Is there an issue with the 600ms version? Whats this ticking thing I've heard about the pedal?
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...
i also never dealt with any of the issues i read about and mine is #11.
GREAT little delay
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?
love my 450
