DD-500 Digital Delay

DELAY
LOOPER

Description

The Boss DD-500 is one of the few Boss pedals which are, because of their size, less pedalboard friendly. Therefor, it offers up to 10 seconds maximum delay time, tap tempo and tape emulation. Other features of the stereo pedal that allows to choose a true bypass or a buffered processing, are modulation, expression pedal and midi input. Furthermore, you can lead different delays (modulation models) on several channels and run the pedal serial as well as parallel. All things considered, the 9V pedal with integrated looper provides an extremely extensive menu including tone shaping options. Nevertheless, the Boss DD-500 which is still produced today is not really legendary and its sound is quite sterile. This is why this digital delay is a 3 of 10 on my cult factor scale.
