This pedal has so many great delays it it. You can get any type of delay you want out of it. I would recommend buying a tap tempo for it, I just bought an M-Audio keyboard sustain pedal, and it works great for it. You can also use the right pedal for tap, but it toggles in between memory and tap, so its best to not have to hold the pedal down for 2 seconds to switch it. That is probably the worst part about the pedal, is the holding down part. A sustain pedal fixes that. As for the looping SOS mode, it works well, but I tried this and a Line 6 DL4, and the DL4 was a lot easier to use for looping, and had a few extra looping features, like the option to turn of your loop and save it to play later in the song. The delay features were very inferior to the Giga Delay. So here's my advice: If you're mainly looking for a delay pedal, buy this. If you're mainly looking for a looping pedal, buy the Line 6.

I have used my friends' DD20 quite frequently over the past 2 years or so. I love it and love the delays that it gives you, but it is not very user-friendly when it comes to playing with it live on stage. It's a pain switching from one preset to a different one mid-song, which I tend to do a lot. This pedal was not for me. After playing with this and using a DL4 for a couple of years I decided neither of those were for me. If you want a great pedal I recommend the Eventide Timefactor.

Delay Delight

By Nathan Green

from Nashville Tennessee

This is the second DD-20 I have owned, and I have loved it both times. The first time, I used it as a rhythm guitarist in a band and it held up beautifully. This delay works great with acoustic and electric guitars and has enough features to keep you interested for years of fun!

Won't Need Another Kind For A Long Time

By Garrett Thomas

from Rock Hill, SC

Great delay pedal! I chose this over the Line 6 DL-4 because I like how it works compared to the DL-4. Fantastic delay sounds, I primarily use the Dual mode, with some good old fashioned digital delay and tape delay thrown in for good measure. Switching between Tap Tempo and Memory can get a little confusing, just pay attention and you'll be fine. I'll probably get an expression pedal soon and eliminate that aspect all together. All in all, great pedal.

It's fun...

By DURIN THORNTON

from Houston, TX

It?s complicated to use and I can?t tell the difference between several of the delays, but it?s still fun to play with. I can also imaging that in a gigging environment it would be a pain to use, but as I sit on the floor in front of it experimenting with all my sounds. It?s not that big a hassle for me. All though for ease of use and gig effectiveness

Props to Boss

By Levi

from Georgetown, Ky

This is a cool delay pedal that should be on any person's rig who requires delay. I'll start with the small amount of bad. It is a larger pedal, so it takes about the space of 2 1/2 regular boss pedals, but the sacrifice it worth it. I am not sure, but I do not believe it is true bypass if that is an issue for you. It also takes 6 AA batteries to power it. Now for the awesomeness of the pedal. It has 40 seconds of looping time. It is great for the little I IV V chord songs that are repetitive. It has 11 delay types that are pretty cool. I was able to figure out everything pretty quick, and I have never owned a delay. It is built like a tank. The knobs feel solid and the pedals themselves feel sturdy. I should also mention that it doesn't change the pitch when you move the buttons while sustaining a note. The many different kinds of delay are fun to mess around with. Twist makes a note sound like an engine. The warp does some sort of a volume swell thingy that is hard to describe. Tape, analog, and standard delays are "copies" of other Boss delays that were once sold. Dual and Pan modes are kinda interesting. Dual allow you to use "two" delays at once. It allows you to set "one delay" to 300 milliseconds and the "other delay" to 500 milliseconds. Smooth kinda sound like it would be used in funk music. It is like a standard delay with some slight oomf. Modulate is pretty cool sounding, especially for country (when played with compression) or rock (when played with distortion). Reverse is a cool mode because it sound like something "techno" when you play it with the right notes. Overall, it is one cool pedal. I highly recommend it to anyone that has the cash to buy it and really likes delay.

Excellent pedal

By Zac L.

from California

This pedal will give you almost every delay capability you will ever need. It is digital so no analog for you tone freaks, but other than that there are absolutely no complaints. you can customize your delay to anything you'd like. There's no way you'll be disappointed.

GREAT delay pedal, decent looping pedal.

By Sam

from Buffalo, MN

This pedal has so many great delays it it. You can get any type of delay you want out of it. I would recommend buying a tap tempo for it, I just bought an M-Audio keyboard sustain pedal, and it works great for it. You can also use the right pedal for tap, but it toggles in between memory and tap, so its best to not have to hold the pedal down for 2 seconds to switch it. That is probably the worst part about the pedal, is the holding down part. A sustain pedal fixes that.

The delay features were very inferior to the Giga Delay. So here's my advice: If you're mainly looking for a delay pedal, buy this. If you're mainly looking for a looping pedal, buy the Line 6.

For Those Who Need A Fuller Sound

By Clayton

from Traverse City, Mi

This delay has done wonders for filling out my sound. I play guitar in a rock band, and adding this pedal to my arsenal is more than worth the expensive price tag. If you can afford it, get it! Also, just as with any guitar pedal, allow yourself some serious time to learn how to use this thing. The more you play with it and figure it out, the more you'll learn to really aprechiate it. Unlike other delay pedals, this adds a richness and quality that you'll never belive you ever lived without. My only complaint is that sometimes the delay can be too loud, and I want a faint "in the backround" delay, but I'm sure there's a way to twaek it. Like I said, do your homework once you buy this, and you won't be sorry! Awesome pedal.

Best Delay Pedal that Programs

By Michael

from Birmingham, Alabama

Okay guys, the dd-20 is hands down the best programable delay. The line-6 can store 3 settings, while the dd-20 can do 5 presets. Here's the best part for my needs, I play 5 song sets at church and normally would have to tap tempo in each beat, BUT with the DD-20, it allows you to set the delay with the knob to the bpm(beats per minute) and store each one. Duh, this means it gives you a perfect tap tempo every time! It has tap tempo, but i dont even need it and it is much warmer sounding than the dl4, though it doesn't have as many sounds. I am extremely picky about tone and this is the best digital delay out there for what I do. I hope this helps!

Great delay

By Jgolden

from Harrisburg

this pedal is amazing with many possibilities from a standard delay to twist,warp and reverse also has a Sound on Sound feature to record and overdub short riffs around 23 seconds of recording time i believe it also features a memory function for saving delay settings you can save up to 4 and for those songs with a delay u can't figure out u can use the tap tempo feature to set the delay time also
