Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great delay, good introductory looper."
Sound: Sounds good. Some of the settings don't sound significantly different from each other, but overall the sound is nice. Feature: Feature rich. All kinds of delay options on this pedal. For the bread, you can't beat it, I don't think. I would love to be able to hold a loop of reverse delay and play over it, but you can't have everything. Ease of Use: If you've ever used delay before, then you'll already know how to use the delays. It takes some getting used to to get the looper to time correctly. A little practice will do it, but you'll likely do it wrong once in a while. you have to let go of the switch at the exact right time. It can be a challenge. Quality: Seems solid. Value: For the cash I spent for a B-stock unit, I'm super pleased. Full featured delay pedal and minimally featured Loop pedal in one. I have spent hours and hours and really gotten my money's worth already. The Wow Factor: The design is not my style, but it's not ugly or anything. Overall: Love this pedal. I wish I had two of them. It has already improved my soloing to play along with a loop, but more than that, it's just loads of fun. It's obviously not the greatest looper, far from it, but it's got enough features to be absolutely addictive. Especially if you like to make lots of crazy noise. If you love psychedelia, buy this. If you just want a looper, spend more on something else.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Better the Boss"
Sound: This delay has something for everybody. I personally like the Tape and modulation modes. But it has a lot of versatility packed into it. No tone loss with this pedal either on or off. You can shape your delay exactly how you want to. A crisp exact reproduction of your sound or a warm dark fading delay and a good bit in between. Feature: The looper is great for practice and even can be used with a band. Its very simple to operate as well. Tap tempo is nice feature too. Of course true bypass with the ability to have trails after you shut off the delay is really nice. Quality: Solid built pedal. Very heavy duty and seems built to last. Even more so than Boss. Value: $150 seems very fair for a delay of this quality. The Wow Factor: I choose this one over the DD7 because of the true bypass. Yes, the Boss has a little more looper time but the sound quality seemed better on this pedal. Plus true bypass made it an easy decision. Overall: Great pedal, very happy with my purchase. My only complaint is you can't use the looper and the delays at the same time.
Style of Music: rockish
