What's the difference between the DD5 and DD7 delay pedal?
The videos of DD5 I've seen are all using BOSS FS-5U footswitches. Can you use a homemade switch as tap tempo for DD5?

Which one do you suggest? Does it make much of a difference?

Some small but significant differences:

7 = Stereo in and out, 40 seconds of looper, more settings
5 = Stereo out only, much smaller looper, fewer settings

Yes you can make a tap tempo switch very, very easily.

If I'm honest, I really, really liked the DD7 over the DD5. I've had all but the DD2 and DD20 in the series.

The DD-5 punches through the mix more, especially for dotted eights. I use mine exclusively for that. If you're looking for that U2/Hillsong tone, the DD5 is better than the DD7 IMO. If you're going for the biggest bang for your buck, it's the DD7.

In terms of sound? The DD-5 is brighter, the DD-7 has more tonal options: tape, analog, etc.
I prefer the DD-5 for clean sounds, it's VERY crisp and present. It doesn't try to sound "analog" and that's its strength. The DD-7 is engineered to be more of an all-rounder.
