The Cash Cow, despite coming from Danelectro, is not a vintage-inspired, retro tone machine. It’s a high-gain, full-bodied and heavily saturated distortion that can squeal and shriek—just don’t expect it to moo.
The idea behind the Billionaire series pedal, which was announced a few months back, is to emulate the massive sound of a huge amp stack. So crunchy rhythms and searing leads are the Cash Cow’s specialties.
Four straightforward knobs—“Volume,” “Gain,” “Bass” and “Treble”—provide a little flexibility, but make no mistake. This is built for rock, metal and other beefy genres that’ll have you playing pinch harmonics and chugga-chugga riffs until the cows come home.
The Cash Cow lists for $79. For more info, check out billionairetone.com.
