Danelectro DJ-15 Chicken Salad Vibrato
The DJ-15 Chicken Salad is a vibe pedal from the Danelectro “Food Series”. The pedal has two knobs,; one to control the intensity of the vibe and one to control the rate of the vibe. The pedal can be powered by 9 volt batter or external AC adapter and features an on/off red LED. The pedal is very small when compared to a Boss sized pedal. A mono input and a mono output are available.


This pedal is another pedal from the Dano Food series. Like all the other pedals from this series, it is a pedal that is made of plastic. This worried me at first glance but after owning a few pedals from this series I haven’t thought about it since. It is a very reliable pedal and I’ve never heard of any one crushing the shell of the pedal or footswitches breaking. People have lost the knobs, but that’s no big deal and can be remedied with a little glue. For a plastic pedal these little guys can take a beating. It’s a very straightforward layout and the switch is solid.


For under 30 US dollars I was really surprised with the sounds that were coming out of this thing. It does a very convincing Uni-Vibe tone and you can really nail those classic Hendrix and Trower tones. It’s an overall quiet pedal in the signal chain and the bypass works well, there is no bleeding on your dry signal. This thing can get nice and subtle, and far out and throb. This thing can really warble on the low end and middle frequencies. There is a bit of a mid boost when engaged, but I think that’s partially the nature of a lot of vibe pedals.


Overall this is a great vibe pedal for the player that doesn’t rely heavily on vibe tones. No more than I use this sound, it would have been a waste to have bought a more expensive pedal. The pedal operates quiet, is built sound, and doesn’t take up much space on my board. There is an added fun factor to this pedal if you open it up or drill a hole in the casing to reach the internal trim pot that can be adjusted to get even more sounds out of this pedal. Overall it’s a fun pedal and well worth the low price they ask for it.

Alchemy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The budget for Univibe"

Danelectro DJ-15 Chicken Salad Vibrato
Classified as vibrato, it sounds rather like a Leslie cab Univibe or at low cost to the extent that you do not feel that it is the frequency of the note varies. Everything is in the photo, one switch, two pots Speed ​​and Intensity for varying the speed of the effect and its ... intensity, bravo the Anglophile.
PCBs and Supercheap case, the small miracle of the thing is that it contains a bulb and photocells that can sublimate her with minor mods ESSENTIAL. (See sound quality)


Extremely simple, just makes sense.
A bad point for the switch plastoc, difficult to engage, and when you open the beast to see how it is actually below what is even worse.


The original sound is not exceptional, but by putting the guts looks like there is a good way to take advantage of this pedal.
- First remove the black cover of the bulb to cover it with aluminum foil or other type of reflective surface to increase the amount of light that percutera the photocells.
- Then play on the internal trimpot to find while playing the sweet spot of the pedal and there Ooooooo miracle, the sound is organic and bright, incommensurate with the factory adjustment of the pedal. It's really a second wind, the difference is obvious even for me who have a poor sensitivity audiophile.


Poor quality manufacturing to drive prices to the extreme, it would be worth dearer but better finished.

If you are looking for a drop vibrato, it's not a pedal for you.
If you want a Leslie effect / Univibe cheap, you can go there with your eyes closed condition was to put your hands dirty.
Basically it is a good base but the state is really limited both in terms of sound finish.
The case deserves a rehousing, if someday I have time ...

Danelectro DJ-15 Chicken Salad Vibrato
PDAL of vibato could not be more basic. an activation switch, two knob: intensity / speed. a diode to see the activation of the effect. everything is plastoc. ca seems to want to hold all the same. anyway I think that those kind of screw up their pedals, jumping like crazy on the switch with their new-rock bttn arm s'interressent this kind of gadget!


No manual, no need one quickly understands how it works (and where are its limits ...) how can a small pedals also eat it as much elec! You play two hours and walk more! (Luckily there is between 9V adapter) it's pretty abbrent. because it's true she was a mimi the pedals! we could fouttre three like that in the main (bigger picture. you see the well is even smaller!)! standard benefit as many space-saving compartment the plethora of other pedals out there. by tiny knob against implying a manipulation of tweezers if you want a bit of rglage prcis pedals but this is not essential ....


Ouahh which transition! I said then that there was no need for a very precise rglage PDAL for this and for good reason: it is far from being versatile! it is always the same type of sound. rglage the speed (speed of variable frequency drives) is sufficient: we go from very slow (a "wave" for two seconds) faster (about ten per second) no-hit with a deletion of any foix acute note for the "bottom of the wave." rglace the intensity (amplitude) it is not up to what you would expect. AC is set to max as soft vibrato and then when you max c not bother to listen we will hear that little variation in the pitch. another black spot, the effect the scheme will always modified to your guitar. when all are at least knob means even when the effect is l. ca is a sound with a kind of rsonnance in acute enough to hear brand without any vibrato ...:$ good, we can say that I said that the black spots but it's still nice that pedals ... it's just that there is not a true quality that stands out and that could be mentioned. It can be used for funky pot (with a slow speed and low depth) or if you push the depth, it makes me a lot on the riff hendrix.


I've had one or two months and I quickly made the turn! is not the pedals that will rvolutionner your phonebook for sure. but good for the price (60) can be fun "piss" to give a song with a cool vintage effect. on the other hand if you want a vibrato really useful and effective .... will go your way

Danelectro DJ-15 Chicken Salad Vibrato
Vibrato with a mono SETTING THE speed and intensity of dosage.
Small box that does not look but sturdy enough air even when
CHAC the battery is not IDAL: How long before the threads of the screw in the plastic renders me?


2 knobs: it is clear is effective
there is a manual, if so: it is the small one that shows you Leaflets rglage type pedals for each brand
is minimal, but it is enough


I use it on one of the two amps (I play in Stereo) and I have exactly the sound I rvais: trs is effective without being pat, but the it.
No effect "seasickness", but a "spikey" which recalls a little the sound of a leslie.
Rgl highest dose frankly it looks to psychdlisme 60's.


Used for several months, she DEFINITIONS part of pedal board.
This is a PDAL certainly brings that little something that makes him great but not intrusive.
Danelectro Congratulations!
