Born of years of premium quality guitar effects production, the Boss DD-500 Digital Delay Pedal is packed to the brim with the most powerful and versatile stompbox delay effects to date. Immense audio quality is combined with deep editing controls, a graphic display, patch memories, MIDI, and so much more to give you the capability to give your music a whole new sonic texture.
The Boss DD-500 comes with 12 delay modes that can be selected easily from the dedicated 'Mode' dial. With this, you have instant access to warm, gritty vintage delays and tape echo through to complex modern delay lines that utilise filters, pitch-shifting and other DSP.
Each setting can be combined with a semi-parametric four-band EQ, modulation, ducking, and many other parameters so that you have precision sound creation on-the-fly with no fuss, perfects for live performance and work in the studio.
Unrivalled sound quality
To ensure you get the best quality of sound available, the DD-500 Digital Delay Pedal utilises a 32-bit/96 kHz digital signal processor. This means you can combine the highest digital power with your 100% analog guitar signal delivering staggering results. There is also a true bypass option that utilises buffered bypass so that delays are not cut off unnaturally when an effects is switched off.
The Boss DD-500 encourages your creativity by way of an intuitive control panel. All of the required control such as mode, bank select, tap tempo, bypass and more are presented clearly for you to change the sound with ease, ideal for live performance or finding a desired sound in the studio whilst jamming.
The built in LCD screen makes it easier for you to see slightly more complex functions such as delay layering, delay time and patch ID as well as visual feedback of any tweaks that you make to a particular sound.
With the Boss DD-500 Digital Delay Pedal, you're not just getting a powerful standalone unit, but something that can be used alongside more advanced setups thanks to the inclusion of MIDI In/Out and USB. The DD-500 can even be used with your favourite DAW for MIDI control as well as patch backups as and when required.
For the best in guitar delay, the Boss DD-500 leaves no stone unturned and promises you years of superior performance all in a compact, good-looking, hard-as-nails unit.
