Then use the Delay Time control to dial-in on the exact delay time you want. Connect a footswitch, like the FS-5U, to the TEMPO jack and select Quarter, Dotted Eighth, Eight or Quarter Note Triplet. Then tap the footswitch four times in real-time to instantly get a delay time that precisely matches the tempo you’re playing. In Hold mode, press the pedal to record a passage as long as 2,000ms. Release it to stop recording and start automatic playback. An LED indicator flashes while the DD5 is playing back. The delay can also be inserted into an effects loop. To enhance solos, you can produce delay effects that make maximum use of the stereo field. Trademarks and Copyrights are property of their respective owners. Login Registration is disabled.

I've played plenty of gigs where I needed that sound, and was able to deliver thanks to my DD-5 and a tap tempo switch (with an analog delay in series). My only real gripe with this pedal is that the reverse feature, which is a great idea, mixes the current note with the reverse option. I would've like to have just the wet reverse sound, but it's a minor gripe for what is otherwise a good pedal. Very clear, bright, and really stands out during solos, it reminisces me a typical 80s lead tone! I mainly used it for a slapback, but would occasionally use other settings. This Digital Delay is one of the most user friendly pedals I own. The clarity and response is fantastic. With the Hold mode you can sample a passage simply by pressing and releasing the pedal.

Guitar Operator 5.0 out of 5 stars I like this one the best.especially for the price range. Boss DD-7 beats the pants off the Line 6 Echo Park delay. The Boss DD-7 was perfectly clean and did not alter the tone. Easy to set and adjust while playing live and on-the-fly. Matches perfectly with other Boss pedals. It also beats the other Boss Delay pedals available for quality, sound and features. Many options, settings and configuration choices makes this pedal versatile. I bought this for quality, ease of use and straightforward operation while playing live.My favorite is the analogue option which emulates the DD-3 I believe it is. Thus I have an RC-3 looper which is great too. There is a lot of room for adjusting it to get exactly what you want out of it.I still haven't learned how to use the reverse delay, and it seems to be slightly less user-friendly than the one on the BOSS ME-50, so that's a possible drawback. If you have very advanced delay sounds in your set, it's not easy to fiddle with it on stage, but I've gotten along fine switching back and forth between two or three settings with no issue. The fact that you can dial in so many different recognizable sounds makes this purchase worth more than any other DD pedals.Only gave it 3 stars because there are many pedals out there that sound just as good with many more features at this price point. Sounds great, as most boss pedals do. Just not very versatile for the money.Modulation option with short delay time can basically act as a chorus pedal. Vintage sound option is also very good. No noise to speak of.It definitely is one of the best if not the best delay pedal out there. It does everything you can think of when it comes to delay and even has a modulate mode which you can create a chorus sound from.

The tap tempo is the most convenient for me and is the thing I use most with this pedal. I have come to realize that I probably will never use this pedal to its full potential. But it is a great pedal and I recommend it to anyone who wants to use all of the many features. If you're like me and just want a good quality delay pedal with a tap tempo feature, I would get something a little less complicated and a little cheaper.It probably has more features and different combinations of settings than I'll ever use, but what the hell. It also has a pretty convincing analog mode.Better than my Boss GT 100. Well packaged and protected, in its original box. The pedal is really high quality and sound just great. Very versatile. I recommend read the manual and use the settings of that appears there.A tad pricy of you're on a budget, but really good. I've been using the loop function a boat load, been layering riffs on top of eachother to make a big sounding metal riff. And I really like the modulation effect, if you turn the delay time right down it makes a decent chorus effect, I've been using this a little more than the regular delay to get a more ambient sound. I'd defy recommend this pedal if you have the money.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again It takes some getting used-to as the selector knob is a bit fiddly. Works with both on my electric and acoustic guitars. Provides some real depth to the sound and as it has a stereo output can be connected by two cables to a stereo amp or two separate amps. I have briefly experimented with both options and got reasonable results so far. I need more time to experiment with the settings to see how well this aspect works. A good buy. I have it linked to a GE-7 pedal.Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

Among them are everyday guitar staples like overdrive, distortion, and reverb, as well as unique effects like Slow Gear and Slicer, just to name a few. And, of course, BOSS pioneered the famous chorus pedal in 1976, a now-standard effect that’s regularly used by players in every style of music. To date, 20 different models have provided delay and echo effects in one form or another. Sit back and settle in as we run down the entire history of BOSS delay pedals through the decades, from 1978 to present. BOSS and Roland (its parent company) have been innovating with delay effects since their earliest days. On the Roland side, the RE-201 Space Echo—first introduced in 1974—is widely regarded as the premier tape-based delay unit ever made.

