mooseherman's review"Cheap, and cheap-sounding, reverb"

Danelectro DJ-4 Corned Beef Reverb
This is a really cheap analog reverb pedal, made by Danelectro. Danelectro is famous (some may say notorious) for their discount pedals. They range from "this is a great deal" to "this is a junk pedal". This one is sadly more of the latter. It has two 1/4" jacks (input and output). There are no USB or MIDI connections and the pedal is not rackable.


The effects editing on this pedal is rather easy. There are two knobs, as well as a switch to turn the effect on and off. The knobs are for mix (which only controls the amount of the wet signal in the mix), and high cut cuts the high frequencies if they are too much. There really isn't a whole lot of control in this pedal. There is really very little in the way of control over this. My amp has spring reverb in it and the sound is far more flexible.


I've tried this pedal with a lot of different guitars and amps and I find that it is not really that good with any of them. I've used them with Fender guitars, Les Pauls, SGs, marshall amps, fender amps, hughes and kettner, and I find I don't really like it at all. The lack of control over the sound could be forgiven if the tone was any good, but it's really nothing special in the least. It can't help but sound very fake and unconvincing, and it detracts from the tone of the guitar rather than enhances it. I find that this is a sign of a pedal not doing its job, which makes it almost worthless.


I can think of only one situation where this would be a good purchase - if your good reverb pedal breaks, and you need a new one just to replace your other one while it's being fixed. Even then, I would get something that I could return later, even at a lesser price. This pedal's just too poorly made and weak sounding to be taken seriously. Danelectro strikes out again with this one.

Danelectro DJ-4 Corned Beef Reverb
The Danelectro Corned Beef Reverb is one of the cheapest ways you can get some reverb in your guitar rig. The pedal is standard in terms of it's characteristics, as it has 1/4" connections for your input and output. It will undoubtedly get a lot of looks because of it's extremely low price. It isn't rack mountable in any way as it is a stomp box.


Using the Danelectro Corned Beef Reverb is really simple. It's only got parameters for mix, which sets your reverb level, and for high cut. That's everything that there is to the pedal, which really isn't ideal as it really limits the amount of sounds that you can get with it. While this does make it easy to use, I don't think that it's a good trade off. I haven't seen the manual for this pedal, so I can't speak to it's make up.


The sound quality of the Danelectro Corned Beef Reverb really isn't very impressive to me. It sounds quite synthetic to my ear, as it just doesn't sound like a realistic room emulator. I've used the pedal with a Fender Jazzmaster and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, of course just to try it out, as there is a much better sounding spring reverb right inside of the amp. Maybe if there was more control over your sound you could manipulate it to get something a bit more useful, but you are kind of stuck with what you get here...


While the price of the Danelectro Corned Beef Reverb definitley will make it an attractive option, if it were me, I'd stray away from this pedal. This line of Danelectro pedals are hit and miss, and I do think that they missed the mark with this one. While it will give you a reverb sound, it isn't one that I would use for any application in my work. If you are looking for something dirt cheap to get you started with, I guess this will do an okay job for that, but even in that situation I'd encourage you to spend a few extra bucks on something that sounds better and has more controls to work with.

Danelectro DJ-4 Corned Beef Reverb
It is a feminine Danelectro pedals (AC Fully holds in his hand).
Rate a mix knob reverb, cut a button for the effect (to limit the effect in the treble. Ralite In a limited length of the reverb)
6.35 mm jack 1entrsortie course
9V battery or mains power supply


Trs simple like all Danelectro pedals


C the old reverb, trs not clean. In fact it gives a tremolo effect between and echo. Typical 50's. J'adooore!
Button trs rate mix is ​​effective, you can have the effect trs audible or just revreb discrte. The same button is cut in the high rev effective if you want deep bass and treble to keep natural.


I for 1 month
I love the sound.
Pedals a little fragile as plastic.
I use it in my complment fender reverb on the amp. 60 For there is a reverb with normment of personality (nothing to do with the reverbs numriques), IDAL choice to couple with no reverb amp (VOX AC30 for example).
I no hsiter Rasht, she brings warmth and ct 50's I wanted.

Danelectro DJ-4 Corned Beef Reverb
Reverb pedals, simple as hell. It's a mini pedals that to Doti max 10cm / 5
Between a jack, an output jack for an AC adapter 9v.
Two buttons: Mix and Cut
The thing that PCHE is the case in plastoc (who looks tough when even). I do not know how long it will take, but good for the price, we will not complain.


I play on a VOX AC-30 which does not have reverb, so I invested in the pedals, especially for the price (less than 30 euros from Thomann), and the quality of pedals DANELECTRO ( I have a DANECHO I am satifsfait trs)
Setup could not be more simple, turn knobs, it kicks the switch, and enjoy ...
Find the pedals with this is really easy


The quality ... it is clear that the reverb is not 300 or 400 euros, a feeling, but it's not really what I wanted either.
The sounds suit me and suit anyone looking for one of its 'roots' ... it is not a pure reverb, it's not a pure cho, let's say it's between the two ...
To judge Listen to the sounds reverb that Neil Young out of his guitar .. I find it very close to it with the pedals.
So its a great roots, my love, but will not please everyone.


I use it for a week. As I said, I'm pretty happy with my investment. For the price, was the fact carrment.
What I like most is the sound of Neil Young, although roots .. on an AC30, a ring. What I like least, bah the plastic case, although for the moment, it is still l.
I have not really tried other pedals before, I had a lot of amp with reverb. has the reverb sounds better than the 8080 Marshall (normal. ...), and can be a chouilla below that had my H & K Tube 50.
Report quality unbeatable price (30 euros the pedals, even when the fact was)
I referrer that choice without hsitation, and as Logan, I recommend that anyone who pedals have an amp with no reverb.
