I've tried other digital Delays but always seem to come back to Boss for some reason. When they first came out in the 80s I ran down and snapped one up for a $175 which was a TON of money for the 80s. The thing is, it was noisy. There was a noise floor hum that I figured was just part of the design. It's a bummer, I should have taken it back and compared with others but I never did. If finally died on me but still have itt. I bought an early MIJ DD3 which I still have to this day. It has the big chip on it and is different from the MIT DD3 which has the smaller chip. The MIJ is a great basic and warm sounding pedal IMO. I missed the DD4 and DD5 but bought a DD6 pretty cheap which is ok, but the DD7 bumped the DD6 pretty quick. I really like the modulation and some of the other features on the DD7. Still that MIJ DD3 is probably my favorite for just delay tones. Anyone else familiar with and fans of these pedals?