Starting in 1983, rack units like the SDE-3000 Digital Delay were at the forefront in music tech, and they became vital components in guitar effects systems used by the biggest names in music. To achieve these goals, BOSS has continually pushed the envelope with both analog and digital technologies, setting many trends that continue to influence the industry to this day. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started with the rundown! The DM-1 Delay Machine—the very first BOSS delay unit—provided a more affordable and compact alternative. While limited in frequency response and versatility in comparison to a Space Echo, the analog DM-1 had a very nice sound and provided delay times up to 500 milliseconds. Unlike the subsequent BBD-based models in the DM series, the DM-1’s circuit used a charge-coupled device (CCD), an electronic component that went on to be widely used in digital cameras. Since the DM-1 was produced for less than two years, it’s a rare bird on the used market, and commands some very high prices if you can find one. For the DM-2, BOSS employed a bucket-brigade device (BBD), as opposed to the CDD used in the DM-1. One of the ways they did this was to limit the frequency response of the effect sound. This compromise contributed to the DM-2’s characteristic warm, enveloping tone, which blends so well with a guitar or any other input signal. The world’s first digital delay in stompbox form (and also the first digital pedal of any type from BOSS), the DD-2 put the much higher audio fidelity and increased delay range of studio rack processors within easy reach of every musician. Roland’s flagship digital delay at the time was the SDE-3000, a rack unit regularly used in recording studios. Thanks to its rich, guitar-friendly sound, it also found a home in large-scale rack rigs used by serious pro players. However, the SDE-3000’s cost and form factor was beyond the means of many working musicians and casual players at the time.

With that, the next formidable steps were to fit the rest of the electronics in as well, and to power it all with a 9-volt battery! With its max delay time of 800 milliseconds and clear-yet-warm tone, the pedal was an instant smash and a must-have item. The DD-2 set the standard for the flurry of digital delay stomps that would come after from BOSS and other manufacturers, and every one of them owes its heritage to this revolutionary pedal. Its replacement, the next-generation (but still analog) DM-3, was slightly more affordable. Evolving from the DM-2, it included some design tweaks that cleaned up the delay repeats for a clearer sound with less noise, an ever-present engineering challenge when trying to get the best performance out of analog BBD circuits. The DM-3 also featured a Direct Out jack for sending dry and effect signals to two separate amps, as well as some unique knobs not seen on any other BOSS pedals before or since. It’s perhaps a touch less gritty and more refined in the delay repeats, but that can be a good thing in many applications. It was the last all-analog delay pedal in the BOSS lineup for 26 years, until the introduction of the Waza Craft DM-2W in 2014. While samplers had started to hit the scene a bit earlier, they were typically high-cost devices used mainly in studios. True to the BOSS philosophy, they brought this evolving technology within reach of all musicians with the DSD-2. There’s also a Trigger input for triggering the sample from a drum pad or other external source. While the sampling capabilities were rather limited by today’s standards, the DSD-2—and later DSD-3—can be viewed as early descendants of BOSS’ immensely popular Loop Station products that would come many years later. This allowed manufacturers to bring less expensive products to the marketplace, and the DD-2 was a direct beneficiary of this trend. However, instead of dropping the price on the DD-2, BOSS decided to replace it with the new, lower-cost DD-3 instead.

This longevity serves as an enduring testament to the skill and expertise of the BOSS engineering and development teams in getting it just right the first time out. Other than the model names on the cases, the DSD-2 and DSD-3 are essentially the same pedals. Why am I including it here. Because delay functionality is offered as one of its many sound modes. When used in stereo, the RV-2’s Delay mode functions as a panning or “ping-pong” delay, where the repeats alternate between the left and right outputs. However, most musicians think of delay and reverb as individual effects types—and use them in somewhat different ways—so we’re treating them as separate effects categories in this rundown.) Originally designed for the RRV-10 Digital Reverb in the MICRO RACK series, this first-generation chip offered an unprecedented amount of processing power in a compact pedal. It also pulled a lot of current, so the RV-2 could only run on the supplied AC power adapter (no batteries). It can be set up to one octave up or down, or to any interval in-between with Manual mode. A Tuner out jack allows you to connect to an external tuner (like the era’s BOSS TU-12 ) and accurately fine-tune the pitch interval as you twist the Manual knob and play. Yes, that’s a little inconvenient by today’s push-button standards, but it was bleeding-edge at the time. In one of its Delay modes, the PS-2 offered up to two full seconds of time, another BOSS delay pedal first. It also cost less, and could run on a 9-volt battery. Along with improved reverberation, the delay capabilities were greatly expanded in the RV-3 as well (so much so that “Delay” was added to the product name). Straight delay with up to two seconds is available, as well as modes that combine the delay effect with the pedal’s four different reverb types. As you can imagine, all these cool capabilities resulted in one wildly popular pedal!

