i've only tried the fab metal and hated everything about it. it put me off of trying others from them for sure. i may have to rethink that
I've got a 90's Fab Tone too!! But, it's not on my current board...I have an old (90's?) Fabtone...
The Fabtone, on the other hand, is one of my all time favorite pedals. I will not be larting with it. It does metal great. Sure it has a very narrow tonal range and is way over the top with gain and treble, but it is brutal!
Same here! It rarely gets used anymore, but for the prices they go for it isn't worth it to sell. I have too many fond memories with it.I've got a 90's Fab Tone too!! But, it's not on my current board...
I learned many-a 90's alternative and rock with that pedal's influence...
I have those pedals and can attest to their sound. Awesome. The Uni-Vibe mod is so easy and cheap. I can't think of a better bang for the buck Uni-Vibe out there. None are that cheap. Mine sounds pretty damn good.There are a few of the plastic ones that actually are really cool and can be had for next to nothing - French Toast (Octave fuzz), Rocky Road (Leslie), and the Chicken Salad (Uni Vibe). Yes the housings are flimsy, as are the jacks, pots and switch, that's why they are cheap. But they sound really good. and there are guys out there that rehouse into sturdier enclosures with better switches, pots and jacks. The French Toast works better than most octave fuzzes I've owned. You can do mods the the Chicken Salad to make it more Uni Vibe-like: Mods for the Danelectro Chicken Salad Vibe Pedal for Univibe Tone
The Transparent Overdrive V.1 (CTO-1) was a Timmy clone, I guess Paul C had a conversation with the owner of Evets (Danelectro) and the design was changed for the V.2 version (CTO-2).
I've been playing with CC Vibe.The Chicken salad uni-vibe is really good even in its stock form. As a rehouse, it is as good as most of the U-Vibe pedals made!
I have the same pedal and the same "issues"I've been playing with CC Vibe.
Has a slight volume boost when engaged and it has a small delay.
(Both problems are easily fixed)
Other than that, excellent quality for money paid. Good bypass tone.
I have an external volume box, so for me the volume issue isn't really a problem.I have the same pedal and the same "issues"
Have you done any mods?
This is my go to tremolo pedal. I love it actually. What I like in particular is that it gives you a bit of a boost in your signal. It just sounds good.I know a professional Nashville player who uses the little plastic Danelectro tremolo pedal on his traveling pedal board.
