Product Description

This compact pedal provides a digital delay effect with outstanding quality equivalent to that of a dedicated rack-mount delay unit. In addition to 3 delay time modes, a Delay Time control is furnished, giving you speedy, precise adjustment of delay time continuously within a range of 12.5ms to 800ms. The HOLD function repeats the delay indefinitely.

About Boss Pedals

The history of Boss reads like the history of guitar effects. From their legendary CE-1 chorus pedal (the big gray box that started it all) to the world's favorite line of compact pedals, they've been responsible for more guitar innovations than just about anyone else.

Boss's compact pedal line-up began in 1977 with the classic OD-1 Overdrive. Its warm, smooth overdrive sounds and breakthrough Boss pedal features (heavy-duty construction, rubber pads on top and bottom, recessed control knobs, silent switching, a built-in LED, and easy battery replacement) immediately set it apart from other stomp boxes on the market. It established the masterful design for all other Boss effects pedals since.

Throughout the years, Boss has continued to define the cutting edge of guitar effects. Double-layer circuit boards allowed pedals like the DD-5 Digital Delay to deliver studio-quality effects comparable to rackmount units. They recently brought bassists and guitarists the first bass synthesizer in a compact pedal, the SYB-3. On their 20th anniversary they proudly introduced the OD-3 Overdrive, a pedal that takes the smooth, dynamic overdriven tones of the legendary OD-1 to a higher level. Like all Boss products, it is a level of sound quality and durability that is unrivaled.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (127 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Enormous Sound Range Possible with DD-3"
Sound: Exactly what you would expect from a Digital Delay Pedal. Feature: The medium and long delay times are marvelous for my purposes. It's easy to find the balance you need between the effect level, the feedback, and the delay time. I have yet to figure out the hold feature, but that is a minor gripe. Ease of Use: An incredibly wide range of sounds can be made with this pedal. Once you experiment a little with each knob, you can easily find the one you're looking for. Quality: This is a Boss pedal. Need I say more? Value: If money is tight, this may not be the one for you. There are other delay pedals that run cheaper. But this product delivers on every penny you pay for on both sound and build quality. Manufacturer Support: I have no experiences with support (I haven't needed it). The Wow Factor: This pedal looks and feels like every other boss pedal I've used, but it's a formula that works. The physical design isn't breaking any boundaries, but it's what's inside that counts. Overall: I was looking for a digital delay pedal that could create ambient, sound-wave like effects heard in music like 'This Will Destroy You' and 'Mogwai'. I trust Boss quality, listened to some demos on YouTube, and decided on this. I'm incredibly happy with my purchase. If you listen to post-rock and are looking for a similar sound, you cannot go wrong with the DD-3.
Style of Music: Post-Rock, Ambient, Indie

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The right digital delay choice for me..."
Sound: There are some great settings on the DD-3, and once you find them, you will find yourself hitting them nearly every time you solo or go into a punchy rhythm section. Still, the DD-3 is digital, although a warm digital, and cannot replace a good analog delay. There is a place for both in many rigs, but the DD-3 is a great digital delay no doubt. Feature: Lacks a tap tempo, and I find the hold function useless; but, then again it has all the essential settings. Ease of Use: Easy to dial in a great delay sound in every time frame. Don't be afraid to turn up the level knob, as it is a bit low from 0 to 50%. Quality: It's Boss quality, and Boss pedals have always been dependable for me. Value: Here is where all pedals lose in my opinion. All pedals are over priced for what they are. But the DD-3 specifically is fair, if a bit overpriced. Manufacturer Support: Never had to call for support. The Wow Factor: More of the pros I look up to have this pedal than do not have it. Overall: The DD-3 has the right qualities where it counts, even if it is a bit low on features and price, it is still staying on my pedalboard, which is tough as I only use 3 pedals.
Style of Music: Rock, Blues, Folk, and Country
