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've owned 2 of these units in as many months. The first one performed flawlessly for approx. 1 week when the level knob decided to quit working properly(i.e. not at all). I returned it and was promtly sent a replacement. The second unit performed horribly right out of the box with all sorts of extraneous noises, distortion etc. I tried guitar-->DD-3-->amp, and I also used the effects loop on the amp. This unit was obviously defective as well. I returned it for a refund and am now finished with the BossDD-3. I've purchased the tc electronics Nova Delay but haven't recieved it yet, probably tomorrow. I'll review it when I get it.

Comments about Boss DD-3 Digital Delay Pedal:

If you need your basic Delay, this is what you should get. It gives you the precise timing you need and gives a wide range of delay time (12ms-800ms). It has a brighter tone but can be warmed up by throwing it through the effects loop and pushing the mids on your amplifier. The biggest negative is tap tempo. I love tap tempo, but I know the DD3 has the basic delay's I needed for my budget, so I sacrificed the tap tempo for this pedal. Overall, I love it and it fills my sound. I've played on a few delay pedal's and this is my favorite DIGITAL delay. If you're looking for ANALOG, go with Carbon Copy by MXR. But if you want a simple delay that gets the job done, get this one.

          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!

                This is a great delay pedal. To help those who have some initial doubts, I have created videos that go straight to the point and demonstrate adjustments to familiar songs and creative ways to use this pedal and thereby enable them to learn how best to apply this effect.

                  This is a classic digital delay from Boss that gives clear and precise repeats if that is what you are looking for. I have an analog delay as well, and use that for certain things. But for some music, the clarity of a digital delay can't be beat.

                  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!

                      I bought this for use primarily in my studio and light stage use. It broke after just 3 months. It has a nice sound and effects, but needs to be more robust. Not worth the high price.
