Danelectro Danecho Buffer Mod

This post is for you serious pedal geeks. A common mod for the Danecho is to use a better input buffer to prevent signal loading and retain the clarity. In an attempt to show visually what is actually happening I ran a white noise generator into a frequency analyzer. The image below shows the graphs of first what the white noise looks like, and second what it looks like when run through the Danecho while in bypass. You must click on the image below for it to enlarge then it cycles between two images every 5 seconds so be patient. You’ll notice a large drop off across the entire spectrum and the treble region (right side of the graph) is exceptionally weak with the Danecho in the signal path. Simply plugging the pedal into your signal chain with decrease your signal strength and clarity. The modification as well as other mods are offered on the “Modifications” page at fxdoctor.com.
