I bought 2 DD-3s in the past year. A great simple delay pedal
I still use my DD-3 as my main Digital Delay. Great pedal.
You have no worries about gigging with an old Boss pedal. Many, many people gig with Boss stuff from the 80's and 90's.
hell no it isn't. I own a DD-2 and am looking for a DD-5. I also own a CE-2, BF-2, & CS-2. Boss makes great sounding and dependable pedals. I recently picked up a DM-2x and love it as well.
I still have and use my DD-3 from the '80's. I actually feel so "old" when I bring the DD-3, along with my other Boss pedals, in the BCB-6 carry case. Come on.... All you guys who grew up and played in the '80's know exactly what I'm talkin' 'bout LOL. I still remember seeing those pedals/case being used by Hiram Bullock and Sid McGinnis on Late Night with Letterman. I also have a pedaltrain board with "boutique" pedals but even on that board, you'll still find one of my older Boss pedals in the rotation. Anyway, I've never been one to beat on my equipment, but with routine cleaning, contact cleaner, compressed air, etc. I've yet to have an issue with these pedals. Sound great for what they are, and after 30+ years they still deliver.
MIJ DD3 with the old DD2 circuit came in the mail yesterday
only got to play around with it for a few minutes last night, but it sounded breddy gud. very much reminiscient of other boss delays, but the way the repeats blended was very nice.
I own an Echoplex EP3, a Korg SDD 3000 rack, a big box DMM w/ MN3005's, and I still use my old Boss DD2 on some stuff.
I also think there's something to be said for the fact that Pete Cornish uses the DD2 as the base for his T.E.S.
If it works for you, who cares what other people think?
Personally, I'm digging the DD-500 but my delay needs are a bit more esoteric.
I've owned a DD2 for many years and really like it, but if I had to pay big bucks for it nowadays, I'd probably use something else. I have an El Capistan and mostly use that.
what are they going for these days?
i have 2 dd3s and 2 dd5s
I honestly don't understand the question. This day and age? We're hardly in the golden era of pedals haha. Almost everything released today is judged by how close it comes to something made 20-30 years ago. Anyhoo, yes, definitely try the DD-X pedals. Fantastic delays.
John Jorgenson used a DD-2 and Dimension C in a BCB-6 with the Hellecasters and continues to do so with his rock band today.
it was less than $120 with shipping fam. probably the 6th or 7th most expensive delay pedal i've had but the repeats work so good.
