Introducing the DD-8, the most wide-ranging and feature-rich BOSS compact series delay ever. This loaded pedal delivers more of everything—more great sounds, more delay time, more control options, and more connectivity. And it does it all in a standard BOSS pedal that slides easily into any mono or stereo setup. Eleven modes provide delay colors from basic to exotic, plus a looper with unlimited overdub capability and external control support. For maximum versatility in a minimum amount of space, there's no better delay stomp than the DD-8.

Amazing Versatility
Equipped with a diverse selection of delays, the DD-8 packs impressive sonic range into one small pedal. Clean digital delays, vintage analog and tape types, and modulation echo are available, plus specialty delays like shimmer and reverse. There's a new Warm type for softer echo tones, and a +RV type that blends delay and reverb together. Warp is perfect for dynamic ambient textures, while the new GLT type is great for glitchy rhythmic effects.

Stereo to the Max
Everything sounds bigger and better in stereo, and the DD-8 delivers with full stereo I/O support and your choice of three output modes. The default independent mode provides linked parallel delays on the left and right channels, allowing you to maintain the true balance of stereo input sources in the effect sound. There's also a panning mode for ping-pong delay effects, and a wide stereo mode for enhanced spatial depth.

Express Yourself
The DD-8's extensive real-time delay options help bring your music to life. You can tap in tempos with the onboard pedal switch, and control the Warp and GLT modes for unique expressive effects. Adding one or two footswitches unlocks more creative possibilities, like on-demand tap tempo, extended looper control, and a cool Twist effect for soaring echo sounds. Alternately, an expression pedal can be used for continuous control of level, feedback, or delay time—or all of them at once.

Built-In Looper
Having a looper on your pedalboard is a handy thing—it's great for practice, checking sounds at gigs, and creating on-the-fly backing while performing. The DD-8's looper mode has you covered, so you don't have to take up precious space with a dedicated pedal. All looper functions can be controlled with the onboard switch, providing all-in-one operation. But if you prefer to work with extended controls, just connect one or two footswitches to operate the looper’s stop and clear functions externally.

Smart I/O for Easy Setup
The DD-8's inputs and outputs have smart functionality, allowing you to set the pedal for any application simply by connecting cables in different ways. A variety of mono and stereo connections are supported, including discrete dry and effect outputs for wet/dry setups. It's even possible to defeat the dry signal entirely, perfect for delay-only blending in a parallel effects loop.

DD-8 Delay Modes
Analog - Classic analog BBD delay sound.
Standard - Clear digital delay.
Tape - Vintage tape-based delay sound.
Warm - Digital delay with a softer sound.
Reverse - Backwards delay for cool psychedelic effects and other unique tones.
+RV - Digital delay with reverb added.
Shimmer - Pitch-shifted delay for lush, shimmering textures.
Mod - Digital delay with modulation added on the repeats.
Warp - Unique delay with expressive pedal control. Holding the pedal switch increases feedback and level, allowing you to create ambient swell effects.
GLT - Newly developed delay mode that creates glitchy machine-gun effects when the pedal switch is pressed. Adjust the Feedback and Time knobs for a wide variety of sounds.
Loop - Loop recorder with overdub capability and up to 40 seconds of recording time with mono input (20 seconds with stereo input).

Great product!


Awesome sounding delay and looper with solid build quality. Delivered earlier than promised (definitely a plus when you are so exited to get your hands on a new pedal). Thank you!





This is the most versatile delay pedal from BOSS! The DD8 will have you creating sounds and such you never imagined, With new features not available on former BOSS delays , This one will keep you busy all day! A must for delay fanatics!



Good sounding delay from Boss as usual.


All-in-all, it's a great pedal. I bought it because it is smaller than my DD-20, but alas, the DD-20 is still better.



Yes, I would buy This Pedal Again and again


Amazing Pedal



Killer pedal


A classic delay that's as good or better than any "Boutique " type pedal out there.



A great modern evolution of a classic.


The perfect compact delay pedal to put at the end of my mini board.








Best Purchase this year by far!!


I've never like digital delays...until now. Everything you'd want in a delay at a crazy ridiculously low price! Bravo Boss, great products and prices for the working musician.



Boss is the boss for a reason


Really great pedal, mainly wanted it for the loop feature but all the other modes sound great and still have so much to experiment with, definitely one of the best delay pedals out there, can't go wrong with this one.



Journey to the center of your mind with this trippy pedal


I love the Boss DD-8 digital delay pedal. It's a lot of fun to experiment with the different delay types and the feedback and time parameters. I am considering getting an expression pedal to connect to the delay pedal. Excellent pedal for those trying to capture the essence of the psychedelic experience through guitar. recommend ordering a PSA AC adapter (check the instruction manual for the appropriate type). It came with a 9-volt battery already in place so it was nice to be able to use it immediately.
