BOSS Intros DD-3T, DD-8 Digital Delays

BOSS has introduced the DD-3T and DD-8, two new digital delay pedals.

The DD-3T retains the same sound circuitry and controls as the DD-3, but adds tap tempo and more.

Features:

  • Updated version of the industry-standard DD-3, with enhanced functionality for modern players
  • Ultra-easy operation for fast sound creation
  • Delay time of 12.5 to 800 ms, divided into three ranges for quick setup
  • Tap in tempos with the onboard pedal switch or an external footswitch
  • Short Loop setting for creating phrase loops (same as the Hold function on the original DD-3)
  • Direct output for sending dry and wet sounds to separate amps
  • Main and direct output jacks now positioned on one side of the pedal
  • Five-year warranty

The DD-8 takes over from the previous-generation DD-7 as the most advanced delay in the compact series. It’s been updated with numerous sound modes and features that they say make it the most full-featured delay pedal in its class.

Features:

  • The most advanced BOSS compact series delay ever
  • Eleven versatile modes include basic digital delay, vintage echoes, shimmer, mod, looper, and more
  • Looper offers up to 40 seconds of recording time, overdub capability, and three-pedal operation with external footswitches
  • Three newly developed delay types: Warm, +RV (delay+reverb), and GLT (rhythmic delay)
  • Up to 10 seconds of delay time available with tap tempo input
  • Carryover switch sets whether delay trails continue or stop when the effect is bypassed
  • True stereo I/O and three selectable output modes (independent, panning, and wide stereo)
  • Smart I/O jacks support a variety of connection setups (mono, stereo, wet/dry, wet only, and more)
  • Support for external control with two footswitches or an expression pedal
  • Unique Twist function available in each delay mode via an external footswitch
  • Five-year warranty

Details on pricing and availability are to be announced.

    1. BOSS delays are the standard people use because they’re rock solid and a good value.

      Not sure why Behringer fans feel the need to constantly change the discussion to their Behringer gear. It’s like they feel smarter than everybody else because they bought a knockoff.

      Anyway – lol about the TC pedal. Since they got absorbed by Behringer, you can’t trust their build quality. Like Zaphod mentioned, Behringer’s made blatant copies of 50+ pedal designs, but they don’t copy the originals’ build quality, so you end up with something that looks OK but can’t be relied on.

  1. Boss pedals will still be around after the zombiepocalypse. I had a DSD-2 Digital Sampling Delay that got a major workout for years and never faltered. I sold it as part of a small box of goods that made a guitarist very happy and helped me land a new synth module. That DD-8 has some real muscle. If you’re not into standard modular, this is one good way to lay hands to some organic flexibility. Three of these in a pedalboard = instant “Forbidden Planet.”
