The most versatile and compact of the digital delays!
This was my first 'Real' guitar effects pedal that started my unhealthy addiction to well, guitar pedals. Great for short delays, even better for longer delays and anything in between! I'm addicted to the Modulation setting and the reverse and analog setting are good fun to use as well. At the end of live shows, I usually set the Feedback knob on full and twirl around the delay time crazily to get wacked out spacey effects (with all my gain effects full bore). I use the Boss FS-5U for the tap tempo option which makes setting tempos a breeze with it, I recommend using the DD-7 this way because setting the tempo with the DD-7 by holding the pedal down for 2 seconds can kinda' kill the groove, especially turning it back off (you have to hold it for another 2 secs!). Another neat feature is the Hold Mode, which is useful to have for songwriting riffs and rhythms alone in your room, for live application it falls short, especially if your not good at keeping in time with tapping it on and off. Out of all my pedals this is the one pedal that will never leave my board and I never plan to replace it, the DD-7 has my sound and I cannot recommend it enough!

Great quality and super versatile
Overall an outstanding delay with the best benefits of a digital one - pristine repeats for cutting and defined repetitions, memory for 50s phrase loop - including analog modulation, wich is a satisfying one. Since its a digital delay i would like to fine tune my analogish repeats, and the modulation also, making the decay progressively brighter or darker, wider or narrower. That's why i dont give it 5 stars. But i guess that doesnt fit in this pedal format...
But sure is feature heavy, wich is so awesome. The input A and B have different delay times, and you can use the stereo in's and out's in a lot of different configurations, the expression control/tap tempo is also a great feature that analog pedals dont have (exept the ones that cost almost a whole salary)
Also the hold feature, it was at the time (this was my first effects pedal!) a major selling point for me, i've composed looots of stuff with the dd7's looper, but i find the 50 second memory too little for longer phrases im doing, so i'm looking now to get a dedicated looper. Still, its great to have it in this pedal!
Oh, and you can also use it as a not-bad-at-all-but-pretty-limited chorus! Wich is awesome! Just turn it full wet and bam, full on chorus sound! I've actually tuned my m134 chorus to match the dd7's chorus :p
Overall great bang for buck, super versatile, robust and great sounding!
Very cool delay!
After messing with this delay pretty much constantly for about 2 weeks, It's safe to say I love this pedal. There's a HUGE amount of variation you can get with the regular delay settings, with both the 'D. Time' knob and the knob allowing you to select a certain millisecond time to base your delay off. These features combined allows you to really get the delay your after. The reverse mode is excellent for experimenting and creating ambient type swells, yet creating unique effects. The analogue mode is probably my favourite, as it encapsulates the classic, sought after, Boss DM-2. I'm a huge fan of that pedal, yet as discontinued, tends to fetch huge prices on websites such as eBay and Reverb. The DD-7 also has a modulate effect, adding a light chorus to the delay. The 'Hold' feature puts a 40 second looper into the mix! I wasn't even aware of this when I bought the pedal, so it was a pleasant surprise. I use it as a song/riff writing tool mainly. It works great.
Overall, I love this pedal, and use it a lot! It does everything I'd want a delay pedal to do, for my needs, and does it well. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting a good solid, delay.
Even with the best-selling delays in compact-pedal history, BOSS continues to push the envelope and innovate. The new DD-7 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
- Modulation Delay mode offers natural, chorus-type sounds
- Analog Delay mode models the classic warm BOSS DM-2 analog delay sound
- Tap tempo controllable via external footswitch
- Delay time, feedback, and effect level can be controlled via external Expression pedal (sold separately)