While the delay functionality is the same as the PS-2, the pitch-shifting abilities were really expanded. Pitch can be shifted up or down over two full octaves, and a Detune mode allows you to create chorus-like tones. In addition, each of these functions can be used in dual modes, where you can create two independent pitch shifts at once. Each can also be sent to separate outputs when the pedal is used in stereo. That’s more than double the maximum 800 milliseconds provided by the DD-3, the only dedicated digital delay pedal in the lineup at the time of our current stop. BOSS addressed this performance gap with the DD-5, and added a lot of high-end features along with it. Tempo-sync delays are also available, with the ability to tap in the time via an external footswitch.First off, the max delay was increased to 5.2 seconds (when using Long Delay mode), and the tap tempo functionality could now be accomplished with the onboard pedal switch. The Hold function was also enhanced, with 5.2 seconds of recording time and sound-on-sound overdubbing.This approach was widely embraced by creative musicians everywhere, and the series soon began to expand. Eleven sound modes provide a variety of delay flavors, including the standard DD-3 style delay, warm BBD analog and tape emulations (including dual-head Space Echo effects), reverse, SOS (sound-on-sound), and more. Warp mode from the DD-6 is also included, as well as new Smooth and Twist modes for additional unique sounds. The two onboard pedal switches make tap tempo, memory select, and other delay operations easier, and an external switch can be plugged in for additional control. Though there were a number of different models through the years, the RE-201 Space Echo was both the enduring benchmark and most popular. With three separate playback heads, built-in spring reverb, and distinctive 12-position Mode Selector, the RE-201 was easy to use and capable of a wide range of creative, organic echo effects.

As such, it found a home in many different music applications, from recording sessions to arena performances. The Space Echo was also an important component in the reggae-driven dub sounds created by early electronic music artists. All of the original’s controls are completely replicated in the RE-20, and adjusting them in real time produces identical behaviors as well. For example, tweaking the Repeat Rate not only adjusts the delay time, but also mimics the unique pitch-shifting behavior that occurs in the RE-201 as its physical motors gradually slow down or speed up the tape loop. Stereo operation is supported, and the delay time can be tapped in with the right pedal or an external footswitch. A Twist function is also available, which adjusts multiple parameters with a press of a pedal; this makes it easy for guitarists to replicate the dub-style runaway echo effects originally popularized by twisting the RE-201’s panel knobs. (Of course, similar effects are also possible by manually turning the RE-20’s knobs.) And, thanks to the RE-20’s digital design, there’s no need for periodic tape replacement and other maintenance hassles! Additionally, Hold mode now provides up to 40 seconds of sound-on-sound recording, allowing the DD-7 to function quite capably for looping tasks. The pedal also includes Analog and Modulate modes borrowed from the DD-20. All in all, the DD-7 delivers an amazing amount of delay versatility in one small pedal. Embodying the company’s spirit of innovation through the years, the TE-2 delivers a truly unique ambience effect never heard before in any other single pedal, from BOSS or anyone else. The resulting tone has elements of delay, reverb, filtering, and pitch modulation, and you can twist the pedal’s knobs to dial up all sorts of sounds, from subtle reverberation to long, swirling ambient washes.

Pressing and holding the pedal switch engages the cool Freeze function, which holds the effect sound to provide an ambient bed for playing over the top. While both pedals are sought after, it’s the DM-2 that’s the most highly regarded, thanks to its warm, grungy delay tone that oozes retro musicality. In Standard mode, the DM-2W is a complete replica of the DM-2, delivering the same rich, all-analog tone that made the original such a classic. But BOSS wanted to go beyond a simple reissue, so they added a Custom mode that more than doubles the available delay time to 800 milliseconds, while slightly cleaning up the grittiness for more definition and clarity. The pedal also has the ability to send dry and effect sounds to two different amps, a feature grabbed from the DM-3. Finally, there’s a jack for controlling the delay time with an expression pedal, a handy modern feature not available in either the DM-2 or DM-3. It updates the mighty RV-5, which has reigned as the industry standard for over 12 years. While its predecessor sounds exceptional, the RV-6 kicks things up to new heights, delivering rich, expansive tones equal to or exceeding boutique pedals and studio rack units costing much more. However, the next-generation RV-5 focused on reverb only. As you tweak the Time and Tone knobs, the reverb and delay characteristics are adjusted in multiple ways under the hood, providing ideal combo tones at every setting. And with its incredible price-to-performance ratio, it’s by far the best value as well. If you’ve been looking for the delay pedal of your dreams, BOSS has really delivered with the DD-500! It can recreate the sounds of every pedal throughout the history of the BOSS delay lineup, plus famous units like the Roland SDE-3000 and Space Echo. In addition, it has a ton of fresh, modern effects that combine delays with filtering, modulation, pitch shifting, and more. And that’s just the start.

