have to be replaced because it did not work coming out of the box. So I think that there is no control in production line output. This can explain the price of these mini-mini-dano ....


2 knobs: Level, which functions as a volume and Sensitivy that regulates the amount of compression.
Simple and effective!


As with my other Dano, I found what I wanted: it is transparent when the effect is not Inrush and I 'get it easily a nice effect when I use it: it's warm, musical, natural ...
Warning: nothing to do with compression of heavy metal
Here, no effect beef but just enough to get a result that is both effective and unobtrusive
The Surf 'n'Turf can thicken the sound slightly, and the booster (if you want to use it as a booster).

This is especially a welcome effect on the Danelectro guitar that sounds very "dry" at the origin: we gain and sustain softness without altering the character of the lipsticks.


I tried other compression pedals guitar and I have another compressor (Aphex Systems 1404 punch factory) in my pedal set. To sound "vintage", the Surf'n'Turf the job done better than the Aphex is optimized for acoustic electric.
This pedal is perfect on 56Pro DC12 or if I can not really open the amp, I let the effect Inrush time. If I can open the amp, it serves as a booster for solos.
A € 28, what can we dream of more? And especially since the expensive compression pedals I tried were not very well to get the sound I like.
I'm a fan of those little pedals: what is next?

Malu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Danelectro DJ-9 Surf & Turf Compressor
This effect is apparently analogique.Il compressor has 2 knobs for volume and rgler compression ratio. This PDAL possde a input and output jack, ainsu between a power supply for the '9V, in addition to access batteries that are not very practical.
Its small size is a pleasure for pdalier.
There is also a small Detachable transparent cover that does not prevent access to the knobs with your fingers but avoid the problems can live for big feet.


Only two knobs so yes, use is simple.
The switch of the Danelectro is reassuring, I think it will take a long time.


It was not outrageously compression marks and does not blow like cs3 Boss, it's nice. It is clear in its discrete trs, but distortion and saves a lot in keeping notes. Drive with more of my HotRod, she rang my Ibanez Gio trsmlodieusement on the solos.
It has a great reserve of Dcibel and can serve as Boost.


I have been using for over a month, I had several opportunities to try the CS-3, but this one blows like an ox and from the trend too excessive if one does not take much time to settle. So the Danelectro is a rgale, with just two knobs, a better face, normment less breath. It just shows parrait if you want good compression can boost without leaving the excess to niveaude changing the attack mdiator (if you like this, take the boss.)
A new 47 euros, the report is pretty darn good qualitprix, when we see that the CS-3 is 70euros!
I do not regret at all what choix.Si misfortune befall him, I will buy the same without hsitation.
