    I bought one new in '83 or '84, was my first delay pedal. Foolishly sold it a few years ago to fund a guitar, but was lucky enough to reaquire a like new one about three years ago. Best digital delay ever made IMO, still love it:

    This is usually because the switch contactes in the DC jack have been burned out... changing the DC jack usually fixes it.

    I have an early DD-3 (same as DD-2), and it’s still probably my favorite delay pedal of all time. It’s got just the right amount of lofi-ness (it’s 12-bit) to sit behind your guitar playing while still being a relatively clear digital echo. Classic!

    I just picked up a Boss DSD2 - same chip as the DD2 and it's a beautiful sounding delay - I prefer it to my Memory Lane 1 AND Retro-Sonic AD - very warm repeats for a digital

    Same here and I agree, its sits so well against your dry signal - its a perfect little unit.

    Ive had mine since about 1980 something when they first were introduced. I know I stil have the box too. It really is a good sounding delay. I havent actually ever kept any other delay except for this one.

    It replaced the DM2 I was using at that time and Ive never really ever missed that pedal.

    I recently bought one and love it. I had a big chip DD3 way back when and wanted to try out that sound again. Very rich and organic and detailed. It doesn't sound digital in relation to something like a 2290, I have thought about getting a DD5/7 for more pristine sounds, but first I will get another DD2.