You can read all about the features the amazing DD-500 has on tap in this previous post. Throughout this historic review, a common thread is certainly clear: BOSS is always innovating, striving to create top-quality products that support the needs of musicians of all levels, from amateur players to high-end pros ripping it up nightly for audiences in the thousands. They’ve certainly achieved that goal, as BOSS delay pedals continue to be embraced by players everywhere, inspiring them to take their music to new levels of creativity, originality, and expression. Although we did review a version of this pedal before, it had been modded by JHS, so we’re gonna take a look at the stock pedal and see what it has to offer as it comes stock. The DD-5 is jam-packed with delay options, most notably the specific Delay modes. These range in overall delay time from 1ms to 2000ms (2 full seconds!), which is a pretty nice range, and useable for most of us. Sure, there are other delays with longer times, but 2 seconds is a pretty long time, and can be just the right amount in many, many situations, especially in a live setting. Mode 5 is the Hold function, which can be useful sometimes, but let’s face it: the DD-5 is a delay pedal, and there are better, more intuitive looper pedals available on the market. Not my favorite feature here, but that’s about my only complaint. The ability to do Reverse is fun, for sure, which is another reason I dig the DD-5. Hours of wacked-out noises can come from the reverse setting, as many of you know, and it’s no different here. The last dial features 4 different tap tempo selections (quarter, dotted eighth, eighth and quarter note triplet) for use with an external tap tempo switch (like the FS-5U). An instant classi pedal, and one that has remained on many boards around the world since its release, the DD-5 is a pretty straightforward delay, with a couple of cool options and a ton of useable sounds.

As with all Boss pedals, you could throw it off the Space Needle or Sears Tower, take the elevator down, pick it up and go play a gig with it (most likely), so you definitely don’t have to worry about it breaking down in the middle of a gig.

In the time since I started playing professionally, I have bought-tested-sold nearly every delay on the market (all except a couple very high end ones like the Echoczar, Flight Time and Echosex; I've never owned a tube tape echo. Oddly enough, the ONLY affordable delay I can think of that I've never owned is a Carbon Copy, and I don't know why). I won't list them all, but the list includes the Diamond Memory Lane, Strymon El Cap and Timeline, Boss DD-20, EHX Deluxe Memory Man with Tap Tempo (1100), and TC Electronic Nova Delay. But I keep buying and selling DD-5's. It's the first delay I ever owned—I bought my first one from a guitar hero of mine—and it was beat to pieces. Sold it to fund a DD-7. NOT the same. Sold it to fund a DD-20. Lot of options.not the same as a DD-5. I tried the DD-3: Sounds great, missed tap tempo and reverse. Bought a Line6 Echo Park: it made noise like I bought another DD-5. It crapped out—I decided to try another list of delays. Then came back to the DD-5. I passed my third DD-5 on to a buddy who was going through a hard time. Went for a whole list of other delays, came back to the DD-5.

Then I tried a DD-5 with JHS's analog mod. It's interesting I guess, I'd rather just have an analog delay. It's nothing special. And you could simulate the sound of it by placing a dirt pedal after the delay. Sold it and bought a fifth—it had power issues. Sold it for scrap and since then I've just been waiting. Today I found a pink label DD-5 in brand new, in-box condition. I will not sell this one. If you have any questions about Boss delays, specifically the DD-5, ask here. I've read people saying how the dd5 is a solid delay for great bright digital sounds, but the dd7 is the one to buy if you want more of an analog type flavor. But to me, and I don't know if this is garbage or what, but to my ears the DD-5 sounds better. I guess its all in what you're trying to do with the delay, but the DD-6 and 7 were warmer, more analog sounding delays. The DD-3 long chip is REALLY analog sounding. The DD-5 gives you this clean digital delay that's a perfect compliment to your analog delays, and a perfect match for the styles of music I enjoy. I normally set my analog delay to long quarters and my DD-5 to short eighths and tap them in at the same time. Trust me Have you tried the new dm-2w. It's a solid buy—but it doesn't oscillate as fast as the original. Been eyeing one of those for a while. But for what it is there are cooler, new pedals out there. Idk what style of music you play but I loved the EQ Devices Dispatch Master as a small delay. But if the chance arose to get one cheap (that or a DOD DFX9 Digital Delay, the first delay I ever played with) I would have to jump on it. After MONTHS using it, I still had only programmed in five of my own presets, and used three nightly. For me, it was best to save money and get three great delays. I also think that while the Timeline sounds great, nothing holds a candle to their El Capistan, and the Timeline struggles to imitate the El Cap. The El Cap is one of the top 5 greatest delays ever created.
