The Boss DD-200 fits snugly in the gap between the DD-7 and the DD-500 while offering many of the features of the flagship 500 the DD-200 has a much more palatable price and much smaller footprint. The DD-200 still maintains the cutting edge technology that has set the DD series apart from its competitors and made the range a must have for any live rig.
The Evolution of Time
The boss DD-200 while retaining all the features that have made the series the stand out delay unit for many guitarists now comes packed with the kinds of connections needed for an ever-evolving music scene. With multi-instrumentalists, DJs, guitarists & much more needing to access high-quality delay Boss have infused modern MIDI technology so a wider audience can appreciate the power that lays in these pedals.
The Boss DD-200 like the 500 offers a stereo input and output allowing you to send two different types of effect to two different speakers. There is also a jack input for an expression pedal for total control of your delay.
The Dirty (or clean) Dozen
The Boss DD-200 comes with 12 delay types from super clean to gritty analogue delays and sweeping echo pads. There is a huge variety and each setting can be tweaked and adjusted to suit your needs. When you find a sound you love you can store them in one of four memory banks which can be accessed at any time via the foot switches.
Loopy For You
The Boss DD-200 comes equipped with a 60-second looper accessed by pressing both footswitches together. The Looper unit is independent of the delay unit so you can loop phrases which are affected by the delays and then play over the loop with different delays or echoes.
Tap, tap, tappy...tap it in
By default, the DD-200’s multi-function footswitches provide access to basic functions like bypass, memory scrolling, tap tempo, and looper control. But you can easily reassign them to hold, warp, and many other functions. External control is also possible via footswitches or an expression pedal, and MIDI I/O is even provided on space-saving mini TRS jacks. Via MIDI, you’re able to chain multiple 200 series pedals and select memories on all of them at once, and also control a wide range of functions from MIDI devices like the ES-8 and ES-5 effects switchers.
Don't Delay...no wait, do delay!
The Boss DD-200 fills a gap between the entry level delay pedals and the flagship model. It features much of the best parts of the DD-500 while being in a more compact housing. The DD-200 is will fit into any musicians home recording set up or live rig perfectly. The DD series has earned a reputation as the leader in not only sound quality but robustness and longevity and this would be a solid investment in anyone's musical future.
