On the [Gear page](http://www.billyduffy.com/gear/boss-dm-2-analogue-delay-pedal/) of Billy Duffy's website, he says, "People used to bribe the producer to tell them what pedals and effects I used to get the guitar sound in the beginning of the song, that whole kind of mystical Easterny sound. The story that goes along with that is, it was a whole BOSS pedal board. I definitely had two delays in it, ‘cause there are two delays working against each other —long and short delays. It’s 400 and 800 milliseconds, approximately, at the beginning of the song."more
I have a Fender Custom Shop Telecaster based on a ’62. I also have a ’61 Gibson SG my girlfriend bought me. I string them with D’Addario NYXLs, gauged .010-.046. My amps are ’67 and ’68 blackface Fender Pro Reverbs. I have a Boss DM-2 Delay, a Wampler Ego Compressor, a Walrus Audio Plainsman for clean boosts, and, for overdrives, I currently use an Oddfellow Effects Caveman Drive and a Jetter Jetdrive. My tuner is a Sonic Research strobe.more
Vintage analog delay pedals have made a comeback in a big way and the iconic Boss DM-2 leads the pack. The three button layout of repeat rate, intensity, and echo have become familiar, but in the early '80s, bringing this much delay to a compact pedal was a major step forward. You see a wide range of prices for DM-2 as the chips used in the circuit changed a bit during its production.
this is a classic of 9 volt analog delays, right in there with the AD9, everyone knows this pedal... maybe not as badass as a memory man... I got this in a trade and sold it for a good amount of money. Honestly, as nice as the dm2 is, it doesn't do anything that's distinguishable from like a carbon copy once you're playing with a band. But if people want to pay big bucks for originals? hey? Ill take that money.
