A must buy pedal.
very useful pedal. 100% needed for your pedal board. The effect level option will determine how loud the delay is, while the feed back option will determine how long the delay goes on for. the delay time will determine how long it takes for the delay to take place. there are four "modes" on the pedal. there are three choices between the milliseconds, 50ml, 200ml and 800ml. there is also a mode called HOLD. This will keep a note, chord or anything else repeating for as long as you want. And thats about it. A MUST BUY

Look no further than DD-3
There are tons of delays on the market these days but only one with outstanding tone, simplicity, durability and decent price. This is of course Boss DD-3. It's been on countless pedalboards, records, gigs and discussed'n'tested everywhere. I have two DD-3s - one with the long chip from 1988 (Japan), the other one from >2010 era. Old DD-3s with mentioned long chip sound much warmer and pristine; a digital delay with analog characteristics, so if you are willing to experiment then find 1986-1990 DD-3 with Blue Label from Japan. Of course I am not saying that newer DD-3 are bad; quite the contrary - still great units!
Despite of being digital, you can totally get some organic repetitions. Going from a metalic reverb sort of sound to a 800 ms delay, it gives a wide range to explore. Also, the HOLD function is very useful when creating some artificial repetitions.
My favourite sounding delay!
I bought this for guitar - though as I am almost exclusively a bass player these days, and none of the mixers at the small gigs I play have much options for vocal effects - I have been using it for my vocals. As far as durability goes - it's Boss. It's been to hundreds of gigs and it's 10 years older than me. It's got some mojo, man.
The first and only delay I've ever owned
I've tried some others, but I've always been happy with this one. Easy to use, it does all the delay types I've ever needed. If you need reverse, loops, shimmer, modulations....this is not your tool. This just makes a great replica of your signal and repeats it as fast and as long as you want it with excellent sonic quality. More than enough for me.
Great warm digital delay
Like the sound of the delay as is clear as digital must be but quite warm as the analog delays obviously not the same but have the perfect balance in between if you need a pedal wich you can gig and make lots of sounds. Also 800ms of delay is more than enough and the hold feature is really useful as a micro loop
Blast into the past with this!
This thing is unbelievable in my opinion because you get the vintage sounding effects with the delay, and the level in which you decide to use makes each setting different from the next. Also it blends good with other pedals, great for making psychedelic music.
