Review by Your Pet Poodle for Danelectro DJ-14C Fish & Chips 7 Band EQ Mini Effects Pedal
For a long while I resisted the notion of pedals or effects of any kind. “The amp should and guitar should do it all,” was my line in the sand. And, truth be told, I DON’T think effects should carry the lion’s share of the ‘sound’ burden.

That said, there are things a lot of stock rigs aren’t capable of doing. Many (most) amps don’t have tremolo, so if ya want it, it’s stomp box time. Many amps suffer from poor ‘verb or no verb, especially the smaller, coveted Fender variety. So… another box is necessary. And so forth.

A 7 band eq? How does that fit into the configuration? Isn’t that tone-queer territory, where one pores over sonic minutia forvever and never really gets things dialed in? And besides, the concept is so seventies. I didn’t get it, or maybe didn’t want to.

I purchased the Fish and Chips largely out of curiousity, born out of rave reviews about it. Let’s face it: an eq doesn’t quite produce the ‘tingle’ that a cool ‘verb box does. But for the price, it was worth a try. Boy, was I in for a pleasant surprise.

This little box can breathe new life into ANY rig. I own (among other things) a Silvertone 1484 and a Fender Pro Jr. Both possess a certain old school charm, but as such, are limited in their usefulness. With the F & C in the front of the chain, the sonic latitude of these amps is increased at least 10 fold. I never knew my various axes could yield such appealing, PRO sounds. And with the level on the F & C at just about half mast, the gain is boosted significantly and quietly. I can gig anywhere, in any musical situation with the little Pro Jr. now, and that’s good news for an aging jobber.

Ya don’t to be a sound engineer to get busy with this thing. I would guess that within 10 minutes, even random tweaking will get a rig just about where it needs to be. Again, if the goal is to get more, a lot more, sound potential from your stock rig, this is one very inexpensive way of doing it. High marks for Dano on this one.

A must for any active guitarist who want to tweak tone. It produces no extra noise. For an 8 band eq with a 9th slider for volume, $30 is a huge bargain. I’ve seen no complaints about this pedal. I’ve had it for years!!

Review by Nessander for Danelectro DJ-14C Fish & Chips 7 Band EQ Mini Effects Pedal
These Danelectro pedals are great quality for the money. I use this pedal behind my dirt pedals for added flexibility and bringing out some more “brilliance” to the tone. The case is plastic, not very attractive, and perhaps not very sturdy. Also the button to push down for the effect leaves a bit to be desired — it doesn’t feel very solid. But I intend to use this more for recording than live use, so I’m not worried about that. Anyway, there aren’t many EQ’s on the market, and for the price, it can’t be beat. I would recommend it.

I got this pedal to try to brighten up the tone of a fender blues junior. It sounded exactly how I hoped it would… until it stopped working after about 30 minutes of use.

The pedal provided such a significant improvement that I can’t bring myself to fire up the amp again until I get the replacement (which is being send via 2nd day air by Amazon free of charge).

The real question is, do you want this pedal or the Boss GE7, which presumably provides more reliability for 3x the price. As this is just a hobby for me, I don’t regret the cheaper option. Given Amazon’s fair return policy, I’m bound to get one that works eventually.

Review by T. Fucik for Danelectro DJ-14C Fish & Chips 7 Band EQ Mini Effects Pedal
This is essential identical to the Boss GE-7, but in a smaller, plastic enclosure. It’s not the sturdiest pedal, but it does sound quite good. It is very transparent sounding with very little noise. It has the same frequency bands as the Boss version and works like a champ. It has PCB mounted plastic jacks, so if you’re rough on gear, don’t expect it to hold up to the rigors of the road. Mine sits mounted in the middle of my pedalboard and stays on most all of the time for a mild mid scoop, so it doesn’t see much abuse. For the money it’s tough to beat these little Dano Mini effects. Not “boutique” quality, but good enough for rock n’ roll.
