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.
