Great no frills delay pedal


I was looking for a simple and great sounding delay and that is exactly what I got with this unit. I'm very happy with my purchase and Juan from my neighborhood Sam Ash took stellar care of me.



Workhorse Delay


One of the top delays out there. A lot of guitarist that I know use the DD-3. I even saw one on Paul Gilbert's pedal board.



Nice effects pedal. Built to last and sounds good.


I play my Strat thru this into a small 5w Marshall practice amp.



This thing rips!!


Went into Sam Ash out of curiosity because i've heard some great things. Wanted a delay pedal and was pointed in this pedal's direction, and I'm glad that happened. It's very easy to use and get used to, and it's just an overall great pedal. What was great about my purchase though was how helpful each employee was along the way. Always wanted to make sure I was getting the best deal, was confident in my purchase, and were just great guys all around. Definitely would come back, but buy this pedal!



Nice unit and sound....


I haven't been able to experiment with all the settings that are available on this unit but the basic delay sounds just as good as the DM-2 I had used in the early 80's. Not sure why everyone is hip on the analog of the DM-2 but if you're set on that unit, then look to pay 3x as much, assuming you can find a decent unit. I am happy with the DD-3 and would recommend if looking to add this to your set up.



I'm going to buy a second one!


It's wonderful it does what I want/need. I have to buy another one for the second effect I need



Good for the price!


For a Stompbox it gets the job done, but it could be a little cleaner sound.



Long standing clean digital delay!


I consider this one of the classic delay pedals by Boss. It will do great slap back echo and long singing lead lines. It has a more simple set it and forget it setup compared to the more involved delay pedals on the market. This delay to me has a very clean tone that does the job without any fuss. Plus it works great with overdrive and fuzz, when analog might be too fussy. The classic boss chassis is bullet proof and looks timeless.

great basic delay


Very simple but great sounding digital delay. Built like a tank. Excels at slap-back sounds, but also good for ambient.

I'm a bass player and I was on the market for a delay pedal that help me stay/ cut right tru the mix before I got the DD-3 I had the carbon copy analog delay by MXR and even tho is a fantastic pedal for the warm and rich tone that gives to your sound I returned for ONE reason only: it gets lost in the mix when playing live., so when back to the store the guys at my local samash agree with the fact about the MXR so I try all the different delay pedals they had in stock and the DD-3 in my own opinion was the best of the bunch, not even the DD-7 was able to impress me as the DD-3 . I know what some of you are going to say "Analog is the best" Yes analog is good (I use analog pedals on my board) but if what you want to cut right tru the mix digital will be your best option ,I use my not only with chorus and flanger but also with my dist and overdribe to tame it a little bit in conclusion YES im happy with my purchase
