Immerse yourself in the world of enhanced digital delay with the BOSS DD-3T, a reimagined classic for the modern guitarist. This iconic delay pedal, an updated version of the industry-standard DD-3, maintains its original sound and control layout while integrating advanced features for today’s musicians. Loved for its rich, round delay tone, intuitive controls, and simple operation, the DD-3T carries on the legacy of its predecessor, the DD-3, and its ancestor, the world’s first digital delay pedal, the DD-2.
Experience the versatility of the DD-3T with its ultra-easy operation for rapid sound creation. Offering a delay time range from 12.5 to 800 milliseconds, this delay stomp pedal effortlessly caters to your needs for quick setup across different musical genres. Create rhythmic delay effects at the core of various guitar styles with the DD-3T’s built-in tap tempo feature, controllable via the onboard pedal switch or an external footswitch. With up to 800 ms of delay time when receiving tap input, you have the flexibility to set the tap subdivision through the Mode knob, choosing between quarter-note triplet, dotted-eighth note, or quarter note.
The DD-3T isn’t just about creating classic delay effects; it also opens up new dimensions for your setup. The pedal’s direct output jack, now conveniently positioned next to the main output jack, facilitates simpler connectivity for wet/dry arrangements. This feature lets you direct wet and dry signals to different amplifiers, creating a broad, enveloping soundstage. Moreover, if your amplifier or switcher has a parallel effects loop, you can plug a dummy into the direct output, muting the dry sound for effect-only blending.
A testament to BOSS’s commitment to innovation is the inclusion of the “Short Loop” setting, a rebranding of the original DD-3’s forward-thinking “Hold” function. The Hold function was a game-changer in the original DD-3 and DD-2, allowing the capture and continuous play of a sound up to 800 ms long. The “Short Loop” feature lets you not just revisit that classic function but use it in the context of today’s popular live looping style.
With a solid construction and the reliability of BOSS’s five-year warranty, the DD-3T is ready to take its place on your pedalboard. Its compact size of 73 mm width, 129 mm depth, and 59 mm height, and weight of 420 grams including battery, make it a perfect fit for any setup. With an expected continuous use battery life of approximately five hours from an alkaline 9 V battery and a current draw of 70 mA, this pedal is designed to perform and last.
This pedalboard staple is set to continue the legacy of its predecessors while paving the way for future innovation. BOSS’s DD-3T Digital Delay – a marriage of tradition and advancement, providing modern players with a nostalgic yet contemporary tool for sound creation. Whether you’re a seasoned musician or a beginner guitarist, let the DD-3T help you create your signature sound.
