    I've got the 600ms version and IMO the noise reports are much ado about nothing...if I max out all my controls I hear a slight ticking sound which is not even very loud...I would never use these settings...maybe all DBDs are different but mine works fine and sounds great...

    I do not notice any kinda of extraneous noice during normal use...my usual setting are the level at 8.30 repeats at about 8.30-9.00 and delay time at 1 Oc...

    Chow,

    I've got the 600ms version also and completely agree.

    I've got a 570 ms JAM Pedals delay and I rarely use it above 300 ms. If you want to set your delay time more precise, pick up the 450 ms version.

    IF I am not wrong the 450ms version is closer to the delay chip manufacturers recommendations. Having said that the manufacturers R&D is based on full bandwidth operation and a guitar don't really need that.

    But I agree those that claim shorter delay time results in easier operation.

    Thanks for the responses. Thats what I wanted to hear because I've got a 600ms version coming in the mail and I didn't want any surprises. This sounds like great pedal and it will be taking the place of my DD-20.

    Thanks for the setting Seegs, I'll have to try that one out.:AOK

    at the settings that seegs is using the ticking noise is not noticeable.
    I use that setting myself, classic 'hero' delay sound :)
    however if you have the level up beyond 2, and the delay time beyond 2-3 you will hear a ticking, as well as this washy noise that comes after/during the delay trails.
    Once I realised the limitations of the pedal and I started working with it rather than against it, thats when I really started to appreciate how good it is.
    Another great thing is how it self-oscillates.
    just my 2cents...

    Anyone know when, serial number wise, the 450 ms version started?
