Product Description

Want a delay pedal that flat-out performs? One that's easy to adjust on the fly, and won't make you jump through hoops to get the delay effects you're looking for? Here it is. Boss built the DD-3 to fit into your pedalboard setup, so you won't have to shove aside your other stompboxes to accommodate it. You get three time settings that take you from chorus-y to 800ms of delay bliss. Plus, you can dial in as much or as little effect as you want. Choose the Hold function , play a figure, hold down the pedal, and the DD-3 will repeat it as you play over it as much as you like. Oh, and did we mention that this thing is built like a tank? It's a lifer. Get it!

I thought i would write a review for this pedal, and i also thought i would cover why in the world would you want a delay pedal with almost no features!?
So, if you are not a seasoned musician and maybe even if you are, you might be looking at this pedal and scratching your head as to why it is still in production. Well, there is definitively reasons. FIRST; the current pedal market today is practically overflowing with delay pedals, how many? Well, you have the option of analog delay, digital analog emulation delay, looping delay, sampling delay, tape echo delay, tape echo emulation delay, and the list goes on and on. They all have there uses, and the all have there excellent examples, like the EHX Memory Man (analog Delay w/ Modulations) But, there isn't really a huge choice of simple, straight-forward, easy to use Digital Delay pedals out there anymore. Analog delay is excellent, but it isn't all that useful for thickening chords, or adding dimension to leads without adding character as well. There is just some things you can't do with Analog delay, and vice-versa. Maybe you play in a live band, and really don't care for trying to go through 6 knob configurations on a badly lite stage in 60 seconds between a song. Maybe all you want is just a good sounding pedal that is capable of short delay, and long delay, and that is it. This is that pedal, it does two things (3 if you count the weird sample effect, only there to recreate the original setup), and does them well. To my ears the quality of the delay is higher than the DD-6 or 7, maybe it is psychological, and maybe it is subconscious gratitude for the lack of silly settings.

I bought the DD3 a few months ago. It worked OK for a few months, then the delay section just died. We have been using this unit in studio the whole time with controlled power input, so the only possible cause of failure is an inherent defect in an internal component. The unit comes with a 5 year warranty. I called the Roland / Boss warranty department for an RMA. Here comes the problem. The 5 year warranty is on parts only. You have to pay for labour at 40 dollars an hour plus shipping and handling both ways. So if they take 2 hours to fix the unit and add 20 dollars for shipping both ways, I would be paying 100 dollars under warranty to fix a unit that costs about that new.

If you are contemplating buying a DD3, keep in mind that the supposed 5-year warranty only covers parts after the first 90 days and is in my opinion therefore worthless.

Even though Boss has released several digital delays since this one was introduced, for me, the DD-3 all I need. The delay sound is clean and clear. The controls are extremely easy to use, and kept to a minimum.

In my playing, I use it in much the same way as Mike Stern does, which basically uses two settings. A very short delay for a slap-back or doubling sound, and a longer delay to give depth and body to the sound.

Some of the newer Boss delays have more features, but I have found them to be unnecessary for my needs.

At the current price, you certainly cannot go wrong with this pedal!

I reviewed many delay effects online before purcahsing. I have a couple other BOSS products and they are easy to use and have lasted years and years of use. The BOSS website makes it easy to review their products and hear some samples. This effect has the right amount of adjustments... does what it needs to in a quick easy to change format. The actual effect is clean and crisp, no overtones, hissing, feedback etc.

Great Delay .Pedal
It is fantastic for the basic stuff
To play rock, blues, jazz is perfect
Or to have some special effects like pink floyd
The other ones that are higher numbers are good also but i think this one is fit for all
Unless you want to play with the star wars band and need more galactic effects jaja
Arrived on time and in good conditions

If you are a stage or studio musician this is a wonderful pedal. Indeed, it is a permanent fixture on the pedal boards of the most discriminating professional players. With good reason! It has just a basic handful of controls, but with them produces a quality delay enhancement. It shouldn't be of any surprise that this pedal has been produced and unchanged for many years. Why change a great thing?

The only one reason I wouldn't recommend this pedal is if you needed tap tempo function, which it doesn't have. My settings are generally pretty static so this isn't an essential feature for me. In fact I previously had a pedal with tap tempo and I never used it. For those who need tap, your money is best spent on a BOSS DD-7 (for a few more dollars of course).

Of course with any BOSS pedal you get a piece of gear that will last thermonuclear blasts and will double as a hammer in a pinch.

5 stars! Bottom line is you will be hard pressed to find a better delay pedal than this one.

I am an old school, Fender amp, Strat and Tele kind of guy and I really dig this pedal. I use it for short slap back echoes and some deep, long repeats and no matter what I throw at it, it always gives a great performance. Very warm signal. Can't say enough good things about Boss.
