The Danelectro Roebuck Distortion Pedal is a reimagining of a Japanese-made MOSFET distortion pedal from the 1990s. You can find the originals in the rigs of top Nashville session players, and for good reason — these pedals were one of the most versatile dirt boxes of their era.
Want transparent grit? No problem. British-tinged grind? Yep. Screaming tubelike overdrive? You got it. This multifaceted distortion/overdrive stompbox includes a wide-ranging 3-band EQ, along with a 3-way clipping mode switch.
Original MOSFET distortion pedals command über-high prices on the used market, and finding one in mint condition is a rarity. And when you take into account the Roebuck’s superior sonic flexibility, there’s no mistaking what a tremendous value it is.
If you’ve thought about getting a vintage MOSFET distortion for your pedalboard, consider Danelectro’s Roebuck — it’s everything its predecessor was and more.
