Boss DD-3 Digital Delay - The DD-3 is by far the most popular digital delay box in all of pedal history. I'd go so far as to say its' pristine delays have been repeated on more stages than any other echo device. This box is everything you'd expect from a hard-working digital delay unit. You'll get super clean repeats with no coloration, perfect decays, and enough delay times to create everything from short 'bathroom wall' slapbacks to long cascading patterns. The same 3 "easy-as-pie" parameters you'll find on most Boss delays is here: delay time, feedback, and level. There is also a fourth "mode" knob that adjusts the delay time range and also switches the unit into "hold" (infinite repeat) mode for sampling snippets of solos or riffs. For an all-around delay box you can't really go wrong with the DD-3 unless, of course, your expecting it to sound like an analog delay.

I really do like the delay sound this pedal provides, but its not worth the tone loss. Its easy to use, and gives a nice variety of delay sounds. It gave the nice round delay sound that I wanted on solos. Unfortunately, when my signal goes through the pedal, it sounds like I threw a blanket over my speaker. My tone sounds 10 x better when this is not in my signal path. I couldn't believe the difference from just taking this pedal out of the chain. It's the most noticeable tone loss I've ever heard from a pedal, and that's just really too bad because it otherwise did exactly what I wanted.

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      I have a Boss DD2 from the early 80's and thought maybe they improved on it. I could not be more wrong. For starters unlike the DD2, this one kills the tone in your chain. In addition the actual delay is extremely sterile and lifeless, I actually cringed when I A/B them. Find a DD2 if you can!

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      What a fantastic pedal! I bought this pedal too go along with my boss metal zone, and this all running through my fender deluxe tube amp, It is a great set up! I plan on collecting a few more boss pedals, to fully complete my rig. I use this pedal mostly on clean, and on solos, and it sounds amazing!

      GREAT PEDAL, JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!!

      By RUBEN LOPEZ

      from Charlotte NC

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      I was looking for a delay pedal to add to my bass rig, I tried a hole bunch of different models and brands both Analogs & digitals and I have to say the DD-3 is one best out there (IMO)IF what you're looking for is to stay/cut tru the mix this is def a good choice, analogs pedals are real good cause gives you that rich warm sound but they tend to get lost in a live situation, probably if you doing a intro by yourself or if you playing ambience music but for Hard rock or metal you might wanna go with this one I'm real happy with it

      Great sound for a battery-eater!

      By James Smith

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      This is a great little box for the sound. It's features are simple and it's built like a tank - like pretty much all BOSS gear. I've used one as my go-to delay for a very long time. The most important thing I'd like to point out for anyone buying this pedal, however, is how fast it uses battery power. It EATS them. If you're planning to run this via 9V battery, I hope you have stock in a battery company, because you're definitely going to need it. Used from a powered pedalboard or with a 9V adapter like the 10-Spot, it's definitely worth the cash.

      Good so Far.....

      By RICHARD DUNN

      from Saunderstown RI

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      This box works great,right out of the box too. It gives you everything you would expect in a digital delay, plus the "hold" option which at first seems kind of useless, but after messing around with it, it is very useful (its almost like a short looping tool cuz u can play over it). The settings provide many useful delays sounds from a bluesy echo, to U2 feedback, to slapback. If i could change anything I would allow the 3rd knob (the delay speed)to be more diverse, allow more delay times maybe. Overall it is well worth the price, and becuase it is a Boss pedal you know it wont't break.

      kick butt

      By tim frey

      from las cruces, nm

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      I bought this to give a bigger sound to my guitar/amp combo and it has fulfilled my needs. From the ultra short delay for a kick back sound to the long delays for a Gilmour sound it works like a charm. Couldn't be happier.

      The Best!

      By Jack Hill

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      Great pedal, I usually prefer analog, but this pedal just kills other delays. For the price it's the best.

      Awesome delay!

      By Will Cheatham

      from Virginia

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      From slapback to fairly long delays this pedal is awesome! Need tap tempo? Just get a "Kick Disk" and you'll be set. I love using this with solos. Very hapy with this!

      Love it, But i wish i spent a bit more

      By Tom

      from nj

      Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

      I love the pedal. Sounds great, works great, and is overall great. But from my time using the petal (a year)i wish i had spent a bit more and got the dd-5 or the dd-7. If all you need is a simple delay this is great. But if you are looking for more spend a bit more. You wont be let down with this or and dd boss pedal
