DD-500 Double D's are always fun

A workhorse of a delay with considerable options. Capable of weird things as well as just basic good quality delay modes. Weird is not always musically useful. You will drive this around and try out all the weird things then I imagine return to a more basic delay rendering. Like most I have had a lot of delays and I needed another one with my rejection of the last greatest do-all multi pedal (which never ceases to disappoint). Anyway the DD-500 for the cost has features I look for and must have in a delay many others do not have such as 1) accurate ms readout, 2) amazing number of presets (2x99), 3) many modes of delay, 4) modulations and special features, 5) top shelf chipware-bandwidth-fidelity, 6) phrase looper, 7) easy to use editor and easy tweak options, 8) updatable firmware. While you may come and go on the more exotic delay modes this has, it is certain its DDL. analog and tape modes will carry the unit and at the end of the day that is really what you want in a delay. The other bells and whistles are just nice for some embellishments.Sincerely at $ w the above list of features, it has more than a lot of units costing more and nothing gets close to it at the cost. An all knob delay with no readout and limited presets was just not going to do it for me, no matter the quality. When you want 440ms or a 5th that is what you want. It is probably not better quality than a Strymon or Eventide flagship but at the price level you are not going to beat it. I would consider it "the delay" at this point in time.

Incredibly featured

Absolutly love this delay, fully midi controllable and easy to navigate switching and interface, last delay pedal I'll ever need, feels very solid and looks even better.

Timeline hunter

This thing is killer. I've had a ton of delay pedals (T.C. Electronic, JHS Panther & Panther Cub, DD20, Timeline, El Cap, the list goes on). The DD500 is very comparable to a Strymon Timeline for $150 less. It sounds absolutely incredible, it's easy to use, it's smaller than a Timeline. If you are looking for a killer delay for a great price with more than 4 presets, this is the unit for you. Sweet water takes care of you so order it from them. I know people that ordered one from another big gear vender and they are still waiting for theirs. BUY THIS PEDAL.

BOSS new delay flagship

Hands down-this pedal is THE delay pedal. The most versatile patch editor ever. Sound and tone quality are outstanding. Easy to set up own parameters. Tera Echo, Tape Echo, SFX, Pattern - you name it. BOSS seems having taken the edit display from the Roland Sonic Cell - intuitive and easy to go. Five star rating is underestimating the top notch quality of this killer pedal. Check it out yourself and get addicted to it!

Serious Delay

I was looking for a pedal that did the Timeline "Dual" setting, so I bought a Timeline. It took me several attempts and some time to sort-of dial in what I was looking for. I needed another delay for my worship band so I was excited to see the DD 500 was soon to be released. I reserved mine and it came in early (It's Sweetwater so of course it came in early). I was really happy with the construction and the fact that I did not need a proprietary power supply. It even came with batteries. The delay is so simple to use, I was able to get the sound in my head in about 6 minutes. Naming and saving patches is a breeze and I'm able to save weekly set lists in its 69 user presets banks (there are 99 banks and the patches repeat after bank 30). This is an awesome pedal and I'm seriously considering purchasing a second for my other rig.

Sweetwater Advice

Brian Dillon

As a long-time guitarist, one of the things I'm always looking for is a great delay pedal that covers all of the bases. A buddy recommended the BOSS DD-500, and I have to admit I'm impressed. Thirteen totally different delay modes include fully tweakable parameters, and the default presets are excellent. The quality is also good enough that I can even use the DD-500 in the studio, where MIDI control makes it a fun effect to patch into my Pro Tools sessions.
