The classics digital delay

NiandraLaDes, 13.05.2014
You can say that the Boss DD-3 is a real legend in the digital delay scene. It's a classic and features up to 800 ms crystal clear delay.

We have 4 modes (50 ms, 200 ms, 800 ms and Hold) and three knobs to control the parameters (delay time, feedback and effect level). The first three modes limit your delay time to the called number (50, 200, 800) while the Hold mode features a pretty unique effect: play a note and press the switch constantly down to make some noise and repeat the played note/chord in an endless loop.

Like I said before, the other three modes limit your delay time to dial your favorite delay tones in with the delay time knob. It's really easy and you get nice spacey echoes and also some cool slapback sounds. The delay is build like a tank, too - Boss standard. It doesn't have tap tempo, so if you need that - check out the DD-7!

Some people might say the DD-3 sounds lifeless and cold but hey - this is not a boutique analog delay pedal. It gives you clear delay tones, easy as that. I use two of them in my current setup. One for a little solo delay and the other one for crazy fast repeating delays while using pick scrapes.

Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

a really good sounding simple pedal

AlipAssorg, 14.02.2018
I dont really use crazy and complex delays, i just like a slapback or a really subtle delay, so that i can have a more natural sound... kinda like you would use a reverb. So i leave it on all the time, and for that sort of effect it is the best sounding delay ever, i ever used!! i thought i wouldnt like the clear repeats of a digital delay, but they sound amazing for that sort of use!! To complete the package, boss pedals are built to last.
Not a single negative thing to say about this pedal, highly recommend it!!
