Boss has a reputation for top-quality effects pedals. With the DD-7, they take the best features of their previous pedals, bring them together, and make improvements, with more modes and controls to really hone in on your ideal effect sound.

Keeping it all together is a casing designed in the classic Boss style, both rugged and compact—one of the reasons Boss pedals are so appealing to gigging musicians.

Let’s start with the controls.

You’ll have the option of adjusting the level, feedback, and delay time, along with a knob for choosing the mode. The potential delay time is longer than what we found with most pedals, up to 6.4 seconds when you turn it up to max.

But here’s where it gets good:

Boss gives you two modes in this pedal, each of which has its own distinctive tone. The Analog Delay has the warm, classic tone of the old school Boss DM-2 effect, while the Modulation Delay gives you a more modern, chorus-like effect.

There is also a “Hold” mode that lets you store up to 40 seconds of music to use as a loop.

The Boss DD-7 was designed for the gigging musician from top to bottom. The sound quality of the effect is one result of this, but it’s also designed to integrate easily into a professional set-up.

There’s a jack for an expression pedal or footswitch, if you want to control the effects hands-free, and the stereo input and output give you more sweep, pan, and signal options.

Overall, this is a versatile delay effect for any level of player.

Features:

  • Dimensions: 3” X 5” X 2.5”
  • Modes: Modulation Delay and Analog Delay
  • Delay time: up to 6.4 seconds
  • Power: PSA-series AC adapter or 9V battery (up to 6 hours continuous use with alkaline battery)
