New Mods – Danelectro The Guv’nor

Danelectro Daddy-O and Marshall The Guv'nor

Danelectro Daddy-O and Marshall The Guv'nor

One of the most popular pedals that people like to play with in my collection is my old school black box Marshall ‘The Guv’nor’. Every time someone has a play on it they want to buy it.

It’s not for sale, never will be.

When someone wants my Guv’nor pedal I put a modded Danelectro Daddy-O in front of their amp and give them the chance to play that. The Daddy-O circuit is essentially the same as The Guv’nor with a couple of exceptions. These exceptions make the Daddy-O quite different and rather awful sounding. However, by comparing the schematics of the two it is possible to convert the Daddy-O into a black box Guv’nor pedal.

It’s not a mod for the faint hearted as it involves cutting traces on the Daddy-O circuit and wiring components point to point but when it’s done you have pretty much got the black box Marshall Guv’nor nailed.

I’ve been gathering up a nice collection of Daddy-O pedals for a little while and will start listing them with the Guv’nor mod before Christmas.

Here’s a pic of some of the Daddy-O pedals I have stockpiled.
