This delay is the best out there. It sounds great alone or with distortion, flange, phase, whatever. The reverse delay is an added bonus. It can add some trippy effects in to your playing. You can also use the chorus delay setting as a chorus pedal if you turn the repeat and time to zero and level to max. Great pedal. .

This was my first delay pedal, and I honestly am glad that I got it. It was cheap, it was easy to become familiar with, and I learned some pretty cool stuff from using it. However, a couple years have passed. I've used some higher-end equipment. I now have the ability to compare and contrast, and when using this next to my other delays, this one just seems to fade in comparison.

My biggest gripe is that the delayed signal has a tendency to clip or distort when the incoming signal is deemed too high. This could be either if I strum hard or if I stack delays (which I do quite often for swells). The digital delay showed this the most, actually. The one thing that I hoped it would be able to do best was what showed its flaw the most. The digitally repeated signal just colored and distorted my original signal too much for what I wanted. While I recognize that this interaction may be interesting to a few, a digital delay is intended to recreate the signal flawlessly as opposed to an analog or tape delay.

Another issue that I came across is that this pedal may have too many features. Sure, the multiple delay times for the digital delay is nice. Yeah, the analog emulation is decent. The ping pong delay and the reverse delay are fun. But... a 4 second looper? The idea of having a looper and a delay in the same pedal in this price range sounds appealing, but you ultimately get what you pay for. Because of such a short amount of time to work with, it's almost unusable unless you have a short (and I mean short) riff that you want played over and over. Another thing that I noticed was that there's a tap tempo option with this pedal. I didn't know this until I had owned the thing for two years, and I only stumbled upon it when I accidentally held the pedal down longer than I wanted. Granted, this is a nice feature, but it's not very accessible. And in the end, I begin to wonder if there might be so many features that Digitech tried to pack into one pedal that it might have detracted from what the effect could have been if they instead focused on putting out just one really good pedal.

Maybe I'm whining about something that isn't worth complaining about. But three years down the road, I'm looking to get rid of this pedal. It was nice to start with, but looking back, I wish I had saved an extra couple money so I could get something a bit nicer.

    Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

    My last delay pedal (Line 6 DL4) has been nothing but problems--shorting out, not turning on, plus it's huge and cost far too much. The DigiDelay has almost all the same settings, is about a third the size, and sounds fantastic. The Tape and Mod Delay settings are particularly appealing. And you can get some CRAZY tones from messing around--look up "Dying Walrus" on YouTube :)

    Pretty sure this has been discontinued, because I got it for an absolute STEAL (40 new), but if you can find one similarly priced, snatch it up quick.

    Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

    I gave this pedal a shot because it was a great bargain. I'm not dissapointed by it's overall sound and performance. I use it mainly for a basic mild delay on a short, analog/tape setting. I find that it has a bit more presence or personality/sparkle to the more subdued DD7 on similar setting. The sound quality is quite good overall and it's easy to use. One star off for uneven finish on the case and each of the knobs having a variety of feel from loose to stiff. This is my first MIC Digitech pedal but my experience so far with Chinese built musical products has been very mixed.

      Excellent functionality for a digital delay. The options for reverse delay and up to 4 second loop recorder are fantastic. I have found it quite versatile and easily adjustable. Very happy with this.

        Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

        I remembered loving this when It first came out. I also borrowed it from a friend to compare with Boss' version.

        When a friend posted the SDOTD on this, I couldn't pass it up! And I didn't realize it had a reverse feature all this time, even better than I bargained for!

        Highly recommended!

        Wouldn't do a 3 hour job with one battery. You really need a power supply for this one our you'll go broke paying for batteries. Unit performed well and added NO noise.

        Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

        It's a great pedal. It's basically a stripped down version of the Hardwire DL-8. Limited memory with only the 4 Second loop time, but if you're not into that, it's a great delay. The single pedal Tap Tempo integration is great too. The best design I've seen on a single pedal delay.

        This delay pedal has a nice set of delays and is easy to use. The built-in 4-second looped is handy for building phrases. Plan to use an AC supply because a 9V battery won't last long.
