The True Boss of Delay Pedals!

Back in 1984, Boss brought you the famous DD2 digital delay pedal -- and with the Boss DD-7 Digital Delay, that legendary effect has been updated with new features and tons of tonal options for your signal. Dual input and output jacks allow for stereo opportunities, a sweet set of delay settings lets you craft an almost limitless span of sonic textures, and that rugged Boss outer metal chassis will keep you stomping gig after gig. There are virtually endless possibilities once you incorporate this amazing delay effects pedal into your signal chain.

The Boss DD2 Delay Sound -- Based on the Roland SDE-3000

Back in the mid-'80s, Boss introduced the classic DD2 digital delay pedal, which quickly became a staple in the world of digital delay effects for guitarists. This pedal was focused on a chip used in Roland's SDE-3000 rack-mounted digital delay, harnessing a 12-bit AD converter to yield effects to make your head spin. The Boss DD-7 takes these facets and adds more features to give you even more sonic avenues to wander down. This sweet delay pedal is no one-trick pony -- it's ripe for experimentation.

Cool Controls for Shaping Your Delay

The control layout of your DD-7 is reasonably simple -- effects level, feedback level, delay time, and mode controls give you everything you need to shape the character of your delay. The effects level knob dials in how much of the effect mixes into your signal, the feedback level lets you delay your already-delayed signal to add multiple repetitions, and your delay time determines the length of the delay. The mode control features several millisecond settings, a hold setting, a modulate setting for chorus-like sounds, an analogue setting to mimic the DM2, and a reverse setting for some trippy '70s-styled licks.

Going Hands Free

To get the most out of this workhorse of a pedal, a separately sold external footswitch and expression pedal can be utilized to take advantage of tap-tempo features and seamlessly change the levels of your delay time, feedback, and effect level in the middle of your set. Also, the hold setting on the DD-7 gives you up to 40 seconds of input to be recorded, which allows for plenty of layering and interesting combinations in just a few simple stomps.

Using the Stereo Output Setting

For either live or recording settings, the option of stereo outputs opens the door for boatloads of possibilities. You can do interesting mixes of your dry and wet signals, create intriguing spatial audio sweeps, and have a lot fun just playing around with true left and right panning options for your output signals.

A good delay pedal is a guitarist's best friend -- and the DD-7 is a great one!

Product Description

Even with the best-selling delays in compact-pedal history, Boss continues to push the envelope and innovate. The DD7 takes the best features from its predecessors and expands the creative potential with Modulation Delay mode, classic modeled Analog Delay mode, External pedal control options, longer delay time, and more.

Expanded Delay Time

Up to 6.4 seconds of delay time is available with the DD7, a marked increase from its predecessor. In addition, Hold mode allows up to 40 seconds of input to be recorded for creating "sound on sound" performances.

Delay Modes

The DD7 is equipped with two innovative delay modes. Modulation Delay provides chorus-flavored sounds. Analog Delay offers a modeled simulation of the classic BOSS DM2, beloved for its characteristic warmth.

External Control

For hands-free control of the DD7, an external footswitch and Expression pedal (sold separately) can be used. Tap tempo can be controlled from an external footswitch, while delay time, feedback, and effect level can be changed on the fly via Expression pedal.

Stereo Output

Create amazing effects with the DD7's stereo output, such as spatial audio sweeps via true stereo panning. You can also use the stereo outputs to create separate dry and wet signal paths - handy for recording and live-performance control.

5 out of 5 (25 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A great buy!"
Overall: To be very honest, I regretted selling mine, I went on a venture thinking there are tons of other delay pedal that are better and there are! but as far as reliability issues and consistency,The Boss DD-7 surpasses allot on this price range and function capability's. I had two of these on my pedalboard set differently and it was great,no tone loss or I couldn't even tell. That's coming from a very overly picky person concerning tone! If you got one of these,don't sell it unless its a matter of life or death situation. Now I gotta save up all over and deal with my intermittent, made in china, visual sound dual tap delay. I have bunch of other boss pedals and not one of them ever crap out on me for as long as I've own Boss pedals over the last 25 yrs of playing live and studio! go figure I'll stick to the Boss from now on....
Style of Music: pretty much all or wherever a loud mean guitar is needed. he! he!

"Great Delay Pedal!"
Sound: I love this pedal. The sound quality is great and the modes really get your imagination going. For me it's a must have. Feature: I usually mess around with de Feedback and Delay Time knobs and I get some very intersting sounds from it! One thing that is cool also is when I turn off the delay the sound doesn't break and I can continue to play without the delay. The tap tempo is really easy to use. But there is something that could be better. When on Hold for recording I can't use the Delay. That's a real shame... Ease of Use: Very easy to use. 4 knobs. Level Feedback Delay Time Mode Simple! Quality: It's a Boss! I have dropped the pedal a few times and it's still workin' A little bit of the paint went of and the Level knob is a little beated up. It's rock solid! Value: It's worth it! Manufacturer Support: Never needed (and I guees I never will)
Style of Music: Alternative Rock, Funk
