Danelectro has added to its new line of ‘vintage pedals’ with The Breakdown overdrive. With Positions 1 through 3 designed to have ‘leave on all the time’ potential and positions 4 through 6 for more soaring lead tones, it’s a delight to check out.
Danelectro makes some supremely awesome stuff, and now they have given us more with the new range of ‘Vintage Pedals’. ‘The Breakdown’, is highly affordable, incredibly well built, sounds amazing, feels amazing to play through and looks super cool. This pedal features classic Radio style control knobs, it has a very art deco feel. The pedal is aged slightly and looks like an old block of concrete, it looks super cool!
First of all, let’s work out what it does. Its function is somewhat like a Boost Pedal that can go into overdrive by itself. You can put your amp on a clean channel and set it on its highest setting for incredibly satisfying saturation in your solos, on lower settings you can get an awesome glassy break up/crunch sound that has a subtle compression to it. The pedal’s operation is super simple, you have the ‘Break Up’ knob which lets you select between 6 levels of Break Up, 1 is very subtle and 6 tears your head off (in a good way) Then there is the volume knob, which controls the overall level of this pedal. It isn’t set out like your standard overdrive, it is beautiful in its simplicity. It also features a SUPER satisfying switch that doesn’t click, it just smoothly turns on as if you’re never meant to turn it off.
